I hope this doesn't sound too stupid, but everytime I try to figure it out my brain goes blank.
Ive got a serious crush on this girl. We've known each other since middle school, she's a year ahead of me. We have been on about three dates, movies mall, etc. I like her alot and she likes me. We are not officially a couple yet. About two months ago she announced her sweet 16 party and she asked her family to invite me as her escort.
Ok, I've been grounded for the last two months, only been able to contact her through friends, and since she's a year ahead, I hardly see her at school. A couple weeks before Valentines day I did some stupid stuff with another girl. After a long debate on whether this was cheating or not, I decided I should tell her before she heard it from someone else, and take my chances. She said she appreciated it but we should take things slow on the boyfriend girlfriend thing. That was okay cause at least she didn't tell me to drop dead, and she didn't withdraw the invitation to her party.
The week before Valentines day I sent her a message asking what she would say if I asked her to be my valentine, she said ask her and find out. I sent her roses and candy at school on valentines day, and she sent me a message saying I ruined her makeup, a friend said it made her cry.
The party is in about three weeks...gifts are discouraged, but I want to give her something personal for her birthday. I don't want to presume things by giving her anything like jewelry...or is this the right time to give her a heart on a chain or something? I guess I'm trying to send a message through a gift... Don't know if that's cool or not. The message would be, I really like you, I'm gonna pursue you.....I don't even know.
