Girls are like candy. Sometimes you want a Hershey bar or sometimes you want a Snickers… sometimes you want a popsicle, it’s a complicated feeling. – Alex Libby (Bully)

Dear Sky,
Me and my boyfriend have been dating since 3 months now but I feel like things are changing, I feel like we are slowly pushing each other away, I really don’t want things to end between us, what should I do?
– Confused girl

Dear Confused girl,
If you feel things are ending between your boyfriend and you and you don’t want things to end then tell him how you feel. What’s a good relationship without communication? If he feels the same way as you do then you guys can just talk it out and find ways to make your relationship better again.


Dear Sky,
I don’t see me girlfriend as much as I want to because we both go to different schools and live a distance from each other. I do see her like once a week but that’s not enough. I text her everyday but I sometimes get a feeling that she might cheat on me?
-Worried Boyfriend

Dear Worried Boyfriend,
Everyone goes to what you are going through especially because of the distance. But if you really like the person and they like you back then you should trust them. If you still feel a little insecure then have a serious conversation with them about how you feel and if they like you then they’ll make you understand that they won’t cheat on you.


Dear Sky,
My boyfriend recently send me a message that seemed like he was trying to send to someone else. I told him about it and he told me that it was autocorrection and that he would never do that to me. I just don’t know if I should trust me or believe him.
-Random girl

Dear Random girl,
I’m glad that you talked to your boyfriend about it. But if he shows you that he loves you and that he won’t cheat on him then I think you should believe him. If he would have cheated on you then you would have known for a while now right? If he keeps on doing that then you should a long talk with him and remember first think before you talk.

Dear Sky,
I don’t know what to do because I really like this guy and he knows what I feel for him and ever
since then I feel that things have changed because we don’t talk as much as we used to. I kind
of pushed him away in a way because I’m scared of what he thinks now. Should I tell him how
all this makes me feel or should I let it go?
– Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,
First of all, don’t worry because everyone goes through this. You should tell him how you feel
and if he feels the same, then things will get better. If you don’t know how to confront him or
you’re too shy, you could start by sending him a message or text and if he ignores it, then try
talking to him face to face. Don’t let your feelings get the best of you because you might regret
it later on. Also, don’t forget that if no matter what happens, keep in my mind that you tried your

Dear Sky,
There’s this girl who I think is very pretty and we give each other strong eye contact most of
the time. I get happy when I see her but I don’t even know her at all I just know her name, she
confuses me because she makes it seem like she’s interested because she’s always starring
at me. The problem is that I’m a girl. I’m bisexual. I don’t want to start a conversation with her
because what if she’s straight? I don’t want to make a fool out of myself. What should I do?
Should I just go on with my life and not even bother?
– I Don’t Know What To Do

Dear I Don’t Know What To Do,
You should try talking to her as a friend so you can get to know her. Remember it’s better to
take a risk then not doing anything at all. What’s a life when you’re living in fear of what you
could have done? If you never talk to her then you’ll always be thinking of all that could’ve


Dear Sky,
My best friend and I like the same guy! I feel like he talks to me more but my friend has
liked him for a long time now. I really like him and I feel like he likes me to. What should I do?
Will my best friend be mad if I go out with him?
– Confused Best Friend

Dear Confused Best Friend,
This happens to friends all the time, you and your friend should talk in order to clear things out.
Be honest with each other because you may find out things you never knew. Don’t throw away
your friendship for a foolish reason.
– Sky

Dear Sky,

I have been good friends with a guy for about one year, but I like him, I’m worried it will ruin our friendship, should I just tell him or keep it all to myself? What do you do when you like someone but you keep it to yourself because you don’t want to ruin your friendship?

– Confused

Dear Confused,

It would be better if you told him. If he really is a good friend he won’t let that ruin your friendship. Keeping things inside is not very good. It’s like shaking a soda can, everything is waiting to explode. Doesn’t sound so good right?

– Sky


Dear Sky,

My best friend and I have known each other for a long time now but he has moved away and that distance isn’t only between states.

– Sad

Dear Sad,

There isn’t much you can do, friends come and go but we suggest that if you’re missing someone simply call them. Why make life complicated? You could also Facetime them or Skype to make your calls more interesting.

Dear Sky,

I have a crush on this girl but we don’t talk at all. I’ve seen her around but I’m too shy to talk to her, any advice?

– Shy

Dear Shy,

What’s the worst thing that can happen if you talk to her? Just do it! What’s a life without risks? And if things don’t go the way you want them, don’t worry, there are many other fish in the sea. You could go up to her and compliment her. Be the one to start the conversation because it’s what you want right?
