So, today was my last day of school and I just finished sixth grade which is still elementary school. My crush just finished fifth grade. Our school is VERY small and I'm almost positive he likes me back and when we were in 5th and 6th we always had lunch together! Now I'm really sad and I can't stop crying because I'm going to miss that since middle school is upstairs and I won't see him as much and I don't him to forget about me. It's now the first night of summer vacation I'm already missing him. I'm in love with him and I don't want everything to be forgotten. It's not like we had a relationship or anything but he would always stare at me and smile and we were always too shy to talk and I'm going to miss that! Please help!

Hey girlie,

Just because you don't have the same lunch period doesn't mean you won't be able to talk anymore! You can still talk to him after school and hang out on weekends, and you can keep in touch over the summer through phone/email and through hanging out with mutual friends. Think of it as an opportunity to do new stuff together!

Thanks but what if I kind of hate her? She's nice. But...rude and self centered, not on purpose. But for instance, there was a fundraiser dinner at our old school, so M and I wanted to get the girls from our middle school together. We thought about a sleepover but neither of our parents wanted it. So we decided after the fundraiser everyone could come over to my house until 10. After almost everyone left, she and my BFF, S were left and S was going to sleep over at M's house. That hurt me. And no, I will not confront her about that but it's little things like that about her that bug me, it was as if she didn't even think about me. She lives near me too. The same thing basically happens when we go trick or treating, she never invites me to dress up with her and S or go trick or treating with them even though we live a two minute bike ride apart.

Hey girlie,

It sounds like you're not quite sure how to feel about her--on the one hand, you say you hate her and don't want to invite her to spend time with you, but you're hurt that she doesn't invite you to spend time with her. That's a little contradictory, isn't it? If she's close with your bff, you'll have to see her sometimes, even if you don't want to spend time with her one on one. But if you don't like spending time with her, you can't be upset with her for spending time with your friend without you, since you don't want to invite her to sleep over, either! With that one time, maybe there is another factor that you don't know, like that she was only allowed to have one person sleep over. If you want to go trick or treating with her or have a sleepover, if you start inviting her, she'll do the same. If you don't want to spend time with her, be nice to her when you're around your bff, but don't be upset when she doesn't invite you along if that's the same way you feel. It's totally natural for you to not get along--you can't please everyone! But if she spends a lot of time with your BFF, you'll probably have to be nice to her at least when the three of you are together.

Meghan D.! Thank you so much, but we know each other pretty well. We have gone to school together for five years now and we carpool. So I don't think that will really help a lot. So any other ideas? 

Hey girlie,

If you already know each other, maybe you could do something to show that you value her friendship, like make her a special card on her birthday or compliment her if she does awesome in class or wears a cool top. You could still hang out with her one on one even if you know her somewhat well--maybe suggest lunch at her favorite restaurant or grabbing froyo at her favorite place after school. If you two are comfortable with each other on your own, it will diffuse the awkwardness when your other friend is there too!

Please give me some advice? Smile
One of my BFFs, S has another BFF, M. M and I get along just fine but it is always sort of awkward with her and when the three of us are together I always feel like the third wheel. Is there anyway I can try to connect with M? We are really different, she's more of an extrovert (which is totes okay) and I don't know why we don't connect but we don't!
Thank you so much for your time! I hope you can help me a little bit! Laughing

Hey girlie,

Maybe you could invite your friend's friend to spend some time with you without your first BFF so that the two of you could get to know each other. That way, it will be easier to connect, and it will make the time you spend together with your other friend more comfortable too!

Hey so basically this girl who is friends with my bestfriend invited herself over my bff's house. My bff just let her come over the problem is she always comes to me and complains about her. It's making me angry because one minute they are friends and the other minute she's coming to me talking about her. I'm confused and also when I texted my bff if she was wearing her uniform on the last day her friend responded. Help! what's up with my bff? p.s. they are on and off friends


Hey! That's rough. Honesty is the only way to fix the situation. The next time your friend starts talking trash to you ask her why, if she feels this way, she acts nice you your friend. Just talk to her and explain that it's mean to be two-faced and that you just want you all to get along. good luck!
