What should I do about this boy I like?(Read details)

I like this boy. I've actually liked him for a long time. About a year now. He used to like me, but I scared him away cause I didn't know how to act around him. I've matured a lot since then. I'm pretty sure he likes me and I'd really like him to ask me to our school dance, but a girl I just recently became close friends with told me she likes him. She likes a different person every week. So I'm wondering should I peruse this guy and risk my friendship with her. Or should I just suck it up and stay her friend and single. I don't have many close friends and I really want to continue enjoying her company.

Don't let her get in the way. She'll move on to another guy and she should respect your history with the guy. If she doesn't, she's not a good friend. Tell her how you've felt towards him and explain how you don't want your friendship to hurt with her because of how you feel about him. If you are honest with her and up front, she should back down and respect you. You will also have the alpha role in your friendship if she agrees to this.

Give him something to think about, though. Do something like pull him into a room that is just barely private and kiss him quickly. But then leave and don't say anything right after. He won't be able to stop thinking about it. If he doesn't like you that way, he'll avoid eye contact with you. If he does like you, he'll always look at you whenever he has the chance to.

As for the dance, most guys don't like asking a girl to a dance because they're shy, don't know how to dance/don't have confidence in themselves or are awkward on a dance floor, or just want to avoid the whole dance entirely. So you may have to ask him. Use a cute note in class or after school if you have to. You can also tease him with some more action to look forward to.

If she likes a different guy every week, then your best bet might be to wait just a bit, at least until she's moved on to the next guy (depending on how much time you have until the dance).

That doesn't mean that you can't talk to the guy, and be friendly towards him. Do a little groundwork, so that he can get to know you better.
