I love a boy living in my neighbourhood who is three years older than me. But the problem is that I don’t know much about him. But his elder sister is a good friend of mine. I really want to tell him about my feelings. Should I?

Dear Ritu, for the time being keep your “feelings” to yourself. You are only 13 and know only the elder sister of that boy. You know little about him. Feelings come and go; you have no right to disturb others with your emotional feelings. This could upset and confuse that boy who only knows that you are a friend of his sister. Besides, are you sure that his elder sister, who is your “good friend”, will be happy to know that you are secretly proposing your “love” to her brother? This could put an end to your relationship with her.
