LoveYourself17 answered Tuesday July 17 2012, 2:52 am: I know your situation. I'm going into 10th grade and I have been best friends with this girl since 6th grade. She is always "complaining" about how big her butt is and how many guys like her, and it gets really on my nerves. Lately (and this isn't the first time) she has 4 or 5 guys like her at once and I have none. But then recently her cousin tried to commit suicide and they are really close so I know where you are coming from. I don't really know how I deal with her, sometimes I want to be just like her because she is so skinny and has perfect hair. But then I think of all the good times we have like going to the beach, the water parks, just the sleepovers. I have so many good memories with her that I would regret if I was not friends with her. I would just think of all the good things you have that she doesn't. Your personality could be better that could maybe lead to a better relationship then she could keep, or maybe she has that one flaw that you don't have. Everyone is beautiful in their own way, including you, and dont ever think you are worse then her because you arent, you shouldn't be jealous at all because one day you will be more beautiful than anyone else in the world to one special person.

Drewb13 answered Thursday July 12 2012, 9:26 pm: STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO HER! You need to love and appreciate yourself more. So what if she gets 60 likes on her facebook? Everytime I post something I get 5 likes. When my friends post something, everybody likes it. But I don't care who likes my status and neither should you. Out of all those guys your friend talks to, how many of them do you think have good intentions? Don't be so jealous of someone else's life because you don't know what goes on behind closed doors.
I hope this helps.

Always remember someone has it worse then you, look for the things you have or do that is better then your best friend and take pride in it, show confidence . A women who is confident in herself is always more attractive . Also, don't fall back in the shadows of your best friend , show people the real you and if your not already become independent from your friend . Just remember love yourself !

Teenshelper answered Thursday July 12 2012, 7:36 pm: This perfectly normal just tell her she will understand. You might be surprised what she might say. You may just be out of place with the poplularity, I felt this way once but I realized that these weren't my type of people. I meet some new people and you would be surprised how many more I had in a week. Doesn't mean you aren't popular. Your friend will understand just tell her talk about she may help you out or make you feel better not good idea to keep it in.
