Okay so I'm 15 and I am in tenth grade. I've known this girl since I was in 8th grade and she is 2 years younger than I am. That makes her in 8th Grade Now. I have some hints that she may be somewhat interested in me but I am not totally sure. I only see her sometimes around first period since she has a high school math class and has to go to the high school for it. Her parents do not let her on AIM or the computer much for that matter so i don't talk to her much but when I do, we have conversations though they don't last that long. On the convo where I started to really try to talk to her again, she is like:"Are you an only child?""No""Aw, you must be lonley! You should join my family!"And goes on somewhat like that. Now my problem is that I like her a lot and want to ask her out though I don't know how and even when to do it. I'm afraid to ask her out, probably because of rejection. Even now, when she is online which is maybe once or twice a week for like five minutes each, I hesitate to IM her so I don't seem like a 'stalker'. I don't want to bother her to the point where she just gets plain out annoyed by me. Help!
Afraid to Ask
I don't think you should feel afraid to talk to her when she's on IM. That tiny fragment of conversation is not really enough to base anything on, but I wonder if perhaps she's not mature enough yet for a full relationship. There's a fair difference between 10th grade and 8th grade, but it will get less as you get older. Perhaps you should keep it on the friendship level for now, at least until she is in high school too.
