Ask Lucky: My BFF Hates Boys!

My friend had a bad experience with a BF, and she’s taking it out on every guy we know. She makes up lies about my crushes so I won't like them. She says she doesn't want me to get hurt.

A bad breakup can leave a girl shouting, “I hate boys!” Be supportive of your friend’s feelings, but remind her that one encounter with a good-for-nothing guy doesn’t justify condemning the entire male gender. Tell her you know she’s trying to protect you but that she can’t come between you and your crushes.

You have the right to crush on boys, even if there’s a chance you might get hurt. You can learn from any experience, even if it’s a bad one. Her lesson should have been to be more picky and take things slowly before getting involved with a guy – not cutting off all ties with the boy species.
