Marian: Try to evaluate all the factors in this situation first before you go ahead and stress yourself out. Do you really, really like this guy? Is this guy really into you? Is this guy really worth whatever consequences might transpire throughout your relationship or after your relationship? Why would you even want to start a relationship with this person if you're already anticipating a break-up in the future?
Daniela: Well, first of all, are the feelings between the two of you mutual? If it is, sit down with him and have a talk if both of you are willing to work this out. Think about the different possible outcomes. Are you willing to risk your friendship for this?
"I've been liking this guy for more than three years now and he doesn't know I exist, but every time he dates someone else, I can't help but feel hurt. I can't do shit about it so what the hell should I do."
Marian: Try to go for the triple D: Disconnect from him, Distract yourself, and try your hardest to Disregard him.
Daniela: Dear, if you have the guts to befriend this man and be close to him, then hey, go for it. Try to build a bond with this guy on the friendship level first, because maybe later on, you might find some flaws in him that would turn you off. If he's "unreachable," then, I guess you have to try to detach yourself from him and forget about him. Try to find someone else.
"I'm an incoming freshman at the University of the Philippines and I'll be starting school really soon. I'm really excited to start a new life after high school but the thing that scares me the most is the culture shock I will experience. I was sheltered by my parents and I came from a all-girls' catholic school, so I'm really afraid of what I'll be experiencing considering that UP is known as the melting pot of ALL things good and bad."
Marian: Starting college is an extremely new experience for all freshmen, so never think that you're alone with that dilemma. I would suggest to just go with the flow, absorb your surroundings, and try to understand what's going on around you. Just make sure you never forget to follow and stand by the things you believe in and hold dear when making new decisions and actions.
Daniela: College is a whole new environment and I understand how anxious you might be feeling. Remember that you're not alone- there's at least a thousand of you whose hearts are beating fast upon entering the UP Campus. Don't rush into things and take things one step at a time. Be open to try out new stuff, but be responsible with your actions.
