Hi! I am a teen boy in middle school, and there is this other boy in a few of my classes. He is very pretty and openly gay and I think I might be developing a crush on him. The problem is I have no idea how to approach him. I am new at the school and am still trying to get to know everyone. I just don't know if he would even bother with the awkward new gay kid. I've seen him looking at me a few times and I think he thinks I'm strange. Any advice? (this is also my first time posting on here and sorry if I did it wrong:D)
Try to sit close to him or talk about something he seems to be passionate about!
Just reach out to him! I was in a pretty similar situation when I was in middle school (I'm now in high school), where I saw this really pretty girl, but had no clue on how to talk to her. Usually in this situation, I would probably inch closer to the person slowly at first, and if they return the gestures, maybe such as striking up a conversation, then it could be safe to say that you could get closer. Be yourself! (I swear I'm not taking any of this from a card :D) Most people will fall for those who are honest with others, but more importantly, the honesty with yourself. I hope this helps a little!
