Okay, so you know how there's always that annoying friend? That's me. I'm über-outgoing, to the point where people are just like "Okay, stop." And I'm really bossy, too. I really want to stop, and start being a better friend. What should I do?

Hey there, girl! That's great that you know that about yourself and wanna work on being a better friend. Try giving your sistahs more of a chance to chime in when you're hangin' out - if you're making plans, make sure that everyone has said what they wanna do before you weigh in. And if everybody else is down for something that isn't your first choice, just let it happen and try to make the best of it. The best policy any time you're chillin' with your besties is just to start listening, so keep track of how much you're gabbing, and make sure everyone gets an equal turn to chat. Good luck!

So my friend has been saying that i have been pretty mean lately. I had no idea i was being mean! and she keeps saying that she doesn't want to be my friend anymore and stuff but she has been mean to me to lately! When we confronted each other she kept saying it was my fault but I didn't know I was being mean! and I still want to be her friend (even though she is really annoying) mainly cause she is the only friend I really have, friendships have not exactly worked out for me and so when I became her friend I made sure I was as loyal as possible so I could keep this friendship but by doing that I lost all other friendships and I also have no idea who I am anymore, HELP!


I suggest you ask her what you were doing. If you know exactly what to fix maybe  you can save the friendship. xoxo kerra

I feel like I'm kind of bossy toward my friends. I don't mean to be, in fact I try not to, but I am sometimes. I can also be really a know-it-all and I'm super clingy. I just want to be a really awesome friend. Any tips?

Concentrate on being an awesome friend! Because you wrote about what you do that's not so awesome, it means that you know that you're doing it--so stop and think before you say something bossy or "know-it-all" Smile

I have this good friend who I love to bits but sometimes I can't help but feel jelous. She's better than me in everything! I've always been good at art and drama and english and so is she. I feel so down because I feel like I have to compete against my best friend to have my hobbies back Frown I never show it though. Ever. I always smile and cover up, shes doesn't know how I feel. What should I do? I don't want to stay a green eyed monster, especially not towards a friend but I want my hobbies back, besides, she's good at everything anyway! Thank you Smile

Hey, doll, no one should ever keep you from doing what you love, and in this case, it's yourself that's keeping you from it! You can't be the best at everything, but don't assume that your bestie is always better than you. Focus on being the best you that you can be, and don't constantly compare your work to hers. Another trick to try is to do the things you both do differently. If you're both trying out for the play and your BFF is auditioning with a Shakespeare monologue, you should try out with a modern comedy. Or if she's writing a fiction story for an English project, try writing about a cool place you've visited. The point is, experiment and find out what you really love doing, even if you're not the best at it. And when you're feeling jealous, just remember your accomplishments and you'll feel better.

MOD MOD MOD My best friend hits a lot. She also hates a lot. I'm a peacekeeper and a pacifist. So can you give me any tips on talking to her about that? Thanks so much. XOXO.


Hey missy, next time she goes to hit you stop her hand and tell her "Stop". Let her know that you don't like it when she hits you. She might not know that it annoys you, so just tell her. I'm sure she'll stop. Smile

My BFF Ashlynn tried out for the school volleyball team and I wanted to but I couldn't because I play soccer (which is ending in 5 weeks) and my grades aren't that great so my mom said I had to bump them up a bit. Ashlynn made the team, and I'm SUPER proud of her, but I'm also a bit jealous. When I told my sister about this, she said when I did track last year and Ashlynn wanted to but couldn't because HER grades were low, she felt the same way, and that we didn't always have to do things together, but I'm still super jealous! I'd rather be bumping up a volleyball then a bunch of grades! What should I do? Please help!

Hey girl, understand that while academics aren't nearly as fun as volleyball or sports, they're far more important, and your mother is just encouraging you to push yourself harder. So this semester, focus on getting those grades up so you can have the reward of having awesome grades and getting to play a sport this fall. Ashlynn worked really hard on her grades; show her and your mom you can too.

I know what she takes her meds for, my mom told me what they were(shes a nurse) plus I knew before she told me. I've already done all that and nothing worked. I mean I want to be freindsand she really nice when she doesn't act weird. (Wich is rare, but still.) So what do I do now? Please help! School starts Monday! :/

Hey girl,

You have to decide whether her friendship is worth it. It sounds like she stresses you out most of the time, but if you still wanna be friends, you're going to have to communicate and work it out. If you're fine with ending your friendship, let it happen naturally and gradually- don't hurt her feelings. Good luck!

Okay so theres this girl in my school lets say "K" and we used to be friends, then she invited me to her b-day sleepover and thats when it started to get weird along with like 7 other people at an indoor water park hotel thing. First it started with the buddysystem and she just grabbed my arm and yanked me, I was flattered that she picked me until we got to the water park. She wouldn't let me go anywhere with anyone else and at night we stayed up until 3(we had to share a bed)I woke up at 7 and she was leanig over me and said, " I've been watching you all night waiting for you to get up!"At dinner, me and "M" started hanging out pretending we were spongebob and patrick she got so jealous she banged our heads together and "M" has a boney head. For her present I got her a BFF necklace, and when I stopped wearing it she freaked out! What should I do? I think she is stalkerish, she even has to take meds. You should have seen her at my party when she decided not to take them. Sry

Hey Sweetie,

Talk to your friend -- she probably has no idea that some of her behavior offends you. The next time she acts weird, call her out on it in a gentle, constructive way. Instead of just saying, "You're so weird!", a quick and kind "I don't like it when you do that" will go a long way. And if you're sick of her "stalker" behavior? Don't be afraid to distance yourself. Keep in mind, though, that people take meds for lots of reasons -- it might have nothing to do with her behavior, so don't make any assumptions or judge her. Good luck!

bullying really is no joke... a couple of years ago i bullied this one guy and now i am really regreting it because he is soooo smart and he wouldnt help me on a hard question even though i apoligized... lesson here being dont bully because you never know who some one will turn out to be.

I just started school today and my ex best friend (she bullied me for a while, it is not as bad, but still I do not know if I can trust her) is in EVERY SINGLE class that I have!!! Frown Last year, she only had half of them, and now it is worse! I am afraid she might sit around me (in 2 of my classes we can sit wherever we want) and I don't want to have the possibility of her cheating off of me. Any suggestions?

Hey Chica,

Yikes, sorry to hear you have to be around such a toxic girl. You don't havta be mean (bullying her would be sinking to her level!) but make other friends, and give short answers if she tries to talk to you -- she'll get the hint. If she tries to cheat off of you, cover your answers or just say no. It's not worth risking your grade (and possibly, admission at the school), to help her out. Stay strong!
