Girl can’t grasp idea of being friends with a boy

DEAR ABBY: I’m a 14-year-old girl who just started high school. I started to notice boys when I was in middle school, and I’d like to start dating soon. The problem is I’ve never had a close friend who was a boy, and the idea isn’t natural to me. How can I ask a boy out if I don’t even grasp the concept of being friends with one?
