4. Give Him Some Space

You have your interests, your needs, your friends and so does he, plus you might even have completely different schedules which, logically, means your free time doesn’t necessarily have to be his free time as well. So, if he’s being fair and letting you have an undisturbed chat with your friends/yoga class/whatever, you should do the same. One of the great ways to be a good girlfriend is to find a perfect balance between sharing and getting to know each other much better and sticking your nose into the most private things he’s still not ready to share. Don’t be pushy, take it slow and let him open up in his own pace. It’s actually a much better and a much more interesting strategy for both of you because it makes things fun and gives you something to talk about every time you’re together so, as I see it, there is really no good reason to push things.

Hey Mara, When you say "enthusiastic", what exactly do you mean? Is he flirting with her? If yes, does he do it all the time? I don't know about the trust part of it but if he's excessively flirting w...
I should trust him. But, it's difficult. Because he kept on talking with the girls he used to court! And his replies are very enthusiastic! What would I do? I felt like he only courted me because the girl doesn't like him. :(
Lol boys will be boys I guess and he's only in the 6th grade!
Lol Mary, It's so hard though, isn't it? :D
Thanks for share great post..I have got to stop nagging!
i found someone but im afraid to ask him out. im alright with getting denied but then our relationship will never be the same
He is still WAY to young, he needs to grow up, why don't you look someone your age or maybe a year older?
Okay so im a 7th grade girl and im dating a 6th grade boy and we really like each other but if our hands accidentally touch he goes "ewww" why does he do that? i wanna hold his hand but i dont wanna ask. i need help.
