hey im 13yr old girl and i think i might have ruined a awesome friendship.
i met this guy at summer camp and he was funny and sarcastic (so am i) and just a great guy friend. we got pretty close and all when i rescued him from a crazy stalker crush. but then i started to get feelings for him. i told him about then and kinda weirded him out.
now our friendship is kinda strained and we used to talk about nothing and now its hard to find something to talk about.
what should i do???

You should talk to him and ask him how he feels about this whole situation. It's really hard to talk to a 13 year old guy about this kind of stuff, though, because they mature slower than girls. So I can see why he was weirded out by your comments, because most guys at that age aren't really into the "sharing your feelings" type of gimmick, when girls at that age are.

I tell him something like, "Can we not let this get in the way of our great friendship? I didn't know that you didn't want to talk about that subject, and I'm really sorry. I hope that we can start over."

It wasn't your fault for sharing your feelings with him, but guys at this age aren't into that sort of stuff...

If you need anymore help, just ask, I'm here for ya! :)



So..wat are some healthy snacks that won't make you get hungrier after you eat them??
16/F * Skyla *

I'd stay away from salty or sugary foods, because those get most addicting.

I'd try eating apples. They are probably the healthiest food out there, plus they help curve your appetite, so that you aren't very hungry afterwards, because they're very filling.

You could also try eating various fresh fruits and vegetables. You can eat as much as you want, most of them taste very good, and you don't have to worry about overeating.

You could also try drinking lots of water every day. Water helps make you full during a meal or a snack.


Ok so I know this is really stupid of me asking by what are some cute pet nicknames for my boyfriend

Please don't say cutie pie or sweetie I'm looking for something original and cute

I would think of some interests that he has, or his likes and such, and make up a cool little nickname out of that. The more creative the better, and he'll enjoy your creativity if you make up a word play based on his interests and such, and use it as his nickname.


Hi. I love taking videos on my digital camera and then watching them on my computer! But I REALLY want to put them on DVDs, so I can have the memories forever, and share them with my friends. The problem is, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DO IT!!!! Can you help me??? Thanks!


I'm not really an expert in this category, but what program are you using to watch the videos on your computer?

I will do some research on that program to see if and how you can burn movies and such, and I'll get back to you on it.

Please reply back with the name of the program.



what can dogs eat?

why not chocolate?

i see tv/movies where the owners just let the dog eat off their plate. isnt that bad?

If you have a dog, I'd feed it mainly dry dog food, because the canned food is generally unhealthy, and can be deadly.

Chocolate is harmful for dogs, and not for people, because chocolate contains lots of caffeine, and humans can endure the effects of caffeine, but since dogs have smaller bodies and such, the caffeine in chocolate and coffee makes their hearts beat to fast, leading to heart attacks.

I wouldn't recommend letting dogs eat table scraps, because they aren't used to "people food", so it's unhealthy for them, because it leads too obesity and other diseases.


How do you uninstal rhapsody when it won't open at all. It always says error, can't open or something like that. Is there another way to uninstal it?

I would try the Help feature on the Rhapsody website here: http://i.realone.com/product/help/rhapwebflare/en/rhapweb.htm



how do you open up your pores? do i shower with hot water and wait a while?

i need to get rid of my blackheads (on my nose) but no facewash helps. i think its something im doing wrong. or else.. whatever im using on face, do i wait a while then wash it off? wait for it to absorb into my face?

now im resorting to picking at them..

What you can do is boil some water and pour it into a bowl.

Put the bowl on your bathroom counter and shut the door.

Bend over so that your face is in the reach of the steam and wait until the water stops steaming.

It will then help make your pores open up.

Then, pinch your blackheads to remove them after steaming.

This should work for most people.

If it doesn't work, try the blackhead strips from Biore, those work pretty well.



Alright, well I'm not a fat girl..I only weigh 113..but I have one HUGE problem with my body. On my back I have two fat..chunks I guess is how you would say it. Any advice on how I can get that gone?

Unfortunately, no.

It is impossible to lose weight in a specific area of the body. When you lose weight, the area of your body that it is lost in is random. Usually when you lose weight, the loss of weight is evened out throughout the body, based on how many calories and such you have burned.

I would try exercising normally and eating healthy, and you should be able to lose weight throughout your entire body, including in your back.

Best Regards,


ok...this might sound like a really stupid question but i really want to know...how do you know if you like someone....i mean...i know you have this feeling and stuff but how do you really know and how do you know if they like you back???

Trust me, you'll know if you like, or even love someone.

The feelings are different for everyone, it depends on the person, really.

You could get butterflies in your stomach, feel all woozy, feel queasy or lightheaded, have sweaty palms, or just feel perfectly find, although deep down inside, you have feelings for that person.

As for knowing if they like you, it depends on the guy or girl as well.

For girls, it ranges from playing with their hair, being shy around you, being in the same places as you, .etc.

For guys, it ranges from them listening to you more than talking to you, staring at you then looking away, smiling or blushing in your presence, .etc.


WARNING: long and maybe confusing :'(

okay well i have this friend. lets call him bob. and then i have this other friend so lets call her sally.

well me and bob used to be really great friends. and he used to tell e everything. but for some reason hes only been talking to sally.
and bobs friend ets say billy sent a comment on myspace saying
"hey brittney. can you call sally and tell her that bob says he loves her and shes probally never going to see him again"
and so now im scared soo bad... hes attempted suicide.. and he has a bad temper. and i dont know what to do.. ive called him sooo many times... :'(

please i need some advice


You have to do whatever it takes to contact him. Whether it be traveling six hours, spending hours and hours trying to find out his cell phone number, .etc.

Do whatever it takes, because you could most likely be saving his life...

If you really care for Bob then you MUST talk to him in person, and bring some other people along that care for him as well, such as family, friends, co-workers, .etc.

He must know that people care for him and don't want him to do anything stupid, because there are gonna be a lot of people that will be very sad if he does commit suicide.

You must also tell him that suicide does not solve anything. It only makes the people that love and care for him suffer because of something stupid that he did, when he could've gotten help from a psychologist or a counselor.

He really does need help if he continues to think these thoughts and whatnot.

If you really care for him, please contact a suicide hotline, or refer him to the hotline, such as these:

My 'friend' broke my camera & didn't even apologize or offer to help me buy a new one. So it's going to take months for me to save up, so I would like some reviews on some good CANON cameras. $200-300ish. Please only post if you're going to include pictures because I'm taking a photography class & it's for models. Thanks

If I were you, I'd try finding some new friends that you can trust. If your friend can't even apologize for breaking it, never the less pay for it, then that's just sad...

As for the Canon Cameras, I'd try Amazon.

They always have good deals, and they also have customer reviews as well, to help you choose a good camera.

Here are some good Canon Cameras that I found on Amazon:

so i just got the nokia 6126, how do i add music from itunes? its sooo confusing

please dont answer if you have no idea what your talking aobut, its really importantt

ill rate high

I would not get a Nokia if I were you.

Nokia phones are very unreliable, referring to dropped calls and such, and their customer service is horrific.

I used to have a Nokia, and it was a blessing in disguise when it got stolen.

I used to have Alltel, after Nokia, and that wasn't much better.

If I were you, I'd switch to Cingular, Verizon, or Sprint.

Here's a website that may be of benefit to you: http://cell-phone-providers-review.toptenreviews.com/

And as to the adding of music from iTunes - it cannot be done because of a Nokia phone's lack of features.

ok so you've heard it before, i like my best guy friend but he's sort of involved with someone. a few months ago i was going to tell him i liked him and as i opened my mouth to say it he said "so i heard so and so likes me" so i never ended up telling him i liked him. now he likes this girl and she likes him. they call each other everyday but they always fight and they're not even going out yet. then he comes back to me for advice about it and i don't know what to say. i want him so bad, he's so sweet and caring and when his "non-girlfriend" isn't around i always feel this spark between us but im not sure if he feels it too. he was going to ask this girl out because things were going good for a while but now they're fighting again and he's asking for advice again. he's always so stressed out because of this and he always looks depressed. i want to show him that there's something better (me) but i don't know how he'll react and i don't know exactly what to say. any advice? im open to about anything.

You have to make your move before he asks her to be his girlfriend.

Trust me, by doing this, it will be helping yourself, as well as him. Because you obviously really care for him and want nothing bad to happen to him, because you feel bad for him that he's in that kind of a "relationship".

I think right now he thinks of you as more of a friend because he keeps asking you for advice and such, but if you don't want to be viewed as a friend, than I would make a move right now, or else you are just going to have to keep giving him advice about what to do in his "relationship" that is obviously going nowhere but downhill.

By asking him out, you will help him from suffering through a rocky relationship with that girl, because he obviously needs you to help him through his current relationship, which means that he thinks highly of you and knows that you care about him. Which is excellent, considering that the chances of him starting a relationship with you are very high because of your caring nature.

I would move in ASAP, or you can start calling yourself his lifetime advice giver instead of his girlfriend...

i really want a mini cooper and i would like to know if a nice one is not extremely expensive.my parents have money but they arent rich so i dont want to get something that cost alot of money.i really dont care if its used or new,as long as its not all banged up or anything! i really like the 2005 version but if theres anything less that is similar in style will be ok to! can someone with expeirence on car prices tell me if the cooper is a good choice money wise?thanx!

I am looking into buying a Mini-Cooper as well, when I turn 16, of course.

They are very economical cars, in terms of mileage and such.

When I was looking in a new and used car lot, the price for a new Mini-Cooper is around $18,000 to $25,000.

For the 2005 versions, though, they are around $22,000 to $25,000. It all depends on whether it's a hatchback or a convertible. Hatchbacks are less.

Here are two websites that I found that may be of interest to you:



How much do you have to pay for a pretty good camcorder? I don't need the BEST one, but I just don't want a crappy one. Thanks.

It's about $450, and it has excellent ratings from users on Amazon. :)

I posted a question and you answered it but I still have some questions. You stated that the body can't control wear the meat goes,so how do I exactly get more meat on my body cause I'm skinny now,just eat more? When I eat more it all goes to my stomach,or is there a specific food group?

thanks for answering

Just do strength exercises, like lifting weights and such.

Try eating more lean meats as well, and lots of protein, like nuts and eggs.

You can't control where the meat will go, though. It's just a luck of the draw.

Is it illegal to put youtube videos on a CD? And if it is, why? If it's not, can someone explain tome how to put da videos on da CD?

Izzy Uchiha

I am pretty sure it is, because it is illegal to reproduce someone's work without their permission in any form.

I wouldn't do it, because breaking copyright laws are very serious, and it could get you in a lot of trouble.

I would just save or bookmark the links to the youtube videos or e-mail them to yourself to save them.

Even if, with small hope, it is legal, I don't recommend doing it because you don't know for sure, and it could get you into a lot of trouble.
