  • Questions about the "first time"?

    so... my boyfriend and i are definitely going to do it sometime in the near future, and i just want to make sure im physically prepared.

    im already on birth control... but would it still make sense/ be necessary for him to still wear a condom? seeing as it'll be my first time and if i bleed, wouldn't it be bad for him to come in contact with my blood? (i don't have any sort of disease that spreads through blood but still)

    if anyone has any other helpful tips that would be awesome too(:

  • What to bring to a job interview?

    I have a job interview next week to work at an ice cream shop, and i'm not really sure what to bring. my mom says i should just bring my social security card in case i get hired? i'm only 16, so this is my first job and i'm not really sure how to prepare. i wasn't sure if i should create some sort of resume, or just come ready to talk. i'm sort of nervous and not sure what to expect at all.

    i think i'm going to wear a black skirt, white (long sleeve) blouse, and silver flats. it might be a little dressy for an ice-cream shop - considering the workers' uniforms - but i've heard its better to dress up than down. should this be okay?

    thanks:)

  • 16 and applying for my first job?

    i'm applying for my first job this year at a local cafe, probably just over the summer since my school year will be packed.

    i was applying online and it won't let me continue the application until i talk about my previous work experiences - i've only done volunteer work in the past, never anything paid. i think this is perfectly fine as i wasn't 16 last summer - the age i'm eligible to work. i'm not sure what to put in or else i can't continue my application. online it states that no work is necessary prior to working there.

    i'm also supposed to list 3 references - excluding family. it asks for their phone number, occupation, and name. when i put someone's name down, what does this mean for them? are they going to be contacted and asked to fill out some sort of recommendation form? i was thinking of people in terms of coaches, teachers, parents of children i babysit, etc.

    thanks!

  • Does this sound like an abusive relationship to you?

    I have a teacher at my school who I'm somewhat close to, and we were just sort of talking today about emotions and things. She said about a week ago she basically started bawling in class since sometimes you just really need to let it out. (this wasn't my class) I asked if she was okay, she said that she'd had some sort of big argument with her husband and that marriage is hard. Earlier in the day I'd noticed a bruise on her arm, about the size of a grape. I asked what happened and she sort of shrugged it off with a "probably the dog" sort of answer. So the bruise on her arm was brown, meaning it'd be about a week old and she got into a big fight with her husband a week ago...? I'm just worried it's somehow related. Do you think she's potentially in an abusive relationship?

    If not, what are some signs to look for in case it develops into one?

    Thanks. Could be a false alarm but I care about her and am just worried

  • Prom questions?

    My dress is royal blue and has a jeweled flower decoration on the strap/ top of dress, so I'm guessing I won't need a necklace? And I'm going with a date; we're going the corsage and boutonniere route. Should I wear a bracelet on my other wrist? I was planning on just doing simple stud earrings since I plan to have jeweled bobby pins in my hair.

    If anyone has any advice, that would be awesome! thanks

  • What does this song mean? (Lyrics included)?

    "Fire and dynamite" by Drew Holcomb and the neighbors. Really like it but not sure what it means:

    Some people talk to angels

    Some people talk to themselves

    Well I don't know who you're talking to

    But everything you say makes me want you

    Some people run in circles

    Some people run forever

    Well I don't know where you're running to

    But everywhere you go makes me want you

    You are a novel in a sea of magazines

    You make me nervous, you make my heart beat

    You are red in a sea of black and white

    You are fire you are dynamite

    Some people try to change the world

    Some people just stay alive

    Well don't know what you're living for

    But everything you do makes me want more

    You are a novel in a sea of magazines

    You make me nervous, you make my heart beat

    You are red in a sea of black and white

    You are fire you are dynamite

    You are a novel in a sea of magazines

    You make me nervous, you make my heart beat

    You are red in a sea of black and white

    You are fire you are dynamite

    You are fire you are dynamite

    You are fire you are dynamite

  • I was out driving, and...?

    I was coming off the highway around 8:30 at night and this guy cut in behind me and i noticed he was a little close to me, so i sped up a little to try to give him space. he then flashes his brights a couple times and i'm blinded so i just floor it so he won't hit me, by now i'm going about 20mph over. there's an intersection but the light is red so i peel right and keep driving, hoping to get rid of him. he follows me and then we get stopped at another intersection and he's really close to my car. i move forward and go the limit, he speeds around me making all sorts of gestures i don't want to think about. he's ahead of me by the next intersection and in the lane i'd wanted to be in, so i end up stopped right next to him. he starts being creepy again, so i just run the light since nobody is coming. i end up having to go on a state route for like 10 miles to avoid going the same way as him.

    anyhow, i'm shaken up but alright. i haven't had my driver's license for long now, can someone explain to me what happened? (i dont want to tell my parents about this). and is there anything i could do to avoid this or handle it differently? thanks

  • I get butterflies in my stomach...?

    i have this teacher at my high school who I am somewhat close too. she's like twice my age but for some reason we just get along really well and can tell each other a lot of things - i'm sure we both know more than we want to about each other yet somehow we still manage to talk for awhile after school at least once a week. (i don't have her for class anymore, but we've kept in contact). i really look up to her and think she's an amazing person. her advice means a lot to me and whenever something happens i'm more inclined to tell her than my mother.

    the weird thing i've noticed is that whenever we hug, i get butterflies in my stomach and sometimes freeze up. i don't understand this because i know that while i really like spending time with her, i am in NO way sexually attracted to her, so this doesn't make sense! why else would i get butterflies in my stomach?

    please help. i'm just really confused and don't want this to affect my relationship with her or for her to think i'm just really weird

  • parents want me to run track but i think it's a really bad idea?

    ive run indoor/outdoor track basically the whole time in high school with cross country in the fall. i took off in the winter to join club swimming, which i think is a much better sport for me as it makes me feel happy and complete.

    the reason i don't want to do track is because of the stress it causes me. some of it's from the coaches, the competition, etc. there's also a lot of pressure to drop times and all of the girls around me on my team obsess about food. somewhere in there i developed an eating disorder last track season just due to all the stress and pressure around me for a curvy girl to make her body into something it shouldn't be. i don't have any issue running cross country again, but track is just full of bad memories. i'm doing a lot better and think i'm almost recovered from my ED but just think i might cave again, plus i don't even necessarily LIKE running track. (im happy to run for fun, though. and there was none of this garbage with cross country).

    i'd told my parents that running was basically my only outlet for my stress last year when i was caught up in the ED, but i think the truth was i only kept pushing myself to burn calories and lose weight and couldn't stand the idea of not running. my track/ XC coach really likes me and doesn't know about the ED, so i don't want him to dislike me or think i'm lying about something so serious. it's still something i struggle with sometimes but i really healed myself physically and mentally when i was swimming so i just don't want to undo all of that.

    My dad is a huge running fanatic, and i think this would be a big disappointment to both him and my coach if i didn't run. should i tell my parents that i don't want to run? or just try to suck it up until cross country rolls around? i'm sort of running out of time to decide what to do, and i'm really confused.

  • Boob question: is this normal?

    I got my period when I was 13 (almost 14) and wore a 32A in bras. I wasn't curvy anywhere on my body, and my hips were practically the same size as my waist. Now I'm a junior in high school and wear a 32F... I've gained like 25 pounds (but also grown 2 inches) except most of it's muscle, which I can tell since my stomach is still pretty flat.

    I thought they were done growing - I'd been a 32E for about a year - but got measured again the other day and found out i've gone up a size again. I'm sort of frustrated since it's hard to find cute bras/ swimwear in my size since my back is so petite, and if I go up another cup size i won't be able to shop at VS, which is practically the only lingerie store in my area. my mom only wears a 34A and nobody in my dad's family is above a C, so i feel like this isn't normal. especially since i've heard you should only grow another 1 - 2 cup sizes after you start your period?

    so is this normal? or something I should be worried about?

  • Is there any way to convince someone that she's beautiful?

    My older cousin is probably one of the most gorgeous people I know, inside and out. She's got a lot going for her and is a pretty happy person, but doesn't think she's beautiful, or even pretty. It makes me really sad to know that someone I love so much (and have known forever) just doesn't think very highly of herself. I want her to know that she IS beautiful. Is there anything I can do (or say) to help her realize that she is?

  • I need to ask someone for a hug..?

    i'm going through a lot of stress right now and i always like hugs, they seem to help me. best hug i've ever gotten was probably from my club volleyball coach when i literally fell apart during practice one day and broke down and started crying. it was probably the best hug i'd ever had, but is it weird to ask her for one? cause i really need one right now but don't want to seem greedy. we joke around some and are on good terms but i think i've only hugged her like once. how do i go about this...?

    (i guess this question sort of speaks for people in general i know well but don't hug on a regular basis. i love to give hugs but i don't normally make the initiative until it's more of a regular thing.) so how would i go about doing this to someone i know will hug me back but is someone i've never really hugged?

  • I just want to find a sports bra that fits right?!?

    I really love sports bras that are racer-back and seamless - they're comfortable and yet supportive enough to work out in. i don't like the underwire bras as much seeing as i'm the type of person more likely to wear athletic clothing, and i find that type of bra annoying - i always seem to have to readjust some part of it!

    so... i wear a 30DDD or 32DD depending on the brand - i usually end up going with the 32 as a 30 is so hard to find. basically my boobs arent ENORMOUS, they're just slightly above average. my ribs are quite tiny, so when i find a sports bra i like ...usually either the band fits and my boobs spill out OR the bra is big enough to "fit" everything but it's so big that it rides up. i've tried target and avia. just looking for a normal sports bra (with sizes like small, medium, large, etc).

    does anyone have any advice? thanks :)

  • Writing a talk for school?

    I'm doing this speech sometime in the next couple of months and it's a bigger deal so I have to start preparing in advance; I've already written out my rough draft. One of the things that's a part of the talk if you need someone to "introduce" you to the audience before you start speaking. I already have an adult in mind at my high school, but I'm not sure how to go about asking her. I don't know how far in advance I should ask her, or how I should let her know she's allowed to say no. I'm normally a pretty casual person but I don't know how formal I'll need to be when I ask her. (If this helps, our school calls them chapel talks).

    If anyone has any advice, that'd be great!

  • question about ED recovery/ society?

    i'm pretty short (like 5'3 or so) but pretty curvy, and i guess it shows more since i'm smaller. i wear a 30DDD bra but my waist isn't that tiny (like 28 inches maybe) and my hips don't go out a TON but i have a lot of curve through my thighs and butt. i'm also a high school athlete so i have a pretty toned body as well.

    i'm currently in treatment for an eating disorder, so i guess the curve and muscle has really only shown up in the past year or so since my body has been at a healthy weight and had a chance to "catch up" to how it's supposed to look. but the thing is, people never fail to make comments about my butt!! my therapist says that it's great i've got this body type, my extended family seems to all think it's okay for them to smack it (they all have straight body types), some guys from my school looked a little longer at my back than they should've yesterday when i wore leggings to run in, and the other day my friend told me i now had the perfect body to take clubbing... (and no, i'm not purposely trying to flaunt my curve/muscle. i can't even really hide it wearing sweatpants and a hoodie).

    like, i understand that society has an obsession over certain body types. (though I didn't get this type of attention when i was sickly thin). would you think that people are noticing and saying these things to me because i look so much more healthy than i used to, or because that's just how people react to that type of thing?
