Crushes can be so hard because it's an exciting, yet daring thing to have one. The whole keeping-it-a-secret thing and the whole getting-your-friend-to-find-out-if-they-like-you-back thing. It takes up so much time and energy, yet at the moment, there's nothing you'd rather do. You dadydream about them, night-dream about them, you name it, it's about them. So if things don't work, you're instantly crushed because even if part of you knew that they would never like you back, another part liked to imagine and hope that secretly, they did. That little tiny bit of hope is what got you wishing and now that there's no hope, life seems lost. But a tiny bit of advice: I've been through a lot of crushes, thought I would never love anyone else, but I always managed to get another one by the end of the week!

They teach us about relationships and allow us to get ready to have a relationship. Life is about learning and in many cases we have to take baby steps before we take the larger ones. Crushes are just that. Baby steps.

If I am are 12 years old and I fancy this boy who is 17 years old Do you think its ok Is he too old for me. Please help me?

Many of us at your age had 'crushes' on someone older and there is nothing more frustrating, but it is part of life. I am sorry to say you are too young for this young man, but enjoy that 'crush' you feel for awhile and eventually you will move on. I had many crushes on older boys and even one of my cousin's husbands (who was about 30 at the time) and I was only your age. Love hurts and there is no getting around it, but as you grow older love can be a wonderful thing and you'll have your chance to enjoy it. The law also forbids any young man of 17 from dating a young person such as yourself. Like myself when I was young just admire him from afar and talk to your girlfriends about it if you like or simply keep your feelings to yourself. As time goes on you will be interested in someone else.
