    ADVICE to Alice C

    First, find out if youre for sure changing schools or not. It would not be wise to get tied down with someone you most likely wont even last a year with. If you are going to the same middle school as him then feel free to like him and have a thing with him. Also, if you feel like you cant ask him out, flirting helps. So does telling him you like him. Be careful for hearts can break within seconds but it takes weeks/months to heal.
