Although he might seen like he’s more into other things than dating, if the right girl comes along then you never know - he might be interested. The truth is, you’ll never know unless you give a chance. You’re young, you might as well take the chance and tell him now than spend the rest of your time thinking ‘what if’. Honestly, there really isn’t anything disastrous that could come out of it. At least you’ll be able to have a definite yes/no instead of always thinking maybe. I say, go for it. Tell him you like him. It will be WAY out of your comfort zone if you’re shy, but this is the first step to building your confidence. You have to do things which you’re not comfortable with - sometimes it could go wrong but more often than not, you’ll get some really surprising unexpected results. What’s the worse that could happen? You’re young! Good luck xx
You shouldn’t feel like you’re not good enough - ever. So what if he’s dated other girls before? You’re the one that he’s with right now. And even though you don’t realize this yourself, I know for a fact that he sees you as the most amazing girl in the world. There will be little things about yourself that you either hate or don’t recognise, but to him it’s going to mean the world. Don’t doubt yourself - you’re together for a reason. xx
First of all, you have to know that you are not the only person who feels like this. An incredible amount of teenage girls our age feels this way as well. You may think you’ll never find someone but you’re only 17! Studies have proven that 86% of people find the person the marry during or after University. You have so long to find the right person. Also, I really respect you for thinking that you’re pretty. Confidence is beautiful and you should never let anyone change what you think about yourself. I promise you that one day you will find a guy who will feel the same way about you. Maybe you just haven’t met the right people yet, but you will one day. xx

It really depends on the person. Some people are okay with it, some people aren’t, it’s your choice and no one can tell you if it’s right or wrong xx
If you really like him then how do you know that it’s going to end? You don’t, maybe it’ll last, because if you both really like each other then it’ll work out. You could call or text him, and just because you’re not going to see him for a bit doesn’t mean that you’re going to stop liking him. However, if you like this other guy, then you should end it with him because it’s pretty mean to go out with someone if you like someone else. As for your friends, they have no say in what you want to do, it’s your choice and if they ask why just explain to them calmly. Good luck xx
This is not what life is. If there was one thing I could promise you, it’s that life is not about sadness. Life is about hope, adventure, love, happiness, dreams, and every single good thing you could possibly think of. Sure, sometimes it gets bad here and there, but when you look at the bigger picture, all the good times will be worth the sadness now.
Maybe you should start thinking about why you’re sad. If you told us more about that then maybe we’d be able to help you more. As for not enjoying things, always look on the optimistic side of things. That’s hard to get used to at first, but think about what you have compared to other people who aren’t as lucky. It puts your own life into perspective, you’re so lucky to be where you are right now and you deserve all the happiness in the world. You just have to hold on a bit, once your mood swings even out, you’re going to start feeling a lot happier almost all of the time.
Never give up on anything. Giving up means that you’ve given up your chance at happiness. You have to fight on and although it can be a bit of a struggle, and sometimes you might not want to, if you try hard at something you’re going to get results. Maybe find a hobby you really like that you will work hard on and that will motivate you, such as dancing, or writing, etc.
In the end, it comes down to being positive. It’s the key to being a happier person, and there are many ways to have a brighter outlook on life. Meditate 5-10 minutes after a day will help clear your head, eating a banana every morning will help reduce stress because it contains lots of good ‘chemicals’ that reduce the stress hormones, every time you get upset or get sad, always remember that things will get better. xx
Have you tried explaining this to your parents? Being a teenager is about having fun before you get too old to do all the crazy stuff you can do now. Your teenage years won’t last forever and maybe if you explained this to your parents, they’d understand. You’re not asking to go clubbing every other night, but just ask if you can maybe have lunch with a few friends this weekend. Start out slow, don’t just pop up out of the blue and ask for 10 days in Hawaii with some guy you just met. Maybe just a lunch or a small sleepover. Good luck xx
If you both still obviously like each other, then you just have to wait until he’s ready. It might seem hard, waiting for so long, but it’ll also test the both of you on how much you really like each other. I don’t think he meant to hurt you, and I know for a fact that he’s hurting too. He’s just not ready yet and you can’t blame him for that. He made the right decision, better than continuing a relationship he wasn’t committed too, because he’d have ended up hurting you even more. xx
