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!

Don't hate your little sister. You're lucky you have one. I wish I have one. I have 3 older brothers. I do things like that to them if they ignore me and don't play with me because I feel left out and I want attention. Maybe your sister is doing that so you hang with her more.

EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.
