    So I just woke up and I can perfectly remember

    the dream that I had; it left me with a really awkward feeling. I was at school hanging out with my friends and at the end of the day I for some reason got into my friends car instead of the bus. He drove for a bit and we got really close to my uncle's house so I told him where...

    My gbff (who's straight) is in love with my bff

    and they met "through" me, and she's not it to him but he's in to her. What do I do in this situation? It's awkward.

    I'm now in the car with my dad's driver he's

    going to drop me off at my workplace. He's cute and pretty much older than me, so I get a bit shy and idk what to say or ask anymore lol. More awkward is when we both wanted to turn on the radio. There's still half an hour before he could drop me off. 😳
