Ask Angel – My Not So Secret Crush

There is a girl that I’ve started to talk to more often in class. I used to have a crush on her and I’ve stopped but recently I’ve been using any excuse to have any sort of conversation with her. Talking to her is the highlight of my day. I really like getting to know her and I love making her laugh-especially because she’s kind of shy. Yesterday I overheard her say something about me to her friends. I’m not exactly sure what it was, but she laughed and I think it’s bad. What if she thinks I like her again? I mean I don’t even know if she likes to talk to me or if I’m just some annoying dude in her class that she’s forced to tolerate. Advice?

Ask Angel – Double Betrayal

I saw something last week and I am still seething. My boyfriend and I have only been together for a couple of weeks. So, we’ve been spending a lot of time together, and my best friend is usually there too. Lately, she’s been making it pretty obvious that she’s crushing on him. Just little comments about how funny he is or how sweet he is. I’ve usually brushed them off. Except, I had some people over the other night and watched the two of them walk off together. I followed them, and I watched her kiss him on the cheek. He didn’t say anything about us being together or that he can’t, he just smiled. To be honest, I didn’t stay to see what happened next. I just left the room quietly and hung out with other people. It’s been a few days, and I don’t know what to do. I’m so mad at both of them and so hurt. What should I do?

Boyfriend or Predator?

I’m in grade 9 and I am talking to an older guy in grade 12. Everyone says that the age gap is weird and that he is “preying” on me but it really doesn’t feel that way. I think he really cares about me and isn’t using me for my body or anything, my friends still think I should stop talking to him but I don’t really want to…how do I know for sure that he really likes me? 

– So in love?

Ask Angel – Complicated Crushes

Angel answers the question…

“I don’t know what’s wrong with me. There is this guy that was sort of my friend in the last year of middle school. However before Covid, ever since he had started dating some girl, he was really rude to me. I always had a feeling he kind of liked me and I kind of liked him too. I tried to talk to him this summer but he just pushed me away. I don’t think he likes me anymore but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. I feel horrible, and the details make it even worse What should I do?” Continue reading Ask Angel – Complicated Crushes
