How do I deal with these
feelings I have for someone?

#firstlove, #help, #puberty

Your head might be whirling with all these new feelings you have for someone. But what do you do!?

Here are some tips for getting to know someone better.

Don't look away! It may give him the wrong impression and he may think you're not interested. Boys are not mind readers, so when you see him in the corridor or classroom, smile and say “Hi”.

Ignore your friends if they don't think he's cute. It's good they don't like him too. But don't be put off. Good friends should support your choice no matter what.

Rather than asking someone on a date, why not invite a group of friends to go somewhere? This takes the pressure off it being a date and gives you a chance to get to know each other better while having a laugh with your friends too.

If you find they don’t feel the same way about you, don’t worry. Everyone is attracted to others for different reasons and it doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you, it just means you're not suited.

One last thing, no boy is worth losing a friend over, so if you find yourself attracted to your friend’s boyfriend, step away. NOW.

Why am I only attracted to boys in fiction and girls in real life?

Lesbian Teenager

I have a crush on a straight girl. I don’t know if I should tell her or not. She is the kind of person who would let it break our close relationship, and she would never look at me in the same way again. What should I do?

Can someone help? I have a massive crush on my best friend. Weve been friends since we were 4 and now were 15 and we are so close friends so that makes it difficult. Do I tell her? I don't want to ruin our 11 year friendship or make it awkward if she doesn't feel the same. But I can't stop thinking about her! Btw we're both girls she's bi and im pan so that's not a problem. Ugh this is annoying

Hi, I need some help-How do I tell my parents that I have a crush?

I love my cat

Thanks @replying to I love my cat. The problem is that my parents don’t let me do stuff alone. I’m too young. Also my parents don’t want to go into the world right now so...
