@ Anonymous- Well..if he doesn't already like you you shouldn't make him like you. Don't act different for a guy. He should like you for you!

PurpleRose, I agree. I want to help and I know Jemma does. Fire those questions I'm ready!

@Anonymus on Septmember 28th

If he doesn't like you yet, try to talk to him. The question game always bring people closer together! The question game is when each of you take turns asking questions about each other. For example:
Person 1: What's your favorite color?
Person 2: Blue. What's your favorite food?
Person 1: Pasta. What's your favorite sport?
Person 2: Basketball.
You keep going like that. It seems boring, but add some silly questions in there to show him your humorous side!
What NOT to do is change yourself for a guy. A guy should like you for you! Your special, and if he doesn't see that, then he's missing out! If this crush doesn't work out, try to stay friends. And besides, there are plenty of fish in the sea!
Hope I helped! :)

@anonymous who has an irregular period:
It's totally normal for you to have an irregular period the first year or two of having it! However, if it's, like, REALLY irregular (like my sister didn't have her period for 9 months straight once!), then you should go see the doctor. But there's mostly likely nothing wrong, no need to worry.

@ SkyDolphin16- Maybe now you should just let him know that you're there for him. Make him a card. Visit his mom if you can. Or bake something for him. Maybe later on you'll be together but right now he just needs somebody to lean on. And that can be you!

@Anonymous on October 2nd
That's totally okay. That is what's supposed to happen when you get your first period. :)

You should definitely wait. If his mom's in the hospital (I'm so sorry!) you should help him get through it. Talk to him, let him know you're there, and be kind. That would be the best thing to do right now! :)

I'm so sorry! I know how rough that can be. I will pray for your BFF's sister and your aunt. God bless you guys! :)

I have nothing to add because KewlKatKitty said what I would! :)

Haha thanks! You also put what I would! I really like giving advice but sometimes I go overboard on the questions! I wish I can meet you in real life! You're awesome! We should so make an Advice Girls team together! LOL!!! :)

@anonymous october 2 with an irregular period
Your period just started so its going to be a bit the first year or so but usually once you have your period for a long time it usually comes once a month for about a week

October 8, 2013 at 4:04 PM  
Anonymous PurpleRose said...

When guys ask that, it usually means he likes you. Guys do that to make sure you like him back. It happens most of the time, but not all of the time. But don't be too sure, just examine his actions when talking to you. If your sure, you can ask a friend to ask him , ask yourself, or wait for him to tell you!

Hope I helped!

Gabi231- huh I haven't heard the Aunt Flo thing yet odd anyway it sounds like you could get your period anytime between now or about another year or less. Sometimes it takes a while for some people to get theirs. I got mine b4 the summer of 6th grade. My advice don't worry too much. Itll probably come when you least expect it.

Hey y'all! I'm not dead lol! I've just been wayyyyy busy cuz this is my first year of high school and its crazy. And someone always answers questions the way I would before I can so I don't feel a need to comment. But I'll try and get on and answer more questions when I can. Btw @TrueMU I can't believe someone remembers me! I didn't think anyone would remember little old me :) oh one more question for you guys. But only if you wanna help..... Anyway there's this guy at my youth group (he's a sophomore one year age difference) and he also goes to the same biology class I do (we're both homeschooled) and I really, really like him. He's super nice to me and protects me when other guys at youth group are around. We also text each other almost every night until 11 or midnight. But he's the guitarist at our youth group and I'm sure there's other girls that like him. So do you think he likes me?? And if he does why does he like me over all the other girls there?? Thanks for your help even though I should be the one helping you guys since I'm older lol!
