Heartbreaker.

When boys ask me out, I always say no. It's because I don't like anyone that much and don't need all that drama in my life. My friends think I should start dating so they always make fun of me about it, which makes me feel awkward and upset. How can I let the boys down in a way that won't hurt their feelings?

Dear Heartbreaker,

It's perfectly OK to say a sweet, "No, but thank you anyway," with zero explanation, or, "Thanks, but I don't want to date anyone right now." If you're not comfortable being so direct, you can let a guy down gently and tell him that your parents won't let you date. No need to swear off boys forever, but it's admirable that you listen to your heart rather than to other girls' opinions. When friends jeer or push, remind yourself that their immaturity is their problem and not yours.
