Question: I really like this boy and he’s 16 and I’m only 12 and a half. I have known this boy for 5 years and I never really seen him as a boyfriend until now. I asked him if he liked me and he said yes, but he wants to wait until we’re older, but I really don’t want to wait. What do I do?!
What’s the rush?
Wait! It’s best.
You’re 12, a child. Enjoy his company, learn more about yourself and grow up. The fact that he as a 16 year old is telling you that he wants to wait is a blessing and it also means he’s respecting you and himself. You have all your life to “be with” a boy/man. Also, talk to your mom about this, sweetie. She really is the person that you should go to for help and advice on things like this. If not your mom some other adult female you trust.
