Read an Excerpt

It is easy to develope a crush on a guy, and sometimes it can Feel like it happened overnight. But no matter how Past it happens, or how often you catch yourself daydreaming about him in social studies, there is nothing wrong with you.

Maybe he First caught your eye when he rushed in to homeroom seconds before the bell rang. Then you realized that his locker was three down From yours, and when you jammed your coat in your locker door one day, he laughed with you-not at you-as he helped you get it unstuck. Now you Find yourself looking For him in the hallways, and you made it your business to Find out that he has third-period lunch.

It can happen just like that. You get caught off guard by a crush, and before you know it, thinking about him has turned into your Full-time hobby. In other words: You're sweating him bad.

But while it's easy to crush on a guy you barely know, it is really hard to see whether this crush might develop into something deeper-that is, until you at least know his middle name. That's why, when you have a crush, you need to collect as much information as possible about that adorable guy you're in like with.

Besides getting the scoop on whether you and he have anything in common, it also makes sense to Figure out whether he's romantically available and in a position to like you back. IF you're crushing on your big sister's boyfriend, For example, you have to realize that a relationship will never work.

Here are a few clues to help you decide if he's right for you:


Do you like him for him? It's easy to Fall For the stereotypical bad boy (or jock, or intellectual), but if you are Falling in love with animage you need to go deeper. What is it you like about him? That he hangs with the mysterious grunge-heads at the back of the school, scrawling graffiti on brick walls? Or have you learned that behind his tough exterior, he's a vegetarian like you and is also interested in Native American history?

If you are simply dazzled by what he represents, then there is no Future. But if you appreciate all that he is, then this relationship has a solid chance.

Do you have similiar interests?


Yes, opposites most definitely attract, but if you and he have no interest in each other's likes and dislikes, it'll be a mighty boring match. This is why it's logical that you'd Fall for your co-chair on the community service committee, your co-worker at Burger Barn, or your bandmate. There's no pressure to be exactly alike, but at least make sure his Star Wars babble doesn't put you to sleep.

Is he a nice guy?


He doesn't have to spend his Free time escorting old ladies across the street, but it would be a good sign if he treats you, his Friends, and his classmates with respect. It's cool if you Find his lunchtime rants on the history class rent-a-sub amusing; it's scary if you overlook his nasty habit of giving the younger boys wedgies during gym class.

Is there a chance you'll get together?


Don't pine away For the Brazilian boy you met on a camping weekend. Letters and e-mails can sustain a Friendship, but if his next planned trip to the States is not until next year, you might want to start dating other boys. Long-distance relationships are really hard to keep going. Likewise, it's always fun to have a crush on a celebrity, but it shouldn't hold you back From Finding a date to the homecoming dance. Realistically, what are the chances of even meeting Freddie Prinze, Jr.-let alone scoring a date with him?

Hottie Alert

That doesn't mean you have to have a crush on a guy. Between volleyball practice, science club, and your volunteer work at the senior citizens' center, you've got plenty going on right now. It's just that it's so easy to Fall in like when you're surrounded by lots of potential crushes. Check out the number of hotties you might encounter on a given school day:

    awsome, but a little bit unhelpful!!

    When I read this novel it partly helped me but not far enough. I thought that it would teach me things I really wanted to know, but it didn't show it. Sure, It helped A LOT, but I felt like It missed a part that I bet every girl/boy might want to know.

    Great Dating Guide!!

    This is a really great book! It was very helpful in answering all of my questions about guys and dating. I loved reading all of the stories and quotes from different guys, and taking the quizzes made the book so much fun. I recommend this to anyone with dilemmas that involve flirting, dating, break-ups, and so much more!

    so much fun!

    This book helped me SO much. I really liked this guy in my class for months, but didn't have the courage to talk to him or even sit near him. But after reading the advice in this book, I got up the courage to go up to him at this party we were both at, and now we've been dating for two months!
