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 was so stunned that I didn’t even get to see the woman’s face. I haven’t told him or my mom what I saw, but I managed to keep my interactions with him minimal… I have no idea what to do. Should I tell my younger brother? My mom? Should I confront my dad? Threaten him? I’m so lost. I’m imploding.
