yourself up about it. There is nothing wrong with it. You say
that you get along with year 11 really well, so why don't you
just start to talk to him like you would to any year eleven. And if
he likes you back he will ask you out. Being popular should not
stop you form going out with some one you truly love. Take a risk.
When I was at high school, I had a crush on a guy who always used
to push me around, and every one felt sorry for me. So one day I
just went up to him and said "Do you like me" and the next day he
asked me out. Every one thought i was crazy, but I felt happy.
Making yourself happy is what counts right? Good luck dearest.

Follow your heart I hope I helped!(: Good luck if you need any help imbox me(: [ a13d's advice column | Ask a13d A Question ]
julie75 answered Wednesday July 20 2011, 5:13 pm: I don't know why anyone would care if you went out with a hot guy, even if he was 2yrs younger. Go up and see if he likes the school or needs help getting around or if he needs some ideas of places to hang out and invite him to one of those places. If he doesn't need any help right now, ask if you can friend him on facebook and let him know you're there if he changes his mind. I hope this helps and good luck.

advicefashionista answered Tuesday July 19 2011, 10:13 pm: I think you should start of just introducing yourself and then gradually start talking to him. The age difference isn't huge, however it does give you an advantage. The fact that you're older than him will more than likely cause him to be more interested. Just give it a shot, ask him where he's from and let him know that if he wants you to show him around you'd be more than happy to. Good luck and I hope I helped!

solidadvice4teens answered Tuesday July 19 2011, 6:59 pm: Talk to him. There is only a year's difference in age. You need to forget this elitist bullshit with cliques and what others perceive. If you want to get to know someone go ahead and do so. If your friends want to deny you that right or say something about it tell them that it isn't their business.
LM answered Tuesday July 19 2011, 5:06 pm: Just talk to him! Honestly if you go through your life caring THAT much what other people think, you could miss out on a great opportunity. Got any mutual friends? Hang out together, something low-key like a group dinner if you're nervous.
Or, be bold and just ask if he wants to hang out with you. Is he the academic type? If he's in a class you took last year, offer to study with him after school while getting coffee or something :)
I don't see why "that sort of stuff can't happen"... what's the big deal? It's only a grade apart and if you already know the 11th grade quite well, what's the difference if you get to know one more? I say go for it!
adviceman49 answered Tuesday July 19 2011, 9:19 am: To be honest I see nothing wrong with going up to a new person in school an introducing yourself and offering to show them around. What if the grade difference was the other way around. Would that make it more socially acceptable.
Social acceptability be damned, it is just plain courtesy to offer to help a new person get comfortable in their new surroundings. In many schools upperclassmen are asked to do this for an underclassmen. You say you know many 11th graders so it will be easy for you to introduce him to people around school. If by chance there is a chemistry between you two, well that's an added benefit.
Being a good citizen and helping a fellow student get comfortable with a new school has its own rewards. As for what others think; that is really their problem not yours. He is probably feeling bad enough having to leaving his friends behind. You will be a lifeboat that might just save him from himself. [ adviceman49's advice column | Ask adviceman49 A Question ]
Senaida answered Tuesday July 19 2011, 9:05 am: Truth is: that sort of stuff really can happen. And you have to let go of your high school popularity, because truth be told, no one really looks at that stuff as much as we think. In the real world, one year from now, no one is going to care if you were popular, or if you were a geek. The only thing that will matter in a year is your happiness.
If your friends are true friends, they wont think too much of it that you are talking to someone a year younger than you, especially if he is a great guy.
You'll never know what kind of a person he is, until you give yourself a chance to find out.
As far as stupid stuff going around your school, what kind of school do you go to that does not allow seniors to talk to juniors?
How do you normally approach people in the same grade as you when you want to get to know them?
Do you have mutual friends you can have introduce you two to each other, I've always found that the easiest way to go. That way, if you are worried about what the school will think, you can at least say you didn't make the move to meet him, you met between mutual friends.
I really think you should suck up all this popularity stuff, and stop worrying so much about what other people think, and get to know this guy, because you may really regret it if you don't. Especially if you are going away to school next year, and wont get to see him. [ Senaida's advice column | Ask Senaida A Question ]
