Reign: Summer flings aren't really a bad thing so why not see where you relationship with the guy goes and take it from there? It doesn't have to be full-on committed relationship if you don't want it to be. In the meantime, you guys can just have fun and hang out together then just go with the flow.
Anna: One thing I know about summer flings is that they often then not don't end in the summer. It obviously works if you're never going to see that guy again (like when you're abroad or something). If this guy lives in the same city or whatever, you should really take a good sit and think about him. You think you have something going with him, so why end it at the end of summer?
"I found out that something really bad happened to a "friend" but we're not close and I'm not in the position to really say anything about it because somebody just told me, but what happened was messed up and I want to take action. What do I do?"
Reign: If what happened was really serious and bad, then you should talk to your friend. Voice out your opinion because it might help him/her. Don't be afraid just because you're not close enough; if you want to help your friend, then go. But if he/she tells you to butt out of the issue then you have to respect that.
Anna: Talk to that person and tell him/her your intentions because if you go head-on with this without consulting them, it could snowball into something worse than the original problem.
"So I really really like this guy I know but my friends keep telling me he's a douche but I don't see it. They keep telling me bad things about him but whenever I'm with that guy, I don't feel the same way as they do. Help??"
Reign: Your friends are just looking out for you, but you are allowed to form your own opinion about the guy. You could prove your friends wrong if you think the guy turns out to be nice and all but I suggest you get to know him more before you jump into conclusions.
Anna: I get that a lot from my friends but eventually it all boils down to you. You know him better because of the amount of time you spend with him, however, you are also blinded with affection, thus neglecting his short comings. Listen to your friends but try your hardest not to dwell on their words before you start nitpicking at all his faults. The next time you see him, notice what your friends tell you and weigh it out, whether they're exaggerating or not.
