Miss Swoon, I really liked your comments to Singing. I agree that friendships can outlast romance. Cultivate your girlfriends.
Dear Miss Swoon,My best friend is pretty and funny. It's not a big surprise that some guys like her. She also gets stared at a lot in public. The thing is though she brags about it a lot. I get a case of the green eyed monster when she talks about some guy giving her a present on Valentine's day because stuff like that never happens to me. And whenever I say something about a guy possibly liking me, such as "omg he keeps facebook chatting me for my aim address" or "i think that random kid behind us is staring at me" she'll always then say something like "he asks for my aim address all the time too, he probably wants urs so he can look on ur profile and find my address." or "no actually the random kid is staring at me". Whenever, she says those things it gives my self esteem a beating, she can be a great friend besides that though. All I want to know is there a good way to handle all those remarks she makes?
