Teasing troubles

I like this guy on my street but he thinks I am annoying and weird. I barely even see him! He makes fun of me sometimes. I really need help!

Why do you think he does this?

Boy Trouble

For some strange reason, when guys like girls they start to act really weird and sometimes make fun of you. It's been going on since I was in middle school and it still happens today.

No one really knows why boys act this way. Maybe they're too shy to tell us how they really feel. In any case, that shouldn't stop you from being bold and daring. Next time he says something rude to you, politely ask him, "I'm sorry, but did I do something to you because I barely even know you?"

He'll probably be so blown away by your confidence that he'll definitely want to get to know you better. So when he apologizes, be nice to him. Laugh it off and introduce yourself, "It's cool. My name is (insert your name here). What are you doing this weekend?" This is an easy and fun way to start a conversation because you're both relaxed and it'll help you get to know each other. And if he's rude to the point of being mean? Just ignore him and he'll get the hint.

Good luck, hon!

Lots of love,
