Sitting at lunch together, writing notes, holding hands, talking on the phone- ok. Anything else- not so much.

As a kid in the late-50's and 60's I had oodles of little boyfriends all the time. "Crushes" is all they were, and those puppy-love crushes never left the campus. Hell, I can remember a lot of those crushes being hair-pulling and insults, because that was common behavior to get attention. Nowadays it's likely to end up in court!

According to my 5th grader, no one has a boyfriend, but there are many, many crushes between kids. She has a "friend" who is a boy and they text sometimes and there has been some drama, but she assures me that they are not a "couple". It's way too early for that.

When i noticed that this thread was three years old I was worried that there was a pregnancy announcement!
It does happen to 7th graders.
Thankfully, It wasn't an announcement of that type.

You do feel different about that when you are younger like me.
