This is probably the fifth time kids have come up to my crush and I to ask if we were dating. In the beginning that was all they asked, and we could joke about it, but today they went a little too far. They actually went up to us and told him that I liked him, going further by saying he should make me his girlfriend and marry me and have kids!
It made things so awkward because we both had to say things to each other that could ruin what we are building. I. e. I had to shake my head when asked if I liked him. And he had to say, "no, she's just my best friend."
All this just broke my heart. I had to deny what the kids were saying because I want to be the one to tell him I like him. Or vice versa. Not some nosy children. I texted him afterwards (about something random) to see what damage was done, and it seemed fine. He even called me and asked if he could tag along on a trip I was going on. I'm still worried that this is it because I really do like him.
TL;DR :( I'm just worried that now he thinks he's friend zoned because we both had to say we didn't like each other like that - - due to the kids questions. What do I do to fix this?
