Jennette McCurdy answers more questions from her own advice column on Popstar Magazine! Check out the article below to read the wise words of Jennette:
I love hanging out with my best friend but she’s very clingy and gets upset when I’m not always spending time with her. How do I keep my best friend without spending every second with her?
It may be hard to deal with a clingy best friend, but try to remember that if someone is clingy, that can also mean they’re super sensitive and care about you a ton. If I were you, I would sit down with my best friend and explain exactly what you’re feeling to her, in a heartfelt and sensitive way. If your honest words resonate with her and she backs off a little bit, excellent. If that doesn’t work, I would tell my mom or dad and see what they recommend. Remember that your health and happiness comes first! Be comfortable and if someone doesn’t want to be your friend on your guidelines, you don’t need them anyway!
Sincerely, – J
My boyfriend is really sweet and we have a lot of fun together but I’ve been thinking about it for a while and I just want to be friends. What’s the best way to break it off but make sure he knows I still really want to be his friend?
First off, I have to commend you on being mature enough to realize that a relationship with this boy is just not in the cards for you right now. Separating relationship from friendship can be tricky, so good for you! Now for the actual “making it happen” part – no texting or calling; this is something that should be done in person in a respectful, classy way. Tell your friend how much you enjoy his company and personality, but that right now you just need some time to be single! It shouldn’t be a big deal at all. You guys are young and free! Good luck! -J
My school dance is coming up and it’s girl’s choice, so I have to ask a guy to go with me! I have the perfect boy in mind, but I want to ask him in a creative way. Do you have any ideas of how to “wow” him? – Ally
How fun! It’s so cute how you want to do something creative. Draw on your special creativity. If you’re good with words, write a poem, art – draw a picture, singing – dedicate a song to him, baking – bake him a cake, etc. Whatever you do, I’m sure he’ll be so charmed by your thoughtfulness. Love, – J
