Why do I feel this way
I stutter and don't know what to say
What makes you so special
I've studied your face and your eyes that sparkle
The way you look at me makes me weak
Maybe I've fallen in too deep
What if you don't feel the same way
What if I'm only dreaming
What if I'm only imagining these things
Why do I feel this way
I wish I had answers
I wish you could fix it
I wonder if you feel it too
I love you

My best friend is a boy. He has always been there for me when I needed someone. He treats me differently than others. Everyone says that we’re just like a couple. I feel guilty if he gets mad because of that title people gave us, but he doesn’t care what people want to say because he says I’m his best friend, so he wants me to be by his side. When my friends say to him that I’m his wife, he looks like he’s blushing. I don’t know why, but he makes me confused. Is he falling in love with me? I feel scared that I’ll love him but he won’t.

I liked my best friend for 4 months until he knew that I liked him. He said, "I'm not mad at you, we are still friends." I said ok. That night I cried and wished for time to go slow. The next day he was worried about me. So he gave me a letter that said, "Hey, I only wanted to say that I'm not mad at you. We are still friends. It's just I'm not ready and I can't date." So then I sent him a letter that said, "Yes, we are still friends, but who said anything about dating?" So he just gave me a thumbs up. He thought that we are friends, but no. I have cried for 2 months until I decided to tell him that I don't want to be his friend anymore. So he said, "What, why?" I said "I can't tell you why." "Oh ok....is that it?" "Yes...bye" "Bye." I worried about today because I have school. What am I supposed to do?

You should try to get a hold of him again. I went through the same exact thing. Sure, we're still just friends, but I am patiently waiting until we get to know each other more. After all, your friend said he wasn't ready to date yet. You can wait until he is ready. If you wait, people tend to realize you are there for them, man in them want to be around you more often. Just get a hold of him again and let him know. After all, he was your best friend. He should know how you're doing. I hope this helped you some. Good luck!

I have a crush on this guy. I want to get over him, because he's older and interested in other girls. I don't know how to, I have read about ways to get over your crush online, but it doesn't help. I REALLY WANT TO GET OVER HIM!!! It's crazy how seeing his name makes my heart skip, seeing him makes me freak out! WHYYYYYY :(
He's not even that cute, I don't even remember how I had a crush on him! I think he knows I like him, that's why he always tries to keep a distance. And it is killing me! I WANT TO FORGET YOU!

This has also happened to me. He told me that he knew that I liked him. Everything got so awkward that I couldn't stand it. Everything has made me cry for 2 months. So I decided to end our "friendship." So what I'm saying is that you can end your friendship to forget about him.

Hi I am 13 going on 14 I don't know if you will even read this but your poem touched me and I have liked this one guy since 6th grade and I am in 8th grade now. He flirts with me constantly when he sees me but never texts me or anything I am confused and frustrated. He is now moving down here next year maybe it'll happen..?

Hey, I feel ya. I've had this crush on my best friend since 6th grade. I'm going to be a freshman this coming fall. We have been friends for 5 years (this is going to be our 6th) and he's two years older than me. He sends a lot of mixed emotions. He gets really confusing. You know that saying, "It's called a crush for a reason." Yeah, I don't believe that. You just have to stay strong and believe in yourself. That's what I'm doing, and I'm really close to telling him.

I have this crush. At first I only liked him a bit but now if he's anywhere near me I go red and can't concentrate. Sadly I don't know if he likes me back. I'm too scared to ask him out. Will we one day be in love? Who knows. But if you do ask a crush out and he doesn't like you, I understand ok? There's plenty nicer guys than him. But I'll never forget my crush now.

I am currently in love with this guy Andre. He is my best friend and we spend a lot of time together. However I'm so scared to tell him that I love him. I want to on valentines day though.

I have this crush on a guy I get really nervous around him were really good friends. He makes me feel like no other person alive could make me feel. I want to tell him how I feel I just get really nervous and even if we do go out my best friend has a crush on the same guy she wants me to ask him out for her on February 2. I worry if he says yes I'll get mad and it will wreck our friendship but if he says no I'll be happy and she will feel sad. I don't know what to do should I tell him how I feel or let my feelings be a secret and let my friend date him?

I day dream a lot about my crush . This past summer I met my crush. At first he wasn't my type and we have a big age gap. But when I started to talk to him, I knew that he was really cool and nice. We were together just two days when he went back to his. Although it was just a short span of time, I developed deep feelings. Today we still communicate and he knows that I have a crush on him.
I don't think he will ever like me in any ways other then a friend or sister. I haven't asked him because I am afraid of what the answer will be.

Well this is a really good poem. It reminds me of me and my best friend. We are really close and the thing is that now he is so far away from me and doesn't even know that I love him. He just can't get away from my mind. Oh well I guess it's to late now...:(

Hi, my name is Samantha. I have a crush on this guy. We are really good friends and he knows I have a crush on him. He says he does too but I'm not sure if he does feel that way. He doesn't show it. He likes to be around girls too much. I'm a very jealous type that I don't know how to react to his friendship with other girls. They are way to close. I really like him but I don't know how to show him how I really feel. It seems like he doesn't understand. I've tried it so many ways but I never get to see how much he likes me. We've had our moments but it still doesn't show me what he feels. I feel perfect by his side I'm like the happiest girl on earth. I just hope one day he'll understand and show me what he feels.

I had a crush on this one guy for 2 years. He is like my dude friend, but since the first day of school to now, I never thought less of him. I act normal around him, but every time he asks who my crush is, it KILLS me. I have every period with him in school (except one XD) I don't know. Sometimes we look at each other. I seriously wonder if he likes me two. HE MADE ME A PAPER CRANE. But I'm not sure...

This poem really encouraged me.. but I don't think I can tell him I like him...

Hi my names Trisha. and I have a crush on this boy at my school. now I'm a cheerleader and usually I'm not shy to go after a kid that I'm interested in. but this guys different. his smile makes my legs weak and his eyes have the longest eyelashes in the world. I just cant find a way to say "a dude I like u" I guess its because someone already did. one of my friends thought it would b a great idea to tell him I was crushn on him WHEN HE STILL HAD A GIRLFRIEND! I know right, busted. they broke up 2 months after. now now now don't get all mad they didn't break up because of me, they broke up because she cheated and he was over her. YES! I couldn't believe it! finally! but of course me being the shy girl I am can't find the guts to tell him. Instead all that gets out of mouth is hi!!! omg. embarrassing. Anyways everytime I see him I give him a hug and he wont let me leave unless I give him one like he wants. I need help. an answer to my question. should I talk to him or just let my crush be just a crush?

Hi my name is Jenny. I have that big crush on this guy. We go to the same school, eat at the same table some times. My crush for him is something not everybody will understand. He's cute, nice, funny and he have a nice personality. He makes me smile a lot. but the problem is, I don't know if he really likes me. I've being praying to know how he feel about me, but the truth is I don't know. I know that maybe sounds lame but he's my first honest great full crush. I am friends with all his friends and I'm friends with him. He always play talks and spend time with me but I don't if he think the same thing as me I really need some answer but I don't find nothing yet. He said that I'm jealous of him and another girl when they are talking and playing. I guess I am, but I really want to tell him all those, but it's just to hard for me. I wish there was a easy way for me to tell him how I feel.

Many times people fall in love with people who have no feelings for them which hurts so much because you keep on thinking about someone who has his mind on some one else. It really happened to me and the worst is that a person who has feelings for you is the person you've never thought about. What a world mostly for us teenagers
