A+ says: Hey, he's not my crush!

It's tough enough when you like someone and and people find out. But it might be even more annoying when someone says you're crushing on someone that you don't even like that way. That's A+'s problem:

Dear PLS,
A boy in my grade is spreading rumors that I like him,but I don't! I do the school weather with him so I can't avoid him and he's turning my friends against me! What should I do?

I think this problem will be solved if you just remain calm. Tell your friends clearly, without losing your cool, that you don't have a crush on him. Remind your friends that sometimes people have to work together, like on teams or group projects, and it doesn't mean they are a couple. I think if you say it calmly and don't make a big deal about it, things will eventually cool off. You might even tell the boy - calmly and politely - that you would like him to stop talking about you.

What else, Pink Locker girls?

Think pink!

Tell him you don't like him that way and that it is not nice to spread rumors about you. Then tell your friends you are not crushing on him. Be firm but not mean.

That boy sure is annoying! You could tell him who your real crush is if you like so he gets a different perspective. Don't give him the silent treatment or I act all "I hate you" or else he notices you more and takes it in a different way.
Hope I helped!

Jemma is entirely correct tell your friends calmly that you don't have a crush on him and if they don't believe you their not acting like good friends.
You could also tell the boy to stop spreading rumors about you that aren't true .
You'll be surprised how they react!
Think pink!

I think that if he spread rumours like this there are two reasons. One he has a really big ego and just wants to annoy you or two he likes you and hopes that by saying this you will admit you like him (when you like someone you always think they like you) So during both reasons I think you should confrunt him and tell him you don't like him. This will die down soon.

Well either talk to ur teacher or a parent and yell ur teacher wats going on and maybe she will talk to the boy about it. Or u can also work it out with the boy and tell him that wat he is doing is wrong and could hurt someone. Talk to some one you are very close to

The guy probably likes you, tell him politely that you only like him as a friend, tell your friends that you dont like him like that, and then ignore the rumours until they die down. Also isnt it annoying how whenever you are friends with a guy everyone assumes you like him? Smile and think pink!

Hi! I'm in 7th grade. I have a friend who tells me everything from who he likes to theses super serious things that I probably shouldn't mention here. We usually talk online. Anyways, theres these guys constantly making fun of him at school. He gets upset pretty fast, which makes it even easier for them to get to him. He doesn't deal with his feelings well. Every time they make fun of him, I wanna say something, but I'm afraid that it will backfire on him and they will make fun of him more because there is a girl sticking up for him. He's actually pretty sensitive, but he doesn't want anyone to know. He has only one other friend who's a guy who knows some of the stuff he goes through, and he sticks up for him sometimes, but I feel like I'm not being a good friend if I don't stick up for him! What do you girls think? I don't want to make his bullying worse, but I really hate how it affects him. Stick up for him and risk making it worse, or keep quiet and let him suffer?

I'm in 7th grade too, and I agree that sticking up for him will probably make things worse because they also might assume you like him as more than a friend. You're definitely a good friend for worrying about him, so I just suggest finding lots of ways to cheer him up and support him. You could also tell him you're worried about how other people make fun of him and ask if theres any way you can help. Also, ask if he's told an adult who can help.
God bless you guys!!!

Be a true friend and stick up for him. Who cares if the bullies are all like "oh you need a girl to stick up for you?"? You can just say something like "Got a problem with girls?... oh yeah I forgot oh course you do, girls don't like you!" ;)
If you do not want to do this, tell an adult in private so that they can resolve the issue.

Make sure that you tell someone, because its not nice to spread rumors that are not true! But just stay calm and tell everyone nicely, don't be mean about it, just explain the truth to everyone and it will all work out :D

@ anonymous (the one that thinks the weather sounds cool) The weather is so kids at my school will know what the weather will be that day and the chances of outdoor recess. We get a sheet of paper,go on a computer,get the weather and predict the chances of outdoor recess then when school starts we say it over the intercom.

Take a deep breath and when someone says, "You like him!" Just say, "Actually, I don't. That's just a rumor. And that's old news anyways, did you hear about..." and then say something that's going on in the real world (like something you heard in the news). When all else fails, just remember that these people are being immature and the rumor will fade out anyways.

Help me!!!
I like the most popular guy in my grade and we used to flirt all the time and so in May we both realized we like eachother and we like became a couple I guess? Anyway but that was on the Last day of school and so we spent the whole summer like texting and it was amazing and he was so nice and sweet and funny and it was perfect and so then school started a month later in july and we didnt talk once! And he flirted with all these other girls and we didn't say one word to eachother and i guess it was both of our faults. So then on the last day of july we broke up and he was mad at me for dumping him and I missed him so much. So then a week ago I apoligized for being a jerk because I liked him since day one of sixth grade. And i said I still like you I hope we can be friends. And then an hour later he read the text and apoligized too and said he still really likes me. So we've only had two days of school since that and we talked some of it but other girls still flirt with him and sit next to him. I REALLY REALLY like him and I don't know what to do! I want to get back together because I REALLY REALLY like him but I'm not sure if he does. Seventh grade is so confusing!!! HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so I realized that I didn't really explain the story. So, there's this guy in my class. He used to always have the girls at his side and still had a bunch of guy friends. He even fooled me for a while. Then the other guys started to tease him for hanging out with girls, so this year he decided to ditch us and be a total jerk, spreading rumors. The guys stopped teasing him but most of the girls hate him now and out of no where the started bullying. So my friend started getting constantly bullied. His other friend started sticking up for him and now they won't leave him alone either. Everyday they call him names and make fun of them both. Sorry this was so long!

P.S. Thanks for all your opinions, superbunny, Anonymous, Pinkadink, amd A Small Flower!

This is for strongereveryday.... ok so if u texted him and he said he likes u, then u should both be fine. Try texting him again saying " im sorry for dumping u but i still like u" since u said he liked u too, then ask him if he wants to get back together. He will probably so yes since he told u he liked u. Then just nicely say that he shouldnt flirt with girls since u guys are already dating. Hope this helps u

Shy Supergirl, tell him that you dont like him that way and can you just be friends? Youre going to hurt his pride whatever you do, but this way you dont get his hopes up first. Blackblood wolf, unfortunately, theres nothing you can do :( but whatever you do, dont try to break them up! But maybe make friends with the boy and hope that one day he'll realise he actually likes you. Try to get over him though. Smile!

I know! I find grade 7 very confusing too! I don't know what to tell you because I'm breaking up with my boyfriend because I can't deal with the drama of dating and he doesn't make me feel loved at all. I'm also thinking of going to an all-girls high school.cutiepie4eversophie's advice seems very good, though.
God bless you guys!!!

@Blackblood wolf: usually relationships don't last very long. So maybe you wanna just hang in there until he's single? Otherwise there are plenty of other fish in the sea. Don't worry, you'll find that special someone!

There is two reasons this annoying boy may do this. But the most common is that he like you but he has a massive ego and wont admit to your face. Tell him to stop it, but be firm not mean. You never know, maybe, just maybe, he will listen if you tell that to him, not the girls. If he doesn't listen, TELL AN ADULT! And if the adult doesnt get around to doing something sbout it,

Keep telling adults until one of them does something!

I hope I helped :)

Dear A+,
If he's annoying you this much there is only two reasons why 1st because he has a problem himself and wants to turn the attention on someone else being you. 2nd he really likes you and is too afraid to admit it. My advice to you is to just ignore it and try to tell your friends the truth if they don't listen move on because they weren't your true friends anyways. I had a problem like this except my friends believed me and all I did was ignore him and now nobody says anything about it. So stay true to yourself and everything will work out!
