My kids have friends and they are at an age that people like to tease them about being a couple. I'm trying to help my kids remember that they aren't even allowed to date until college. So just enjoy having a friend and don't let other people teasing ruin your childhood friendships. Also, don't tease people about having romantic interests in their friends. That is never nice and you certainly don't want to have people do that to you, so don't do it! It's never nice and is only funny to mean people.
