I am really confused as I was in school the other day when miss told this boy that I didn't particularly like to give the books out, and I thought nothing of that as someone needed to give out the textbooks. but as he came to where I was sitting and gave me my book, he bent nearer to me and said really quietly 'i love you' then finished handing the textbooks out(but kept looking at me). Since he said that, I noticed that he did try show off often when I was there but I had never really noticed before he had said that he loved me. I really don't know what to do as now I do quite like him but only after he had said that. He had been really annoying before but my friend keeps telling him when he's around that I don't like him because I never told her about this. I havent told anyone what he said yet... But I keep going red when he is around and I am not sure whether I know what to do. This might seem like a strange post as most of the others are more 'serious' but still...
(More serious? For their age and stage, yes. But yours is as serious as you so far know at yours so it's all relative, meaning your dilemma works out equally as bothersome - no worries.)
Really annoying? Do you mean in the same sort of vein as 'pulling your pigtails'? Boys who are approaching sexual/romantic maturity but don't yet know how best to relate to and interactively engage girls, always do that sort of thing (including showing off, yes) to get the girl's continued attention. Clearly that little campaign hadn't worked as well as he'd have liked and so he bit the bullet and told you straight (despite in a very slightly timid, hit and run fashion).
Maybe you always DID like him but were disallowed by your mind to feel it because he had been coming across as 'the enemy' who warranted keeping a safe mental distance from? That he's put all of his prior behaviour into clear and distinctive context now, will be why now you *are* finally feeling it.
Don't worry about what your friend says because words are just a tiny drop in the communications ocean, meaning, your eyes, face and body language - as well as what you do or fail to do - will be doing a lot more talking for you... LOL, not least your furious blushing.
YOU, however, don't need to anything. Wooing is the male's job - it's in the human base programme. All you need to do is SMILE (before you blush
). He evidently already senses you like him so this act would be seen as the Green light to start talking to you like would a normal human being (LOL). From then on, let him initiate the talking topics and if you can't think of anything to say, just issue statements that encourage him to continue, like, 'Cor, really?' and 'Oh yeah?' and 'Me, too', and questions... lots and lots of questions (pretend he's a celeb and you the interviewer for some telly programme).
Most boys *like* shy girls, anyway. The shier, the better. Makes them feel less shy and awkward in comparison, see. And blushing in particular is very attractive to them so - blush away!
Thanks for your help! What you guys said is very true about boys... They are really confusing (and apparently celebrities hahah)
Ya ...just be friends with him and see where it eventually goes. Some guys are like that...always on a speed train.
