So there's this guy... - February 11th 2009, 10:27 PM

I met this guy this year in high school. We're friends, and I really like him... but not enough to consider it "loving" him. I don't know him enough to consider it love.

Actually, I know almost nothing about him. I really want to be better friends with him, but all my good friends that I have right now hate him. And honestly, I don't know why.

I'm scared that if I get to be better friends with him, my OTHER friends will start avoiding me if I hang out with him. And I don't want to fall into the wrong crowd. He hangs out with the "druggies" in my school. He's considered a druggie too, but that doesn't bother me too much...

I just don't know what to do. I always have problems choosing which friends to be with, because I'm not a very social person and I have problems talking to new people... my first year of high school (this year), I've only met two new people that I can consider friends while all my other friends have met dozens.

Any advice on what I should do to be friends with him, or any tips on making new friends?

Hi Lily,

Have you considered talking to your friends about why they hate this guy so much? You could just bring it up in a conversation casually sometime. That may give you a better idea of where they are coming from.

As for talking to this guy, there is nothing wrong with talking to people. Maybe you could partner up with him for a class project or something? That would help to get to know him and then it's an excuse with your other friends because you can say it's for school. That way you can get to know him better and see if you want to be friends.

Just make sure you stay safe. Drugs aren't a good thing to get into.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

You can always have a variety of friends. If you're friends leave you because you choose to associate yourself with a person outside of your group, then they aren't friends at all.
