My friends insist that I propose to her

I am a 14-year-old boy. I love a girl but I am afraid to propose to her because I think that it will spoil our friendship. But my friends insist that I propose to her. I am confused. What should I do?

Dear Aniket, do not listen to your friends who want you to propose your “love” to that girl. They may just want to see what will happen and make fun of you. You had better follow your feeling that any such proposal may “spoil” your friendship with her. You are only 14 and need not run to make proposals every time you get emotionally upset. In this moment, a good friendship with that girl is more than enough.
