First boyfriend

QUESTION:

your avatar   Cuddlez, 14 year-old girl

This guy likes me and I like him too, but I am scared to go out with him because he will be my first boyfriend. I like him but when I get to talk to him I don't know what to say. I need advice as soon as possible - I dont have much time.

Should I date him?

Dear Cuddlez:

The first time with any new experience is always the hardest but not impossible. If the two of you really like each other, conversation will come naturally as you get to know each other. Start out with talking about things that interest you both and/or things that you may have in common. You may wish to talk about favorite movies, TV shows, school, sports, and the like. Try not to let fear hinder you from beginning a friendship. If you like each other, GO FOR IT but keep your relationship in the right direction. You are both young and do not need to worry about long term commitments yet with all of the adult responsibilities that go along with it. Good Luck!
