She wants to break out of the friend zone

Our CPF (Confused Pink Friend) wants to know what to do about a boy. One day, he seems to like her and the next day they seem like buds more than crushes.

Dear PLS,
i keep getting signs from my crush that he likes me but the next day were always back in the friend zone, what do i do?
Confused Pink Friend

I think that boys are different. News flash, eh? Girls seem to think about this kind of stuff and want to talk about it more. Boys seem to be all over the map. I think they don't know what they want as clearly as girls. However, I also know that I change my mind quite a bit when it comes to boys. (Except for Forrest, of course).

I say stay in the friend zone and you never know what will happen tomorrow, next month or next year. Any other advice for CPF?

Think pink!

i asked my crush out in diguise. i asked my friend to name a nice boy and i said i would go out with who ever she said. she said my crush so i said ask him for me... he said yes! caution: this only works if your friend thinks that boy is nice! =]

I would just ask him if he likes you. If he says no, just move on.

I know this boy in my class that I like and keep it in the friend zone. I promised to myself boys later education first. I did that so I get a good school, job, and boyfriend (maybe even husband).So I keep it in the friend zone.

Crikey! Um, I sort of know what u mean. I have had a crush on this boy i have known since we were babies and it has gone on for soooo long I'm worried that either i'm in love or I'll never like, like anyone again. But thats not immportant. I know the gut i like had a crush on me once but now thats gone away. I am glad I'm still his firend cos if we did go out things would get weird with his parents and mine but part of me dosn't care! I guess consider how much the friendship means to you and do you really wan't to lose that?

When it comes to guys i think the best thing you can do is not act too needy or pushy. Right now the "friend zone" may be the best place for you and your crush because if you're a really good friend to him and he knows he can trust you and talk to you, it may show him what an awesome girlfriend you would be. That's what happened with me and my crush. We stayed freinds for a long time and I was starting to think that he was never going to ask me out and then one day he told me that i was like his best freind ever because he was able to talk to me and be hiself around me and then he asked me out. Hope this helps!

I think friend zone is the best option.
You can't really have a boyfriend till your 18.
Thats when your maturity rises.
Asking him out or asking him if he likes you is VERY immature.
Remember, friends last 4 ever
Crushes or boyfriends last for (max) 1 month

take things into your own hands... try showing him signs that you really like him, maybe you're a little shy so he thinks hes doing something wrong, don't let him think that!!!!

hope this helped,

Try staying in the friend zone. I read once that staying friends with a guy is like sucking on a tootsie roll and becoming his girlfriend is like taking a bite and then chewing and chewing and chewing. Which lasts longer?

The main question is, do you want him to like you or do you want to just be friends? For the "Friends" path, hang low, my abbreviation for "Don't talk to him that often, and avoid eye contact but not in a shy way". For the "More than friends" option, try approaching him more often, smiling a lot, and making conversation.
