im 13 and im going out with this really great guy, mike. there are a couple of problems with this relationship, though. first of all, he is my best friend's ex boyfriend. they broke up a few weeks ago and she claims she is totally over him. she even likes another guy. but since i have been going out with mike, people have been asking her arent you mad at melissa (me) for going out with mike (her ex boyfriend) and though she says no, i still feel bad! also, all of mike's friends hate me. i really don't know why, but they have always picked on me and say stupid stuff and sometimes even harrased me. now, they're all on him for going out with me, and i feel extremely bad. he says that it doesn't bother him, and he'd rather go out with me then have some of them as friends, but i know he's kind of lieing. i have told his friends not to be on him about it if im the one they hate, but they obviously dont listen. do you think i should break up with him for all of these reasons? or what should i do to fix the situation?
