I'm not going to break up with him, but I don't want it to be awkward during the holidays. Help!

Ah, I know how you feel. My family absolutely hates it when I talk to my best friend because he's transgender, meaning he used to be a girl.

I no what u mean with diff religions. I'm really strong catholic and my parents are legit impossible to please when it comes to boys. For me I sometimes matter more about others opinions and I follow them so if there's a guy my fam doesn't like we sometimes break up. But that's just me. Follow ur heart

My stepdad wants me to join his tae kwon do class but I'm not into that stuff. I went one time to make him happy and I still don't like it. But he seems to think I love it. How do I tell him without hurting his feelings?







Hey chica! I'd be completely honest with your stepdad and let him know that taw kwin do just really isn't your thing. Maybe suggest something else that you can do together... like another sport, or a weekly move date or something. That way, he won't feel like you don't want to spend time with him Smile

Hey angelicjade, aw that's a bummer your dad is forcing you to convert. Since you have no choice, take this time to get educated on the religion. Do research and ask your dad questions. I'm sure he'll be glad you're interested in learning. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I don't really have a religion. The rest of my family is Catholic and my dad says I HAVE to get confirmed in the church. I don't even know what is on the first PAGE of the bible. What do i do? Lynae P.

I'm muslim. In my country there are muslims and christians. Islam isn't as the world think it is. It's a very comfortable lifestyle. We do respect christians; in fact, my BFF is christian. And she's serious about her faith just the way I am.
Muslims And christians believe in God, And that's what really matters. We should be ashamed from our religious problems because we should- if we are real muslims and christians- respect each other and never let some silly misunderstandings to rupt our relationships.
I'd like to say to that it wouldn't be fair to think that islam is strict. Islam doesn't allow dating just for dating and to have fun, but it's a relationship based on love and respect, no problem about that.It refers to parents after all, they know what's the best for their kid.

@lemontwist213
Honestly saying all Christians are not serious about religion is untrue and uneducated. Not all Muslims are great Muslims, not all Christians are great Christians. Next time you try to show your perspective, respect (and maybe know more) about Christians. Right now you are representing your religion, and ,honestly, you made it look bad by putting down mine.

Hey chica, aww man. That's so messed up that they don't want you to date him just because he's Mexican. It can be hard to change people's minds about racial stuff like this, but as long as you're still allowed to date him I wouldn't worry. Hope this helps! Smile Smile

lemontwist213...
If you're a real Christian, going to church and doing what the bible says is most certainly NOT optional. I know why you said that though, as there are SO many people who pretend to be Christians, and who think they can be Christians by just going to church once a week, and then totally forgetting about God and living how they want for the rest of the week. It is so sad how many fake Christians there are, and that the world sees us as hypocrites and liars because of them. I totally understand why you would think that, but it's just not true. We are very serious about our faith, and even though we do slip up sometimes, as EVERYONE does, we try our best not to. And when we do, He forgives us and takes us back into His arms. Hope I gave you a new perspective on the Christian faith! P.S. I think it is safe to assume your family has the same perspective on Christians as you do, if so could you please show them this? God bless you, and your family.

I'm Christian and I am very serious about my faith. It's not "Optional." But we do have free will, and we don't have to do it, but neither do muslims. It's bad for us not to.
I respect your faith, can you please respect mine?

@lemontwist213... you're comments about Christianity hurt my feelings. Please research before you make assumptions like that.

I "adopted" a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq. I'm not permitted to type where he/she is or where they are stationed but i worry about him/her because i wonder what could happen. i write him/her letters every week and send care packages monthly. is there anything that you suggest that can help me feel less worried and stressed about my soldier???
-Renae




Hey Renae,

That is amazing! This is a really great thing you're doing for your soldier - getting letters, items from his/her home country, and a reminder that people support him/her from far away means a LOT. You should feel good about that! It's natural to feel scared for our soldiers overseas - they face a lot of danger each and every day. And it's true that they can never predict what will happen. But try to remind yourself that they are trained for this. They work in loyal teams and are led by even more experienced military men who know what they're doing. They're in good hands, working hard for a cause they believe in, and love what they do. You can't do anything to make sure they're always safe, but you CAN keep writing/showing them we care to boost their confidence and their mood! <3

I am Muslim and Muslims can't have boyfriends and girlfriends and we're totally fine with that, because dating is not because you truly love that person anyways, it's just because they are good-looking or pretty, it's not love it's attraction. The only case is when we get married. If you think about it's actually a really beautiful thing, having one person that you love your entire life and not having to through that boyfriend/girlfriend drama in high school.

And it doesn't matter how many values you share, it's not the same whatsoever, because Muslims are really strict and serious about their religion and its nice because you have a limit to everything and you're never lost. Christians, they have values and a religion too, but they're not serious about it, doing what the bible says and going to church is optional.

Hope I gave you a new perspective on Muslim religion!

That's dramatic. They'll find out eventually, just tell them the truth about "Sarah."

Don't fret about it. My grandma is exactly the same way. She slanders every one of us including her own daughter, my mom, and the town we live in and the people who live there. These people will always be negative and complainers, so don't try to change her, it's OK. You guys like eachother. That's all that matters.

2 years ago, my ex friend McKinley and I made a fake Facebook page of a Girl named Sarah. We added these Kid's from our school and soon, they found out. McKinley stopped going on it, and she got her own Facebook page, I can't have Facebook yet. So, I found this boy name Liam from my 1st grade class, and I added him. We have A BUNCH of fake pictures on the Facebook account, so AFTER Liam accepted the friend request, his friends saw and they added "Sarah". Soon, one of Liam's friends named Kellan asked "Sarah" out. My friend Lindsay told me to say yes (She knows about "Sarah") And then to break up with him. But, after he went out with "Sarah" the REAL me started to like him, and I thought "Sarah" was the only way to keep us close. Their whole school pretty much added me, and this one Girl named Vanity got into a fight with "Sarah" and says everything thinks she's a pedophile. But really, she's not. It's really me, but I can't say that! Please help!

Mod, Mod, Mod...
I'm going through puberty, and I'm not good at it. I argue with my parents, judge everyone, I even kinda dislike my friends, although they're great. It's my problem. I'm also starting to have romantic feelings, I have a crush on one guy, although I'll never date until I'm in college, I know my parents won't let me. But I love to read books involving love, and watch similar movies. And the stories I've made up in my head since I was little, now are romantic. And I'm embarrassed about all that. Please help me! Thank you!

MOD MOD MOD Okay, I'm not sure if I'm just weird or what, but ever since I was 4 I have had imaginary friends. I mean, I don't tell anyone really, but I still have them. I have a bf and a bff, and I seem so immature. I have never had a bf though, and I love writing so I act out what I write and it never really ends. My mom told me I was too old for them years ago, and I'm thirteen and I don't know if she's right. They don't affect my social life at all, but I dont know if I'm crazy...

by Dancing Queen 14 on 12/6/2011 10:51:03 PM

 
 

@Mirah98, She said that his parents like her. I highly doubt her boyfriend would introduce her to his parents if they were dating behind their backs. It wouldn;t make sense. Besides, it really just depends on how conservative they are. Just like some christians don't believe in dating, some Muslims do. It's a person-by-person case, because no one person will worship any given religion the same way as another.

One of my reeeaaalyy close friends is moving away. Out of state and everything. This is our first year in high school and I moved out of the city into a small town. So I already barely see her and it depresses me. She wants to have a going away party and I'm definitely going to go since I may never see her again but she doesn't know where to have it. Her house is completely empty and locked and she asked me to help her come up with a place to have the party. I wish I could have the party at my house but I live in a small apartment and we're trying to fit almost everyone in our grade from our old school into a room. Do you have any suggestions? We live in Wisconsin by the way. Thanks so much for the advice! Smile <3

Maybe try a public area like a room you can rent at a restaurant or something. Ask around town, im sure youll find somewhere to have it. xoxo kerra

And 8th graders date 6th graders at my school so I don't see anyhting different. I really don't know what to do because I don't want to leave him he's a really good guy!!!!!!

It's kind of depressing, over the last 3 years- The years where I started middle school and becoming a teenager- me and my 10 year older brother's relationship has crumbled. We can only say mean things to each other, we hate every action the other one does. I mean, even the little stuff gets me. The fact that all of this is true makes me sad. And I don't want him to go to culinary school with our relationship destroyed. Help! How do I strengthen our familial bond so it can be like it was before I had to grow up? Thanks.




Well me and my brother were the same way. Eventually things got better and we're good now. It's gonna take some time due to the fact both of you are teenagers and maturity levels are low. It will definitely get better with time. xoxo kerra

Hey, I REALLY need some advice ASAP! So, my best friend and her boyfriend are seriously, like, in love. They've been dating for about a year and a half. Well, she's my ABSOLUTE BEST FRIEND EVER. I really, really don't like her boyfriend and I want to tell her. We've told each other everything, but I'm just not sure she'd take it so well. She probably wouldn't be mad, she'd just be very, very upset. What should I do? Should I tell her or not?




It depends on why you dont like him. If there's a huge issue with this guy then she should probably know, but if it's just for little reasons then it doesnt matter. She's happy and you dont want to ruin it for no reason. xoxo kerra

@mirah89 & Mikah D.
I was thinking the same thing about muslims not being allowed to date but I guess it depends on the parents. Anyway, I know for a fact that Muslim guys can marry a Christain or Jewish woman but Muslim women cannot marry out of their religion.

by realchk on 12/6/2011 5:05:18 PM

 
 

@mirah89
The muslims believe they, christians, and jews all worship the same God. Some muslims may be against it but until recent times (trouble in the places that are mainly muslim) they have been very accepting of christians and jews. Honestly, the news makes muslims look much much worse.

Ok, so today I had gym, and I was really excited, because we are doing volleyball, and I play , so I was reallly excited because I stink in just about everything else in gym. We learned serving today, and I've been playing for about a year, but I still cna't overhand serve. My gym teacher knows that I play, so she asked me to demonstrate an overhand, and I said that I couldn't, and she looked at me quizically and said, "You can't overhand serve?" and raised her eyebrow and said it kinda sarcarstically. I know that I can't overhand, and I've been working on it for FOREVER and I stil can't seem to get it right, even though I've been playing for a year. I felt really humiliated in gym, because everyone was watching me because they were like, expecting me to be good because I play, but I just made my 1st overhand over today (ever), and the rest of the time, I just made really lame attempts .I feel really humiliated, especially with my teacher's comment. What should I do?

 

I think you're stressing and psyching yourself out.  I'm sure you can do it, clearly, since you pulled it off today.  I play sometimes as a hobby and I used to have just as much trouble with it.  All it takes is practice.  I used to hit it with the wrong part of my hand or my arm wouldn't be stiff enough, and the ball just went into the net.  It's all about the technique, which comes hand in hand with practice.  Is there any way you could pull aside your coach or your gym teacher and have them help you out for a couple minutes?  At the very least they could help you identify what it is you're doing wrong.
