I have feelings for my best friend.  I want to act on them, but I’m worried it could ruin our friendship.  Help!

Anxiously awaiting your reply,

Platonically Perturbed

This can be a very difficult situation, but it’s not uncommon.  Don’t worry, you’re not alone in this experience. Many may say that revealing your feelings could do more harm than good, but my philosophy is that you should never waste time.  If you feel something, don’t spend your life debating whether or not to act on it. The hardest part of this process is not the rejection you may receive, but the loss you could suffer if you don’t open your heart.  So, I say you should go for it. If they really are your best friend, they’ll understand (or even reciprocate!) your feelings.

I’m thinking of going vegan.  What should be my first step?

Sincerely,

A Hungry Herbivore

Dragons eat meat.  I’m afraid I can’t help you.

I finally tried to talk to my crush at a Halloween party.  As soon as I got my nerve up, she walked away. It seems like this always happens.  She’s ignoring my texts and everything. How can I get her to notice me?

Please don’t leave me on read,

Gravely Ghosted

Here’s the thing.  Sometimes, girls just don’t like you back.  When she doesn’t, as much as you don’t want to, you should just leave her alone.  The truth is that many girls don’t feel comfortable turning people down. Whether it’s from the fear of being labeled as a shrew or being assaulted by a scorned man, it seems she has trouble telling you to your face.  My advice is to shrug it off and find a new crush. I know this is difficult, but it’s for your romantic health and it’s good practice for the future. Hackneyed saying, but true: there are plenty of fish in the sea. I guarantee that other girls will fall for you if you give them the chance.  If not, you may want to consider that you may be a spirit.
