Answer

Hello there! Thanks for your question.
 
It’s totally normal to feel excited and nervous about someone you like. Secondary school or high school can be a rollercoaster of emotions, and it’s great that you’re reaching out. First off, know that you’re not alone in this—many people your age go through similar experiences, and it’s all part of growing up.
 
Understanding and managing your feelings can be a challenge, but it’s okay to take things at your own pace. It’s fantastic that you’re aware of your emotions, and remember that you have a support system around you—friends, family, or even teachers. They’re there to help and guide you through these moments.
 
If you’re hesitant about telling the guy you like, take a moment to reflect on why that might be. Maybe you’re unsure about his feelings, or you fear it might affect your friendship. It’s okay to feel this way, and exploring your emotions with someone you trust can be a big support.
 
Remember, you’re on a unique journey, and it’s okay to direct it in a way that feels right for you. Whether you decide to share your feelings or not, your well-being is the priority.
