I'm in 8th grade and have a huge crush on this boy. He sits behind me in math and he is very funny, he pulls my hair and jokes around with me too. I have 3 classes with him and he talks to me a lot. I don't really know if he likes me or not. But I told my friends yesterday. We are in a year-round school so we are off this month. So I won't see him valentines day and until March. He talks to other girls too so I am not the only girl that he talks to but as far as I know I'm the one who gets my hair pulled. But I still like him. I think he is funny, so thats not the problem. I really have no idea what to do. Is there any chance that he does like me? I am kinda more of a shy girl so you won't see me going up and talking to him. I usually wait for them to talk to me. I am just confused of what to do. Should I give hints or what? Sorry this was long but please help. Thanks!

I'd recommend you drop hints and flirt more... it may be a little out of your comfort zone but he won't know unless you give him hints. (guys can be REALLY thick. flirting sometimes goes right past them though)
Second of all I'm going to adress your shyness. I used to be so shy, like beyond belief. I had trouble even talking to people I knew, but in 6th grade i told this guy i liked him in a note and since then i've been more open with guys. He didn''t like me back and it kinda sucked. After that incident i promised i wouldn't tell anyone else i liked them but i did and it was one of the best things i've ever done. It may be hard but It's one of the only ways to get through a guys thick head that you really do like them. Rejection sucks but i wouldn't be where i am today in relationships... Be bold. In the long run it's good...

it seems that he REALLY likes you, because he talks to you often so there is already good chemistry. the hair pulling is most likely a way to get your attention, which i think is a cute way, if he isnt ripping it out. if i were you i'd give hints but dont play it on thick, guys like a little challenge but they don't like it if its too hard to get you. and for the kill maybe try to invite him to do something? look nice for him, that should get his attention. i hope EVERYTHING works out for you :) [ nayR's advice column | Ask nayR A Question ]
orphans answered Saturday January 26 2008, 6:03 pm: Yeah, there is a HIGH possibility that he likes you, because he playfully pulls your hair, and since he is talking to you a lot, that is also a plus. And you're not the only one who is shy, join the club. So, when I like a guy, I usually just give him some hints. Yuh know? Like I'll wink at him, or giggle and stuff like that. But in class, make sure you talk to him, and maybe [if you are feeling like this is a good idea] ask for his screen name or cell so you can keep in touch with him over your one month break, then he will know you want to talk to him, and go out of your way to say hi :] which is always a good thing.
You'll be fine, just hint to him that you like him, and maybe you could work up the nerve to go and talk to him, because guys like that, a lot.
Have funn and good luckk :] [ orphans's advice column | Ask orphans A Question ]
