Relationships with boys are tricky--especially for teen girls who are still figuring out who they are themselves. In her book BOYOLOGY, Sarah O'Leary Burningham offers a crash course in understanding boys. Watch her appearance on TODAY.
A highlight from BOYOLOGY:
How to Ask Him Out Without Actually Asking
You know you like him, and you think he feels the same way. At some point, someone's going to have to make a move. Here are a few ways to suggest that the two of you get together without spelling out the fact that you're dying to go on a date with him.
1. Pick up some movie passes and, the next day at school, pull them out of your bag while he's around. Mention that you're dying to see the latest Jessica Alba flick. Maybe he'd be interested in tagging along?
2. You're going to a party and want to make sure he's going to be there. A simple text saying you'll look for him that night says it all.
3. Bump (yes, literally) into him before lunch and say you're running out to grab a bagel. You'd love some company. (And what guy can turn down food?)
