Teenage Problems/Off limits


So here's the thing. I'm a girl. Me and my friends were having a Skype group chat and someone added this guy. Since then me and him have been talking a lot. I told some girls about it and one girl said he was off limits, because apparently they dated. So I asked him and he said that they didn't. Some time ago he commented on my picture saying that I'm hot, I said I'll take it as a compliment, and then the friend called him an a$$. Later she messages me to stop and tells me again that he's off limits. I asked her is it because they 'dated' or because she likes him. She didn't get the message yet. Tomorrow I'm seeing her at school so what should I do? And should I tell the guy? She's one of my good friends, but I really like this guy. I know this is typical teenage drama, but I'd appreciate advice.

Hi there,

That is a tough position to be in. I have always felt that if you like somebody, it shouldn't matter if your friend has dated them. Go for it. Who are they to say who you can and cant date? If they are a true, supportive friend, they will back you up and not mind it.

Hope this helps.

I can answer virtually any questions dealing with teen issues. As a teen myself, I have over come so many obstacles in my life to get to where I am today, a happy and successful place. I am 17 with my own business, a happy long lasting relationship, and a past that got me hear. I want to help other teens since I know what it is like to be one with problems.


Being a teenager helps. But other than that, I had many issues in school with bullying, both being the bully and the one being bullied, drugs, relationships, and being involved with the wrong people. It took many years but I am now in the best place I have ever been.

High school.
