Letting Someone Know You Like Them?Okie dokie. Here's the deal. My little brother is on a basketball team. His coach is 19 and very sweet and cute and all that good stuff. The problem is I don't think he even actually knows I exist. I was talking with one of the parents of one of the boys on the team and she told me to go for it. Then again, so does my best friend who has known him since grade school. I wanted to do something to let him know that I really like him. Any ideas? Don't forget, I am so super shy it isn't funny. My ears turn really bright red whenever I talk to him. So please, nothing too dramatically creative. Thanks Heather
