I always want to have
a cute relationship. But when I have a BF, I get nervous and non-romantic and
we break up in less than two weeks. How can I stop being so nervous and awkward
around my crush/BF?
Every relationship is awkward in the beginning! Meeting and
talking to a crush can be nerve-racking. But don’t sweat the small stuff—he
probably won’t even notice your untweezed eyebrows or your mismatched socks.
When a guy looks at you, he can’t see those butterflies in your stomach.
So what to do? Make sure to laugh off the times you trip
over your shoelaces or stutter your words. He’ll think it’s cute and he’ll like
how confident you are in your quirks. Suggesting your own date ideas will make
you feel in control. Pick a fun activity you can do together (it’ll give you
something to focus on other than making conversation). How about catching the
school play or the latest flick? Or, hit up the batting cages or go for a quick
round of putt-putt. Having something to do will help calm those nerves and put
your butterflies to rest. Keep in mind, he’s probably nervous too!
If you’re still not comfortable with your BF, it’s probably
time to move on. We always think that the best relationships come from being
friends with a guy first. When you find the right guy, having fun together will
be easy and carefree. Just take a deep breath and be yourself, babe!
