Hey, bop fan 109! Your friend should definitely get to the bottom of the situation before she makes any decisions. If her boyfriend’s friend is the kind of guy to play pranks on people, he could be saying this to be funny (even though it’s obviously not!). If he’s jealous, it would probably be because your friend and his BFF are spending a ton of time together and he feels left out. If your friend’s BF is spending that much time with her, he probably really does like her! If she’s still worried, your friend should be upfront and ask her boyfriend about it. If it’s a lie, he’ll make sure she knows how much he likes her and everything will sort itself out! Good luck!

Hey, L.G.B.! First of all, I’m sure your BFFs don’t hate you! But if you guys are in a fight and you’re not sure why, the best thing to do is to ask them about it honestly. Tell them that you’ve been feeling left out of the group lately and you’re not sure what you did. Be ready to listen to their side and apologize if you really made a mistake, but chances are it’s just a big misunderstanding! Good luck!

It’s not becaus eI’m not allowed to have it but its because I don’t want people that I don’t know to see pictures of me. My friends keep asking me to get these social networks but I don’t know what to say. I want to fit in but I’m worried about my security. What should I do?”
Hey, lovethis! This is a great question. You are so right not to be on social media sites if you don’t feel comfortable. Just because your friends like them doesn’t mean you have to! Plus, being online comes with a lot of risks and responsibility – don’t take that on until/unless you really feel ready for it. I say stick to your guns and tell your friends that you really don’t want to be on those websites. Explain that it’s not because you don’t want to talk to them there, you just don’t like the idea of other people seeing your personal stuff. Your friends just want to share the fun they have online with you, but I’m sure they will understand your reasons for not wanting to participate! Remind them that you guys can still text each other pictures and share stories in a more private way that you’re comfortable with.

Hey, sellyluver2! This girl sounds like trouble (cue the Taylor Swift music!), but there’s good news: She’s not in charge of who gets in trouble. She can make all of the announcements she wants, but your bus driver and teachers will know when she’s the one to blame and they won’t punish the whole class just because she said to. Just keep following the rules and staying out of her way and you’ll be fine.

THen my Best Friend that is a boy, (he is a dancer) came over and did it with us. THen out of nowhere i get a huge crush on him. I start blushing, and he winks at me. This is my first REAL crush. He likes me back. how do i contain this feeling? Please help?!”
Hey, OMG!!! It’s great that you have a crush! It’s exciting! If you both like each other then that’s great! You don’t need to contain your feelings; embrace them. You’re young and it doesn’t mean you two have to date or kiss or anything like that. You can just enjoy talking to someone you like and knowing he likes you back. If you both feel the same way, trying to squash the feeling will only complicate things. Just have fun and keep being friends and enjoy your first REAL crush.
