Jealous Of The Couples...

I’m frustrated that no one truly likes me, as in guys. I’m not allowed to go steady or anything, but I can go on group dates. I’m jealous of all the couples and stuff I see at school.

I have had only two boys have a crush on me. One was really inappropriate, with sexist jokes and all, while the other was really sweet but not my type.
They are still my friends and everything but I truly want someone who likes me as I like them. I need some advice on how to stay confident that a guy will like me for me.

Hey girl, let me tell you a little secret that you may already know – boys are waaay immature.’s like they’re not even from the same species sometimes. But I know exactly how you feel. I’ve been there, and to perfectly honest, I’m kind of still there. I wasn’t allowed to date until I was 16, and even then I didn’t go on my first date until I was 17. But that didn’t last very long.

Just like you, I sometimes get jealous of my friends who have BFs and the girls who always seem to have boys lined up, waiting for the chance to date them. Jealousy is normal, but it shouldn’t define you and it certainly shouldn’t take over your life.

You’re right to want to date someone who likes you as much as you like them. I feel the same way and I’m still waiting for that special someone. You shouldn’t have to settle. You’re a great girl and any guy would be lucky to have you. So, until you find him, you just keep doing what you do. Look in the mirror every morning and tell yourself you’re beautiful. It may sound a little self-absorbed, but it works; trust me.

The right guy will like you for you and you deserve someone as great as you are. Focus on your strengths and talents. If you spend more time doing what you love, whether it be painting, writing or volunteering, then you’ll have less time to sit around the house and feel sorry for yourself and you’ll be more likely to meet someone who likes you for you. Most importantly, be patient. Remember, good things come to those who wait...I promise.

Lots of love,
