When we are teenagers, we often depend on passing messages through our friends or notes to talk to a member of the opposite sex. Unfortunately, anytime you use a middle man, there is a chance your message will be garbled or mistranslated. Talk to the girl yourself. If you need to, confer with her friends first to find out what she likes, what interests her, and when might be a good time to talk...and then do the talking yourself. Begin with friendly conversation. By being confident, being yourself and being interested in her, you will earn the honest affection of the girl that you currently like from afar.
