Please don’t hug him.  He comes to your house because he’s your brother’s friend, and you don’t think he likes you as much as you like him, right?  This doesn’t mean he might not change his mind after you grow up a little, but I don’t think a hug will help.  It’s hard to have a crush on somebody and want to be with that person all the time.  But you are twelve, you don’t know what to talk about with him, you tell me, and if you give yourself a little time just to enjoy him as a friend, these things will come easier, and he might see you a little differently.
