I am 14 years old and I think I have a crush on my friend's boyfriend. However, he is a flirt, and I'm thinking that may be the only reason I like him, because he acts flirtatious towards me. When he's not acting this way, I don't feel like I have feelings for him. I know he doesn't like me but it makes me sad at times when he keeps changing how he acts. How can I get myself to get over him?

Dear Ninth Grader,
This boy that you speak of is just feeling himself growing up without realizing how obnoxious he can be. When he will be seventeen, eighteen or maybe it will take him to twenty-five, he will be ashamed of what he was at fourteen or fifteen. Girls are far more grown up at fourteen than boys, so don't pay much attention to him. Find new friends and just consider him as a curiosity.
