You probably know where this is going by the title. I'm a senior, and I really like an 8th grader. And she's not just any 8th grade girl, she's my best friend's sister. So, let me just explain my feelings for her. It's not just physical attraction, I like her for her personality. I am attracted to her physically too, but she's actually very plain looking. I probably wouldn't be attracted to her at all physically if I weren't attracted to her personality. She's very intelligent and has a great sense of humor, which are the main things that really attract me to her.
And I'll say that I think (or maybe I just like to think) that she is very mature for her age, both mentally/emotionally and physically. And I think of myself of having the physical maturity of a sophmore or junior (many say I even look like a freshmen). So, I look young for my age, and she looks a bit older than the average 8th grader.
So, I want your opinion. She's been driving me crazy for the last few months. I can't stop thinking about her. I'm constantly wondering if she likes me, or thinking about any possible signs that she likes me. I think that I find signs that she likes me, but maybe I'm just imagining things and I'm not thinking logically. So are my feelings for her wrong? I've often thought about waiting until she's out of high school so that the age gap isn't as significant. But, if you think I should wait, how long do you think I should wait?
i don't know how to/if I/ or when I should act on my feelings. I've had crushes in the past, but nothing like this. so, do you think I'm a freak?
