...oh yea...and is it evil to advise a guy friend (best friend...snogged him before...yaddah, yaddah...) not to go out with a girl he likes EVEN IF I KNOW SHE THINKS SHE LIKES HIM if I can't stand the girl in question?

so there is this clique at my school, and they're really mean, so my friend and I went on one of theire "members" (they call themselves the pretty committee--ugh) website--some not so nice stuff about how they are mean to people and stuff...well they found out and totally confronted my friend on friday and now I am really scared...I hate being in fights...we probably went too far but something had to be said...I would see the school counselor but I am too nervous...what should I do?

I'm in a long-term relationship with a guy I want to spend a long time with, but I have this really strong connection with another boy. Besides my boyfriend, he’s probably my best friend – we hang out together quite a bit, and I do harbor a long-standing crush on him. However, there’s no chance of anything happening, as he’s not attracted to women. I don't want to hurt my boyfriend's feelings (who is starting to get rather jealous/resentful), but I don't want to stop my relationship with this other guy. What should I do?

 
At 3:54 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I’ve liked this guy for several months now. We get along wonderfully – the only problem is that a close friend of mine also likes him… a lot. I haven’t told her about my feelings for him. Would I be a terrible person to date this guy, or to act on my feelings? I really want to go after him (I think we’d be a perfect match), but I don’t want to seem disingenuous, or worse, ruin a friendship. Help!

Hi Mr. Beaver,
I met a guy at a party a few weeks ago. We were pretty into each other at a party, so he emailed me later to see if we could get together again. We went out, but it wasn't the same as the first night. It was much more awkward, possibly because he was more sober. We are very different people, however I think it could work but I'm not sure. I'm also wary of leading him on if I decide we are just too different. What to do?

To go for it or not.

Dear Beaver:

While I would love to have a normal relationship with someone my own age, I find myself drawn to professors. It seems that every semester, I end up infatuated with a different instructor.

Currently, I have eyes for one of my humanities professors. I can't get over his sharp wit, brilliant mind, and worldly sophistication. I've been going to office hours every week, and I'm definitely getting interested vibes from him. Last week, after a lengthy session in office hours, he even invited me out for coffee to continue our conversation.

I know that this situation may sound bizarre, but I find guys my age to be awkward and immature. Should I pursue my current (more mature) love interest, or should I settle for guys my own age?

I've had a crush on this guy for nearly a year now, but have never been able to work up the courage to actually ask him out. Thing is, the situation is changing--and I'll probably never see him again. I realize that the smart thing to do in this case is to get over him, but like I said, I've had a crush on him for a long time, so that's sort of hard to do. What should I do? How do I get over him?

hi mr beaver~ i'd like to ask... how do you know if a guy likes (loves) you? i'm 20+, single & i never had a boyfriend. i've had a lot of friendly relationships with guys and i think they all treated me the same, a baby/childish figure. now i have a workmate whom i have special feelings. this all started when i noticed him paying special attention on me, doing things my other guy-friends wouldn't normally do. what does it mean? or should i ask him (although this would feel so awkward on my part)? :( help. i don't want to assume things but that is just so inevitable. i end up not being able to function properly because of paranoia. :(

Hi Beavers,

I need advice on how to handle a situation with my friend. She's in a very serious relationship with a guy who I think is a little too intense. She's not doing well in school right now and has lost touch with her other friends because she spends all her time with him. I had started to think he was an ok guy, because she says he is really supportive of her, but now it seems like he's completely taking charge of her life. It might not be any of my business, but how can I tell her that I don't think she should be in such a serious relationship?

Dear Mr. Beaver,
My boyfriend never seems to have time for me. When we do have time to hang out, he expects me to come up with a plan. I like it when a guy takes charge, but all he ever wants to do is play Star Wars games online (I wish I were making that up). Is there anything I can do to get him to make a decision for once, or is this a pretty typical MIT boy thing?
Thanks,
Lonely Leia

So im a 3rd year university student and on the VERY last day of the school year i meet the roomate of my roomies boyfriend and we really really hit it off, meaning we stayed up all night talking. The next day we all moved out for the summer to go home, unfortunetly this summer he is actually across the country. He is on the BC/AB border logging. He added me to MSN to keep in touch, the thing is hes only been on once but we talked for a couple hours. So my question is....would it be weird to email him? And what should I say? When we last talked he hinted that he was dissapointed that he meet me on that last day of school, and that he was really happy to finally get to chat. I think about him a lot cause its been along time since Ive clicked with a guy so well....Im just wondering if it would be smarter to just leave things as it is.
Thanks,

Hi! I have this one friend who has really low self esteem. She doesn't think guys are interested in her bc she is slightly overwieght and tall for a girl and this makes her feel akward when she's around guys. Whenever we go out to clubs or bars i usally end up talking to most of the guys bc she's more intimidated and so that just makes her feel worse about herself. It also doesn't help that the one guy she had a major crush on ended up hitting on me when he was really drunk. I passed it off as him being really drunk but i know it really hurt her and it hurt her already low self esteem even more. What can i do to help raise her confidence?

I have been dating this guy exclusively for about 2 months. We work together in a bar and he is a great guy and I honestly know he would not cheat on me. He is very flirty at work and it has been bothering me almost every time we work together and I have been getting jealous and mad at him. It's hypocritical b/c I flirt w/ my customers also, but I've never had a flirty boyfriend before. It seems like I get upset every few days. He always tells me that it is nothing and that he likes only me. We both agreed that I have to stop getting jealous, but I am wondering if it is too late because he might not look at me the same since I have gotten so jealous already. Is this a lost cause or is it something that we can get over?

I have been with the same guy for six years and we live together. He's my best friend and I love him to death. Lately I've been hanging out with another guy who my boyfriend has never met. I have so much fun with this new guy and definitely think I am crushing on him. We innocently flirt all the time, and he is single, but he knows I have a boyfriend and would never try anything. I think about this guy ALL the time. Lately I've been having 2nd thoughts about my relationship with my boyfriend.. I don't know if it's because of this new guy or if my feelings toward my bf are changing. I am really confused and don't know what to do...

Hey i have a question.. I am in love with this guy. He is 3 years younger to me. We have kissed and have shared a lot of time together since past 2 months. Whenever i share my feelings with him, he says he cant commit to me as he had this previous broken relationship and he is not out of that. But he shares, laughs, cries, spends so much money and time on me. I dont know how he really feels.. and what do i do? Do u think i am barking at the wrong bush?

So I like this girl and she knows that I like her. 5 months ago she told me she just wanted to be friends for now and I told her that was fine. Another guy also likes her and she told me that the guy thought they were gonna hook up but she didn't want to disappoint him. They aren't going out, but she might like him and I'm not too sure about it. They hang out a lot and I get kind of jealous about it. I have nothing against the guy that also likes her but I think if I tell her he is making me jealous then she will be mad at me. I just want to be able to cope with her possibly liking this other guy.
