Teen Advice

7 Apr

In high school, there is always that one cute boy with the dreamy eyes and killer body. You want him, but you feel he will never be interested in a girl like you. He’s the star football player, captain of the basketball team, or the student council president. And you’re just the quiet innocent girl who rarely gets acquainted with good looking boys. It gets frustrating observing him from afar without knowing him. When you first noticed the handsome young man, you came up with a plan, maybe even several. Plans to sweep him off his feet or plans to just say one word to him. When the timing seems perfect to just go up to him and say hi, your nerves get the best of you and you regret it later. For the rest of the school year you promise to talk to him, but the school months go by swiftly as you continue to procrastinate. You begin to doubt your confidence and decide to forget about the cute boy. “We’ll never be together.” Is what you say to yourself. Then you will find yourself in the same exact position the next year. I’ve been in this situation several times since my first year in middle school. There was always that one guy I thought was drop dead gorgeous. But I thought we could never be together. Thinking things like that lowers your self confidence and with no self confidence you can’t accomplish much of anything. You’ll start to believe that everyone else is better than you, you’ll feel awkward around strangers, and soon you will start to settle for any guy that is willing to be in a relationship with you. And sometimes just settling for a guy is not the wisest thing to do. Young hearts are fragile and can be damaged for a life time if broken by some guy you decided to settle for. You should keep your head up and move on when someone rejects you. Of course you will be hurt but don’t let the pain take over your heart, if you do, all that will be left is a broken heart in every relationship you have. With a broken heart and no confidence, you will never be able to get the guy of your dreams. Be strong and have the confidence it takes to be yourself and I promise the change will be visible to any guy you want.

    I feel like if you were meant to be with someone like that you’d naturally run into them and start talking. Instead of trying to win the heart of the guy who everyone’s after, would it make more sense to look around the people you do see? I mean, you probably don’t have must in common with him if you never talked to him aside from a mutual interest in his looks.

      I agree with you. But there are so many girls out there too scared to take a chance on the guy they think is out of their league. It wouldn’t hurt for them to give it a try. Then they won’t live the rest of their life wandering “what if”.
