Why do I have to go to Chicago with my dad?


Well, if you are being forced to go to Chicago, you have to make the best of it. Some ways to get closer with your dad is to start making a conversation that you both need to spend some more time together doing. You should tell him how much you want to get closer to him. Enjoy quality father-daughter time, like going to the movies, the beach, bowling, etc. Good luck, Amy and Allison


I’ve known this guy for about six months and he’s my best friend. We have a lot of things in common and we get along really good. There is one problem: My friend who introduced us has liked him for two years. He pretty much ignores her and spends time with me. I don’t know what to tell her. We like each other and we keep sneaking around so she won’t see us. I told her that I like him and she was upset. Is there an easy way to tell her we are becoming a couple?


It is important to maintain an honest relationship with both your friend and your boyfriend. Your friend will be upset no matter what, so you need to let her down in the empathetic way. The more you keep  from telling her and sneaking around, she will eventually find out and be even more hurt. Before you tell her, try to set her up with somebody new so she won’t be as offended by your new relationship, since she’ll have someone new in mind. Hang out with only her and take a break from your boyfriend so she knows that her friendship is just as important to you. Good luck, Amy and Allison
