So there’s this guy I like. I’ve known him for as long as I can remember, but I started to like him recently. I feel fairly confident that he may have feelings for me as well. Keep in mind that we are both 16 and are not trying to drop everything and jump into an intense relationship atm lol 😀
I spend A LOT of time with him and his brother-in-law because we are workout partners and have grown really close and I don’t really have any other close friends. His brother-in-law is going to be moving soon so I will be spending a lot more time working out alone with him. In fact, we are going to go running alone together tomorrow morning.
So I need some advice for keeping things from being too awkward. He is a shy guy (somewhat of a stereotypical homeschooler haha) so it can be a little hard to talk to him sometimes. Do any of you have tips that have helped you out?

people have always described me as “quirky”… so that is a cute way of saying i am weird, so I can’t say how much this will help… but! when it comes to those one-on-one situations, ask questions! Ask him things that aren’t yes or no questions, but open ended, it will force him to talk more. “What kind of music do you like? Why?” color, animal, place, where he is hoping to do after school… things will open up about him, and hopefully he will ask in return and give you a chance to talk! But in some cases guys don’t catch on like that, so just keep asking! He will get more comfortable with you the more you talk and the more interested you seem in him and his interests 🙂 I hope this helps! I am praying for you!

I would just remember that a lot of times the situation is just as awkward for the guys as it is for the girl. If you guys are best friends then just talk to him like you would any other friends. Liking someone doesn’t need to change how you act around them! Hope this helps! Much love!

I’m really introverted, so I’ve always found it difficult to talk to people. But there are some things that can make it easier. I came up with a few tips for becoming a better conversationalist (not to say that you’re bad at it, but with someone who’s really shy sometimes it can be really hard to get them talking). You can find them here: https://damselsdigress.wordpress.com/2015/06/25/5-tips-for-becoming-a-better-conversationalist/

In addition to those, which I hope help, it’s really great that you guys are doing something together like running. Conversation can focus on the activity itself or your surroundings, which aren’t personal and won’t be uncomfortable for him to talk about.

Good luck!
