Ok so my boyfriend that i am mad in love with is moving next month!!Hes moving to Texas to see his mom and I wont get to see him!I had plans to lay in bed and cry until I can get over it which will take me pratically forever and I thought to myself I cant waste my time doing that.Help!!!Btw im in the 8th grade.
Hey! I know it's hard, but just try to concentrate on other things for a while, like your friends or an activity you love. It's tough now but every day your life will bring you something new to learn about or help with or share with someone, and when you make the most of your days, the hurt will go away even sooner than you think. I hope this helps girl!

So the guy I like is in my choir and has the most amazing voice ever. Me and my sister saw sweeny todd with one of our friends, and he was there. There's a "Kiss Me" song in it, and later he sang it to me and kissed me, my first kiss. He was so sweet. We're dating now.

I was texting one of my guy friends when I said love u gtg bi! After that he started acting really weird and a couple days later I asked him what was wrong. He asked me if I loved him or just really liked him and I meant it as his friend. When I told him that he was like ok and I was like am I so awful that if u would hate it if I liked u? He said no that he just thought that I had friendzoned him and I told him I was still confused, and he told me to search it on urban dictionary. I know what it means but I thought that meant he liked me. I forgot about it for awhile and then one day I decided to find out y he had told me to search it on urban dictionary. I searched it and it says when a man is in a friendship with an attractive female that he wants to have a romantic relationship with. Does this mean he was trying to tell me that he likes me? Does he like me? Please help me I am so confused! Thanks.
Hey GL girl! He probably didn't mean anything by the Urban Dictionary definition- it's probably a coincidence you stumbled upon it. However, if he does feel liked you 'frienzoned' him, he probably means that he wanted to get closer to you. Ask him if he likes you, and if he'd like to hang out- you can go see a movie or go to dinner with a group JUST as friends. Going with a group takes a lot of pressure off you and your date, and you'll be able to hang out with him and see if you like him. Hope this helps, GL girl!

I liked my best guy friend for almost two years and seven or so months ago I told him I liked him. He likes me back - a lot. He really likes me and I hear him talk about me all the time. The problem is that I don't like him anymore. I can't stand him. I had a chance to go to a big city to chill and hang out with my friends and I said no because he was going too. He drives me insane and I don't know what to do. I don't want to hurt him by telling him that I don't like him but I feel like I'm leading him on by not telling him. Should I tell him?
Hey GL girl! Best thing to do? Telling the truth, but in a nice, kind way. Tell him that you don't like him romantically any more and that you'd appreciate it if he could tone it down and stop talking about you so much. Don't be mean about it- say it kindly and ask him nicely.
Hope this helps, GL girl!

Mod Mod Mod I have a problem, I an 14 but all the guys I seem to like are way older, like in their twenties. I know I can't do anything about it, do I like them because they are more mature and grown up? What am I supposted to do about this delema? Is it just me or does this happen to other girls as well?
Hey GL girl! If these guys are famous (like celebs, stars, etc), it's pretty normal. Tons of girls have celeb crushes on guys that are older than they are. If this is a guy you personally know, you can think he's cute, but since you're younger than he is, try not to act on those feelings. Crushes are totally normal at your age, and all girls like different types of guys!

So, I have a long time friend, we've known each other since we were 4, and I recently saw him an played baseball. I was the catcher/umpire for my little brother, and as My Friend pitched, he kept pitching bad! So I said "It's like your trying to hurt me!" And he said "I'd never try to hurt you." And I fell silent, not knowing how to respond. Then he talked to me for like, 3hrs about stuff...about me! What I liked, what I didn't, my birthday, my fav sports, ect! Was he flirting?
Hey GL girl! If he talked to you for a long time, he was probably flirting This being said, don't take his actions or what he said as flirting- he may have just wanted to talk to you nicely. If you guys have known each other for a long time, he's probably very comforatable talking to you, and wants to get to know you better. If you like him and think he likes you, try arranging something fun that you can do together (go to the movies, see a sports game, etc). It may turn out that he truly does like ya!

This section is called "guys," but I have a story about something my girlfriend did for me that I'd like to submit. Are same sex relationships permitted on this website? They most certainly should be.
Hey GL girl! Feel free to send your submission in!

I think that sounds like a great idea! Any ideas on what we should do? We live in a small town, where there isn't much to do, and neither of us can drive to somewhere else. Should we just meet up at the movie theatre, or have a small bon fire at my house with some other friends? Thank you sooo much, Lynae!
Hey Eve W, the movies would be a cute romantic date for you two. Have fun girl! And glad I could help you! Xoxo

Lynae P. we flirt all the time! One day while we were on a break, we were in the pool messing around with a rescue tube, and he had it, but we were in deep water, so I had to tread. I got tired, so I grabbed on to him from behind, and he asked me what I was doing. I said he should escape, since that's a skill we need to know as lifeguards. He responded that he didn't want to, so I let go after a little bit longer. Is it possible that he likes me, or does he just like to flirt? Thanks!
Hey Eve W, mhm it could be possible. Maybe before you tell him you like him, you could ask him to hang. How does that sound? Xoxo

So I have liked my crush for a year. He rejected me last year when I told him I liked him, but I think that was because his bff liked me. Now, a few weeks ago, he texted me about something random. He never talks to me. Ever. The next day, he was all shy with his friends, and I could've sworn I heard his friend say "Go talk to her", and I heard him say "No, I can't". Then he walked over, and "tripped" over the chair next to me. He apologized. I thought he liked me. But then I read his instagram, and he told two girls that he liked them, one 6 weeks ago, and the other 5 weeks ago. He asked the one girl out 2 weeks ago, and she didn't say anything. He commented "damn" on the other girls pic a few days ago. He always gets shy near me. I'm so mad at him for being such a player. How should I handle this? Should I ask him what his intentions were that day he texted me out of the clear blue? I'm just tired of feeling hurt. Thanks Gl
Hey isabellec, I think he likes you. Sometimes people like more than one person. There have been times I've liked 5 guys at once, so no worries. And plus those other girls didn't even respond to him, so you may have a higher chance with him. You could ask him why he texted you, and maybe his answer will give you a clue on how he feels about you. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Lynae P. yes I'm not very confident I am in some ways but I have very low confidence when it comes to guys
also do you think my sisters finances brother is just being nice to me because of my disorder or do you think I'm being overly dramatic and worrying too much?
Hey redvelvetluv, finding confidence can be a difficult thing to do sometimes. No matter how many ways I suggest you look for it, you have to actively work at being confident. So everyday do something to make yourself feel better about who you are. Make a list of at least ten (it can be much longer if you'd like) things you like about yourself and read the list back to yourself each day. Ever heard the phrase "When you look good, you feel good?". Well that's true. So make yourself look nice. You don't have to spend loads of money on fancy clothes, but be sure you have good hygiene and alsways look neat and put together. This one may be a little more difficult, but try surrounding yourself with more positive people. If you can't, have something positive in your life you can always turn to. Like for me, I always watch funny videos online when I'm sad. So you could try that. And no I think he's just being nice. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Hey redvelvetluv, I'm a little confused girly. What do you need help with? Do you need help with gaining confidence? Xoxo

I work with my crush. We're both lifeguards at the town pool. He's only a year older than me, and my mom taught him in middle school, so I don't think she'd mind if we dated. The problem is, although I think he likes me, I can't tell, and I'm too shy to tell him I like him. Not to mention the fact that if I did tell him, and he didn't feel the same way, we'd still have to work with each other, and I don't want it to get awkward. What should I do? Thanks!! <3
Hey Eve W, have you noticed any indications of him maybe liking you? Do you guys flirt at all? Xoxo

I'm sixteen, and there is a guy I like/want to be friends with, we are best friends right now, and I don't want to get over him or forget about him, but I want you to help me not think about him so much. It's like I can't stop! And I'm still not sure of my feelings, but I think I like him as more than a friend. HELP me stop obsessing over him! Thanks! Xoxo
Hey Gigilove321, you should start doing things to busy your time. Instead of laying around thinking about him, get up and do some things. Need to clean your room? Haven't taken a walk yet this summer? How about spa pampered yourself? Use your time to do things like this. The busier you stay, the less time you'll have to obsess about him. Hope this helps! Xoxo

Okay, so I've been dating my boyfriend for a few weeks now. We get along so well, except for the fact that he doesn't like public dates because he gets super nervous and he thinks that everyone is staring at him. I like him a lot, but it's starting to get me a little annoyed because he doesn't even want to go out for froyo without having a mini nervous attack. Don't get me wrong, I love going to his house and cuddling, but I want to go out! help! What should I do???
Hey girl! It’s hard to get a boyfriend to do something differently
without looking like you’re trying to change them as a person. They key is to
give small and subtle hints. Start by mentioning how you’d really like to go
out to see a new movie next weekend. You could also steer him someplace where
there are other couples too- it’s easier to hold hands if everybody else is,
too. Don’t push him too far outside of his comfort zone, especially if he’s
worried about spending money, but do get outside!
