Help! I have a crush on ...
So you’ve got feels for someone you shouldn’t? Teen wellness expert Kim Smith and Girlfriend’s Stacey Hicks help you figure out what to do next.
MY FRIEND’S BROTHER Recently, I’ve noticed how cute my friend’s brother is. He’s a year older than us and I’ve known him for years, but I’m starting to feel a bit awkward when I go to her house. Like, I can’t act normal around him and it’s stressing other me out. The day my friend even asked a crush on if I had him (I said no, of course) then joked how and gross it would be.

Ngl, I’ve been there! But it’s important to figure out whether it’s just a passing crush or something more. You have to remember that no-one but you knows you feel this way, so there’s no need to be awkward around him. If your feelings do continue to develop, it’s best to be honest with your friend. She might find it hard to hear, but she will appreciate you telling her first. If you are serious about acting on those feelings, you’ll have to let your friend decide whether she can accept the possibility of things going further. You don’t want to lose your friend, so consider her feelings first and don’t act unless she approves.
