Liv wrote, “Dear Blog Girl, In summer camp a few years ago, I met this really cute guy. He liked me and I liked him. We were like, best friends now, I’m going to a new school (middle school) and he goes to MY middle school. I haven’t talked to him sence camp a few years ago. How do I say somthing and what do I say without it being awkward?”
Hi, Liv! Even though it’s been a few years, don’t worry about it being awkward. Just start by jokingly introducing yourself to him and asking if he remembers you (and since you spent time at camp together, it’d be totally ridiculous for him not to!). You’ve got it a lot easier than some other girls when they get crushes, because you’ve got all those cool camp memories to talk about. Invite him to sit with you at lunch, or to hang out with you and your friends so you guys can catch up! Keep in mind that you both may have changed a little bit since the summer at camp, but because you were BFF then, it probably won’t be too hard to start being friends again! Good luck!
babewithbrains wrote, “Hi blog girl. my boyfriend is super cute and wants to kiss me but i dont know if im good at it. what do i do?”
Hi, babewithbrains! First off, totally don’t feel pressured to kiss him if you aren’t comfortable or ready. If you think you’re ready to take the step though, you should definitely keep in mind that all first kisses are, well, awkward. All of those romantic movies where couples kiss in the rain? Those hardly happen! Chances are, your boyfriend is just as nervous about kissing his super cute girlfriend (you!), so he might be freaking out about whether he’s good at it, too. Just wait for the right moment, and don’t think too much about it if it feels silly or if he misses or if you accidentally bump noses. Good luck!
elauto wrote, “Dear Blog Girl,
All of my friends have already lost their baby teeth, but I still have some of mine! It makes me feel like I’m not growing as fast as all of my other friends and lowers my self-confidence. Plz help!”
Hi, elauto! Having some baby teeth totally doesn’t mean you’re a baby! Everyone loses their first set of teeth at different times, but they will all definitely come out eventually. Some girls lose their baby teeth really early, and for others, it can be months or years later! The molars — you know, those big teeth in the back of your mouth? — are usually the last ones to fall out, so if that’s what you have left, then no one will even be able to tell they’re baby sized. Just be patient, and enjoy the fact that YOU can still get money from the Tooth Fairy and your big-teeth friends can’t! Good luck!
jealous wrote, “dear blog girl, my bff has dumped me for some other girl she thinks is mature and sophisticated and because she thinks i dumped her for someone else. the girl is really a mean bully and i don’t know how to stop her from hanging out with her. the thing is sometimes i also get a bit jealous of them even though i have my own new bff. help!”
Hi, jealous! It’s totally normal to get a little bit jealous when you see someone who used to be your BFF get super-close with someone else. However, don’t let any of those mean feelings get to you! It sounds like you really need to talk to your BFF. She’s probably a little bit jealous of you and your new friends, too, especially if she thinks YOU dumped HER first! Invite her to sit with you at lunch, or hang out sometime. If you guys chat about whatever fight you had, then maybe all this drama can be cleared up. Good luck!
hannah wrote, “hey blog girl i do a run club and i dont like to change in the bathrooms after school they stink.i want to go to school cute but comfortable and i dont know wat to wear ecpesialy since its winter i cant wear shorts so wat do i wear?”
Hi, hannah! School bathrooms can definitely be pretty gross, plus a lot of girls are probably just as uncomfortable as you are with changing in front of everyone. On the days that you have run club after school, you could wear a cute athletic outfit. That way, you don’t have to change after class, and you can wait until you’re home to shower and change out of the stinky clothes. Winter definitely makes shorts a no-no, but remember to keep in mind that while you’ll be cold at first, all of that running is probably going to make you work up a sweat. Look for comfortable leggings or yoga pants-types of bottoms. Those are warm (and stylish) enough but also provide lots of flexibility for running. If you still want to wear shorts, you can put just put on some cute sweatpants over them during the day, and you’ll be able to easily take them off and throw them in your bag without having to do a total outfit change. Good luck!
