I want to make sure I wow my prom date
I have never felt pretty and I want to impress my date.
My mom is going to do my makeup and hair - and that’s great for the prom.
But I feel like I am using her as a crutch.
I want to be able to look pretty all the time but I don't to always rely on my mother.
What should I do? - Masked in MontzDear Masked: You’re not the only nervous kid out there - I know some who are still looking for limos and restaurants.
I don’t think you’re using your mom as a crutch.
It is part of her duty as a mother to help you get ready for one of the biggest nights of your life.
As for looking your best all the time, ask her to teach you how to apply makeup correctly or check out a book from the library.
You can learn a lot about makeup application on your own.I’m buddies with my best friend’s enemy
Dear Nattie: Here's my problem. My best friend was arguing with this girl that we go to school with over something really silly and I backed her up by telling her that I didn’t like this person either.
Well, in English class the other day we had to work in groups and my friend’s enemy was in my group.
We started to talk and I realized that I really liked her and we have become friends.
Later, I told my best friend that I was now friends with her arch rival - and she said that I couldn't be her friend if I was friends with the other girl. What should I do?
- Torn in DestrehanDear Torn: I love the fact that your "friend" wants to make you choose. It is so classic.
Anyway, I think it is not fair for your friend to demand that you choose between the two of them just because they don't like each other.
Apparently, the other girl does not have a problem with the fact that you are her enemy's friend, so why does your "friend" have a problem with it?
I'm not saying not to choose, I’m just also saying that you shouldn't be forced to. Bring that up with your "friend" and see how she feels about it.
