There is a guy at my church named Alex. I started liking him in early August after my mom pointed out we looked cute together. We are raising money for camp and I was baby sitting a kid. My crush came upstairs and talked to another boy, which I'm friends with. We bonded and he seemed pretty interested in our convo, but then the following Wednesday, he kept giving me a look and walked away. He did it multiple times and kept walking around where I was.
I keep seeing him follow me everywhere, yet he barely talks to me. I really like him, meaning I get weak in my knees and butterflies in my stomach. I know this is cliche' but, My heart skips a beat when I think about him or see him.
My mom says for him to make the first move, but I'm dying to talk to him, we've made small talk like Hi or something, but never a convo like at the banquet! So should I talk to him or should I let fate take it's course? Help!!

Well why dont you just sit down with your mom and calmly explain that you didnt appreciate her going into your diary without your permission. try not to start a fight because that will not solve anything, so stay calm and she will understand. maybe if you dont want to do that, you can put your diary in a locked drawr and hide the key somewhere only you can find it. hope this helps you! good luck

I just started writing fictitious romance stories and I would be horrified if my mom read some of my secret writings. I hope she respects my privacy. I kind of think your writings, diaries and other things are sort of private just like my conversations with friends and what I look at online but I can see why some parents want to know.

@Allison31 I know how you feel. All of my friends do that to, to make matters worse, they all have rich moms who let them get there legs waxed and were boat loads of makeup. So ya me and my twin sis Bella stick out like sore thumbs.

I feel like my parents need to respect my privacy sometimes. Is it wrong to have a notebook to write in about your feelings?

My mom has gone through my facebook page and has gone through my emails, but when I asked her why she did this, she got upset and said, "Because it is my buisnesss to know!" and then yelled at me for being secretive. I sent one email saying who i like and she says she cant trust me anymore because I like someone...
I don't know what to do!!! Help!!!

You should get glasses. I promise everyone will get used to them within at least a few weeks. Get frames that fit your face well. Look up what glasses go with your face shape. My friend had the same problem, and it makes her look smarter too. You also have the option of contacts, if you have the money and your parents will let you.
Hope that helped!

MOD MOD MOD!
AHHHH! Help I really think I need glasses for far sight because I can see better in my brothers, and I cant see the board in class! I really don't want glasses because I DON'T LOOK good in them! Help! I know that it's best if I get them, but it would be so embarrassing! Especially, in front of my crush! HELP! Lauren C.

well if i were you i would step up to the plate and ask your mom politely and say"mom this is my dairy where i can express my feelings" and hopefully she would understand how you feel
by love me44 on 5/14/2011 3:39:57 PM
Omg I would kill my mom
by danceintherain on 5/12/2011 9:51:13 PM
I used to keep a diary, but then I found out my mom was reading it. Needless to say, I was more than a little mad. I don't keep one anymore because of that.
by thecupcakequeen on 5/11/2011 10:19:18 PM
i dont have a diary. i have a phone. my diary is textingmy friends about my day like stuff that ou would put in a diary. and that way my parents cant read my "diary" ;)
by krazykotabug on 5/11/2011 10:08:40 PM
I keep one and I hope my mom hasnt read it, I dont really hide it but I dont keep it in the open. What I would hate worse is if she read and looked through my phone or my online stuff, that would upset me more. I know people who have had their texts read and their online accounts looked at by their parents and I think that is wrong.
by luckykel on 5/11/2011 10:06:26 PM
oh i know sometimes i feel my mom does that do. My mom also goes through ALL of my text messages. it is so annoying . i mean i have given her no reason to not trust me. she is always trying to get into what i am doing and doesn't stop going through my room and all my stuff. i absolutely. i am sure there is not a single place in my room she has not checked.
by star53 on 5/11/2011 10:04:03 PM
I don't have one. Haha...I thin they are weird! Sorry about the whole situation!
