Let’s get to this week’s questions!

It will be a real honor, but I won’t be with my friends anymore. I will also probably get bullied. Should I skip or should I not? My dad will be very disappointed if I don’t.”

Hi, joannamzhao! This sounds like a stressful situation! And you’re right, it totally would be an honor. However, you should definitely make sure to think about what you want. Even though your teachers and parents are pushing you to skip the grade, you have to think about your own feelings because in the end, the choice is yours. If you are worried about it not working out or getting bullied, you should definitely talk about that to your teacher and dad. Maybe the three of you can have a meeting and talk about the situation. Tell them you’re nervous, and they’ll definitely understand. Maybe they’ll have some advice for you, or maybe you can come up with a different solution. Good luck!

Hi, jenyanairobi! It always stinks when a friend moves away, but that doesn’t mean your friendship has to end! There are tons of ways to keep in touch with your BFF: email, Facebook (if you’re allowed!), video chats, text messaging, or even old school snail mail! It might be hard to stay as close as you are because even writing tons of letters can’t compare to actually hanging out and seeing each other all the time, but you shouldn’t be sad! Your best friend will always be there for you, even if she’s miles away! Good luck!

MeLovinLouisandKendall wrote, “I have a question blog girl. how do you ask a guy out without being super nervous? Just wonderin…”

Hi, MeLovinLouiandKendall! Hmm, I’m not sure there IS a way to ask your crush out without being just a little bit nervous! But, there are definitely ways you can make it easier on yourself. Basically, ask him out in a way that feels the most comfortable to you. Do you prefer text or Facebook chatting? Ask him out then! Are you brave enough to go up to his locker after class and flat-out ask him? Go for it? Want your gal pals to give you support? Invite him to hang out with a group and then bring up a date when you guys are alone. Either way, keep in mind that HE’S probably nervous, too, so just be as casual as possible. Good luck!

Cheer1D wrote, “Hey Blog Girl! My best friend Kaytlyn is the greatest friend a girl could have, but she always teases me about my crush. We’re on the same cheerleading squad, and she sent a group text to the whole team and in there she was teasing me because my crush is on the basketball team. She pushes me into him on purpose and talks to him about what I said about him when I’m not around. How can I let her know that I’ve had enough?”

Hi, Cheer1D! It sounds like Kaytlyn might be a little jealous! Maybe she’s worried that you’ll spend all your time with your crush and won’t get as much BFF time, so she’s acting out by teasing you and being kinda mean. You should definitely talk to her about it. Ask her to hang out after cheerleading practice, and explain how the text and her teasing really hurts your feelings. Maybe she’ll open up about why she acted like that, and you guys can work through this mess. Good luck!

Katie wrote, “hi blog girl, i have a boyfriend and he is really sweet to means tells me how pretty i am, but around his friends he is a total jerk! how should i approach him or do i just let it go?”

Hi, Katie! Ugh, boys. Your boyfriend sounds like a sweetheart but you should definitely talk to him about how he acts around his friends. Keep in mind that boys act differently together than girls do — you probably act a little different around your friends, too! But, there’s a clear line between acting like a boy and acting like a jerk. Don’t just let it go, because then it will just keep bothering you until it turns into an even bigger issue or fight! The next time you guys are hanging out, bring it up to him. Don’t accuse him of acting like a jerk, but mention that you’ve noticed he acts kinda differently around his friends than when he’s just around you. Good luck!
