In the latest issue of Popstar Magazine, Jennette McCurdy answers questions about dealing with being cheated on, crushes and what to do about a classmate who is a fake to everyone but the teacher.
I was dating this boy and found out he was cheating on me with my best friend! Now she wants to be friends again, but I don’t know what to do, or if I can trust her anymore. What should I do? What would you do if it happened to you? – Haley
That girl is not much of a friend if she would do something like that, and neither is the boy you were dating. The good thing about someone doing something wrong by you is that you don’t have to do any work to figure out if they’re a good friend or not! Just move on and nurture friendships with people who are tried and TRUE.
I have a huge crush on my BFF’s brother. We have the same birthday and we’re both turning 15. His name is Luiz. I see him every day because I live right beside him. But here is the problem, how do I know if he likes me back? – Mikayla.
There are usually definite signs a boy puts out there if he likes you. In a room of people, does he look at you often? Does he talk to you a lot? Say sweet things? Really pay attention to see if he’s putting out that vibe. Either way, harvest a friendship with him! You can never have too many good friends.
There’s a girl in my class and she is the teacher’s favorite. Any my friends and I try to see how she does it. And I don’t get it because at lunch, she is so mean to everyone and she is a bully, but around the teacher, she is an angel. Should I tell someone when a teacher is not around? – Madison
Wow, that girl sounds really frustrating. This teacher clearly is not getting the full picture! If the angel is being a bully, bring it to an adult’s attention. STick up for yourself, be strong, and don’t stoop to her level. In class, work hard, be responsible, and tell your friends to do the same. When someone is fake and nasty, all you can do is be yourself, work hard, and rise above the frustration.
