My buds say I’m boy crazy!
I have to admit, I like boys … a lot! Right now, I have four crushes, and my friends keep saying it’s annoying. They say I talk about boys too much, but I just can’t help it! What do I do? — Katie, 14
Candace: If there are enough people bringing a specific thing to your attention, then it is something to listen to and be mindful of. It doesn’t mean that you have to stop talking about your crushes, but make sure to talk about other things as well. Natasha: This is the story of my life. It’s totally OK to like boys and to think they’re cute — trust me, I think plenty are! Find the right times to talk about it and don’t let it consume you. Be present in conversations that your friends are having and don’t always bring up boys. You have your whole life to talk and dream about boys, so enjoy the time you have with your friends and whatever they are doing!
