My friends are always teasing me

A boy in my tuition class has a crush on me. My friends are always teasing me with his name and spreading rumours about me and making ‘wedding plans’. They say that I like him and that it’s written on my face. After this, that boy is always staring at me in class. How do I get out of this situation?

Dear Tanya, your friends are having fun by teasing you about the crush a boy in your tuition class has on you. In the teen age, it is common to get infatuated with a person of the opposite sex. He has this problem now, not you. Let your friends say what they want; they will get fed up of teasing you. As you are not infatuated with him and can say that to him. Request him to stop staring at you. If the situation does not improve you can inform your parents who will talk with him.
