    She's going through a tough time.

    Her boyfriend is 21 and she is 22. He is second guessing their relationship because she does not know if she wants kids and he already knows that he wants them. The thing is is that she can change her mind in the future about it (if you noticed, we are still kids learning to...

    My Friend'S Relationship Troubles

    My friend has a crush on a guy who is only in a few of her classes. She likes him, but is too shy to say anything. She won't even say stuff like "Hi, I'm ____" as she says, I quote, "That statement is a terrible way to start a conversation, as in this day and age, all guys know...

    He's sliding off the track.

    Pretty soon I won't be able to help him at all. I am not going to hang out with him if he continues to act the way he is. Im going to have to have a talk with him and I think he is going to get upset.

    I am trying to help

    I think my best friend is anorexic/bulimic.

    She never eats very much at school. It makes me upset. Please help me. She always is "sick" puking from "bad food" and she already told me she thinks she is a fatass.

    I'm Desperate...

    I've known my friend for about 6 months. I know it's not so long, but I care very deeply about her. She's been depressed as long as I know her, and recently she told me she'd been sad for about 2 years now. She's having horrible family problems, and she blames herself for...

    My friend is so depressed,

    and I can't do anything about it. We're both going through the same ****. I promised him to stay up with him till he feels better. I'm worried it won't get better. I really want to help him and be there for him but it's impossible.

    My friend is really upset at the moment.

    I don't know what to say to him, I'm not really good at talking to people. In short, he had this girlfriend that he really liked. She was nice and they were great together. Then she cheated on him only one week into the relationship. He broke up with her as soon as he found...
