There is this boy at school that I like, and he seems to like me too. He laughs really hard at all my jokes, even when they arent funny... He has braces with rubber bands and he always takes them off and throws them at me. What does this mean?? [Confused]

It's hard to say.

It does stand to mention that the way a lot of boys and men are socialized and reared -- as opposed to how they might be without those influences -- results in flirting being aggressive, teasing or bullying in some way.

(Which doesn't make it acceptable, just awfully common.)

So, you might ask him not to throw his slobbery brace-bands at you, just 'cuase.

But someone who laughs at our jokes -- even when they aren't funny -- is generally someone who likes us in some way. Ultimately, finding out HOW that person likes us just takes some hanging out with them and some time.
