Easy fix? Bring a ribbon in ur hand bag- see someone with the same dress? Wrap and tie the ribbon around your waist to make an instant belt- cute and do able! And obviously problem solved!

Sorry if I have too much mods,I just have a lot of problems,and I don't like complaining to people,so I just wanted to let it out on here

by Nicole camo love on 8/4/2012 5:21:10 PM


Hey Nicole camo love, See if your friends would mind hanging out with you at home instead going out all the time. You guys could have sleepovers at each others houses or small get togethers. It's summer so have some backyard barbecues! Hope this helps! Xoxo

Mod mod mod!!! Everybody hates me and I feel left out because my friends,every Friday night,goes to the movies,and they start to make fun of me because my parents won't allow me,they won't allow me to do anything until I get a car,but I'm 12!!! What am I gonna do!!! Lynae P.

Hey Nicole camo love, look on the bright side in the dark no one is going to see the color of your lip gloss anyway. Going with a clear shade will look best in the dark because it will glisten. Hope this helps and have fun at the party! Xoxo

Re re mod mod mod,I did and they said the only thing I'm allowed to wear is CLEAR lip gloss they said it would be "shiny" when at our dances it's very dark,so it's not fair,they then started throwing a big fit saying, "you're in 7th grade!! Noone in 7th grade wears makeup,only sluts and brats!!" when EVERYBODY wears makeup EVERYDAY!! It's not fair! Lynae P.

Re:mod mod mod!!! I just asked the last question and I already asked my parents that before and they said absolutely not, I don't know what to do!!

Hey girl,

You have to respect your parents' wishes! Try waiting a while and then asking them calmly about it then.

Mod mod mod!!!
My parents said I’m not allowed to date or wear makeup until I’m 16!!! And Im in junior high and my school has a dance for EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING!!! What can I do?!?!?!? I’m not allowed to date or wear make up,how am I gonna go to the dance?!?? And all my friends can!! So I have no one to dance with!!! Help!!!!


Hey girl!

Try asking your parents if you can wear just a little bit of makeup. You have to start somewhere. If you're not allowed to wear makeup to the dance, it's OK. You'll still look amazing! Plus, dancing with someone is not the same as dating!

My BFF left her iPod at my house and I looked at it, even her diary! She found out and I apologized and even though she says she forgives me, I know she's still mad. I don't even know why I did it! Please help! What should I do?


Hey girl! Sounds like you need to let her get over it on her own. Of course she's mad- you invaded her privacy. You would be mad if the situation was reversed. As long as she says she forgives you and seems to be TRYING to move on, all you can do is be extra sweet to her and let her move on at her own pace. xoxo

MOD MOD MOD There's something wrong with me. I've been through phases where I was always upset/crying/cutting when I was alone, believing I was depressed because of problems at home/I wouldn't feel good enough. Well, that time has passed...I mean, I often still feel not good enough/pretty enough/funny enough/social enough to deserve company. But now I don't even want company, it's different now. I don't CARE anymore, like I'm not motivated to even talk to people. I've probably lost like 15 friends this summer because I haven't bothered to keep in touch/talk to them, because I don't care anymore. I don't really consciously always want to die or stop living or whatever, but I feel like sometimes I do things that could hurt me, like walk out into the street without looking, stuff like that, and I almost feel..disappointed I didn't get hurt...or worse... Because I don't CARE anymore. What's wrong with me? What do I do? I'm scared to call suicide hotline..

Hey girl!  I'm very sorry that you're feeling this way, and you shouldn't have to feel sad.  Many people struggle with depression and related issues.  I'm strongly encouraging you to call the number posted at to talk to someone and get some help.  Even just having someone to listen to you can help. Your call is completely anonymous and will not go on a phone bill. xxoo

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD! Okay so i'm about 16 now and it just hit me that my generation will be the last to remember 9/11 other than those that remember it will just become a lesson in a textbook. Well anyway, even though i didn't lose anyone in my direct family in 9/11 i feel like i did or that i knew and lost everyone in those towers, the pentagon, and on united 93. i cry so hard just thinking about it and it is making me go insane especially around sept. 11 (obviously). do you have any advice as to how i can manage the tears or the feelings? because last year i ended up hugging and crying with some woman at the memorial who i didn't know and she asked who i had lost and i just said "everyone and no one." PLEASE HELP!



Hey chica! It's completely normal to feel the emotions that you do about 9/11. When I think about it, I can get upset, too. The best thing you can do is talk to someone about how you feel. Don't keep it bottled up inside, because then you'll go crazy. While there's nothing that could really make you feel better about it, at least someone is there to listen to how you feel!

I need your help instantly. About three days ago I went to the public pool with a few of my friends and one of them kind of ejaculated in the pool when I was pretty close to him. I felt some water kind of go up in my 'area' and ever since I've been feeling kind of different... Can you get pregnant at a public pool? I'm only 13 and I've never had sex and I'm so worried );

Hey girl!

You can quit worrying-- the only way to get pregnant is by having sex. A public pool never got anyone pregnant. If you can't stop worrying though, you can always buy a pregnancy test. And I'd stay away from inviting that friend to the pool...

best of luck!

i really need your help!!! how do u get rid of pimples and fast?like overnight!! I have my semi formal at school tomorrow and i have 3 or 4 pimples on my forehead near my eyebrows! Ive tried putting zit cream on it and also warm water but that doesnt help...what should i do?????!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey girl,

You probably won't get results overnight, but pimple cream and salicylic acid really do work wonders over time! You should also talk to your mom about getting pro advice from your doctor or a dermatologist.

I have four warts on my hands and it's really embarrassing! They're really noticeable and ugly! I told my cousin and she was completely grossed out and said, "I'm glad I'm not you right now" it hurt a lot and I'm afraid all my friends will do that too. I starting to be less out going and I'm afraid my warts are hurting more than my hands. Help please, I need advise!
Hiding behind my hands.

Hey girl,

I've had warts on my hands too when I was younger, so I totally understand where you're coming from! Check out this article for a wart-zapping trick you might not have tried yet:


It might be smart to go to your doctor for professional advice, since warts are stubborn! The warts might be on the outside, but don't let it affect you on the inside! Everyone has "blemishes" they aren't proud of - freckles, zits, warts, birthmarks, rashes, whatever. You're not alone! Be yourself and don't draw attention to the warts by changing your whole personality. The best way to deal with this kinda thing is to calm down, be true to yourself, and your true friends will stand by you! <3

Recently, I was sexually assulted by my coach and I've had just the WORST time getting through it. Is there any previous articles on the GL website to help me through it? I've searched and can't find any but any advice will help me. Thanks so much.

Hey babe,

Actually, we've always found situations like that to need more than what we are able to give.  We've always recommended you to go to and call that number.  They can help you much more than we can!

MOD MOD I'm not as close with my bff as before im starting to see shes not a great friend. when she wants something and i wont get it she goes {other friend at the times name} would do it for me! she talks behind all of their backs so im guessing im no exception! she calls this other girl fat but shes not and im bigger than her so i can only imagine how she talks about ME. although sometimes we have a really good time. i cant decide if shes someone to keep or someone to become an old friend Frown.

Hey girl,

If you have fun with her sometimes and think there's a chance to fix the relationship, tell her that the way she treats you hurts your feelings, and that you don't like when she picks on other girls and calls them names. She may not realize she's being mean, so if she says she'll try to be more considerate, give her the benefit of the doubt and see how things go! But if she blows you off and doesn't take the conversation seriously, you might want to find some other girls to spend time with.

there's a guy in 7th grade who I don't see anymore, except texting him. I thought I was over him until we started testing and they got a little more flirty. I don't want to go out with him, because he is my friend and he cheated on his last girlfriend who was my friends sister. I can't stop thinking about him and obsessively check my phone when we're texting. What do I do?

Hey girl,

There's nothing that says you have to go out with him just because you two are talking or flirting.  However, if you know he's probably not a good guy to be interested in, you should keep that in mind and try to direct your attentions onto another guy.

Omg! Just found out one of my BFF's accidentally bought the same dress as me for prom! This is perfect, I am really upset that i wont be unique but I am taking your advice and trying to laugh about the sitch. Hope all goes well when the dance comes around!

Help me. I want to start cutting. I feel so depressed and hurting myself is the only thing that makes me feel good. I might even do suicide. I love hurting myself. Help, this is unhealthy and I need to stop but I can't! Help please!

Hey girl,

You are already one step ahead - you KNOW that this is unhealthy and you know it's wrong to express yourself this way. First, try to figure out what is triggering this pain. Is it body issues? A bad breakup? Someone in your life making you feel bad? School pressures? A mix of a bunch of things? Whatever it is, try to come up with a way you'll replace the behavior of cutting when you feel negative emotions. Instead of cutting, write in a journal, paint, listen to music, go for a jog, call a friend on the phone, etc. Replacing the urge to harm yourself with a more positive, productive activity can really help you realize you are worth SO MUCH MORE than you think you are. You're beautiful babe, and you're super strong. You can do this! And most of all, you NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE. Talk to a trusted adult like a parent, teacher, counselor, clergy person, aunt, uncle, grandparent, friend's parent, etc.

I’m having hair envy (which I never have!). I’m a natural auburn, but lately I’ve been jealous of people whose hair is even redder than mine! Like, for instance, Bella Throne. I love, LOVE, her color hair! Mine isn’t as red (and long.) and I’m so jealous! Is there any way I can bring out more of my color?

Hey babe,

You could always try semi-permanent hair dyes or highlights to enhance the color without a lot of commitment! You could also focus on wearing colors that work well with red hair - deep greens, navy blue, crisp white, and dark berry red would all help make your hair look more vivid red Smile

MOD!!!!!!!!! Ok so i really want to get into a dance team. I am going to try out. I am 13 and most people start when they are about 7-10. It is a serious team. I go 2 Retter's Academy of dance. They compete too. I have no friends there except one but I only see her on Friday. I am afraid I won't get in. Any suggestions? I will be so sad if I don't.

Hey Doll!

It's okay if you don't know many people there because you can always make friends, so don't let that be a set back. My best advice is to just do the best that you can. They can't fault you for trying your best and, if you think about it, doing the best you can do is the only thing you can do. If you don't get it, it's okay, just think of it as it wasn't meant to be and there are other options for you out there. Don't be sad because other opportunities will come your way. Best of luck girl, you got it! Just keep thinking positive and remember to do your best Smile

My sister let me use her account to ask a question. (:
I am 14 & I have really bad lower back pain! I don't have my period yet and there are no medically things wrong with my back ( I just had a physical). Does this mean my period is coming? I have had discharge for THREE YEARS! Please help meeeee (:


Hey Girly!

I’m sorry to hear you are having lower back pain! Lower back pain can be the result of many things including poor posture and the different positions you sleep in at night. It is impossible to tell exactly when you are going to get your period, but be patient as it will happen eventually Smile

If your back pain continues to get worse, schedule an appointment with your doctor. I hope you feel better doll!

Hey Doll!

Those leggings are super cute! I think a number of things would look cute with them. You could always start by paring a longer black shirt or tank top with them like the girl has in the picture. You could also make it edgy by wearing some type of graphic tee or rock/hip hop tee with it. If you took this route, you could pair it with some Doc Martins to complete the edgy look. If you are going for a more feminine look, you could pair it with a white shirt and a blazer of any color (I think black would look best). Hope this helps doll!

i have this friend that lives just down the street from me and she wants to have sleepovers a lot. we are good friends but the truth is our sleepovers always end up being really boring and she can be kinda frustrating sometimes...she just sent me a text asking if i wanted to have a sleepover tonight. What should i say???? we are already going for a walk together today, and we will probably hang out tomorrow because we live so close, but i dont really want to have a sleep over (and i dont really like saturday sleepovers anyway because then you r always tired for school). Should i just be a good friend and say yes? Or what should i say? my mom says i could say no because i have an isat (important school state test thing) on monday and she wants me to be well rested...but i already made an excuse yesterday so i don't what to hurt her feelings... thanks mod Smile

Hey HaNnAh BaNaNa!, I think you should tell her no. This and yesterday are the only two times you told you’ve said no about having a sleepover, compared to all the other times you’ve had sleepovers with her, so she shouldn’t be too mad. Your test at school is much more important than her spending the night at your house, so should explain that to her. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Wow... funny you should post this! The other day at a track meet I was wearing the exact same track pants and jacket as someone else. Except it was a guy. And when we had to take them off to run, I accidentally put his back on. Embarrassing.

okay so I'm planning to get my ears re-pierced (on the low lobe) for the third time. The first time I got it pierced in got infected, and the second time I got it pierced it closed up. I'm not playing any sports right now, so I want to get it done before my summer sport's season starts up. Is there a better chance that it will work this time around, or not a good chance? Also, is there any DIY stuff I can do to prep my ears so I might be successful this time? I'm not nervous about the actual piercing and the pain, I'm just worried that it won't stay this time again. Thanks in advance!! Smile

Hey fallsb-ball, they do say the third time is the charm, so hopefully everything will go smoothly this time. I’ve read that it’s good to avoid caffeine and eat a light meal 2 hours before your piercing. Be sure you get sleep and that your ears are nice and clean. Once you get the piercing be sure you do everything you’re supposed to. Since you’ve already had it done twice you know what to do. Hope this helps! Xoxo

My best friend is amazing and really caring and nice. And when the 8th grade finally had autitions for the 9th grade leadership team for next year she was all excitied. I knew she would make it because her application was perfect and she nailed the interview. But when they posted the people who made it she wasnt on the list. I felt horrible and i knew how bad she wanted this. She wasnt on the bus that afternoon and wouldnt answer my texts. She hasnt been in school for the past week and i cant get a hold of her. I really want to cheerher up but i dont know how, she wont answer and I want to make sure everythings ok.

Hey girl,

It stinks that your friend didn't make the team, but now is a great time to remind her of what else she's awesome at and how much she has ahead of her! Check out other clubs you can join in high school, and why not suggest something you two can join together? You'll have so much fun that she'll forget about being sad about the leadership team.

ok so i used to have acne, i dont anymore, but i still hve these ginormous black marks left over. I hve 3 big ones on my face, and i cant get rid of them!! Whenevr i use cover up, it looks flaky and it doesnt cover much, any tips on how to apply cover up so it doesnt look flaky and covers a lot? And any tips on how to get rid of the marks completly?? I've tried EVERYTHING! HELP!!

Hey girl,

If your concealer is too dark, try using a powder foundation with a concealer brush over the spots. But tons of companies have serums, lotions and face washes for getting rid of dark spots, so head to your local beauty store and talk to the salespeople about finding a product that's right for you!

Why do people get all upset about wearing the same dress? As long as you wear it better, (which is a definite) why should you be worrying?

by AlwaysDreamer on 4/28/2012 9:06:13 AM


K, there's this guy I have a big crush on. Prob is, for a while now I've thought he's had a crush on my new friend. The new friend says he likes me. Should I believe her?

Hey girl,

Ah, if only guys weren't so tricky! The only way to find out for sure would be to ask the guy, but that might freak him out, too, so why not invite him to hang out or start up a conversation and see how he responds? If he seems psyched to hang out, that's a good sign!

MOD  I really need help! My best friend cuts. ALOT. Today me and my other friend had to doctor her during PE cuz she was bleeding we cleaned her arm amd covered it with band aids
I'm worried about her ( I'm in the 6 grade and shes7 grade) and I want to help her before it's to late.
I want her to be happy because that's what friends do. If she doesn't stop I'm afraid she might end up taking her life!

Hey girl,

It sounds like your friend needs to get some professional help, stat! It's great that you want to help, but you need to suggest that she speak to a trusted adult, such as a family member, doctor, guidance counselor, teacher, etc. If she doesn't want to go, you could tell your guidance counselor or parents. Even if she's mad at first, she will thank you for telling them later if her safety is in danger! This link includes hotlines you can refer her to where she can speak with professionals about what she's going through.!2.aspx
