I'm not sure if Andy likes me or not. I think he does, because he liked me all of last year. But he's been dating Cara for about five or six months and they're really cute and happy together. So I'm thinking he may have forgotten all about me. I'm not sure. And it's totally okay to like Tristan. You don't have to get over him if you don't want to. It's not like it's interfering with your life or anything. So you can oogle at him all you want, and eventually, I promise, the novelty will wear off. But don't think something's wrong with you for liking him? Sometimes we just can't help ourselves. :]
I'm glad you're going to stay friends with Lu. He really does sound like a fun friend and you're right: there's no reason for you to suddenly not be friends with him. It's not his fault that he doesn't feel that way about you. I'm glad you know that. And like I told LAUREN, you don't have to stop liking Lu right away. Don't stress yourself out with trying to push Lu out of your mind. Let it happen naturally. It will happen. And this Josh guy sounds interesting haha. So if you want him (;]) I see no reason why you shouldn't flirt with him. I'm sure it'd be fun and I'm sure he'd flirt back. You might as well do something to get your mind off Lu and make you feel good. Flirting usually helps in those departments. Just have some fun with Josh. :] Oh, and about boys being pervs... Don't worry, you're attracted to horny teenage guys because all teenage guys are horny, whether they show it or not. I once heard this guy in my biology class talking to his friend while we were doing individual project presentations and every girl that walked up there, he'd go, "Would you f*ck her?" Yeah. I was traumatized. So I told the guys on my bus and they were like, "We do that all the time... Who doesn't?" So yeah. Men are pigs. Haha.
Haha yeah, Joey's British. Most people are like, "Oh, a British person! That's so cool!" He gets all the attention. *rolls eyes* Haha.
Haha, I love you! And if I can YouTube it, I'll definitely let you guys know. ;] And you and Eli are so cute... All your texting and whatnot. If he ends up not wanting to date you, I'll honestly be MEGA surprised. So you're right not to get your hopes up too much, but you can still give in to the extreme flirting (i.e., initiating text conversations.) I'm sure it's fine. :] And I'm with you: if I could have picked who I wanted to have a crush on, it wouldn't have been Andy. But we're also like two peas in a pod... Just like you and Eli. Oh, it's funny how the world works haha. But I love hearing about you and Eli and I can't wait for a month to go by. ;] I'm sorry you may have to see Sarah when you go rock climbing, but hopefully you won't have to see Noah. *fingers crossed* :] (Oh! And I overuse smilies all the time! So I just started converting them to the kind that don't change into animation haha.)
Hope you're feeling better and becoming less confused. And I'm glad you're finally over Mark! I'm so proud of you! *hugs*
Haha you're so cute. Yeah, I'm a little worried about being in an environment where there's going to be drinking... but Andy already told me that everyone loves me too much to pressure me to do anything. Which is good. And even if they did try to pressure me, I'd just be like, "No way, Jose!" Haha. Don't worry. There are going to be a few other people who are staying sober. So yeah. I'll be fine. :] But I'm going to now say the same thing to you about your situation... Please be careful! For me? Really. You said yourself you think it's a bad idea and you feel yourself falling for her all over again. Not good signs. And she was being distant? No, she was being Elke. She always does that. Awww, HOLDEN. I love you and I worry about you and I don't want to have to worry about you! So watch yourself, man. Keep YOUR HAPPINESS first priority, always. :] (Oh, and to what you just wrote @ MARIE... 10% chance? Okay, so if you have a million dollars and there's a 10% chance you could double it at a craps table, do you roll the dice? NO! Those are chances you just don't take, and it's the same with taking chances with your feelings. Just look at it that way for a second.)
Haha yeah... there are a lot... and I actually may have a crush on Andy so... haha yeah. Lol. :] I totally know what you mean about boys. They can be so immature at our age. But we just have to deal with it. And you shouldn't swear off dating... you should swear off dating guys who are immature and not worth dating. Lol. Really, if you like this guy, go for it. Have fun. Who cares if he's popular? That doesn't mean he's unattainable. And you must like him for a reason, so start flirting with him and see where the wind blows you. Just have fun. Really. Good luck. :]
Haha changing your vote again? Okay, that's fine. I'll tally that up. ;] And I'm glad things are good with Ben. And that he's not gay... hahaha. :]
Lol, your first kiss story was funny. Even if it wasn't the greatest first kiss, it probably makes for an interesting story to tell your future soulmate... haha. :]
I think it's good for you to wait. Maybe a couple weeks. Until he's over this girl who crushed his heart. Because everyone's right, you don't want to be the rebound girl. So when it appears that he's feeling a bit better, just tell him, "The reason I couldn't give you advice about getting back together with you is because I like you." Or, you know, a variation of that haha. Plus, waiting will give you time to think about how you want to approach it. So there's no rush since he's fresh out of a relationship. But just maybe flirt a little bit with him; get your foot in the door, so to speak. ;]
Thanks for all your advice and I wish you all the happiness in the world! :]
Haha, I'm glad that the situations at least got cleared up, though. :]
As for me:
Sort of a busy day, boy-wise.
On the bus this morning, Jordan was like, "Why don't you text me anymore?" And I was like, "Do you want me to? Okay, I will. I mean, you know you can text me, right?" And he said, "But I'm afraid you won't want to talk to me." He's silly. And then he said, "We should go to the movies some time. My girlfriend doesn't like going to the movies, so I never get to go anymore. We should go together." I just said, "Hmmm, yeah..." Haha. Weird. It's not like it'd be a date, but it'd be weird.
Joey lavished me with compliments, as usual. *rolls eyes* Haha.
Coomer was all over me in Photo. He wasn't even there the whole class, because he's on run crew for my show and the other cast had a matinee, but when he was there he was like attached to my hip. :/
Tim called me last night. Why? Question about homework. Literally our conversation was, "Hey, do we need to use MLA on the English homework?" "No." "Okay, bye." Not even a friendly bout of small talk? Really, Tim? That's low. But apparently he's coming to my show tomorrow night... Whatever.
I rode the bus this afternoon for the first time in forever and my friend Marshall was riding. And I just realized how much I LOVE THIS KID TO DEATH. I don't like him like that, if that's what you're thinking, I just love him. He makes me smile. We were best friends last year, but we have no classes this year and we're never on the bus. Bummer. I miss that kid.
Andy is seriously going crazy not knowing who it is. He's like, "I can't wait till tomorrow!" He's been asking me to tell him all afternoon haha. Last night, I told him that I told my mom the boys weren't spending the night at the cast party so that she'd let me go and he was like, "Good! I don't know what I'd do without you." Lol. So then I was texting him earlier and I was like, "I have a feeling you've got a guess as to who it is?" And he didn't want to tell me, but I got it out of him. (It was our friend Eliot, whom I LOVE dearly, but not like that... Haha.) And he said, "I have a 'no' list." And guess what? Among Coomer, Joey, and others... He's on it. Lol. He really has no idea... So he said, "Just tell me, is it someone on the 'no' list?" I wouldn't tell him, though. He got mad. So I said, "You still love me." And he said, "Yes! I love you more than life." Haha, oh jeez, Andy.
So this is off topic, but I just found out that my theatre class is doing The Laramie Project (the story of Matthew Shepard) for our workshop! If you know of that play, then... yeah. I love it. It's going to be amazing.
Off to do homework... I may not be on tomorrow at all because I think I'm going home with my friend Emily before the show... so if I don't talk to you guys until then, wish me luck with telling Andy! Haha. :]
