Recently I asked him out. He turned me down, saying it would upset his girlfriend. I was so embarrassed as I didn't know he had one. I've asked around and people say he hasn't got one. Did he use it as an excuse and should I ask him about it? Amanda ——————————————————————————————————1/2—— 60 words max. Letters may be amended.

Your hearing through the grapevine that he doesn't have one doesn't mean you should ask him out again. Maybe he was being kind and trying to protect your feelings. There's nothing wrong in asking out boys, but do learn to take no for an answer. ——————————————————————————————————2/2—— 60 words max. Letters may be amended.
