Dear Carol

My crush was cruel! Should I tell his parents?


 
I liked this boy, but he sent me an e-mail saying he doesn’t like me. His letter was mean, rude and hurtful. I told his parents, and they had a long talk with him. He called to apologize. I forgave him, but I still feel angry. When I see him, I want to say all sorts of things to him. He can’t even look at me.


Dear Not Sure What To Say,

You told his parents?! Usually girls don’t involve other kids’ parents unless a situation feels frightening or dangerous. But it sounds as if he has learned that his actions were stupid and immature. Since he has already apologized, move on and let it go. Not easy. But get busy with friends, sports, activities and maybe even a new crush. Since he showed you his insensitive side, you don’t have to waste any more time crushing on him. That spell is broken, so set yourself free.
