Q: I’m the new girl in school and there’s this boy in my class named C. I think he might like me. I’ve been going to this new school for two days already. Every time he talks to someone in my class he looks at me and smiles. I can’t really explain it, but he has been acting really strange every time he’s around me. He’s always happy and talking as if he’s trying to show off something. What should I do?

It’s always hard to switch schools in the middle of the year. Other than the confusion over C, I hope the transition has been pretty smooth for you!

Sounds like might be curious about this cute new girl, just like you’re a little curious about him. I wouldn’t read into it, especially since it has only been a couple of days. My advice would be to take things slowly as you get to know people. Take your time to find out which people have integrity, honor and character. No offense toC, but you really have no way of knowing his motives just yet. Time will tell. In the meantime, pray and ask God to give you wisdom about whom to trust.

A “sample” prayer would be:

Dear Jesus, I trust You. I’m facing a new place, new people, and I really would love Your help as I figure things out here. Please give me wisdom as I make my decisions regarding friends and peer pressure. I know there will be some hard days, but I will trust Your timing, knowing that You are in control. Amen.
