    So my daughter wants to go on holiday with her best friends to Los Angeles in the summer. We live in the UK so it would be a long plane ride. She and her best friend would be going alone but they are very trustworthy. Her best friend’s family will meet them when they get off the plane and she would be staying with them for a week. I’m debating whether to let her go and I’m just wondering if you would let your 15 year old daughter go on holiday with her best friend.

    I recently ended a friendship with this guy because he was getting too clingy. We've talked about it for a couple times and he still act the same, so I finally got fed up. We used to work together but he got fired for lying about something about his parents, and is currently looking for jobs. He has asked me to be his reference and I said yes unwillingly. I really don't want to do it because I feel like it would be his way of still keeping contact with me. I have blocked his number, only way is email me and call my work phone. I really don't want to have anything to do with him anymore but I also want him to be able to get a job. I feel really bad if I said no to that one request. Should I not have done that?

    I have never been the type to go out and party or even just go out with friends, I became very mature for my age very young (I started being mature at 8 y/o) if I do go out it is very rare and very uncomfortable for me and its only been sleep overs with family members and that's it, I dont have friends. But when people ask me why I don't go out I just say I don't like to but then they kind of make fun of me about it and call me names, I dont think they mean to hurt my feeling but they do and it makes me not wanna go out even more! Idk some people make me feel very uncomfy and I have to really know you before I'm am comfy, I am also homeschooled so I don't get vert much interaction and I really like that, but my mom feels like she has fails as a mother because I'm not social I wish she could see that being alone makes me happy. I tell her that I find partying gross and disturbing but she doesn't understand. Anyways what can I say to people when they start making fun of me or just push me around (Ps I'm a 14 y/o girl and I know this is probably makes me weird but I promise I'm not this nerdy weird kid) also don't say I'm boring because I'm not I think I'm fun if I really know you though and can be myself around you. Any advice about coming out of my "shell"

  • How would you feel if someone who you've blocked on Facebook sends you this message through another account?

    Best answer: Maybe they've changed. Maybe they're going through a step or rehab program. Maybe they're looking back at their life and wondering why they didn't keep in contact with wonderful people they used to care for.

    My reaction would likely to tied to how much I cared!

  • Should I put "Miss" before my friend's name. She's 15. And I'm sending her a package. Is it a cool idea or should I just put her name?

    Best answer: "Miss" is the proper title for an unmarried woman. "Ms." is also acceptable for an adult woman who chooses to use it, or whose marital status you don't know. It's a matter of personal preference. It won't hurt anyone whether you use it or not. It's not a formal piece of mail so... show more

    It's a matter of personal preference. It won't hurt anyone whether you use it or not. It's not a formal piece of mail so there's no "need" to use it, but go ahead and use it if you wish.

  • Is it ok to be friends?

    Best answer: Nothing wrong with it but if 16-18 year olds are your ONLY friends, then perhaps you are immature? Perhaps you can't handle older women who you may see as rivals to your masculinity. Just a thought.

    And you're over 18... not sure why they'd have such a fit, if they even did?

  • Estranged friend still holding a grudge towards me and refused to give it another chance?

    Best answer: It sounds as though she has little interest in renewing your friendship. I would perhaps let it go and move on.

    I'm 23, in college, and always hang with the same people. Two of my friends are roommates and they basically let friends hang at their place whenever. Recently, there's been this quiet girl who hangs with the crew but doesn't talk to anyone, just looks at her phone and seems isolated. (I'll call her Ruby.) According to my friends she comes over a lot because her family life is rough, and she never causes trouble so they don't mind. After a couple weeks of seeing her around, smiling at her, she approached me one night. It was late and people were crashing in various rooms at my friend's house. Without saying a word, Ruby took my hand and led me down to the basement, and we started making out. Didn't know why, but decided not to question it. We ended up having sex and spending the night on the couch downstairs. We didn't talk to each other, or use protection. ( I've had a vasectomy, but she doesn't know that) When I woke up she was getting dressed. (I think the basement is almost like her makeshift bedroom at their house.) Since then, well, it's happened a few more times. She's just as quiet and by herself as ever, but when the party winds down she comes up to me and leads me downstairs and we sleep together. We never speak, either, or use condoms. Like I'm not complaining, but I just don't get it. My friends say she's super shy around guys. What's her deal though? How can I figure this out? I don't really know how to talk to her but why has she been doing this?

    Best answer: Find a club or group or evening class that interests you so that you'll meet people with similar tastes, etc. Drama? Cookery? Jazz?

    To be liked, generally, it helps to be more interestED than interestING. Listening is good for making friends: ask people questions about themselves and their opinions and listen to them without interruption, except for little comments that demonstrate that you're REALLY listening. It shows you are taking them seriously, as in respect and acceptance. Don't sit there thinking about what you will say, because that shows more interest in yourself than them. Little pauses demonstrate that you are thinking about what they have said anyway. You can ask them how they felt about what they have just told you, or other specific questions to show you have been listening and taking them seriously. Be open minded and try not to disagree with people. For example, if they like a band you hate, ask what it is they like about them, best track, etc. (avoid the word, “why” as it can sound challenging). You can always say you don't listen to them much but you will now or something. Asking for advice is also good. Genuinely, of course, & don't overdo it. Ditto information – we feel pleased to tell someone something interesting they did not know, such as what’s on in town, latest sports score, etc., so by showing interest in their opinion, knowledge, etc. you’ll get some good feelings from them. Smiling is a good sign of acceptance. A lot of eye contact can also be good. Remember, if you want to have a friend, you have to BE a friend, and the best way to impress someone is to be impressed by them! One thing you can do is always to ensure you have a straight back: sit, stand and walk tall (hips forward) and take reasonably long, confident strides when you walk: this has the “reverse psychology” effect of helping us to feel more confident. Once we have self respect and a sense of self worth, we tend to find that other people respect us more too.

    Good Luck!

    I am a 16 year old girl with horribleeee social anxiety. It got so bad to the point where I had to leave public school and be homed schooled. Unfortunately, I had a bad reputation at my old school and everyone thinks I'm a creep. I have to study for the SAT this summer and this is the only summer school my parents can afford. I'm really scared because I heard that there will be people from my old school and I even saw 2 girls who hate my guts. . Also I can't make friends at all and everyone that I meet hates me. I'm not ugly and I don't have bad hygiene. I'm just very socially awkward :( I don't want to be bullied or ostracized. However I have to study for the SAT because I'm not satisfied with my score. What do I do???

    My friend is 19 and i'm 35. I know that's a big gap, but I don't care about age. I have few friends, so I am not superficial about age. My friend is traveling Europe for 4 months, and before leaving he said I was welcome to join for a bit. He talked to me about going for the last month, and we were planning it out. I was booking flights and hotels. I was only going for 2 weeks to join him and said I would go to help him in the expensive countries. I thought he really wanted me there, as he originally suggested I come, and told me I was welcome. Then Suddenly it started feeling like he was trying to avoid having me come. I finally asked him what the problem was and he said that it was "kind of weird that I would want to go thousands of miles away to hang out with a 19yr old". That offended me lots. I don't have many friends and I really thought I was wanted. Now suddenly it is weird? I told him "I understand and, and i'm not angry." But honestly I am beyond pissed off. I'm pissed because he suggested I go, and talked all about me going, and once I put the money on the table, suddenly I am old and it is not normal. Like he was trying to be nice but never expected I would do it. What do I do? I don't want to lose a friend, but i'm so angry that I really am starting to think I might. I've always given more to him then anyone. Also if we stay friends how do I end this age gap talk so I never hear of it again? Please help, I don't want to lose my friend.

  • My friend wants to travel to Iraq to see where her brother died 14 years ago. Urgent advice needed?!?

    Best answer: Do NOT let her go alone. There are strict rules and one is that a woman has to not only be completely covered, but she also has to have a chaperone. Has to be a male too. She could be arrested just for that alone, even if she is completely covered. Sharia law is extremely strict and they do NOT play around. There... show more
    Best answer: Do NOT let her go alone. There are strict rules and one is that a woman has to not only be completely covered, but she also has to have a chaperone. Has to be a male too. She could be arrested just for that alone, even if she is completely covered. Sharia law is extremely strict and they do NOT play around. There are planes that go there but she will have to be completely covered by the time they land, even in the airports women are expected to follow the laws. Going to Iraq is not like traveling to Paris or Australia. She needs to do a ton of research if she's actually serious about it. She also is not allowed to speak to a male or even look at him unless they address her. So her chaperone, is the one that has to check into the hotels, call for cabs, and basically do all the leg work. I'm honestly not trolling, this is their customs and you have to abide by their laws and customs in other countries. Maybe if she saw how really strict it is, it might change her mind.
