Dear Aunt, 

I am a 15-year-old girl who is in grade 10. I have a neighbour, he is really good looking and I really like him. For a year we have been having ‘eye-to-eye communication’, but nothing more. I want to talk to him and see how things play out. The problem is that I don’t have a phone yet, and even if I did, I wouldn’t know how to go about finding his number to call him. I am also too nervous and flustered to talk to him face to face when we do cross paths in the neighbourhood. I really like him and have a huge crush on him, and I don’t want to blow my opportunity, as it would be really awkward because he is my neighbour. What should I do?

Dear Girl next door, 

We are all a little shy and we all need a little push to talk to our crush. Well luckily, we now live in the generation of the internet. Internet is the best way to know someone you like. It is also the best way to say things that you can’t possibly muster enough guts to say in the face. So, the first thing you should do is get online! You don’t need a phone to get on social media sites, at least not Facebook. Send him a friend request right away. If you’ve had an eye-to-eye communication for a whole year, I’m sure he will happily accept your request. Start getting to know him through messenger, ask him questions that give him hints that you’re really into him. Make sure that you listen when he’s opening up because the best way to a guy’s heart is through the ears (eyes, when you’re only communicating through typing). Also, make sure that you let him know how cool you are by swiftly flaunting your best strengths. Build it up and when time is right ask him out. Talking online in a way is like buying time for yourself—you get to warm up towards the other person and vice versa. Having said that, if you’ve been exchanging glances for a while now, he probably already knows how you feel about him. You should definitely start smiling and waving at him. Don’t be so scared. He’ll definitely reciprocate it. It will only be awkward if you act awkward. Approach with confidence and all will be fine.
