Why you should totally go for the geek this school year

I have a crush on an ugly and nerdy guy. I don’t want to tell anyone, because I’m really popular and it will ruin my reputation...

MOD MOD MOD Ok so there is this guy that I known since second grade and now im in fifth grade. Were just friends is how I see it but he always wants to talk to me and hang out with me everyday I am at school. I think he wants to be more than friends. How do I tell him were just friends without hurting his feelings because he is getting annoying and I don't want to be mean? He gets babied by his mom a little so he might feel sad or angry.

 

Hey vampy098, show him through your words and body language. Refer to him as "friend" and "buddy", and say things like "I'm glad we're friends" or "You are really cool to just hang with". Never get touchy feely in your body language, so if you do give him a hug make it quick and maybe pat him on the back. Hopefully he  will get the hints. Hope this helps! Xoxo

ok so i have 2 typical problems. 1. i like this guy (no dip). i think he likes this other girl whos a MAJOR flirt with him. she doesnt like stalk him, but she tries to be cool and nice and awesome around him. ik, i sound mean and snotty for this, but this makes me hate her more than i already did.(she stole my friend-long story.) and idk what to do. he's never gonna like me because i usually get really awko and nervous around him (which usually doesnt happen-im really cool and normal around most of my crushes.) and im not skinny at all. and i think being skinny matters to him, cuz hes kinda popular and sporty and all that stuff, but idk. hes at least nice to me...anyway. next question! 2. my first school dance is on friday, and im SO nervous!! the teacher talked to the class about slow dancing and stuff but im in 7th grade and the guys dont seem intrested yet (or so they say.) and im jsut nervous!! like what do i do? i need help!!!!!! and like tips and stuff!! thanks ♥

 

Hey lilmissamazing,you can either sit back and watch her take your man or go after him. I know talking to your crush can be scary but you have to do it. You don't want to always wonder what would have happened if you did do you? So just force yourself and start off small. You can begin by just asking him how he got into sports and who is his favorite team is. And for slow dancing, try to pick up on what everyone else is doing. If you really get lost the boy you're dancing with will help you. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Personally, I always go for the geeks in my class. Sometimes I tell my friends and they react with "what?!, how could you like him?". Should I try going for not so geeky guys?

Hey girl,

What matters is how you feel about them, not what your friends think! You should go for whomever you like, whether they are geeks or not Smile

I have a crush on this guy who is a few years older than me and he smiles at me when he sees me but just in a friendly way I guess. I know he is off limits but I can't stop thinking about him. I don't know what to do!

so I really like this guy. Everyone thinks were going out. My friend says he likes me. I really want to ask him out,but I dont know how. This would be my first boyfriend,and I am afraid of rejection.Please help!!!!

Hey girl,

If you ask someone out, there's always a chance of rejection, but there's also a chance he'll say yes! There's no rush to make a move, so you could try to get to know him as friends by hanging out casually and then gauge if he likes you from there! Try studying together or hanging out in a group, and if you two get along really well, you could ask him out then!

Okay so... I have shoulder length hair, I'm tall, skinny, and I like to dress and look cute(obsessed with fashion). I also like to play videogames (Games like Bioshock, Halo, and more. I'm a huge gaming nerd lol) So my question is.... Will boys find me attractive? I've never had a BF before so I don't know if my gaming obsession is a turn off. I'm a bit nervous because a bunch of new people moved to my neighborhood (there's also some old families) that have boys my age. I'm not nervous talking to them, but more with flirting, and stuff like that. My family is having a HUGE holiday party in a few months, and I'm pretty sure boys are going to come. So should I ask what VideoGames they play? Or should I stay silent? I'm curious because I think I'm FINALLY allowed to date, and I don't want to mess up lol Laughing
Thx!

Hey girl,

Boys aren't attracted to one type of girl, so there are plenty of guys out there who love girls who are into gaming. Some girls and guys are into that, and some aren't -- everyone's different, which makes the world great! You should never feel like you have to hide who you are, because the right guy will like you for everything about you, whether or not he shares the same interests. So if you want to ask guys what games they like, go for it--but don't instantly rule them out if they're not into gaming, because you might still get along really well. If you be yourself the right guy will like everything about you Smile

Ok so I really really Really REALLY like this one guy me and my friends call him KoYo and i asked him out today and he was about to say yes!!!! But then he say my friend standing there and this one guy he was talking to earlier walked past and they were both staring at him so he said no but really quietly and i never get alone time with him! I really need ideas on secretive ways i can ask him out please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Hey girly, good for you for having the guts to ask him out! Next time, just ask him when it's just the two of you. If he's alone, he won't get emberassed by all the attention. Or, you could always slip him a note or send a text. Good luck!

Hey girly, you were right to turn down your friend if ya arn't into him. This article might be able to help http://www.girlslife.com/post/2012/03/20/How-to-turn-down-your-BGF-without-wrecking-your-friendship.aspx

 

And as far as your crush, since your friends talked to him, he prob already knows that you like him, so I wouldent push it too much.

I'm starting school on Tuesday.... And I have 2 friends :/ everyone thinks I'm crazy !! I hate it how everyone is trying to be something. I used to have a lot of friends but they all went to new schools Frown

 

Hey eemmais1, first start by getting your two friends to introduce you to their friends. Start chatting up the kids in your classes, smile at people in hallways and stay friendly. The way to make a friend is to be one remember that. Impressions are really effective, so make sure you look great the first day. Wear a really cute outfit, have your hair and makeup done and walk into school confidently. You've got until now until Monday to pick something stylish out, so get to work girl. Hope this helps! Xoxo

okay so i was hanging out with my cusion and her hot boyfriend yesterday (i'v meet him before) Hes really nice and sweet! and i tolled my cusion a wile ago that i thought he was cute! well i think my cusion tolled him that i thought he was cute. And yesterday we all went swiming and i sometimes could feel him looking at me. Hes never touched me but some times i think he is winking at me. AND HES 18!!! the most imberessing part is i had something in my eye and thought i was trying to wink at him!he offers me food and says my name all the time and asks me how schools doing and stuff..what do i do and how do i go about this??? and is this in my head or is something going on?

 

Hey JBug77, it could be going on. You can always tell when someone is checking you out. If you begin noticing more of this, it's good to cut out any flirting since he's your cousin's boyfriend. Hope this helps! Xoxo

high school started last week and so far my only friends are sophomores and junioirs and i know a lot of freshmen but none of them are in my "group." so how do i make more freshman friends ps im really shy.

 

Hey kewauneegal, start saying hi to those freshman whenever you see them and introduce them to your upperclassmen friends. Ask if they'd like to hang out with you and your friends. See if they'd like to eat lunch, walk to class or chill out on the weekends together. Freshman often get lost or have trouble trying to figure out where things are and how they work, so offer your assistance. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I've been crushing on a certain guy for about a year now. He's really nice, we have the same sense of humor, and we both love music. My bff (who knows him better than anyone) said that she thinks he likes me. My only problem is that three of my other friends like him too! Help me please!

 

Hey luvelylady13, this is a toughie. I think you need to sit down and talk with your friends. Have everyone come to an agreement about dating this guy, because one person will end up with him and the others won't. You don't want friendships ending because of some boy. After everything is cleared up, go on and make your move girl! Hope this helps! Xoxo

I have a school assignment for English on which we have to write a 600 word, NONFICTION "magazine article" about school. It sounds cool, but I have no idea on what to write about. What do you think are some good topics appropriate for highschool it college students?
Second I'm in my junior year of High school and I can already feel it getting really hard even after just one week. Normally I'm a pretty good student but I can feel the work piling on especially history notes both in an out of class which is the worst because history is my worst subject and I'm not a very good note-taker so any tips?
Thanks!

Hey girl,

Since it has to be nonfiction, maybe you could choose an issue, like cheating or bullying, and do some research about it? Try reading some teen mags (especially GL!) for ideas. As for being overwhelmed by schoolwork, talk to your history teacher about study skills now. The teacher will be impressed that you're taking the initiative to care about your grades and will have some great tips to share!

ok so theres this guy that i havent been able to get over, since like, 4th grade. almost 3 years. (im in 7th now) anyway, so was at my friends 13th bday party, and i got my friend to ask him to slow dance with me (im really shy when it comes to guys) and his idiot friend screamed "HE SAID NO!" and so i went to the bathroom and cried/laughed LOL! but he didnt say anything. so i mean i dont know if at the school dance i should ask him again, when hes alone? Cause i think he might like me. What should i do? Thanks!

Hey girl,

I would wait for him to approach you first. If he didn't apologize after what his friend did, that's probably not a good sign! Besides, don't you want a guy whose friends will be nice to you?

It is fine to date a nerd. My boyfriend is a nerd and he is really sweet. I realized that I really like him, and my friends all like him because he makes me happy. You need to get over what other people think and worry about what you think.

Going out with a geek has probably been the best choice I've ever made! They are usually the sweetest boys ever and they know how to treat a girl and they aren't full of themselves. AND they will really appreciate you for who are you are personality wise which is the best thing ever! I am currently dating someone who would usually be considered a "nerd" but I love him for it and it hasn't ruined my reputation one bit. People will think it's cool that you made the choice to date someone who isn't considered popular! I would say go for it Smile

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so my bff dated this guy for a couple days, but then they broke up because she wanted to stay friends. Well me and him were sitting with a couple friends during band, and he started to tell us why they broke up. My bff walked over and got mad. she weren't on great terms for the rest of the football game. They went on different buses and everything. Anyways, I sat with him because I needed someone to sit with. We got talking and now I really like him, but him and my bff still have a lot to work out. He thinks they're getting back together when they're really not, which means they'll probably just stay friends and he'll be single. that doesn't matter though cause i can't date my bff's ex! and i don't think this crush will go away fast either. what should i do?!??! could i at least be friends with him?

 

hey! I think you could, but you should maybe talk to your bff about it.

ok so I really llike this guy, John, from my church. He's one year older than me.we went on a mission trip together last onth with the church and were on the same team so we got kinda close.I've known him almost forever and our families kinda know each other and im good friends with his sister who's a year younger than me. last time we saw each other he gave me a hug when he left. He's just so great but the problem is we go to differnt schools. so the only time i get to see him is at youth group at out church once a week and its only for like an hour. I just don't know how to get to know him better and how to tell if he likes me since i reallly dont see him often. any tips on like how to make striking up a convo easier when i see him or tell if he likes me. thanks so much!!

 

hey! The trick to a good conversation is asking questions. They keep things moving along, and generally, people like to talk about themselves. Some signs that he may like you are if he goes out of his way to talk to you or asks if you have a bf

i am a geek and i really don't believe that being a geek is a bad hting or that dating one will ruin you social life. we are people too with real feelings. the thing about us is, we know who we are and aren't afraid to hide it to be popular or liked. it's not always about school grades or glasses with us. I for one, greatly dislike labels and stereotypes becasue they show nothing about who the people really are. its what's inside that couts. think, if a different guy who would be good for you didn't ask you out becasue of your label, how would you feel? take a chance and go for it

I am going to sound harsh, but I have no other way to put it.
If you are going to go around being obsessed with your popularity status, chances are, you are not mature enough to be dating in the first place.

This article kind of offended me because I'm what you might call a geek and have a crush on a guy who is also a "geek" , and people know that, but I'm still popular, but with my own crowd, all people who are like me and my crush.

Really, this girl probably hurt all of the people who are not as cool. They probably think that people won't like them. And really, you must be really self-centered if you don't think love is more important then being popular.
