There is this boy I've known and loved all my life. He's a friend of the family. I'm pretty sure he has feelings for me too, but every time we see each other nothing really happens and we don't see each other often enough. Because of him I won't go out with anyone else and find it impossible to like anyone else. We have this mutual friend who supposedly likes me and the three of us have been called "the three musketeers." If two of us went out, the other might be uncomfortable. But I love this guy and our parents kid around about us getting married but I'm hopeful. What should I do ?
After a two-year relationship, my boyfriend and I have broken up. He was my first true love. I am 18 years old and have been with him since I was 16. How do I cope with all this pain? Also, how do I act around other guys?
I really like this young man. There are only 3 problems. 1. I'm Caucasian, 2. He's African-American, and 3. My father's side of the family is racist. How can I get my dad and his side of the family to accept my choice without them disowning me? I'm 18 years old, and I feel like they're treating me like a 10-year- old. Society is really confusing me. In the 60's and 70's they were saying NO SEGREGATION and now that these two races are coming together by loving each other, society is saying SEGREGATION. Please - I need help, I need to make myself happy, but I also don't want to loose my family either in the process of making myself happy.
I just started school a week ago, and during my lunch there is this girl who sits across from me and my friends. I don't even know her but she is very cute, she has the same clothing style as me and she seems very nice. I want to go up and talk to her but I'm kinda shy when talking to girls I don't know. I don't know how to approach her and I don't know what to say and how to introduce myself. What should I do? Can you help me out?
I am a 13 year old male. And I was wondering what pubic hair is. I am growing it and wanted to know what it is, what the purpose of it is. Is it all right to shave it? Thanks.
I have our Homecoming dance coming up in two weeks and I don't have a date. My friends keep telling me that I can have fun without a date (they all have dates) but I feel like I need one because I don't like to be left out on the slow dances.
Me and my boyfriend (we're 13) have been dating a little over a month now, and I think I'm falling in love with him. He usually acts like that shy type. He doesn't tell you a lot about how he feels or is that open. I was wondering if this has anything to do with me, or maybe his family? And also, if he is like this, how will I know when he starts to really love me? I hope you can help me.
I really want to ask this girl I've known for a long time to Homecoming but, I'm afraid if she says no, it will be awkward every time I see her or talk to her and I don't want to lose her as a friend because of this. What do I do?
I've been going out with this guy for a while and I really like him but every time that he's around, I'm really quiet ( trust me, that's unusual) and I get wicked tongue tied... sometimes I can just relax but other times I can't and when I say stuff it comes out all messed up.What should I do?
I am a 19-year-old college Freshman at Arizona State University and my girlfriend is a 17-year-old high school senior at a school back in my hometown in NJ....We've recently been talking of marriage and we're kind of really wary of it, even though we both know we want it. I'd just like to hear your opinions on this matter and maybe you can help us out on this one.
