How do I tell if an 8th grade boy likes me?
Hi. I'm in 7th grade, but I like this guy and he's in 8th. He and my bestfriend, who is also in 8th, used to go to a different school together in 5th grade, and they dated. She likes someone else now, btw. But he had asked her out again the first week of school and she said no. Anyways, a few weeks ago my best friend asked him (with my permission) if he liked me. He said maybe. Oh, and we hang out in a big group at school (like during lunch) in a big group of 7th-11th grade people. My bestfriend and the guy I like both hang out in this group. But later him and my best friend talked again and my best friend said that he said he did like me. So my best friend told me that and said that he wanted to talk to me, so I went up to him and he nodded and me and walked away from the people he was talking to and walked with me across the field at school. I honestly cannot forget the way he looked at me when we were walking. I just wanted to melt. But then when we got somewhere by ourselves in the field where nobody would hear what we were saying, he just stood there and didn't say anything. The only thing he did say was "I guess she told you." and I was like, "yeah." So we walked back over to everyone else together and then the bell rang so we had to go back inside.
After school I talked to him again and asked him if it was true about what he said, and he said "maybe" again. Then he had to leave, but he was acting all cute and stuff before he left. <3
The next week we sat on the bus together and he was being really nice to me and all that. And he watched me put on chapstick, lol.
And then last week someone was like, "I think you guys are gonna get married when you're older!" we were laughing together at the time, so the kid that said that (we both know him) made us shut up as soon as he said that. Then he kinda got awkward during the rest of the day...
Sorry that was so long! Anyways, what do you guys think? Should I keep trying to win this guy over? Or what do you think?
