Going to new places with new people is always a challenge. To take your mind off of your worries, try setting a goal each day. Trust me, you'll be surprised by how many friends and new talents you'll meet. Understand that you can stick up for yourself and change how people are treating you. Express you and your talents and ignore people who are picking on you. They're immature and jealous, and if it really gets out of hand, say,"Guys, handle your own situations. It is completely immature to pick on me,especially since you're older." Good Luck.
P.S. You'll do great!

MOD MOD MOD how do i get over embarrasing moments??? HELP!
My personal advice for getting through embarrassing moments has always been to laugh it off. If it doesn't matter to you, nobody else will take it as an opportunity to get on you about it. Laugh, make a joke about it, show humility and you're set! Jordan S.

So we have this dance at my school (the eighth grade dance). SO yesterday, after hours searching, I found this really nice dress and we bought it. I was really happy so I showed my best friend , who is like my sister but then she says that her dress is almost exactly like mine but it's one shade darker and the flowers on the strap (it's cuter than it sounds) aren't as much on mine. She ordered it like last week custom made and it cost her over a $100 while I went to JC Penney's at got it at 30 bucks. I really don't know what to do. I mean I'd get a new one (it would only be fair) if I could, but I rather kind of like it now. I told her that maybe if we accessorize differently and do our hair differently it would be okay. She doesn't seem convinced.. The dance is in 3 weeks. Please help! Sorry for blurting this out like this!
You can always take it back and have her shop with you for a new one. Otherwise, it's really up to you, you can make it look like you two deliberately matched. Jordan S.

My best friend has become more popular this year and is only talking to me for to periods a day..... Not even actually. I've invited her to sleep over my house twice thinking that she would talk to me more but she just stays on her phone on Facebook and still ignores me at school. I have even told her a little bit how I feel but she says sorry I don't really pay attention that much. How do I tell her how I feel?
by nicoles-5 on 3/23/2012 6:12:31 PM
My "friend" has used me before. I took her to lunch along with my real bestie and after we got mcdonalds, she wouldn't talk to us and would start gossiping and swearing about us. Don't fall for it. Now she is a jerk and tries to break my real bestie and I apart because she's jelous of our strong friendship. Stay strong and avoid the users and gold diggers.

one of my friends in my class was nice at first, but the more i got to know her i knew that she was super annoying. then she said something really mean to me and so after that i really didnt hang out with her as much. but i still wanted to be friends with her just not close friends. so ive been hanging out with her but not as much as before.she only had me and some other girl as her friends and a bunch as she claimed at her old school. so weve been hanging out more since, but today me, her, and the other girl were in the bathroom fixing our hair when she said the other girl was her best friend when the other girl doesnt hang out with her as much. what do i do to be her best friend without being really close friends

I am going to a new school in the middle of February right now and I am nervous because even now I have a hard time meeting new people without stuttering or acting dumb. I was wondering if you have any confidence posts or any upfront answers. I am in my last year of middle school (btw). Tanxs

if they're using you don't be there friend. only be friends with the people you can trust.

Hey ohiostatefan141, don't be afraid of who you are. Coming out will let you know who your real friends are. A real friend wouldn't judge you but accept you. Sadly to say but being a homosexual in America can be tough. Not everyone will be accepting of your lifestyle, so develop your tough confident skin now. Hope this helps! Xoxo
Mod mod mod!!
OK, my friends can be judgemental. Not all of them, but my closest friend is. And I know that I'm into girls. I've always known. I'm terrified of coming out. Because there is no one in my school who I could ask. Advice? Lynae P.

Hey Junetikky, you need to get away and stay away from Tiffany. You also need to work on defending yourself. The only reason people tease people is because they know they won't say or do anything. So the next time she yells or insults you, say something back even if you're afraid. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Theres a super mean girl named Tiffany. She makes me cry, hits me, makes fun of me. She pretends to be my friend and then backstabs me. Please help! Lynae P.

Hey amyrose99, I completely understand where you're coming from. It's only natural for you to feel a little jealous, I mean who wouldn't be a little upset their crush is spending more time with another girl? Just know that everything happens for a reason. So no matter what happens between those two or you two, everything will work out. It may not be meant for you to be his girlfriend, or it might. And girl there are sooooo many other guys out there who are just as cute, smart, funny and as cool as this one. Hope this helps! Xoxo
I have a problem. If you can help, thanks! See, I'm jealous. I'm homschooled, but I still have lot's of friends. Some of them are homeschooled, too! I ONLY go to a homeschooled kids art class, and I have a BGF, and 1 of my BFFs is in there w/ me. She's known my BGF for years, and even though we're all friends together, I still get really jealous. They get to hang out more! They must have playdates, they both go to a gymnastics class & gym class together. He has a crush on her AND me. I think I'm in love w/ him. So, the fact that THOSE 2 see each other more kinda kills me inside, you know? How can I deal? I would NEVER hurt their relationship, but... Ugh, can you just tell me how to deal with my jealousy & anger when it comes to those 2? Thanks! Lynae P.

I really want to kiss this guy I'm going out with, but we don't have any classes together. The only time we're together is when we're working at church. I didn't know what to do, so I asked my mom. She told me that i was probably too young because I'm only in 6th grade and church isn't really the place to kiss. I told her that I really want to have my first New Years kiss. She told me that she would be disappointed in me if I did, but she'd be praying for me and that I would make the right decision. I've been praying to God, hoping that he would guide me, but I'm so lost and I don't know what to do, please help me!

Awhile back I was really depressed. I would harm myself and contemplate suicide almost daily, I fought it and I've gotten better. But a guy-friend told me recently two girlfriends were telling him I was overreacting when this was going on, it broke my heart that they were faking "being there for me." I want to confront these girls and tell them that I'm not okay about what they did, But I have no clue what to say!

That's sort of whats happening to me. My neighbor will come over and jump on my trampoline as if she is free to come. I didn't even invite her. And last time my friend came over, she kept on walking in our yard and glaring at me.How do I get her to go away.
by girlslifelover28 on 11/11/2011 2:34:43 PM
Me, too! My neighbor has been sneaking onto my trampoline when I'm not home! My friend said that my neighbor and her went on it when we were gone! I told my mom, but she said it didn't matter. Well, I guess I'll just have a brat on my trampoline all day!

So, my BFF became BFF's with this girl last year. I am nice to her, and consider her one of my good friends. But last week, we were talking about who we like. I just found out she has been dating my crush since the day after that. This has happened a lot though. It's as if anytime I want something, she takes it. I know it could be a coincidence, but this is really irking me. People were pretty sure my crush would ask me out, but she ruined it! Plus, today she came to school wearing the shirt I really wanted at the mall. I want to tell my BFF, but don't want to seem like a tattletale. What should I do? Thanks in advance. Also, this has nothing to do with anything, but which color shirt should I get to accent my eyes? Some days they are hazel, green, and once for a week straight they were blue-no joke! Thanks again!

Oh my goodness, I have been there before, and I totally know how it feels! Could you try finding your friend a new friend? She probably doesn't have anyone else besides you, and if you find her a new friend, maybe she'll get off your back. Do you have any classes together? I know that when that happened to me, we got in a group for a project with a couple other girls and my friend started hanging out with one of the girls in the group when I went back to my old friends. If you don't have a group project coming up, maybe you guys could both become friends with a girl in your class and she'll drift over to her. If this doesn't work, maybe you could try introducing her to your other friend and all get together for a sleepover or something. She might feel left out, and that way you all three could be great friends, instead of drifting to one friend or another. Good luck; let me know how it turns out!
