    So about a month ago one of my best friends and I got into a fight. I told her a secret because I trusted her and I found out that she told a couple people, including one person whom is notorious for his loose tongue. I confronted her about it and she insisted that she didn't tell anyone and whoever said she was gossiping is a liar. I knew she was lying but she refused to acknowledge that I had caught her at all. Finally three days later she emails me saying that she did in fact lie. She apologized but I yelled at her and told her that I can't trust her anymore and her lying broke the crucial trust in a friendship. Then i accused her of telling other people the secret and told her i could never trust her with anything ever again. I later apologized for being harsh but things have been weird and tense between us ever since. We still joke and talk but i can feel the tension between us. What should i do? I don't want to loose her as a friend! Also, this girl who has been ruining my life ever since she started liking my best friend has been hanging out with her (the one who lied) a lot recently and I'm afraid this b*tch has been talking **** about me to her and turning her against me. HELP! please! sorry this was so long!

I think that's bullshit. And i know he's not some old dude because i checked his school website and he's on the baseball team and everything's legit but i'm just wondering what is he hiding? Is it shady and should i stop talking to him? Thanks. Im 16 btw

Freshman and sophomore year we would sit together at lunch because we had the same group of friends and we would chill outside in groups. and we would talk and stuff but her never really told me any secrets. But this year, we've gotten A LOT closer. We hang out alone a lot but as buddies and we take the train home together everyday.. he told me who he liked a couple months ago but he said he only likes her a little and he's rejected every girl who's asked him out in the past. We are super close now and we have fun together whenever we hang out and my other friends have always said we'd be a cute couple but the thought used to gross me out. But now i think i'm starting to like him and I don't know what to do. i'm not sure if he likes me and if I tell him how i feel it could ruin our friendship plus, he's rejected every girl that has asked him out... and I don't want to be one of them. (he's not gay btw lol) What should I do? OH btw, a couple weeks ago on the train i asked him to rate me HONESTLY and he gave me a 7.3 and then today I asked him to rate the girl he sort of likes and he gave her a 7.2.... but i think he was just being nice to me and gave me a high number... ugh.. what do I do please help!

  • How do I get my friend to stop smoking pot?

    Okay so one of my closest friends started smoking pot over the summer. He told me that he did it once and that it was stupid and he wouldn't do it again. So I said fine, whatever. Because I believed him. Just for the record I am against drugs and even though I know pot isn't really that bad for you it can lead to worse things. So today after... show more
    Okay so one of my closest friends started smoking pot over the summer. He told me that he did it once and that it was stupid and he wouldn't do it again. So I said fine, whatever. Because I believed him. Just for the record I am against drugs and even though I know pot isn't really that bad for you it can lead to worse things. So today after school I asked if he wanted to go to starbucks with my friends but he kept checking his phone and said he had to be back in time to hang out with this kid.. lets call the kid Alvin. My friend doesn't even like Alvin that much and mentioned several weeks ago that he was a "stupid pot head". I asked him then if he was gonna go do pot with him and just seeing his facial reaction gave him away. I got really upset and he tried to justify it by saying he's had a tough week and that the pot was free. I told him that I was really disappointed with him, not only because he stooped to low as to smoke pot but because he was using Alvin (who he doesn’t really care for) for free pot. I called him pathetic and I know he felt bad. A few minutes later I remembered that he couldn’t hang out yesterday because he was going to this focus group where the pay was 75 dollars. I asked him if he was spending the 75 bucks on pot and I could tell that he was/did. I was so upset I couldn’t even stay there, I walked out of starbucks and started heading back to school. Later on he came and said he’d blow Alvin off and hang out with us but he doesn't get the point. See, our friendship isn’t really deep. We just goof off together and make fun of the teachers we hate, but we’re good friends. And I’m not sure why I’m making such a big deal because EVERYONE in my school smokes pot but.. I’ve always respected him for not falling into that crowd and kind of staying true to himself. It gets me really upset and disappointed and I keep on tearing up. How do I get him to stop? He’s blowing his money and a lot of my friends started out by doing pot like once a month but now I know they go cocaine, heroine, LCD, shrooms ect.. and I REALLY don’t want him to go down that path. I’m afraid if I confront him that he’ll just shrug it off and not listen and we wont be close anymore. How do I get him to stop? Please help ik this is long but I needed to get it all out. And please no responses saying that pot is “good for you” or that its not that bad. Thanks ☺

    So there's this boy.. let's call him Sean. Last year Sean and I became really close and I told him that I liked him. He told me he liked me too, and everything was great. But.. he didn't really do anything anything to take our relationship further. I met him through one of my best friends and He and I only hung out a couple times. We mostly had a Facebook relationship, but I still felt really close to him. Eventually I got tired of just staying friends even though we both knew we liked each other and I feel really horrible about this.. but I gradually stopped talking to him.. and blocked him on Facebook. It was during Finals and I had to study because my parents were yelling at me about my grades and stuff. I intended to unblock him after my tests but.. i never did. It's been a year now and I saw him last weekend in the train station. I realized how much I miss him and remembered how sweet he was and how much we have in common. We haven't talked in so long though! And when he went on vacation with my friends family (their families are really close) he kept on asking my friend where I'd been. I feel soo bad and I really wanna talk to him again! He's probably moved on and thinks Im a total ***** :( I left him a voicemail the night I saw him in the train but he never called me back. I unblocked him but we aren't Facebook friends. I wanna be friends with him again. What should I do? Did I lose our friendship forever? Please help!

    So there's this guy that I go to school with that I've known for a little over a year. We're both sophomores in high school.A couple months ago we started to kiss each other on the cheek like every time we saw each other then it stopped for a while because he liked this other girl. I knew we were never serious or anything. Then a couple weeks ago he kissed me. and ever since then we'd pretty much kiss every time we saw each other and once I even "asked to use the bathroom" during class and came down to meet him and we made out and stuff... but yeah you get the picture. So today I see him after lunch and he says he needs to talk to me later during 10th period and asks for my number. So i give it to him, and we hug and I go to class. So I leave my class 10th period and go meet him but he's with a bunch of his friends some of whom I don't really like. So obviously we can't talk in private. So I don't want to interrupt him from his group of friends and I leave. What does he want to talk about? We aren't a couple yet... we aren't just friends. I don't know if I want to date him. Honestly, I don't know him as well as my really good friends.. and there's this freshman that I'm kinda into too, but we haven't kissed or anything.. So what should I do? Please help!! What does his "we'll talk later" mean? Thanks!
