Relationship Advice from Dr. TRuth
Dear Doctor TRuth,
I am a 16 year-old female who has had very high self esteem for all of her teenage life, but has had bad luck with boyfriends.
They have all been guilty of wanting me just for my body.
But there is this one particular guy that I have known for mmm...maybe 6 months.
He is the greatest but he seems to not want me as a girlfriend but I
really want to be with him.
I don't have any problems with looks because I am fine in that section
but we have gotten so close, I just got the urge to be with him.
He treats with me with respect and we actually TALK about things.
I think I'm kinda falling in love. But I've always said I will never fall in love,
but I think its happening. I can't help it.
Then there's this other guy who I've known for like 4 years and we're just as close and he
recently revealed that he has been in love me for like 3 of those years...the only thing....his sister is my best friend.
He's taking me to my prom, but I'm still im confused.
Should I keep flirting with the 1st friend and hope his heart connects to me or should
I pursue the 2nd??
Or should I just drop both????
Yes, keep flirting with the first friend. What can you lose?
As far as the second friend goes, you don't say
how you feel about him but I gather it is not what you
feel for Number "1."
I would continue with Number 2 on a friendship basis. Even if his sister is your
best friend, that really wouldn't matter if the two of you develop real feelings
for each other.
As far as I'm concerned, keep doing what you are doing. It seems
to be working for you.
On the other hand, the good news is that you want
more than you used to. Why had you decided not to fall in love to begin with?
There is nothing wrong with guys being attracted to physical beauty as long as
they can get past it eventually.
How lucky that your self-esteem is so good at your age, however I do detect a bit
of fear in letting someone really get close to you.
Maybe Number 1 picks up on your aloofness and is afraid to move on his
Try to give him a big hint and see if he picks up on it.
