I've fallen for someone I can't have.
I am in 7th grade and my family is really close family friends with this family and they have a son in 6th grade. we've known each other forever, and our families do stuff together almost once a week, but since just last year I've had a huge crush on him, and he has started to act like he likes me back. but just today i found out he's dating another girl, and i can't tell if it's weird since i'm a girl that i like a younger boy. i need advice, and i need to know whether i should just realize it's a hopeless crush and there's no hope for us, or if i should keep trying.
