Chapter 14


Dear Alexis,

Hey, so see my best friend recently told me she "liked" me and by "like" I mean in love with me. But I don't see her that way...nor do I "swing" that way. I told her that very nicely but I am worried this has messed up our friendship. What can I do? How can I tell if this even really has effected our friendship.

Not wanting a friendship to sink girl.

Dear Sinking Friendship,

Unfortunately, your friendship has changed. Even if she says it won't, it's not true. It may be hard for her to get over you. Whether a friendship is a boy and girl or a girl and a girl; when feelings get in the way, it's hard to go back to normal. The only thing you can hope for is that she falls for someone so deeply that she forgets about ever liking you.


Ok... So in school, I go up 1 grade for math. This year, I'm going into 8th grade, and i'll be going to my high school (my school district has kindergarten-5th in elementary, 6-8 in middle, 9-12 in high). I'm nervous about this because the high school is really big, about 2.5 times as big as the middle school. I'm also short for my age, so I feel like I might end up being way smaller than almost everyone else in the school.

Any tips on how to deal with this? Thanks!


Dear Anonymous,

Congrats on excelling in math! It's normal to get nervous when you're first going into high school. It's a whole new world filled with so much uncertainty. High school is where everyone is on a journey to find themselves and what they will become in the future. It is full of ups and downs but at the end, you feel proud of what you have accomplished. This is the time to really see who you are in the inside. You need to go to high school with your head held high and full of self confidence. Also, try to find someone in class that you will be able to befriend so you don't feel so alone through high school.


I have this crush on a boy but I don't know if he likes me. He's in my gym class and I want to were running shorts but I'm very self conscious so I always wear basketball shorts. What should I do?

If you're talking about gym clothes, then it's rare for anyone to really like them. It seems that your mind is your own enemy. You need to try to find what the "best" part of you is and make that the focal point. The most important thing you need is self confidence because that's the sexiest thing a guy will notice. If he doesn't notice then there is something wrong with him and you need to look elsewhere. Also, there are gym clothes out there that might give you a boost of self confidence.
