There is one guy who I really like and he likes me too. He asked me to be him girlfriend but I told him that I am not ready yet but we are hanging out and hugging each other really often. The problem is that most of the people in our school (my friends too) don't like him and they are making fun if him. It probably seems really selfish from me but I am afraid that if me and him start dating they gonna make fun of me too. Most of the people in school like me and I will feel really bad if they start to make fun of me because of that but I will feel bad if I am not with him and that will make him feel bad too. I won't ask him to be togheter secretly because he will feel awful like I am ashamed of him. What should I do?
by the way I am 11th/junior/ grade, he is 12th/senior/

Don't worry about what others say. I'm close with a guy all my friends can't stand... I even almost dated him before I found out he was gay. What I did was I told my friends that I'm not gonna stop being his friend and that I really don't want to be put in a position where I'm supposed to choose between him and my other friends. It seems to have worked... I just hang out with him separately than my other friends. My friends still roll their eyes when I mention him but I ignore it. So I'd say you just need to be firm with them like that and make it clear you're not gonna ditch him. If they still make fun of you, they're not real friends! If he's willing to wait until you feel ready he sounds like a sweet guy. Sometimes the sweet guys are the ones who are teased the most, but that shouldn't stop you from being with him0
