Teenage Problems/Crushes


Hi doc, I'm in a tight squeeze. I have a crush on my sister's soon-to-be brother-in-law. Let's call him Kevin Only he is 21 and I'm 14. Help, I don't know what to do, my mom isn't much help. The wedding is next month and since we're both in the wedding, we walk down the aisle together. I honestly don't look my age, I am fully developed and I have big boobs for a 14 year old. Kevin and I are friends on Facebook, but the last time I saw him was over a year ago and I didn't say 3 words to him. Could it be possible that he remembers me? Also, I saw his twitter and he tweets a lot about drinking, getting high, women and a lot swearing and sexually suggestive things. And on his Facebook, there are some pictures that if you saw, you would think he was gay if it wasn't for the fact that I knew he had a girlfriend. If I tell my sister, she'll laugh and call me a crazy psychopathic obsessed loser and if I try to talk about it to my mom, I might die of embarrassment. Please get back to me as soon as you can, the wedding is in 28 days :(

Hi Celeste,
Thank you for writing to me. You should not be a facebook friend to "Kevin". He is too old for you and hopefully too experienced.  The things in which you described on his facebook page, he is not thinking about you, especially in a good, wholesome way.  Continue to treat him in the respectful manner in which your mother raised you. You are in the wedding and your sister is counting on you.

You will have a lot of crushes in your growing experiences. One day you will look back and wonder what you were thinking. As you stated, it is only a crush. You have not indicated that he has encouraged you in any way. You are too young for him and from the way his facebook reads, you are not ready physically or mentally for him.

If he has not encouraged you in any way, forget that crush. However, if he has approached, encouraged, or insinuated that he in interested in you in any way, tell your mother or sister immediately.

Please  feel free to write me again.
