How do I tell my crush I like him
How do I tell my crush I like him?
From Pat / 17 September 2020
Hello you are very welcome to Ask Pat.
Thank you for sharing your feelings about your crush with us. It sounds like you have feelings for this person but you are uncertain how to tell him. Telling someone how you feel can be an anxious and exciting for some people and it sounds like you have given this a lot of thought and you have made a great leap in reaching out to us today.
It can be confusing when you like someone but you are not sure how they feel about you. Do you have any mutual friends that you trust enough to chat to about how much you like him, or to check with them if they know whether he likes you? Have you thought about what might happen if you do not tell this boy how you feel? Or indeed what might happen if you do tell him? Looking at both instances can often help us to make up our minds about what we will do.
