.: Girl Trouble :.

.: Shauna Hatch - Aged 12 :.

Harry Potter was well known by many people as “the boy who lived.” He was known by his friends as a great quidditch player and a wicked friend. Harry had managed to catch a small flying golden ball on a broomstick but couldn't manage talking to a girl. Yes, even the famous Harry Potter becomes tongue tied when it comes to girls. Read on and you will know the girl trouble Harry has gone through.

In Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire Harry attended the Quidditch World Cup with his friends Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley, including the Weasley family too. While Harry was there he spotted a girl outside one of the many thousands of wizard tents and since then Harry had been some what in love with the girl called Cho Chang.

Harry finally had his chance to ask Cho out after the announcement of the Tri Wizard Tournament had been announced, including the issue that Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry was hosting the Yule Ball and all four champions had to open the ball with a date. Harry did in the end ask Cho to ball and was rejected when she told him that she was going with Cedric Diggory. Harry had stayed well away from her after and ended up going to the ball with a giggling Parvati Patil and yes, if you hadn't guessed it was one of the worst nights in Harry's life.

After Harry had returned from the graveyard with the body of Cedric Diggory Harry thought that Cho would never want to look at Harry again and would agree with the Daily Prophet saying that he was “crazy” but he was wrong. On the first of September, Harry had seen Cho on the Hogwarts express though he wished that things were rather different. He wished that Cho didn't see him in a carriage sitting with Luna Lovegood and Neville Longbottom whom were all covered in something unspeakable which shot out of Neville’s new plant.

When Hermione had told everyone about the D.A, he was also surprised to see Cho there and ready to sign up along with Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Ginny Weasley and more. Harry's first ever kiss was with Cho in the Room of Requirement on a winter’s night though he wished once again that things were different. He wished that his kiss wasn't so “wet” and that the girl he was kissing wasn't crying her eyes out.

Harry had no choice after that then to go to Hogsmeade on Valentines Day with Cho. He had made plans to meet Hermione in Hogsmeade and hoped that his date would come and go and his luck couldn't have been so bad. Cho took him into a cosy tea shop where she and Cedric had gone to before he had died. Surrounded by kissing couples, Cho began to cry again and started to ask questions about Cedric. Harry tried to change the subject and quickly remembered to meet Hermione. Cho, who had taken this the wrong way, stormed out of the tea shop crying her eyes out. Harry had only realised moments later that he had been used. The only reason Cho had wanted to be with him was so she could talk about Cedric and that was the last time Harry had thought about Cho.

While being blinded by love with Cho, he didn't even notice anyone else. Ginny Weasley, for instance, used to have a great crush on Harry during her first year and even though he was plainly not interested, helped him when he needed it.

Hermione Granger was more like a mother to Harry. She had always helped him with his homework and showed him how to do advance spells. She was always willing to help Harry even sometimes when detention for a week was risked as a punishment.

Luna Lovegood had ended his fears of being mad when she told him that she could also see Threstals. She also supported him in quidditch and helped him when he needed to talk to Sirius. Not only was she there to help Harry in the Department of Mysteries but also comforted him when Sirius Black died.

In the five years at Hogwarts Harry has been in a great amount of girl trouble. Though his heart isn't broken. He is very much in love; he just doesn't know it yet.
