14. There is More to Life than Boys

There is More to Life than Boys

If your love life is not going so well as of the moment, then learn to focus your energy on other areas of your life.

There’s your education, your friendships, your hobbies, and your family.

Let’s not forget about yourself, your habits, and your personal growth.

There truly is more to life than boys.

Don’t let them, or the lack of them in your life, bring you down.2

Your life as a modern teenager is complicated enough as it is, what with school, social, emotional, and mental problems, and juggling relationships with family and friends.

Add teenage love into the equation, and you sometimes feel like you’re in over your head.

But remember that in reality, things are not as bad as they seem in your head.

Don’t let your emotions, hormones, and imagination get the best of you.

Welcome the lessons that teenage love has to teach you.2

You will be a much better person for it.

What other lessons do you think should be taught to or learned by teenage girls (or boys)?

So there's this guy I'm friends with and he is one of my closest friends. We talk a lot and last year his girlfriend even got jealous that we talked so much. The thing is, she had a reason to. I've liked him for about a year now and I'm just not thinking he likes me back. He's sweet and funny and amazing and he kinda flirts (he's really bad at it). I flirt a lot with him and my friends all have tried to get him to like me. Every single one thinks that we would make a cute couple. I've tried sooo many things to try to get him to like me, without just flat-out asking him out. I really like this guy and I don't want to let him go. I can't figure out what I should do...
He also fliers with a lot of other girls too when he's around me!

Also, he always goes out of his way to walk me out of my classes with him, and he sits and talks to me whenever he can it seems. A couple of days ago, he came up from behind me, and hugged me tight! Finally, we were playing a game together online where you can chat together, and he said "I have a huge secret to tell you, but you can't tell anyone, okay?!" But when I said what is it, he said that was meant for someone else and it didn't involve me! I didn't know what to think! Plus, you have to push a lot of buttons to get to the chat area in the first place which takes you through the game and the name of the person you were playing... Are these good signs?! Thanks so much for all your help! I love your website!
