Advice for teens and tweens on dating, friends and love. Advice on puberty and growing up.

Hey guys - we haven't forgotten about you! We know that dating can be just as awkward and tough for you as it is for girls. We've decided to give you a little advice to hopefully make things simple.

Girls Advice to Guys

1 Dial the digits. If you like a girl in your class you've probably already figured out if you have a chance with her. This is usually done via your friend who talked to her friend who talked to her, etc. If it looks like she's interested, don't leave her hanging. Call her up and ask her out. Unfortunately, it's usually up to you to make the first move. If the girl is way-cool and asks you out first, you lucked out. But if she doesn't, you've got two choices: ask her out or spend the entire year staring at her like a dork and going to movies by yourself.

1 Keep her interests in mind. Do something that you'll both be comfortable and interested in doing. For example, if you decide to go to a movie, ask her what she's interested in seeing, don't just pick the flick on your own. There has got to be a compromise between a mushy Freddie Prinze Jr. romance and a Steven Seagal blood bath.

1 Don't diss her. So you had a great time and you really dig this girl, then don't pretend she doesn't exist when you're with your buds or ignore her at school. If you're mature enough to date, you're mature enough to have a conversation with her in public. Even if things don't go as planned, and you decide this chick ain't for you, don't diss her in front of your buds. She's got buds too and you may not get another date with anyone until college.

Guys Advice to Guys

1 Nothing turns a girl on like a musician. If you don't sing or play a musical instrument (cello, violin, etc. do not count,) then you must lie.

1 Never use come-on lines, "Are you from Tennessee? Because you are the only 10 I see." Remember: they simply don't work. And they make you look like a goof.

1 Ok, on the above message it says to lie about being a musician. One, if the girl likes you for you, she won't care if you're a musician or not. Two, eventually she will want to hear you sing or play. Three, it's never good to start off a realationship with lies. Another thing girls love is you being open and sentimental. And girls love it when you say nice things about her. It wouldn't hurt to say she looks pretty sometimes. Trust me on this one. And one last thing - never give up on a girl... because she WILL eventually fall for you - we always do. And if we don't, then we're missing out on a really great guy.

1 Make a move on her. Not a dorky one like one of those goofy pick up lines. Add value to her. Tell her you like her hair or her outfit. Remember, flattery will get you everywhere!

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
