Oops! How to recover from that #awkwardmomentwhen

We’ve all been the girl who’s kept her cool ‘til she lands in a way-awkward situation. It’s time to pull your foot outta your mouth, shake off...

The spacing out advice is so good and with the crush one, lets just say I'll be using it pretty often...

Hey Twiggi828,
Take a deep breath. I can't really tell you if he likes the other girl or not; he could just be friends with her or he could be flirting. But i think you need to try and talk to him. The more you talk to him the more he can see what a truly awesome girl you are. And I do think it would be a fantastic idea to tell him happy late birthday. You could be casual about it and say something like, "Hey, I heard last Thursday was your birthday. Since I didn't get to tell you then, Happy Birthday!" . Even if you don't say happy birthday. The more you get to know each other the more your friendship can develop.
Hope this helps!
Good luck, girlie!

So I REALLY like this guy at karate, and he happens to be my best friend's older brother. The thing is, he never talks to me. We've never even had a conversation. Plus, he goofs around with one of my other best friends. What does that mean? Who does he like? I'm so confused!
Also, today was his birthday, and I didn't say a thing to him. Now I feel really bad. SO I'm going to try and muster up my courage and tell him 'happy late birthday' when I see him next. Is that a good idea? I don't want to seem creepy or anything...
Sorry its long, but I'm kinda freaking out...




Hey girlie,

It's impossible for us to tell exactly who he likes, because we don't know him...and, well, neither do you! Sure, you know of him and you're crushing on him from afar, but since you don't talk to him you aren't as close as you could be. The more you get to know him, the better you'll get at figuring out how he's feeling! Try talking to him the next time you see him - apologize for not saying happy birthday before, then ask him if he had a good day, if there was cake, what he did to celebrate. You get the idea. You won't be creepy if you're making small talk and being friendly! Keep it short and see how he responds. If he seems into the convo, chat with him again next time. Over time, you'll get better and better at it Smile Promise!

I know this is a super awkward question. I'm 13 and a virgin. Every once in a while, the area between my butt and vagina has been really irritated. It's almost a burning sensation and I don't know what to do. What do you think it is?




Hey girlie,

Chances are, it's just irritated from your undies - it can get to feel like a rash, almost like diaper rash in babies. It could also be irritated from wiping too much/too hard down there or if (TMI) you ever have any "#2" leftover on your skin. If it ever itches/burns INSIDE, it's probably a yeast infection. But on the outside, I wouldn't worry about it too much - just remember to keep dry, change your undies regularly, and let your skin breathe by changing into looser shorts after a long day in those skinny jeans. If it still bothers you, you could ask your doctor for a professional opinion! <3

My friend is going into high school and she thinks she's fat. Shes a little overweight but shes tall and she's pretty and beautiful. Her mom said she had to excersise and I thought that was rude but I didnt say anything because her mom gets really mad but my friend took it hard. She thinks everyone looks like a model and everything, but I keep telling her nobody's perfect and she BEAUTIFUL but she still doesn't believe me. I try everything to make her feel better, but nothing working. What can I tell her to make her feel better? Thanks!




Hey girlie,

The goal should be working out to get HEALTHY, not to lose weight. To be in shape, not to be model thin. Tell her you think she's beautiful and she doesn't need to lose weight, but shrug and say it wouldn't hurt anyone to workout and get healthy. Then try joining in on the plan for her to start exercising. If she has a workout buddy telling her you're doing this for your health (not for the number on the scale), she might feel better about the whole thing!

Just a random question but why do people in Europe or austrailia think that Americans are stupid lazy and/or fat. 😢 I think it's a mean stereotype because some of their citizens are like that but not all of them and SOME of our citizens are like that but Some also take pride in being smart athletic and healthy. Just to be clear, my question is why they think that.
Xoxo




Hey girlie,

I agree, it's totally a mean stereotype - but remember these things:

1) It's also a stereotype to assume that all Europeans/Australians think of us this way. Not everyone shares that opinion, so try not to generalize! (And even if they do think that, that doesn't mean they're bad people. They just have different lifestyles.)

2) It's also not false. Of all the countries in the world, the United States has the highest rates of obesity. Two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese, and the number keeps rising. That's a MAJOR public health problem and of course other countries can see that - so that's where the idea of Americans as "fat and lazy" comes from. The truth is, we all really need to start caring more about our health - not because of appearances, but because we owe it to ourselves to respect our bodies and make sure they last for as long as possible. It comes from a lot more serious issues though (like lack of money to buy healthier foods), so fixing it isn't as easy as it seems. I hope this helps to answer your question! <3

ok so my "bff" i really dont like anymore. I think im over being her bff. We just dont click. I have a nother bff and she is great. How do i tell my old bff i really dont want to be her bff anymor. Sorry if its confusing thanks so much anywah Smile




Hey girlie,

Instead of telling your old BFF that you're "breaking up" with her, try casually pulling away and becoming less available. If you used to hang out every weekend, cut back so you aren't available as often. If you texted a lot, take longer to respond and text less. There's no reason to make things dramatic and get into a huge fight - it'll be easier if you keep things civil so you can say hey at school without being awkward. If it seems like you just grew apart, there won't be any hard feelings Smile
