Hey. I'm going into 7th grade, my first year in Middle School. I'm really good at adjusting, and I've never been nervous...Until Now. I don't wanna be the only one messing up, or being late for class, or not being able to open a locker, and getting in trouble for it. My brother is going into 9th grade-High School-and He never had these problems, but I'm worried about myself. Please Help!

Hey! This happens to me all the time. A lot of my friends are (i have to say it, a little selfish and only care about their probs) but congrats because it means you are more mature and have a bigger heart. What i did is find a friend that really thinks about deeper things like i do,and we always go to each other for advice.It'll take time to find someone like that, so just keep looking. So you can do that, or just wait it out a year or so when your friends start to mature a little more and really want to help other people.Also, hinting to a friend by saying "you know, you can always come to me for advice" might generate an equal response.

Hey, I'm really good at giving advice as well, and help my friends a lot. The problem is that my friends never help me. I'll tell them my situation and thier response would be "Oh, I don't know" and they'll go back to whatever they're doing. It seems like they don't care because they don't even think about it, when I think about it with them. please help.

@chocopuddin this might show up twice cause my computer spazzed.
Heyy! thanks for giving me a chanve, i think i can help. SOmetimes when I like a guy, its enough just to be in the same room with them, and i get speechless. What i do is a little strange, but i take some time to write a list of topics i can talk to him about, from his sports game the other day to that last math test that totally killed my grade. Stupid conversations really do lead to other more interesting topics. ANd if youre ever too nervous to approach your guy just remember that he likes you. yes, you! Encouraging yourself promotes confidence and bravery.
p.s. guys are actually more afraid to approach girls, than girls are to talk to guys. =)
keep it up cause he seems like a sweetheart!

One thing i learned by being in a bigger school with a lot more people is that you need balance between new and old friends. My best friend and I didn't have any classes together, and we drifted pretty far a part, but she is still someone i can go to for anything. If it seems like your bestie is having more trouble than you trying to make friends, consider just inviting her to hang out with you and some of your new friend because it might make all the difference, it'll make her feel less lonely and less needy. but one thing to remember is to make it very clear that you are still there for her whether you guys make different groups of friends or not. =)

Hey I'm going into 7th grade and last year Middle School got to my best friend's head. She would never answer my texts, I could tell she was lying when I asked her if she wanted to come over or sleepover, and I never got an invite at ALL last year to come over. While, friends she had know for 6 months got to go over many times. She stopped sitting with me on the bus in like october, and would sit with someone she pretends to like. I don't want this year to be like last year with her, and it's next to impossible to talk to her. I've missed her and can't give her up. We've known each other since before preschool. HELP!
dmhlax on 7/29/2010 11:40:38 AM
Hey, I'm actually im highschool, going into grade 10, so I guess this is kinda weird asking for advice from someone in middle school! haha.
But you seem very mature, and you look like you give good advice (: so I hope you can still answer my question!
Well, I really like this guy, and I think I have for almost a year, but we are way to shy around eachother and have nothing to talk about, its quite akward.. we dated a year ago but I broke up with him because we didn't talk enough. Everytime I talk to him I feel stupid and like im annoying him since he doesnt talk to me.. he doesnt really seem too interested in my anymore, like he said he was a month ago.. should I just give up?
well, I hope you can help!

Me and my friend from 5th grade are great buddies but the next year didn't see her a lot and made new friends and she keeps trying to fight with me about making new friends but what if we're not in the same class she might start fighting again.
mbkittys on 7/28/2010 8:34:23 AM
hey. the number one thing is to be honest with yourself, is he the grades biggest player, or is he respectful to girls. If he's truly a good match for you, then go for it. If your daring or good friends with him then i'd ask him if he likes anybody. If he says no, and looks away or looks uncomfortable, then that could be him trying to cover up that he likes you. Or if he says yes and looks you in the eye or smiles than thats a good sign. If it were me i'd just catch him when hes not around his buds and just go for what ever feels right at the time. if your getting a good vibe, then be straight up and say something about how you like your friendship, or the conversations you guys have, or bring up a funny memory then say " ..and I kind of like you."
good luck xoxo-foreverfades

hi! this is a classic middle school situation that almost every girl goes through. I'm going to tell you what you probably already know. and it's that you should tell him. Just one really important tip is to tell him when he's alone. If you tell him around his friends, hes almost sure to say no because he won't be able to express his feelings because most guys get embarrassed around their friends when it comes to that stuff.Before you do though, see how he acts around other girls, does he flirt with them all, or does he save his sweet talk just for you and maybe 1 or 2 other girls.(guys often flirt with other girls surrounding the one he likes, to make it less obvious)
foreverfades on 7/26/2010 6:33:52 PM
heyyy. if your parents are all right with it, then i'd say going to a movie or just getting ice cream is the best way to go because in case it gets awkward, these situations require less talking but guve you something to talk about. but if you need to be more sneaky then I'd say that you should invite two of your friends to stay overnight, and go to the movies or the mall and explain to them that you want to meet up with this guy but you don't want your parents to know. so your two friends can hang together while you have a meet up with this guy, and your parents won't think your lying about who you are seeing.
foreverfades on 7/26/2010 6:24:30 PM
sorry, i answered your question with clues to tell if a guy likes you, but i forgot to put your name in front of the answer. so that one is for you
foreverfades on 7/26/2010 5:35:53 PM
It seems that you two have a good connection. Depending on the specific personality of the guy they will either act more shy around a girl, or try to show off around you when they are trying to cover up their crush. If he's taking particular interest in what you say than that is a good sign, since most guys get distracted easily when they aren't interested in what they are doing.
hope this helps xoxo-foreverfades

alaina978978 on 7/26/2010 3:17:52 PM
I met this guy last year and he is amazingly hot and popular and smart... he is a grade higher but he is only 5 months older than me. I am obsessed with him. I wrote him a note and had a friend give it to him. He said he didnt read it and my friends told him it was me and what I had said. He told them that "maybe he wouldnt answer me so I would keep bothering them about it". but ever since he has flirted with me and some of my friends who actually know him thinks that he likes me and I have been thinking about it and I decided to tell him that I like him to his face but I am not sure if it would actually be worth telling him... I have my hopes and it scares me that he might not like me back that way. I just dont know what to do. He would be my first real boyfriend if we actually went out, so I am clueless.
