Hi there… How’s it going? Probably not all that great or you wouldn’t be here looking for help. No worries. Teens have been emailing me since 1997 because I give good advice. If you’ve got a problem with friends, so-called friends, a bf/gf, a parent, or anything else… email me. I can help you sort out your feelings. No matter what’s going on, you always have choices. And choices matter because sometimes the stuff we do to “fix” a problem only makes things worse. You don’t want to go there. Instead, let me help you figure out your next best move

Breaking up is hard to do. And painful. Hopefully, though, there were good times before the relationship tanked, so at least you've got some happy memories. On the other hand, if you're obsessed with someone who was never nice to you, well, that's just pain on pain. No one needs that.
Recently got an email from a girl in that dark place. Read on...
My heart aches for him and I really want to move, but I find myself checking his instagram, facebook, and all other social media just to see him. I cant let go, even though I want to so bad. I'm torn between wanting him to want me and wanting to forget about him completely. It's been almost a year. I just hate this obsession. What do I do? –So Stuck
Dear So Stuck,
The truth may hurt, but I've got to say it anyway. This guy doesn’t care about you, That's the way it is. You may wish things were different, but all the wishing in the Known Universe and beyond will not change fact.
Here’s something else that’s true: You deserve someone who wants to be with you as much as you want to be with him. This guy is not The One. The sooner you accept it, the sooner you will find The One (Maybe during this coming school year! There’s an exciting thought!)
In the meantime, you've got to stop checking up on this guy. It’s a total waste of the summer and, more important, it's bringing you down. More »

“He doesn't love me anymore!”
“I need information on teen pregnancy.”
My boyfriend likes my best friend. We have been together for 3 months and 11 days! He always flirts with other girls. My friends say "Dump him," but I can't let go. I love him... A LOT! We get into fights a lot. He doesn't abusively fight, but we do argue! Terra, I need your advice.
He doesn't love me!
In English we have to say a 7 minute presentation about something so I was wondering if you could help me out by answering 3 questions for me!!!!
1. Can you give some information on the percent of teenage pregnancy in the past 2 years??? Can you tell me if it has gone down or up!!!
2. What's the main reason girls get pregnant??
3. Do you think the conclusion of this is for teen girl to get on birth control??? What do you think?
