Question No. 5: Guy trouble X3

Our question-asker has a lot of guy-related questions. I'm as confused as the next girl on that topic, but let's try to give her some advice!

Dear PLS,
1. How do you know if you like one guy?

2. And what if you know a guy who likes a girl but her boyfriend found out and now they won't talk about it?

3. And what if your friend is being bullied by her ex - and he said some bad thing about her crop top and body?

Trying to be popular, 10


These aren't easy questions. Here's what I know...

1)Sometimes it is hard to know if you like someone or like-them like them. I say keep hanging around the guy and see what your heart tells you.
2)On this one, I think it's best to let them worry about their own crushes.
3)Bullying is no good. Do you mean real bullying like hurting her physically or saying mean stuff to her? If so, I'd tell her to ditch that boyfriend and tell a parent or some other adult. If a boy who's you boyfriend isn't nice to you, who needs him!?

What other tips and tidbits do you guys have?

Think pink!
Jemma

#3. ok she should tell him to leave her alone. if he does not then he is harassing her. cause he is her ex and they dont talk much after they break up. so making fun of her is harassing her.

#2 i think that if they want your help/advice on what to do then yous should try and give them that bt if they want to figure it out by themselves then respect that and let them.

#1
Usually you find yourself thinking about him,you smile when he looks about you,you lose interest of all things other than him when he talks to you and you end up looking at him alot.

for number one, I undersand how you feel. You don't hate him but you don't LOVE him. Just try talking to him and see where it takes you.

I have a HUGE problem. My homeroom teacher is really weird looking and strange. He makes witty jokes about books that no one gets, and he can be pretty mean. I like him though, cause I'm one of his favorite students, he has never been mean to me about anything, and i've sorta grown to like him as a teacher. The problem is, whenever i say I'm in his homeroom, the usual response is, "Eww, i feel SO bad for you!" "That must be TERRIBLE!" or "Wow! He is SO gross!" For a while i just went along with it, but now it's getting annoying. how do i say he's one of my favorite teachers the next time someone laughes at me???!!

PLEASE HELP!!!

1. You know if you like a guy if you get this weird feeling in your stomach when you talk to him, and when he tries to make a joke, you find yourself laughing even though it's not the least bit funny.

2. Unless it's you, i don't think you should be worrying about it. But if it is you, you should tell your boyfriend that you don't like the other guy, theres nothing going on, and that if he doesn't start talking to you again you should probably re-think your relationship.

3. If your friend is being bullied by her ex then she should tell him to stop or she will tell an adult. I know it may be hard at first but the only way to make it stop is to tell someone. that's the only way. at this point, standing up for herself won't work anymore. Tell an adult if it gets worse.

#1 you think about him alot, u want to talk to him and be with him but he is also kinda scary, ur self-conscious around him. this is from my experiences some people want to show-off for their crush instead of being self-conscious soo....

#2 i think you should stay out of it unless they are asking for help

#3 thats not ok at all you should tell an adult about it.

Whoa!! That ex is SO mean!! I mean, teasing a girl about their body parts is so mean. If I were you, I would reassure ur friend to make them feel k. Tell them to be a 'big girl' so that'll make them feel good. Ignore the guy and most importantly, tell a teacher or an adult

- I know EVERYBODY says to do that but look, it works. I know by experience. This kid was dead quiet for the rest of the day after he got told off for bullying! Teachers have the POWWEERRR!!! :)

Hope this helps.

#1 when you see him you can feel yourself heat up (face turning red) and there's a pit in your stomach. I class when the teacher is partnering you up you secretly hope your with him and/or get disappointed when your not partners with him. You feel he is different than most other boys.

Dear trying to be popular, it is definitely hard to tell if you like somebody or somebody like you. Just follow your heart for every thing, and do what ever you think it is right. You will trust yourself and be independent. Think pink! PLS

dev, its ok to like a boy who has a girlfriend. its not like you have to have a boyfriend or anything, so why not just try being friends with him?

Well if the ex is bulling the gurl...i'd probaly say he still has feelings for her, just because thats how boys work!!!And the best thing you can do for your friend is be there for her anytime she needs it,and stick up to that,RUDE-HEADED-EX-BOYFRIEND of hers!!
Go with *GIRL POWER*!!
