Should you fib for your friend? The 411

Telling a fib to help your bud wiggle out of a sticky sitch is totally a no-brainer, right? Wrong!

okay, so i have some things to ask:
1) my best friend since second grade always goes off with this girl that i don't like. she stole my bff from me three times but my bff always seems to come back to me what do i do?
2) I have a lot of friends that are guys there's Tyler, Noah, Ben, Connor, Niels, Matthew... But, i don't know how to like hang out with them during lunch. I always seems like unpopular. but, then i don't want to be popular but my guys friends hang out with some of my friends that are girls. how could i hang out with them?
3) i think my neighbor is dating a bad girl. she's two faced, as my mom would say. she wears nice clothes and make-up and short-shorts and spaghetti strap and has dated a lot of boys. what do i do?
thanks so much,
katie Tong




Hey Katie,

1. Remember, your BFF is allowed to have other friends besides you! It actually keeps your friendship healthier, if she has other interests, other friends, and other ways to spend her time. It's great to be attached at the hip, but sometimes you need a break Smile Try to remind yourself of this - and remember YOU can hang out with other people, too! As long as she isn't treating you badly, all is ok <3

2. Try stopping by their table to hang out for a few minutes. You don't have to hang with them for the whole time, but it would be fun to enjoy a post-lunch snack with them to catch up, or even just chill at their table for the last 5 minutes before your next class. Smile It's a good idea - it'll keep your friendships strong!

3. It's nice you're looking out for your neighbor, but sometimes people have to make their own choices...and their own mistakes. Plus, you only know her reputation/appearance - but you don't know how she actually is one-on-one. Just as you wouldn't want anyone assuming things about you, she probably wouldn't want someone assuming things about her either. I mean, you might be right - she might be "bad." But if it's two-faced bad and not dangerous behavior bad, it's best to let your neighbor decide this and choose to break up with her, not for you to get involved <3

i singed up for the penpal thing it has been seven weeks and i still have not gotten your email!!! my mom paid for it and does not want to have to pay $20 again. is there any way they could resend the penpal info to my email?
thanks

 

I unfortunately don't have anyway of dealing with the penpal stuff. This is a matter you will probably need to call in and ask about.

okay so iv like been really insecure about myself lately and the other day i was reading that when you feel that way its a good idea to write down a list of 10 good things about youself and then look at it whenever you feel down. I sat down to try to do that and couldn't even come up with one thing! That was like two weeks ago and i keep trying to come up with something posotive and I can't. What should i do?




Hey girl,

You gotta think about every aspect of your life. Even something like, "I have one true friend and I can tell her anything" or "I love Taylor Swift and know the lyrics to all her songs" counts!!!! Instead of making a list of your fave qualities/strengths, try writing a list of things you're grateful for. Your parents (even though they can be dramatic sometimes), your friends, decent grades, the freedom to go to school, having a cozy bedroom to sleep in, a special vacation you went on, the fact that you have a computer to write this question to us... you get the idea. You live a blessed life, even if you sometimes forget that. We all do sometimes! But it doesn't hurt to remind yourself about it. Another thing that could help motivate you is to write a list of stuff you've always WANTED to do, like a list of goals. Write things you want to learn, things you want to achieve, places you want to go, things you want to see, etc. Plus, check out the following articles for some more ideas <3 Lots of love, babe. You are AWESOME!!

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD I know this is off topic but please help right now i'm in a really sticky situation.So my best friend's step dad is divorcing her mom and they have to move out of their house now because he's makeing them sell it. Also she just brokeup with her bf and now her friend is dating this guy she really likes. I knew she was really depressed about the whole thing but this morning my friend told me she started cutting herself and she showed me the cuts on her arm.I'm really worried about her. So I suggested that she talk to her mom or a counsilor about this but she said she couldn't and made me promise not to tell anyone. Now I have no idea what to do and I really don't want her to hurt herself so i could really use some advise on how to help her as soon as possible.
Thank you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much for the advice and sorry this was so long<3<3<3<3

 

Talk to her. Sit her down and listen to what shes going through. Let her know youre there to help her - to listen and hold her hand - and that cutting herself isnt going to make anything better. If she keeps being stubborn - you need to take a stance. Let her know that if she doesnt stop you will get her help. You will tell an adult to help her stop because you cant stand to see her hurt herself. Be there to listen at first, but if she doesnt stop you have to use tough love to help her. Good luck! xoxo kerra

There is this guy and he has a crush on me. And he always tells his friends. He's in the 6th grade and im in the 7th. I think he's really cute but I don't know what t say around him. When he's around me he gets really nervous and can only say like hi and tell me I'm a good singer. He laughs at everything I say. I like him to but I can't date. So do you the we should hang outside of school? If so where? And my BGF hates it when I talk bout other guys but should I tell him thins. Cause this is a really big thing for me. And I need his support

 

He girl, it sounds like the two of you might be better off as good friends if you can't date. Hang out with him outside of school in a group setting--go see a movie or do something active with some other girls and guys. Only tell him things that you're comfortable telling him, but don't leave your BGF out. Make sure you include her and make time to hang with her, too.

Ok so im trying out for cheer at stellar allstar cheer academy and I've seen them cheer on YouTube and they re REALLY good but i cant do those flips cuz im scrared so what should i do on my first practice???

 

Hey girl! If you still have time before try-outs, I would suggest getting in touch with one of the coaches and asking for some advice. You might not need to know how to do the flips just yet, but if you do, I'm sure one of the coaches would be willing to help you. Doing flips takes practice--they won't expect you to know how to do them without any guidance!

MOD MOD MOD I know this is unrelated to this topic, but I was just wondering how on Earth your models have such perfect skin and hair and everything! I can't get perfect skin, Im breaking out like crazy on my forehead and sometimes my hair just wont agree with me! I really hate my face with acne and blackheads and all. How can I get such great skin like these models? Thanks! Luv, Claud

 

 

Hey girly! The fact is, these models have professionals touching them up constantly... fixing their hair, their makeup, and everything in between. I can't speak for GL models, but lots of other magazines and advertisements use computer software to airbrush the models, making them look perfect. So, while I'm sure they have flaws, you just can't see them. As for your own skin, my personal favorite face wash is Burt's Bees. Their acne ones are great! Especially the willow bark scrub. That's cleared my skin up a lot. And, instead of concealor, I've been using Garnier's BB Cream. Basically, it's like a tinted moisturizer that does wonders for your skin. You can find both products at your local CVS, Walgreens, Target, etc.

Today at bball I told one of my bff's that she wasn't good at layups....but she was still better than me. And then she told her mom, and now they're both mad at me...even though I apologized 5 million times. WHat should I do?




Hey girlie,

Give her some time to cool off, then apologize one more time. You might need to swallow your pride and tell her why you said something like this - maybe because you were feeling insecure about your own layups and stop thinking for a second. Whatever it is, giving her some time to be less mad is definitely smart. Then say you're sorry, do your best to make her believe it...and hope she forgives you. She doesn't HAVE to, but this shouldn't be something that breaks your friendship. As long as you aren't too stubborn to apologize and admit you were wrong, I'm sure she'll come around <3

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD! My mom took me shopping today Smile I was at Hollister trying on clothes, I tried on a pair of shorts and they in my eyes are not short at all (http://www.hollisterco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10201&storeId=10251&langId=-1&categoryId=16441&parentCategoryId=16405&topCategoryId=12552&productId=903140&seq=01) and she said they might be too short. We went to Aeropostle “They might be too short” AGAIN! I have some from Abercrombie and Fitch that I know are short and she hasent really said anything or told me not to wear them. Shes like these are cute and they are SUPER lame, I don’t know how to get it across her mind that I like wearing shorter shorts, not to be sluty but I just find them really comfortable! Please help! XOXO




Hey girlie,

I can see how those shorts from Hollister could, in mom's eye, be a little too short. (Let's be honest, they're short-shorts babe!) You're her baby even though you're totally old enough to make decisions for yourself... she's constantly looking out for you, making sure you give off the right impression, and especially that you don't show off too much skin. Try compromising with her! Tell her you won't wear these shorts to inappropriate places, like school, church, your grandparents' house, etc. Tell her you'll save them for spring/summer weekends, the beach, the pool, the movies, around the house, and other places where it's ok to wear shorter shorts. By being mature and willing to compromise, you'll show her you're responsible - and that might make her more willing to work with ya on this one <3

Hey selgomez1997, yeah just ask a salesperson for the shoes in your size. I think Journeys is the only store that sells them girl. Hope this helps! Xoxo

MOD! MOD! So my friend with other friends invited me for bowling. Which I'm cool with except There five of us and two couples. IM THE ONLY ONE SINGLE. Im very insecure but now Im more insecure. What should I do?

 

Hey *GingerForev*, I know how that can be and if you're not comfortable going don't go. If your friends are the type who are lovey dovey and always all over each other, then you might not have fun since you won't have anyone to cuddle with. But if your friends are chill and don't do that stuff, then don't let the fact that you don't have a boyfriend stop you from having fun. Just think about it girl. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Hey girl, its your party so I think you just need to make sure YOU are having a good time. It's your day, make the best of it! Just concentrate on what you want to do and who you want to hang out with there. That's the best way to have a good time. Don't worry about other people and if they cause drama. Just let them deal with it. You'll have a super time!

HeyySmile! Ok so me and my friend both like the same guy (Hes a junior and we are freshman) and she told me he kissed her, I told her that we wont let a guy come between our friendship but I still cant help it but I want to punch her! So bad! I have a reason to feel that way right? Anyway he basically broke up with his gf for her and how ironic is it that her bf breaks up with her too the same day! Anyway all I've been doing is loosing my mind! I cant stop singing "That Should Be Me", and that song makes me even more hurt.

Hey girl,

If you're upset that she kissed him, it might have been a good idea to say something when she brought it up. Rather than harboring anger at your friend, you can tell her that you were a little hurt by the news, but that you do want what's best for her. Try focusing your attention on other, available guys instead of worrying about your friend!

MOD,
in school last week we were marking each other's tests (not big exams but not little mini-tests) and because I was marking for a kinda-close friend I was not being as fussy about giving marks as I should've done e.g. ignoring minor mistakes.. but halfway through marking she checked on how she was doing which wasn't very well and got REALLY angry. I explained how I was trying to get her the best score but she kept saying how I was going to get her in trouble when her parents check it. then everyone in the desks around me (including my best friend) turned round and joined in, saying things like "this is where friendship comes in" "don't be such a nerd, the teacher's never gonna check it". the truth was that a lot of the answers were way out, and impossible to say they were right. but iin the end i crumbled and did what they told me to do- marked about 80% right when her real mark was about 50%.
how can I not give in if this happens again- I don't wanna lose my friends!!!

Hey girl,

It sounds like you did the right thing -- it's not your fault if your pal needs a little extra help in school! If you're going to trade papers in the future, you could talk with your teacher in private and say that you're not comfortable grading your friends' work, and ask if you can move seats or grade someone you don't know. You could also offer to study with your friends outside of class so that she'll do better next time!
