MODMODMODMODMODMODMODMOD! I have known my Bff for all my life, and we've always been Bff's. I just started my freshman year in high school and things have changed. Right when school started, her mom passed away from cancer, and she was sad for a while. Then her older sister took the roll as the "mom" and she has been acting differently ever since. I know being mean is her way of grieving, but its to the point that it makes me not want to hang out with her. In front of my friends she argues with me a lot, and makes me look stupid. It's almost as if she's embarrassed by me, and she only hangs with me because she feels she needs to. But when we are alone, she transforms into her old self, and is just as goofy as I am. It's starting to tear our friendship apart, and I don't know what to do. I just miss the old, goffy, and sweet friend. Please help!

 

Hey girl,

 

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's loss. This is probably the most difficult thing she's ever experienced, and she probably needs your support and understanding now more than ever. It's okay to tell her she's hurting your feelings and to ask why she's behaving that way, but understand what she's going through and don't be too harsh. She probably doesn't even realize she's acting differently! Make sure she knows that you'll be there for her during this rough time, and that you will help her any way you can.

I have a best friend. She and this guy really really like each other. My BFF always talks to me about him, and I wish she would just be quiet about him! I am just SO tired of hearing about him! I don't want to tell her to be quiet about it. Sometimes I think she might be desperate for a boyfriend because even though she and her "BF" are "Dating" she like likes all these other guys and it is so annoying. Sometimes I get jealous because she has a BF and I don't. What should I do?




Hey girl, just distance yourself. If she tries to bring the subject up, ignore it and try to change it to something else. Make it clear that while you're happy for her, you really don't want to hear her go on and on about it.

ModModMod,
I am almost 12, but i have friends that act like 5. They still play with dolls. It's all they want to do? Can you give me some tips to get them to stop? I never want to hang out with them because of. Plus, they are very immature. Thanks!




Hey girl, you could suggest doing another activity. If they still want to play with dolls and won't compromise, it may be time to get involved in a club or activity and find some mature friends to contrast them with. You can't make anyone grow up, but you can find people who are more grown up.

please help me ASAP!
So my friend has an issue of having really happy moments, but then if something doesnt go her way, she gets upset and becomes really quiet. It makes everyone really feel nervous that she might hurt someone. She is that type of person who looks like a brat and needs to get what she wants. it gets on everyones nerves. Here is an example that actually happened today. our 4 person group usually eats lunch before we head to the blacktop. but sometimes she doesnt get lunch, so she rushes everyone down onto the blacktop. I even told her to wait a bit longer so i can eat at least have my lunch. she got quiet and sat on a bench and stared into space. But then she sorta started to nag us again, so i said, "ok lets go before (her name) slaps me," as a joke since she always seems angry. please help ASAP!!!!!!!!!




Hey babe,

I doubt she would actually lash out and hurt someone, especially if she doesn't show any other violent tendencies. She's probably just not good with dealing with situations when things don't go her way. But it's a fact of life! She needs to learn now that she can't always get exactly what she wants. You can try talking to her the next time it happens - just tell her you all have to compromise and that, next time, you'll do things her way. When you're friends with people, you can't always think about yourself: you have to focus on what will make everyone happy. Still, if she makes you and your friends nervous, it wouldn't hurt talking through the issue with an adult you trust <3

i know how you feel. my "friend" was like that before. and it got a lot worse and she did'nt even listen to what i was telling her. so, i told her she can either pick me or her "new" life. she picked her "new" life, and that's FINE with me. gosh i couldn't stand her. haha.

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD Okay... so I'm going out with this guy, Jake.. and I don't really like him anymore because he's super awkward around me and he never talks to me. But my friends are all like, besties with him and they'd be really mad at me if I broke up with him. And I'm planning on breaking up with him tomorrow. A few of my friends talk about me behind my back all the time and it's really just bugging me. They say really mean things and I want to confront them but I don't want to be mean about it... what do I do?

 

 

Hey chica! It sounds like your friends aren't really friends at all. I would definately confront them. Rather than getting angry, let them know how much it hurts you, and that you're really bothered by it. And, if you're not into this guy anymore, then don't let them hold you back. You should never stay with someone just to please other people. It's your life, after all.

MOD!
1. So over the summer, the 2 besties were ignoring me and got mad at me for no reason. Then, I made up with one of them and we were both mad at the other girl. Just recently, I became besties with the other girl again. Now, the other is still talking trash about her around me even though she knows it bugs me and she is always trying to make me go against my bestie. It's really bugging me and I want to tell her to stop, but I don't want to hurt her feelings.
2. The same friend is always saying, "I think this guy likes me." She thinks every guy in the whole school like her! It really bugs me because she is always saying that this guy I used to be in love with likes her and I still have feelings for him and I think she can tell. I know it's bad, but I just want to yell at her sometimes!
3. A lot of my friends are really clingy, and I mean like hanging off of me. IDK why, but it makes me feel super uncomfortable.
This is super long, sorry! Thank you SO much though!




Hey girl, 1) don't take sides in your friends' fight. If they try to trash talk each other, ask them to stop and if they want to do it, to not do it in front of you. You like them both and it hurts when they treat each other horribly and expect you to follow along. 2) I know it's hard, but even though this friend is be insensitive, you don't have to be. Hold your own. Ignore her remarks and she'll stop bringing it up since you aren't reacting to it. 3) Try to insert a little space between you and your friends. If they are still clinging, have a heart-to-heart with them about it.

okay at my school there are a bunch of kids who make fun of different religions and ethnicities. I have friends who belong to those groups, and they are all nice, respectable people. I've told the bullies to stop, but no one has. what should i do?




Hey girl, you need to tell an adult. What they're doing is unacceptable and is just intolerant. Let a teacher step in and get them to stop.
