Teen Advice: Friend Problems

Teenagers these days mature so fast that their most problem is about friends. And maybe you have asked yourself "What do really friends are for?",  "Who are my true friends?" or "What is a friend?". I have here some questions to ask you in order to know what are they to you.

1. Do they open most to you? Seriously, if they open most to you it just means that they trust you and they know you are true to them. Don't ever gossip a little about his or her problem to anyone if she or he tell not to. It may sound absurd, but it is the right thing to do.

2. Do they want you to go with them every time they hang out? If they want you to go with them, think of it. Its either they want you to get lost or they just want you to be with them. Think before you said yes because maybe they would go on a party with you because they want you to get ashamed or they want to get proud of you.

3. Are you best friends? Okay, some friends are like 'Do you want me to be your best friend?' and you know to your self if you want him/her or not. If you said yes probably he/she would rejoice, but if you said no just make sure that you would explain some kind of things why 'no' is your answer. But some kind of friends are like 'Are we best friends now?' and it just make sense to ask to your self 'Is he really true to me?' and only you are capable of giving him a chance. Appreciate the way they see you as a best friend.

4. Do they often touch you? Guys listen, there are kind of friends who are touchy and also there are kind of friends who are not touchy. If you're a girl and you have a guy friend and he's touching you, it is better to stay away from him or make him realize that you're a girl and he's a guy and touching doesn't require in being friends. But, if you are a girl and you also have a girl friend (a friend that is a girl) and she's touchy, it's either she's a lesbian or its her nature. And only you can know what she really is, or course if she's a lesbian stay away from her or also make her realize that you don't like a lesbian friend or either you want. Hugs are probably natural to do on friends, but don't let him or her kiss you because he sees you different.

  4. I guess it depends on your gut feel if you're best friends with someone. My friends and I, we never asked ourselves if we could be best friends. It just came out naturally. We're still going strong after 12 years. :)

  6. Finding true friends during teenage years is not easy. It is important for everyone to learn whether or not their prospective friends is going to be a good or bad influence.

  7. This is something worth noting since I have a 15 yr old girl who is suddenly transplanted to a co-ed school. So far, she tells me stuff but I hope it doesn't reach a point where I need to ask about touchy-feely folks around her.

  8. I want to be prepared when my boys become teenagers, I want them to feel that I am their best friend and that they always open up to me. I know it will not be easy for them, so hopefully, they won't "go far" from me... in a way.

  11. As a parent, I wanted my daughter to be open with me. I am friendly with my mother and I think I can share some of my secrets with her, especially when my father was strict to us that time. It's nice to know that a child can be open to at least one of her parents without the fear of being reprimanded.
