i've heard rumours.. - December 10th 2010, 01:55 AM

hey everyone,

this is sort of complicated, but here it goes. there's this guy in my grade and in most of my classes (let's call him Jason) who, in october, i randomly started talking with a lot and developed a crush on. in november, this one girl in a few of my classes (let's call her Lila) randomly started flirting with him and calling him her boyfriend all the time, although they weren't and aren't dating. one of my closer friends (let's call her Misty) is really close to Lila and knows that i like Jason. she's told me that Lila doesn't actually like Jason. i've talked to Jason online in the middle of this and casually asked him what was going on between him and Lila. he said that they were just playing around and that it's all a joke.

so anyways, Misty, giving me all the latest news on Jason since he's close to Lila now and apparently confides everything to her, said that Jason's been having family troubles lately. from observation, we think that he's been either: a) abusing drugs and/or alcohol, or b) getting more and more depressed. to explain, Jason's always been sort of the quiet guy who's secretly hilarious, but recently, he seems sad, depressed and really out of it.

on friday, apparently Lila told Jason that she wants to stop with the whole joking around that they're boyfriend and girlfriend thing and ever since, i haven't seen them talk to each other. Misty was there and she said that it was pretty rough.

so now, i know for sure that Jason probably doesn't have anyone to actually talk with. i'm really worried about him and i want to help, but since we haven't exactly been talking for almost a month, i don't know what to do. help?

(also: i'm sorry if this wasn't posted in the right forum section. i wasn't really sure where to put it.)

I would most defiantly talk to him. It does sound like something is wrong and he might just need someone to talk to. But, if he does not want to talk about it, don't push it too much. But, if you're worried that he's not safe and he's not talking to anyone, i would defiantly tell someone who can help (you know. teachers, parents, etc.).

That does sound like something is going on. Just approach him ask how things have been and giving him a shoulder if he needs one. Not talking for a month isn't so bad, just strike up a casual conversation.

Because your amazing, just the way you are.
Thankyou, for everything.
