my friends are making fun of me because my boyfriend is younger than me and they all think I'm desperate to be going out with him. I've tried to tell them that I really do like him and that I could easily get a boyfriend from my same grade level if I wanted to, but I really like this guy. another problem is that I'm really shy around him, and I hardly ever talk to him and we've been going out for a month. I just barely hugged him the first time the other day and it was pitiful. he's my first boyfriend, and I just don't know how to do the whole girlfriend thing. any advice?

To answer your first question: Don't listen to your friends, age really doesn't matter and he's only one year younger than year it's not that big of a deal. I can definantly relate to you on this part. If you really like this guy then his age shouldn't be an issue.
Second question: Since this is your first realtionship you should take it slow, but not at the rate you've been going. Ask him if he'd like to eat lunch with you and start talking about your interests. Or ask him if he'd want to go watch a movie with you if you don't like talking much. You both should try making an effort in being together both in public and alone. After school ask him how his day went too.2
