Work on it! If you were thinking of telling that guy that his freethrow was great, go ahead. What's the worst that could happen?
Smiles and Cheers :grin:

Okay Guys and Moderator I Need Your Advice:
Okay, so there's this 8th grader named connor (I'm in 7th grade) and he's 14 and soo cute! We flirt a lot and i think he likes me, or atleast thinks i'm cute. Since our 7th grade has 12 and 13 year olds, and the eighth grade has 13/14 year olds, it might b normal 4 a 13 year old 7th grader to go out with a 13 or 14 year old 8th grade but not normal 4 a 12 yr old 7th grader 2 go out with a 14 yr old 8th grader. Once after we were flirting connor asked me my age and birthday. Do you think he asked to see if i would b old enough 2 go out with him?
Well I don't see why it's abnormal to go out with some who is not in your grade?? Afterall, you guys are only ONE grade apart. I think it's perfectly okay, but that's just me. As for him asking about your age and bday, I think that's b/c he wanted to know your age and bday. I don't think there was anything more to it. But then again, I wasn't there so who's to say I'm right. -Hugs, Jiae

I think it should be on the lips because it shows more affection.:grin:
by Hayden on 4/21/2007 10:25:34 PM
Actually that is a good idea cause he knows, so he might make the first move. Thanks i didn't even think of that. But even if i did have to make the first move, should it be lips or cheek?
by Ali on 4/21/2007 9:22:30 PM
Can some1 tell me if I should kiss my bf for the first time on the cheek or the lips?

I am a very (VERY!) outgoing chickie, soo maybe I can shed some light on this sitch. See, I've seen sooo many shy girls come out of their shell. One year I didn't even notice them, the next they are all out there.
I have to say, my craziness isn't always quite... pleasing... to my bffs. In fact they usually tell me to use my "inside voice" because I bug them so much. But, uh, yea, this isn't about me, let's not focus on that for now...
You may be feeling trapped with the people you already know. So you need to meet some new people - then you can change into a bright, lovable, friendly girl. So definitely go an join some clubs! Even if they don't seem so rockin' awesome to you at first glance, the first step of being outgoing and talkative is trying something new, so try something you wouldn't ordinarily go for - wheel throwing, volleyball, newspaper, anything. Meet the girls on that team and start out loud and happy. Everyone loves an optimistic chick!
As for that Spanish cutie, seems to me that he has a thing for you just the way you are. So don't go all extreme on him - no need to be louder than a fire engine! Just, like Jiae said, ask about his weekend or something you know he likes to do. Make short jokes, and be a little more flirty. If you're REALLY feeling brave enough (I haven't gotten to this stage yet...) say "Hey, wanna go after school to that smoothie place and hang out?" Make it sound casual. You can't go wrong with that!

Is anyone on?
by Hayden on 4/21/2007 12:06:15 PM
Also, here's some more advice: When he's around, start talking about something that interests him to one of your friends. Or, ask your friend a question that he knows the answer to and she probably doesn't. Then, he'll probably get into conversation with you and you didn't have to start up the convo yourself! Trust me, I've used this tactic many times. XOXO, *MCH*
Hey babe, I really love the advice your giving and all, but can we please try to keep things short and sweet. The other comment you posted took a toll on my eyesight. Hehe. Thanks chickabee. -Hugs, Jiae
by *MCH* on 4/21/2007 9:24:17 AM

by rosie on 4/20/2007 10:11:35 PM

hope this comment doesn't disappear!

I used to be really shy, until my friends helped me be more outgoing. I even like this boy who i want to just start talking to more.(we are good friends though)
by showstopper on 4/20/2007 4:43:59 PM
Thank you so much for the advice Jana. You've really helped. You moderators always make me feel better!
No problem Gabby-- I come from a gigantic family, its hard to stay on the same page with all your sibs
by Gabby(a.k.a half blonde) on 4/20/2007 3:18:59 PM
Hey Jana I know it wasn't accidental because she told me. I told her it upset me but she thought I was lying just so I could get attention from my parents. We've been mistreated by our brothers so bad and I try to tell my parents how i feel but my parents let her be inconciderate to me because she's the baby. I tried telling my mom how bad I felt but she grabbed my wrists really hard and almost broke them. How can I get though to my parents and my sis that I'm not just trying to get attention?
Hey Gabby-- it sounds like your parents arent being very open towards you and your feelings. I would keep reassuring her that you want to hang with her. You can do this by continually asking her to join you. Eventually she will get the hint
by Gabby(a.k.a half blonde) on 4/20/2007 3:12:08 PM
Moderator I need help. For the past few days people have been so inconsiderate of me. These 2 girls in my Fench class use me just so they can pass the class,my bus got me home late and I told them I couldn't be late so I could get to my vocal lessons. Well I got home late. Today my sister and I were planning to go to the movies this weekend. Well she told her friends that she would go to the movies with them knowing we were supposted to go. She always puts her friends before me! Shouldn't I come before her friends? How can I stop getting stepped on? I'm ready to cry!
Hey Gabby---- two of your problems can be fixed, one cannot. The bus driver isnt on your schedule, it runs the way it runs and cannot fix itself because you have someplace to be....its a total BUMMER. As for french, you are obviously super smart in your class, but dont let these girls mooch off of your brains. It isnt fair that they should benefit off of your hard work. Its hard to say no to people, but in this case you HAVE to, otherwise they are going to keep using you. And for your sister, its not cool that she blew you off, are you sure it wasnt just an accident. If she purposely made plans with her buds over you, then tell her it upsets you. She obviously doesnt know how valuable a sister is, I wish my sister had made an effort to hang out with me.
by Gabby(a.k.a half blonde) on 4/20/2007 2:52:28 PM
I'm an outgoing person. So the way to be outgoing is to join some clubs and make some new friends.
by Gabby(a.k.a half blonde) on 4/20/2007 2:45:10 PM
hey moderator one of the other mods told me my weight question would be put on the main blog. but its been like 3 weeks....?
Hey Meg-- We have ALOT of girltalks. I am sure it will get up there eventually. Hang in there ;)
by megmegxox on 4/20/2007 2:39:19 PM
Pinky--don't be afraid to be the real you! Just talk to people you know to get used to being social, and then you'll be ready to talk to your crush. Trust me... *MCH*
