Ok. Me and my boyfriend Colton have been doing GREAT!!! I have never really had a steady boyfriend because I wasn't pretty enough. Well now I am pretty enough and I got myself a 4 month boyfriend who I love sooo much. And he loves me. He tells me he does. So why does he sometimes not act like it??? See, most guys are embarassed of their girlfriends... not Colton. He will act all lovey dovey in front of his friends, he doesn't care about that. BUT listen to this and tell me if it's right. One day he said, "I have alot of pretty girls in my gym class." Not knowing what to say I said "I have alot of hot guys in mine" then he asked if we could flirt and I quickly said "Yea, because I do". But now I don't anymore, but I know he still does. How do I tell him without him getting mad? Back to the other stuff. See sometimes he acts like he loves me so much, and other times he just acts like he likes me a lot. HaHa. I don't know how to put it. We're both 15 I'm one month exactly older than him. So I don't know if he's trying to hint to me that he wants to split or what. I know I can get along great w/out him b/c I was single for 3 years before him, but it would take FOREVER. I'm seriously thinking I Love him. I mean not that he's "The One" but I do love him alot. What should I do??

Jerrica- in need of advice quickly!

Hey! Welcome to scarleteen!

A few things--One, in the future, paragraphs are your friend. Embrace the paragraph.

Also, we try to stay away from generalizations. For instance, it is untrue that "most guys are embarassed of their girlfriends..." because everyone really is different. There's no true universal for any group, gender, race, or anything of that nature. Now.

If you want to tell him you're no longer comfortable with him flirting, than do so. Effective communication is paramount in any healthy relationship, be it friend or lover. So, talk to him. I'm curious, though--what's your definition of his actions in "love" versus "like a lot"?
