Teenage Problems/I'm afraid he is losing interest 2


Hi dr lee :) I'm 18 and he's 22.
And yes we are not dating or anything. We're friends but he used to always show me that he cares and I think he likes me. I like him so much.
He's done with university and I'm still in university :)

Hi Carla,
Thank you for writing to me again.
You previously stated that you've been out with your friend on three different occasions, two with others and the last outing was the two of you alone. If you like him and you think he likes you, just talk with him.  Both of you are old enough to hold an intelligent conversation.  Don't put yourself down. You are just as smart as he is. Just because he has finished at the University,  think very high of yourself because you are attending the University.  It is okay to see where his feelings are for you and if he wants to have more than a friendship.  Once you know that you will be able to tell him how you feel or just keep him as a good friend.

I can answer questions relating to youth that are on probation, arrested, has anger management issues, lack of impulse control, problems in school and substance abuse issues. Additionally, I can answer questions about youth with sex issues, domestic violence, child abuse, child sex abuse, as the abuser and the one that has been abused, parent abuse, physical, mental and psychological abuse. I answer questions about marriage and divorce. I can't answer questions about medication that has been ordered by a psychiatrist and it's side affects or should you stop taking it. I can answer the question as to what reason the medication was ordered.


I have been providing care, guidance, and social services for children, adolescents, and their families for 32plus years. I work with young people who struggle with behavioral problems and issues at home and school. I assist our youth in developing healthy living habits and motivate them to become productive citizens. In addition, I work with the parents and families to motivate and encourage strengthening the family. I have worked with families that have been homeless, in poverty, peer pressure, and bullying. I currently counsel with youth that are on probation for battery, domestic violence, petit and petite theft, substance substance abuse and sex offenders. I also speak with their teachers and go into the homes and schools. I am a mentor to all these children and their parents. When help is needed beyond my expertise I will suggest where to take the child to receive the proper services.
