When I was younger, probably in middle school, I was telling my grandpa about this boy that would always be mean to me during recess. He would chase me, throw things at me, tease me; he just would not leave me alone and of course I reacted so it would just continue.
"That means he likes you" My grandpa told me
"Yeah right, that's dumb. Why would he do that?"
"That's what boys do because they don't know what to do with their feelings"
Well guess what? He was totally right.
