Emotional advice forum category advice forum category I am a fifteen-year-old high school student, and my first Homecoming dance is approaching very quickly. I have had this best friend, Tanner, (who is a guy) for a few years, and I am starting to have feelings for him. He told me that there was no way in hell that he was going to homecoming, so I sort of took a hint, even though I really wanted him to ask me. My friend, Ahmed, who is an exchange student from Egypt, got rejected by the girl that he asked so him and I talked about going together. It's not as if him and I would be dating or anything like that. But, Ahmed is almost seventeen, and I definitely feel very pressured by the age gap. Before, he had clinged on to the girl, Hannah, that he asked to homecoming but she pushed him away because it was very uncomfortable. Now he's doing that to me, and I told him that I would go to homecoming with him, too. Tanner has been acting very odd lately, and a few weeks ago he confessed that he has liked me since we first met. I made plans with Ahmed because I thought that there was no way that Tanner and I would be going to the dance together, and, sadly, today he told me that he actually is going to the dance. He tried to keep it a secret from me so that he could surprise ask me, but then Ahmed asked me first. Tanner is now most likely going to ask another girl, named Aubrie, to homecoming. I'm not sure what to do, I feel like I deserve it because I hurt him, but he said he understands that I was right to assume that I could make other plans. If I wasn't going to the dance with Ahmed, then I could go to the dance with the guy I really like. I am so let down that I'm even thinking about faking food poisoning on the twelfth so that I can skip out on going to the dance. I can't tell Ahmed that I don't want to go with him (and that he is too clingy), because Hannah had already told him that exact same thing. I'm becoming very stressed out because of this and I'm not sure what to do. I'm so shocked that I can't even shake a tear out my eye. I don't want to go to the dance with Ahmed, I want to go with Tanner, but it feels immoral to tell Ahmed that I can't go to the dance becaus e I am, as far as love goes as a young teen, in love with my best friend. Please, Please, Please help me. I don't know what to do. I talked to each of my family members and not even they are sure what I should do.

Hmmm for

Now chill , maybe if you dont want to go with him anymore, i get it

Its heartless to tell him he is clingy and all that i understand but at the same time if you go with him and then what id you see tanner? What if you regret? What if you screw things up with ahmed. If he is a understanding person talk to him dont be straight forward like he is clingy or anything talk to him. But at the same time has tanner really asked anyone? If no why not talk himinto asking u or something like that? Why not talk to tanner about it. If you guys were best friend and everything and one truth that he likes u or u like
