Don't wanna hurt.

Is it weird to not like boys? I think guys are cute, but I'm afraid if I were to go out with one, I'd get hurt like my friends and sister have. It seems every time a friend's relationship is going great, all of a sudden there's a breakup.

Dear Don't Wanna Hurt,

It's understandable that you fear getting hurt. Still, it's OK to opt out now, but don't opt out forever. Real relationships are worth it--even if this means getting a little burned along the way. Someday, a guy might seem worth the effort of pursuit and the risk of heartache. But it's sensible to skip the middle-school drama and wait for the boys to mature. For now, focus on friends, family, studies, activities and yourself. If you do develop a crush, a good way to protect yourself from too much hurt is to keep your life in balance and not obsess over him 24/7.
