Advice from Abbie: Crushes, Weird Eye Contact, and Adam Being Dumb


  DISCLAIMER! Although this is Abbie’s genuine advice, it is incredibly important to note that Abbie is not at all an expert in . . . anything. So, you really might not want to take her advice. In fact, you might even want to do the opposite. Whatever floats your boat, man. In the end, use your own personal judgment because you are awesome, smart, and capable of making the right decision.

Dear Abbie,

  There is this person I like but I’m not sure if they feel the same. How should I act?


Dear B,

  It sounds like an exciting situation! In my experience, the best way to act around your crush is simply how you are. In a relationship, it’s important that your partner likes you for you, and not some fake version of yourself. You may feel flustered and nervous around your crush too- don’t worry about it. 

  Try and read signals from your crush too! If the opportunity arises, don’t be afraid to strike up a conversation with them and get to know them better. If they want to hang out with you too, maybe even build up the confidence to ask them out. A lot of wondering can be solved by asking a simple yes or no question (when the time feels right of course). 

  Most of all, remember that no matter what happens you are an awesome, valid person. If they end up liking you, fantastic! If they don’t, remember that’s okay. You have plenty of time left ahead of you and I assure you there will be people who do.


Dear Abbie,

  I keep making weird eye contact with this person in one of my classes. I want to stop, but I can’t help it. Sometimes I just zone out. Plus it’s not like he doesn’t do it. Ugh, please help.


Dear Pancake,

  Wow, that does sound like a struggle. I think I simple, “Oh sorry! I was zoning out!” will be efficient. And if it’s not, then just make funny faces at him. That’s what I do!


Dear Abbie,

  Abbie bullies me.


Dear Adam,

  Be quiet and go back to your corner.
