10 General Tips for High School Girls ...

By Melanie

I went through four years of high school and I learned to deal with things. Being in high school is fun, but at the same time, it isn’t fun. It isn’t fun when all those fun things come crashing down. Do you know what I mean? When you’re in high school, you are constantly judged for who you are, you are talked about, you are loved and you are hated. So, what is right and what is wrong? The right thing would be what you want and the wrong thing would be what you do not want. Below, I am going to give you 10 general tips for high school girls …

10 Don’t Date Your Best Friend

Okay, I have never personally dated my best friend, but I have known people who have. If you date your best friend, you will be setting yourself up for losing that person forever. If your relationship does not work out, then you may no longer have them as your best friend. Are you prepared for that?

9 Don’t Dress Trashy

Sometimes, girls dress trashy just to get attention. In my opinion, this would be the wrong type of attention. Guys who are drawn to this type of stuff are no good. However, if they are drawn to you when you are wearing clothes that are not revealing, then you have a higher chance of the guy being respectful. Does this make sense to you?

If you’re not ready to lose your virginity or you have second thoughts of doing it, then you shouldn’t do it. Guys will say “If you don’t do it, then you don’t love me.” They will try everything in their book to try to get in your pants, trust me on this one. Then, when they get it, they will take it and leave it. Sure, your boyfriend would never do this, but you may not know him. He may be a player. If the guy isn’t after that, then he won’t be trying to get in your pants all the time. However, you also need to watch out for those sneaky types. You know, the guys who feed you all the right words. Point blank, just don’t let your guard down.

7 Don’t do Drugs or Alcohol

Drugs and alcohol should be avoided. Besides, you aren’t the legal drinking age until you hit 21, right? So, you shouldn’t be doing it. Just say no!

6 Be Careful Who You Hang out with

You should choose your friends wisely. Getting mixed up in the wrong crowd is no good. You will do things that you never thought you would do before.

5 Don’t Let People Bother You

If people talk about you, don’t let it bother you. Don’t run to the bathroom all the time crying your eyes out. This is what those bullies want. Smile when they’re around. Show that you are enjoying life. If you continue getting upset over them, then they will continue doing what they do. They only bother you because they know it bothers you and the game never gets old, until it doesn’t bother you.

4 Don’t do Something Just to Be Popular

Some people do things just so they can be popular. If you can’t see yourself doing it or you have second thoughts of doing it, then don’t do it. I’m not going to hint around the bush here, I’m talking about flashing yourself in a crowd, going down on a guy or any of that other wild stuff. Don’t do it just so you can get up there in popularity.

3 Don’t Pretend to Be Someone You Know You Aren’t

If you are not a cheerleader, then don’t pretend to be one. If you are not a loud girl in class, then don’t pretend to be one. If you do not like to have an adrenaline rush, then don’t pretend to be an adrenaline junkie.

2 Don’t Change Yourself for Someone

So, the crowd you are hanging out with believes that you should change yourself. They believe you should start sneaking out at night, having more fun and skipping school. Don’t change yourself. If someone wants you to change yourself, then you’ll do better in life without them.

1 Don’t Set Yourself up for a Broken Heart

I’m telling you now, in high school, if you literally give your boyfriend everything you have, then you are setting yourself up for a broken heart. Don’t ditch your friends over the boy every single time. Don’t ignore your friends because of him. Don’t make his friends your friends and don’t give him your all. Sure, give him attention, but at the same time, give him space. Don’t become so reliant on him that if you lose him, you’ll sink into a deep depression. High school is full of broken hearts. Sure, you may say you’re different, but in five months, when he gets tired of you, I don’t want to say “I told you so …”

Many adults will tell you that high school is about school work and getting good grades. However, I am not going to tell you this. I believe that high school is also about friends, football games, late night talks on the phone and yes, of course, boys. However, you should take it all responsibly and don’t get too carried away with it. Every single thing you do in high school will be in your memories. You only go to high school one time in your life and you do not want to ruin it. Once you do it, there is no going back. So, if you do it right, you can look back and smile, instead of frown. Do you need any advice on a particular subject?
