Dating advice


Get to know the person first before going on first dates and further dates. For me, it was like a roller coaster that wouldn’t stop.

  1. Don’t rush into sex.
  2. Go on double dates with friends and value their opinion.
  3. Never hook up online – yes it’s easier to talk over a keyboard but you have no idea who your talking.
  4. Don’t feel like you need to wear makeup/ fancy clothes on your first date – be comfortable.
  5. Meet each other’s parents – it shows how serious you are and it’s respectful.
  6. Don’t wait for he/she to ask you out, this is the 21st century – take charge.
  7. The common interest is a good thing.
  8. Pressure from the other is not – run as fast as you can hun!
  9. Have dates in public places – its neutral ground.
  10. Be mature – don’t date someone if you’re going to play games to make another person.
  11. Be honest with each other.
  12. Trust is an important foundation.
  13. If they make you laugh, it’s a good start.
  14. There’s no shame in playing the field as long as you’re not playing someone else.

10 ways to eliminate girl hate.

Is your school a bit like the Mean Girls movie? If the answer is yes, then you might want to have a peep at this list of ways to bond with your fellow females because in this day and WE need to present a united front.

  1. Cut back on social media – The more you see of someone else’s life online it can lead to jealousy, so just remember that social media profiles are heavily edited and sometimes life isn’t always perfect.
  2. If you really want to critique someone on their behaviour then do it face to face – that way you present yourself as mature and remember to say something positive about them at the end of your talk.
  3. Join societies like Girl Guides where it teaches you how to work as a team, sorting your own issues and making a positive impact.
  4. Take someone under your wing and show that school isn’t all about cliques. Invite them to go bowling with a group of friends or even a poetry reading! Don’t leave a person out, you may think you don’t like them but half the time you don’t know them properly and you end up judging them on their social media or their fashion sense, sexuality or their attitudes towards recreational drugs or even perhaps their vegan lifestyle. People have many layers don’t just look at one aspect of their personality look at them as a whole person.
  5. If you have an issue with someone they don’t go at each other face to face on social media – do it face to face as messages are hard to interpret if you don’t know the person’s body language and attitude fully. Maybe a teacher could be a mediator? Or a neutral friend who is less likely to take sides.
  6. Encourage body celebrating instead of body shaming. Fashion gives people the freedom to express themselves and whilst you could say, ‘that’s not quite your colour/shape’ help them out! Fashion can be a little daunting. There is no right size to be either.
  7. Attend a women’s rally together – nothing brings girls together more than a cause to fight.
  8. Join clubs with other girls who have the same interests as you like a book club or debate team.
  9. Boys/girls are not worth falling out over.
  10. Just try and be open minded remembering that people come from all walks of life and share your different experiences! It may help you in the future. There’s no better way to forge a friendship with someone who’s going through the same things as you.
