I'm in High School and I've liked this one boy for about two years. The thing is, is that whenever we're around each other, alone, we don't really speak as much as we used to. My feelings have remained unchanged towards him. I still like him a lot. I'm starting to think that maybe he doesn't like me in that way, even though all of my other friends say that he always talks about me.
He's a Zen Buddhist, and I don't know if there are any guidelines to relationships and dating and stuff like that. I think I know that Buddhists are supposed to stop any behavior of the aforementioned sort but I would appreciate the help.
Thank You In Advance,
Dear Ms. Lonelyheart,
Young and so many problems. I don't really know much about the Buddhist religion but I think that he may be starting to think and he realizes that you must be coming on a little strong. I would suggest that you and this young man be just friends -- forget about "that other stuff". Girls mature a little sooner that boys and he is starting to feel a little in awe of you -- that means a little in fear of you. Just be friends -- and watch your distance. Find some other young boys and have high school fun. You are too young to get wrapped in just one boy.
