This guy in my class really likes me and I don’t know if I like him?!? He’s asked me out multiple times and I’ve always said no because I believe that we’re too young. I’m in 7th grade and I’m 13 and so is he but I always told my mom I wouldn’t date till I was 14 but I don’t know whether I like him or not. He’s not the cutest guy ever but he’s really nice and he’s like my best guy friend. My best friend (girl) doesn’t approve of him because they used to be best friends but then they turned into enimys and then he kicked her off his public Instagram account and now there mad at each other. He said he got over me but he asked me to dance at our middle school dance and I said yes but I don’t know what to do because everyone teases he and I because they think we’re flirting when we hit hockey sticks together in gym. This is really the first guy that’s ever had a major crush on me but I don’t know how i feel about him… Can you please help?? I don’t know what to do!?!? GUYS AND GIRLS please answer?!?
I can understand that you're confused. My honest opinion is that you should go out with him, and if you don't feel comfortable enough calling it a date, just go have some ice cream, or watch a fun movie together as friends. It gives you the opportunity to get to know him better and to sort out your feelings for him - just don't stress too much over it and have fun! If you need to talk, you can always feel free to message me :)
A dance can just be for the fun of it, there shouldn't be a problem with going either way. As for whether you like him, that's up to you. If you don't think so, then let him know that. If you do, then go to the dance and enjoy it. If you're unsure then that is fine, make sure you spend some time thinking on it. If you're uncomfortable with the situation, then just say no. Remember, there's nothing wrong with having a friend that's a guy, and it isn't 'dating' if you're only going to a middle school dance as friends (yes, that actually happens) Good luck :3
