Sometimes it might seem like all your girl friends talk about is boys —which girls like which boys, which boys like which girls, who the cutest boys in the class are. Maybe you think it's boring. Yet, you might start to think: Everyone else is boy crazy. Is something wrong with me? Maybe you've even made up a crush or two just so your friends would stop pestering you. Relax! Different girls get interested in boys or get boy crazy at at different ages. And it may not have to do with puberty. You might be totally developed and still not get what all the boy-craziness is about. A lot of girls talk about boys because they think that's what you're supposed to talk about with girl friends. But there are plenty of other things to discuss. If you're not already involved in an after-school activity or sport, sign up or try out or look into some other hobbies. Hanging out with people who share a similar interest with you —like sports, acting, or music —gives you more to talk about than boys. And try not to worry about being boy crazy. When you do have a crush on someone, you'll know. Maybe you're just selective!
