One of the questions we get most often from you girls is how to talk to your crush. And you know what? It’s a totally valid question, because no matter how old you are, talking to your crush can be hard. Telling him how you feel about him? That’s obviously even harder. Although we’ve given you advice about this before, the newest Ask Amy video is worth sharing.
Seriously, Amy Poehler takes the words right out of our mouths with this amazing Smart Girls advice. Can she come work at Gurl? Actually, can she come just be a part of my life? I would be cool with it if she just followed me around and made funny jokes and gave me tips on how to do stuff all day long. I wouldn’t mind the company. In all seriousness, I love that Amy takes the time out of what I imagine is a super busy life to connect with her younger audience and talk about these issues. It’s something she doesn’t even need to do, but she does it anyway because she’s awesome.
Enough with my Amy obsession… onto the video. One girl asks Amy: “I really like this guy. We have a lot in common, but I don’t think he knows about my feelings. I’m sort of shy but I want to be with him. What do I do?” I think we’ve all been there at least once.
Amy goes on to explain how to tell a dude you like him and why you should take that leap. Yeah, it can be scary, but as Amy says, it can also be totally worth it.
