I've heard that Middle School and High School relationships normally don't last, and I want my first boyfriend to be someone I'm certain to stay with for longer than just a week. I've tried so hard to get over this crush, but it just seems impossible. I've been crushing on this guy since 6th grade, (I'm an 8th grader) and I'm honestly at a loss. Does anyone have any advice on what I should do?

I'd want to know if you have been diagnosed- by a psychologist- with Social Anxiety Disorder. Many more people are anxious in certain one-on-one situations, without really having the disorder. That said, are there any interests that you share? Perhaps he is in the Science Club or plays tennis. You could ask him about a science problem from school or happen to bump into him at the tennis courts. Or, use a group of people to be more comfortable... Maybe take a couple of close friends to meet with him and a couple of his friends and make it a group event.

Honestly that's the only thing you really can do! Or have one of your best friends talk to him for you so you dont have to deal with what he says upfront. I did that my sophomore year about homecoming. The guy rejected me and I got to hear it from my bestfriend instead of him up close.
