You can submit concerns either in the library, or via the online submission box below. All submissions are anonymous, and we respond to them as often as we get them!
Submission: How do I get a boyfriend?
Relationships are one of those things that you can’t be looking for to find. To more easily find a boyfriend, you can keep an open mind and be less judgemental. The saying “good things come to those who wait,” is exemplified by this question. There is nothing wrong with meeting new people, and if that’s something you’re interested in doing, don’t dismiss someone because of their looks, or based off of what you’ve heard.
Getting out and doing things will increase your chances of meeting someone instead of remaining at home. There are a ton of people you can meet everywhere, such as the mall or a party. Also, while you’re out try to be a sociable person. Do not isolate yourself on the phone. I remember in 9th grade I read a story where a man was completely absorbed in his phone and missed out on a girl who was showing signs she was into him. This situation could have been avoided if both lived in the real moment and were open to meeting new people.
Another way to meet people other than in real life, is actually social media. Be safe with this option though because you can possibly by catfished. There are many apps that are specifically made for the intent to meet someone which can potentially find you a significant other.
Don’t stress too much about finding someone at this age anyway. School is the main focus at the moment. If you’re worried about finding someone, you basically have your whole life to. Rushing will just lead you to the wrong people.
