A few of your friends are zipping past you faster than you can say, “Slow down, buckaroos!” Buds don’t always go through life at the same pace. Here’s how to cope when you feel like you’re eating their dust.
Changin’ Like the Leaves
You and your BFFs used to joke that your crew made up the school’s chapter of The Never-Been-Kissed Club. But yesterday, you realized you were the sole smooch-free sister in the posse. And the girls decided to skip this year’s Apple Fest because they’re “sooo over it.” But it’s a tradition! What gives? Do your friends make you feel like you’re, oh…about 5?
A few of your girls have ditched their usual jeans-and-tee attire for a look that would make Rihanna blush. What’s up with that? First off, no need to follow in their stilettos—stay true to whatever style makes you feel comfortable.
Get into the Groove
Your buds are balking at the Jo Bros tour—and it’s gonna be amazing! Look, just like you start your periods and grow boobs at diff times, your tastes won’t always be in synch. Take your little cousin to see the Jonas Brothers…then let your buds turn you on to some Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
So Not Worth It
If a BFF has been getting into some shady biz, steer clear. Sometimes speedy pals take a turn in the wrong direction and get in tonsa trouble. No need to follow her to a keg party in the woods. She won’t budge on the boozing? Put the friendship on ice for now.
Time to Reboot
OK, so your bud bond may have veered, but that doesn’t mean it has to come to a permanent halt. Figure out what you and your buds can still agree on. Swap your air guitar ‘n’ drum routine for the real thing by starting up a fierce girl group. You could rock out in a whole new direction…together.
