Dating Dos and Don'ts

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!

It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3

You can still talk to him when it comes to your anxiety attacks and all of that because I have those too every night so I know how it feels, but maybe you should wait. But at the end of the day it's your decision I'm just here to give advice

I feel like that too. My best friend will always hang out with her 'new friends' that I have a really bad opinion about. My friend will treat me rudely all the time and sometimes make fun of me with her friends. But, when I needed her the most in my life, she was there for me, and I told her how I felt. She says that she just wants to hang out with more people and apologized, people can be a little teasy at times.  Also, after seeing each other for a long time, people make new friends and start hanging out with them more, it doesn't mean that she doesn't like you.  This may be different for you, but just tell her about it, she will have to know you feelings at one point.  Hope I helped you.
