Dear Juliet, My best friend seems to have it all. I compare her to me every second of every day. I parade my superiority, but, in all reality, I’m about as insecure as the next girl…and it turns out the next girl is REALLY insecure. It’s almost like everything is better when she isn’t around. That’s not how things should be. This isn’t a friendship…not on my side.I just want a best friend that won’t make me feel mediocre…or inferior in any way. I just want to feel good..

Dear Anonymous,

 A best friend is always supposed to be there for you and is usually the person you go to when you have problems. Does your friend know how you feel? Is she doing something that makes you feel this way? If she is, you should let her know. If you are her best friend, she will try to change her ways. Unfortunately, everyone does not stay the same and friends change from time to time. If you talk to her and you continue to feel insecure and inferior in any way, it may be a good idea to start meeting other people. This does not mean to stop talking to your best friend. It just means to make new friends and still keep in touch with your best friend. Instead of comparing yourself to your best friend, try thinking of what makes you unique and beautiful. No one should feel inferior to anyone. We are all equal and should all be treated the same. I hope everything works out. Write back to us any time! Good Luck and Thank you for submitting.

   Love, Juliet.

Dear Juliet, One of my best guy friends said he liked me and asked me out…I was unable to say no to him because I wasn’t sure how I felt about him. So now we’re in a relationship…but my feelings for him are that of friendship only…I don’t know what to do.
Dear Anonymous, 

Often people mistaken their feelings of fondness for a friend as romantic feelings. It’s hard to distinguish these types of feelings, but as you now know - what you felt for your best friend actually isn’t what you had originally thought. You probably already know what the best thing, and the right thing to do is, which is letting him know your honest feelings about him. As his best friend, he would want you to tell him the truth. The earlier in the game, the better. In the way that you would want your partner to love you as much as you love him, the same should apply for him. Let him off slowly. It won’t be easy, and there may be consequences, but good luck anyways!

Love, Juliet

For a while now I have been having feelings for someone that maybe I shouldn'nt because he's a bit older, nothing ever happened between us 'romantically', but this may really sound stupid but i think he 'felt' the same way too. anway, he left and i feel quite down about it. I wouldnt want to confront him about it, or even talk to my friends because to be honest it just all seems a bit pathetic/silly. please help me, what do i do?

Hey there,

How much older was he? Because age is really not a very big deal, unless of course it’s a ridiculous difference. So if it’s only a year or 2, I wouldn’t worry too much about that :)

But anyways, were you guys just friends? I don’t really know what you mean when you say that he left, did you guys just stop hanging out? And it doesn’t sound stupid at all!

You are not pathetic for liking someone, especially if you think he might like you back! But honestly, I do think that maybe you should try to talk to him, maybe not about that right now, since like you said you don’t know for sure that he likes you back, but you think there’s a possibility. So I think that you should just start talking to him, try to hang out more, and eventually start being more flirty towards him and try to pay attention to how he reacts. If he responds well to it, definitely keep going!

And don’t feel bad about talking to your friends about anything, if they truly are your friends they will respect you and listen to what’s going on in your life, that’s why they’re there! :) But, if you aren’t comfortable, I’m always here!

To sum up, just don’t give up if you think this boy would be worth your time, and especially if you think that there might be a connection. Just try to be brave and give it a shot. Don’t be afraid to take risks, it could all be worth it in the end :)

I really hope I helped, if I messed up or didn’t understand what you were asking please let me know and I’ll fix it! :)

Good luck!

Love, Juliet <3

dear juliet, i really like this boy that goes to my school. we talk and flirt in every class we are together in, and i just feel so comfortable and happy when i am around him. The feeling is mutual. he is so touchy with me and we talk about everything! the problem is is that we are not really in the same friend group. i really like him but i don't know if he likes me.. what do i do?

If you want to know how he feels about you, I suggest you ask him. Just go for it! :)

Real love can only be determined through struggles, trials, tribulations, and if you can make it out of that and still feel that same way for that person, man that’s real love and shit.

Dear Juliet,
There's this guy that I can't get out of my head & he's a hick kind of, & im a city girl. But I recently moved & he was the first guy to go out on a date with me once I got to my new school. He keeps talking to me on Skype sometimes but he'll give me like one worded answers & sometimes more then that. But it's never anything other than flirting which drives me absolutly insane because I have so much more that I want to talk about then that. I like him alot but I don't want to get my heart broken which is why I never talk to him first. He always starts the conversation first. Please write back to me A.S.A.P. because I am just so confused & I hate this.

All I’m saying is, go for it. The heart wants what the heart wants! (: Haha. Are you willing to take the risk? Is it worth it? Since you two went on a date, don’t you think that means something? I mean, it should. So you like him, but you don’t know if he likes you back? Weeeell. You should either wait for something big to happen, or like i said, take a risk and ask him who he likes. Good luck though. (:

Love,

Juliet.

So there's this guy; I THINK we're talking. Whenever I'm around he's always clinging onto me; holding my hand, giving me hugs, sitting on my lap, tickling me and whatnot. We don't exactly live near each other so we don't see each other around often. When I'm not around him it feels like he isn't interested in me, we don't text much and a lot of times he's the one that doesn't text back.

So outside of our meetups, I feel like we're strictly friends, but when we're physically together I almost feel like we're a couple. What do I do?

Dear Anon,

Now that’s a problem right there. I could relate to it, cause that’s kind of how me and my ex were. Whenever we were physically together, we were the happiest couple ever. But when we were apart and we were just texting, it wasn’t really as fun. It was just.. Ugh. Not cool. Haha. But anyways. Guys are really hard to understand sometimes. They’re hard to figure out. Lol obviously. Guys will be guys! I suggest you try talking to him. Tell him what’s been bothering you. I mean, if you two are close and comfortable enough you should just do so. Just be blunt about it. Better than keeping it all inside right? Just let it all out!

Dear Juliet,
I'm inlove..
but he Lives in California & I Live in Florida.. :(
Do You think Long Distance Will Work?
He's dedicated, but im afraid, we'll never ever see each other.
It breaks me down ):

Dear Anon,

Love has no distance. Just have hope yourselves, and have trust in each other. “We’ll never ever see each other”? Well you gotta believe sweetie. All you gotta do is have hope, and you’ll get there. Im sure you two will see each other. Well at least he’s dedicated, right? You should be too! Don’t be afraid. I understand where you’re coming from though, but no. Don’t be afraid. You two will make it. Just as long as you trust each other! BE FAITHFUL, AND DON’T CHEAT. Cause doing so, would pretty much end things on a bad note. And you wouldn’t really want that. Good luck you two. (:

Love, 

Juliet.
