Dear Cinderella,


If you really like this guy and want to see where things with him could go, then you’ve got to tell your best friend how you feel. Will it hurt her? Yeah, probably. But it will sting so much more if you don’t clue her in.


So sit your best friend down and talk to her about how you feel. Make sure she understands how much you care about her and her feelings, and that while you would never want to do anything to hurt or betray her, you really like this guy, and if it’s OK with her, you’d like to give things a shot with him.


Of course she may say that it’s not OK with her and she’d prefer if you didn’t go after him. If that happens, you have a choice to make. You can either go for him anyway and risk losing your friend, or you can respect her wishes.


But the important thing to realize is that you deserve happiness and if you truly like this guy you have every right to go for him, but in doing so, be open and honest with your best friend and show consideration for her feelings. If you expect her to be a good friend to you then you need to do the same for her.

Don't go out of your way to talk about it. A lot of people are off put by people who talk about their intelligence a lot. If it comes up in a conversation, you can talk about it, but you probably won't need to tell them. Usually with people who are genuinely intelligent, they don't need to talk about their intelligence, it's obvious to everyone around you, and therefore people who are not as intelligent might feel like you're rubbing it in.

Maybe you should wait until you feel a little bit more comfy talking to them, and then tell them!  :D

There is a slight issue with that. I am rarely comfortable talking with children my own age.

I go to a good private school and I was wondering if I should tell any of my friends/more like peers that I am gifted. This means that I am at least two standard deviations in terms of IQ than them. I don't know what to do. Any help?
