Seems as though my Emma (11) has her first boyfriend. She's in 6th grade and he asked her best friend to ask her out for him yesterday. She said yes and he told her he's liked her since she transfered into the school district during 5th grade.
Honestly I think it's cute, and at this point all that dating means is that they walk to classes together, sit together in lunch, and hang-out at the school dance together. They might exchange school photos and phone numbers.
Just wanted to share.
Well a few weeks ago the boy broke up with her. He really never gave her a reason, in fact he told her that she broke up with him which left her feeling a little confused. Dh was a little glad that they "broke up" because he didn't like the idea of her having a boyfriend, but felt bad for her because she was a little upset and confused. We got subs for dinner that night to have a special dinner. Well recentaly the boy asked her to get back together. She told him "NO, you broke up with me" We're really proud of her for not feeling like she needs to have a boyfriend.
