How to get a girlfriend in 5th grade at age 11
My year-old daughter is maturing very fast. She's told me that she likes guys at school, but I'm not sure if I should let her date. Although your daughter may look years older than her age, her emotional intelligence, reasoning, and judgment have a long way to go to catch up to her body. In essence, she may be a girl with the body of an older teen, but her emotional and intellectual makeup remains that of an year-old. Older boys often pursue girls who mature earlier physically and these girls are often flattered and excited by this attention for example, the freshman girl who is romanced by the senior boy.

How to enjoy nature from home
Get confidence. This will give you the courage to flirt with her and ask her out. Also, most girls are much more attracted to a confident guy than an un-confident one. Try to venture out a little bit more and get more social. If you become more outgoing, and overcome some of your shyness, it will build your confidence and make it easier to flirt with or ask out the girl you like. Wear something nice, and wash everyday. Use cologne or deodorant if you have to.
Nothing is a bigger turn-off to a girl than a smelly guy who doesn't wear half decent clothing. Go near her with your friends and talk about a topic that interests you both.
This is a great way to get the ball rolling as a shy person. Just make sure that you are talking loud enough for her to hear, but not so loud that it's obvious that you want her to hear you. When she looks at you, hold her gaze, smile, and say hi if she's within earshot. Make an effort to do this once or twice each day. Don't do it anymore than this, and usually only do it once a day. Also try half smiling a bit, but be careful to not make it look like a smirk because smirking is offensive and rude, but half smiling can be cute and endearing.
Bump into her slightly or touch her hand lightly as you walk by. Just brush by her hand, and when you bump into her, don't bump her so hard that she falls over. Make small talk. If you're too scared to just go up to her awkwardly and say something, see if you can get in her group for group work or be her partner for partner work, and then use it as an excuse to talk to her.
Ask questions, but make it subtle and don't make her feel like she's being interviewed. If you aren't getting anywhere with the conversation, give up and try again later. Become friends with her. Smile at her lots and talk to her whenever you can, just don't make it seem too obsessive and make sure that it isn't obvious that you like her.
Do little things for her to let her know that you care. Do some activities that she does and be open-minded. Flirt with her a bit. This is assuming that you've done the last step. Anyway, do subtle little things to flirt with her.
Try doing things like teasing her just the slightest bit, compliment her personality and eventually her appearance, and toss a tennis ball to your right hand, and then your left hand and so on this can be kind of cute and show that you are sporty. If you aren't sporty, since you want to be yourself, you might not want to do this, but it's your choice.
When you see her flirting back, increase the amount you flirt, and also make the flirts a tiny bit less subtle. For example, you could try winking at her when she flirts back.
Ask her if she would like to go somewhere with you and your friends. Try to avoid going to the movies with her and your friends, especially a romantic movie, because this might seem a bit suspicious and it will probably make everyone a bit uncomfortable.
A few suggestions of places where you could go are a bowling alley, a fair, and possibly a theatre not a movie theatre, but a play theatre, and if you choose this one, make sure that the play is appropriate and not at all romantic. Make sure you are actually into theatre if you do this one, and be aware that this choice is a little bit iffy.
You could also go get ice cream, go to a fast food restaurant not a fancy restaurant , or go to a sports event. When you think the time is right, ask her out. Ask her in a somewhat subtle way, just don't make it too subtle. Dress extra nice that day not in a tuxedo, but maybe something plaid , and ask her out to the zoo or to a sports event, maybe out for ice cream.
If she rejects you don't cry and get upset, just say, "Alright, let's just continue to be friends then. Include your email address to get a message when this question is answered.
Relax when you see her! What's the use of getting her to be your girlfriend if you are tense around her all the time? Helpful 6 Not Helpful 2. Make the time you spend with her count.
Get to know her when you are with her, don't just stand around awkwardly, talk to her! Have fun with her! Helpful 4 Not Helpful 2. Show her that you care about her. This doesn't necessarily mean tell her you love her and all that, it just means that you should go out of your way to help her and comfort her. Helpful 5 Not Helpful 1. Be yourself.
If she doesn't like who you really are, then what's the point of being with her? Helpful 4 Not Helpful 1. Submit a Tip All tip submissions are carefully reviewed before being published. Make sure she's nice.
She might be cute and smart and maybe funny, but if she's mean there's no point being with her. Helpful Not Helpful Don't talk about yourself too much. This will make you seem quite self-centered, and you will look like a bragger. Don't run and hide when you see her and don't look too nervous when you talk to her or if she comes and talks to you.
Don't ask her questions just for the sake of asking questions! Make sure that you don't know the answer to the question you're asking! Don't turn your baseball cap to the side if you have one. This isn't really cool, and looks worse than turning your cap to the back or not turning it at all.
There are a rare kind of girls that like you or who you are, not how you smell or how you look or how you talk. BTW, most of these kinds of girls have braces or glasses or get made fun of because other girls are jealous.
Dating At School: When Is Your Child Old Enough To Have A Girlfriend Or Boyfriend?
While I have memories of my now year-old self being years old, I have learned that the year-old kids of today are not the sort that I or any generation preceding mine were. I can say this with a considerable amount of confidence and insight given that I am raising a year-old daughter who is in fifth grade. The discussion about the puberty culprit is one for another day, not the one being had here, right now.
When I was four, I had a boyfriend. He lived a few doors away and we played doctors and nurses. He was of course just a friend , who happened to be a boy. I suppose some adult once made what they thought was an amusing comment about him being my boyfriend. I was sad to lose him as a friend when his family moved away but for the next few years, boys were another species who were noisy and smelly; a common reaction from most children.

Love is a powerful emotion that can bring you to the top of the mountain and cause you to hurdle down it. Know that your feelings are natural and that girls feel it too. If you want to get an 11 year old girl to like you, start by asking her friends what she likes and what her hobbies are.
