So I went to Snapchat to ask my friends any questions they had about love, relationship, etc. The feedback I got was great and I think I'll do it more often for other topics...
Why does a guy make you think that he likes you but then doesn't? Like stop messing with my feelings"
Boys are dumb! No I'm totally joking because this goes to both genders but I get what you're saying. Don't be the weak one. If you think a guy is playing you, if you think what he's saying isn't true, or if you have reason to believe that he's purposely messing with your feelings then stand up for yourself. Don't sit there and take this kind of behavior because if you don't stop it, they'll go and repeat the same things to another person. Don't just talk to your friends and groan about how this person's mistreating you, actually tell that person off. Politely of course. If he doesn't change, just drop him. No person is worth stressing over if they don't treat you like the queen you are.
How do you know when you're having safe sex"
Oh, yikes I don't even know if this is even school appropriate but okay. Little disclaimer, I'm not a doctor.
I'll summarize safe sex: condoms and other birth control methods.
Safe sex is used to reduce the risk of getting STDs and unwanted pregnancies. Use a condom every time you have sex whether or not you're the pill. "One night stands" and such.. just don't do them. The risk of you contacting an STD just skyrockets. I mean lets be real, at the heat of the moment are you really gonna ask "Oh by the way, do you have any sexually transmitted diseases?" Probably not.
What can you do to make your boyfriend/girlfriend feel special?"
This is different from person to person but in general it's showing that you care about them, that you listen to what they say, and they're one of (if not the) most important person in your life.
How do you not wanna get with other guys like there's so many hot guys"
I find this question so hilarious, mainly because the girl who asked this is one of my bestfriends. Let's get things straight, I love my boyfriend. He's amazing and I wouldn't trade him for the world. Now to say that I don't find other guys nice looking because I'm in a relationship is mildly wrong. Channing Tatum is hot. Like really hot. That dude from dutch bros had a really cute smile. The model with green eyes I found on Forever 21's website had really hot tattoos. You don't shut down completely, you still think other guys are good looking. It's just now, you don't feel the need to start anything. You don't want to talk to them or get their number. They might be nice to look at but being with them is a whole different story. Because thinking a guy is hot and being in a relationship with a guy who you think is hot are two different things. Being in a relationship isn't just about physical appearances; it's about how they make you feel and how they treat you. Because at the end of the day everyone gets old and wrinkly but when you find someone who makes you laugh, makes you feel all warm inside and at home, now why would you do anything to risk losing that?
