Question No. 7: What's a lovestruck girl to do?

Has this ever happened to you? You like someone. They like someone else. Boo!

That's what's going on with Lovestruck and she'd like some advice.

Dear PLS,
A year ago, a boy in my class liked me. After a few months,he announced to the whole class that he liked another girl. After a few days, I liked him back. My friends say that he still likes me. But some of my other friends say that he still likes other girls. What should I do?
Lovestruck, 11


Sometimes, I wonder: If I could read minds, would I? What I mean is do I really want to know how my crush really feels about me? It sounds like Lovestruck wishes she could read her crush's mind. But you can't - all you can do is be kind and friendly. I think if he likes you, it will show, even if he's shy. And if you don't get good vibes, still be your nice, friendly self but move on.

Agree or disagree, Pink Locker girls?

Think pink!
Jemma

Liking people is definitely one of the most confusing thing to deal with. It's not rocket science, though! I would stay friends with the guy. If he ends up liking you, great! If he doesn't, then at least you didn't go all out into your relationship. The thing is that you're sure about your own feelings, right? So you have to let him come out when he's sure about his own. If you truly like him, you might wait for his opinion to be expressed, and after you've had enough of his silence, move on.

hey kid, hang in there. its just gossip. he might like you but he might of said he likes the other girl because he knew that you knew he liked you. remember, boys are like poker players but instead of their cards they hide their feelings. to boys those are secrets.

this guy in my class used to like me and I liked him. I was heartbroken that the next year he didn't like me. But i never gave up and i think he likes me a little bit more!

the only reason i know how to respond is because it was in my favorite show-glee :)- say something like... (using jemma as an example) forrest,your...(say whatever you like about him,if you just like a guy cause hes hot-get over it)...and i really really think we could make a good couple (if he has a girlfriend say)... better than you and your (his girlfriends name.)
this information comes from a tomboy-i know what i'm talking about.

what are you stressed about, Lovestruck? When i liked a boy in my class, he was dating one of my friends...i didn't care because i texted him i liked him anyway! He sent me this long text but my stupid phone deleted it! Anyway, make HIM guess who YOU like and then if he guesses everyone other than himself, (in between switching classses) say "IT'S YOU DUMMY!" and if he says "you DO!?" and goes after you, then the rest is a piece of cake! P.S. practice first, NEVER mad lib, ALWAYS be yourself

I RLLY like this guy in my Class, and I think he likes me too! In fact, EVERYBODY thinks he likes me too! But the prob is, he's one of my really good guy friends, and I play sports with him all the time! Plus, I asked him who he likes, (but I was just joking around) and he said he'll only tell his two best friends! (Who Are Also My rlly good friends!) I mean, he's told me about the girls he's liked throughout the year, and one was even my BFF! but now, he won't tell me ANYTHING! Does anyone know how to help, and what this means?? Boys Are confusing! Thx! =) =P

To Staples18,
i think the reason he wont tell you anything about the girl he likes is probably because its you. if you think about it its a little embarrassing for him to tell you. Sure he's liked lots of girls including your BFF, but the only reason he hasnt told you anything is because at that time when he was telling you who he fancies, it wasnt you. and now that it is you (there's a high chance) its embarrassing and he would be quite shy. And because he is shy it must show that he likes you a LOT. So just wait and im sure he'll come around, but if he doesn't then just confess. dot worry about getting your heart broken because if you're honest then positive things will come out. hope this helps!!! KEEP YOUR HOPES UP! GTG LEXIE OUT! xxx

He may of said that to see your reaction because he wanted to see if you liked him for sure. This may sound unlikely but it is possible...

Beth,
It depends because the girl he broke up with might not like you very much if you go out with him.Wait a few weeks, take some time get to know him a bit more before you agree to go out.Maybe you could also ask that girl(or her friend) if she got over him?

I am 11 and have the same problem as the person who asked the question what is a lovestruck girl to do but I know this boy use to like me and now I like him but he likes a prettier girl I think once you get to sixth grade you have to be pretty to have a boyfriend and now I am not as pretty as I was in forth grade and now I have started to have feelings for boys.
