From First Look to First Kiss

Recently we got a letter from a princess looking for prince charming. The letter said, "How do I get to know a guy, if I'm scared to let anyone get close to me, because of the way I was brought up?"

I know the feeling. All of a sudden, that goofy kid you played tag with has turned into a hottie. It's confusing. Your hormones are racing and your palms get sweaty when you see him/her. When you want to talk, you get tongue-twisted, your face gets hot and words just don't come out right. That's cool. It happens to everyone with his or her first look.

The Crush

There is something about being able to make Barbie kiss Ken that makes us think that we can control who we love, who loves us and all that cupid stuff... Right now if you could make our favorite poster-pinup appear live before your eyes would ya? You betcha. But you can't. Which makes the cutie who sits in front you in homeroom about as good as it gets.

The First Move

Zing! You realize that you may like someone. What do you do? The first thing is not to move too fast. Check 'em out. Look at how they treat other people, their friends, you. It's a big world. There will be princes and princesses but also lots of toads. So take your time.

Family Stuff

Get this. How your mom and dad get along or not, what they have said to you about boyfriends/girlfriends, dating and stuff is big. It can and will impact how you feel. If you can, you should talk to them about whatever is on your mind. Cuz believe it or not they have been through it.

Love Hurts

Puffy and J.Lo, Gwyneth and Brad, Nicole and Tom. It doesn't all work out. Be prepared for your crush not to feel the same about you. It's all good though. Just learn the words to that hip, retro song "I will survive." (If you don't know ya better ask somebody.)

First Kiss

Where my girls at? Ladies, just because you have a crush or think that you're in love doesn't mean that you have to kiss. Learn to say NO! You have a choice. If you are not sure about what you're feeling and where it's going - back off. Just chill, because sooner or later, you'll have a happy ending.

How Do You Know You're Crushing?

  • I daydream about the person 24/7.

  • All of the above - and so much more.

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
