There's this girl I like in my school. We're both in grade 11 and I asked her out a few weeks ago. She rejected me nicely, but I still like her. I also asked her friends to ask her if she likes me without saying I sent them just to clarify and she said no. My teacher constantly encourages me to not give up on her and keep going, but I don't know if I should. I'm leaving school next year which isn't very long, so there's not much to lose if I keep trying. All I do at the moment is just occasionally try to converse with her, but it's pretty challenging because she's an introvert and doesn't talk much. I should note there's a couple of school events coming up which I could probably redeem myself to her such as prom and a theme park excursion. What do you guys reckon? Give up or keep going?
