True love waits.
There should have been a box for that.
According to redditor lindsrae, her friend's 11-year-old daughter wrote this note to the boy she liked. She only offered him two options to answer the question "Do you like me," but neither "yes" nor "no" fully encompassed the boy's true feelings.
"I don't know. I don't know myself yet," he writes with surprising maturity. "Plus I'm under a lot of stress at home so, I can't tell."
He's either super in touch with his emotions or trying to let her down gently. Or, as lindsrae notes, we could take the boy's response as a little sobering. It makes you wonder what's going on at home to cause him so much stress.
Not to add to his stress, but unfortunately, it isn't all going to make sense when you're 18, sweetie. You're going to have to check "yes" sometimes just to figure out if you really mean it.
