I start school soon and I just moved here and I dont know anyone. I am worried I wont make any friends. I am shy and I dont really talk to people. Can you help?
Just introduce yourself to people. Get to know everyone you sit near in your classes, maybe a sport, something that involves interaction with others
I Like this boy but my friend called him and he said that im ugly!!!He also said that if he went out with me he would be retarded!!! what do i do????
ANY GUY who would say that kind of stuff about ANY GiRL. isn't worth it. He seems like a total loser, thats being honest. You don't need him, move on. Find a guy who cares more about personality than looks.
In school there is 3 kids who are always picking on the other kids. The only person who they are nice to is me and they wont leave me alone. They are making everybody think i am a bully. What should i do
Honestly, let people know you're nice. Ditch those ugly bullies, they sound total trash bag-ish sort of people. They really don't sound like "friends" to me. If they think you're a bully, then they dont know enough about you and they aren't true friends.
I don't have but 2 friends at school. I'm really shy, and I rarely talk to anyone. i want to make some friends, but I'm scared to talk to people. i cannot even barely talk to my teachers. I'm an 8th grader, and i think I'm too old to be so shy, but I'm shy anyway. What do i do? I totally freak out talking to anyone.
Well, this is something you should work on personally. Maybe talking to a few classmates that you sit near in a class or two. Maybe asking if you can eat lunch with some new people. Or how about just being yourself? I find that works best when it comes to meeting anybody.
there is this guy at school that i flirt with but my best friend is trying to get him to go out with her and she knows i like him and he likes me back, he is really shy, i can tell he wants to ask me out and when he tries to my best friend gets in the way what should i do?
You need to explain to your friend that you like him and he likes you too. She needs to accept the fact that you two may become a couple. If she's a true friend then she'll understand completely. And when it comes to the guy, maybe you should make the first move, guys are a little slow.
i like this boy but he went out with my closest friend and they went out for a long time i really want to ask him out but i cant cause i still think they both like each other even though there not going out
This is maybe something you should discuss with your friend. Tell her that you like him, and tell her also that you want to know what it would do if you asked him out or actually dated him. If she says it would be fine, then go ahead, but if she thinks it might cause problems between you two, then I would have to say, keep away. Exes are pretty delicate situations especially between best friends.
