I have never been in a relationship before. No one has ever taken the time to notice me I guess. I’m in college now, and I got my braces off over the summer before college. Now everyone is saying I look way different from high school. Even though it was a few months ago. Any ways now all these guys approach me wherever I go. Mostly guys in their 20’s and 30’s, never my age. All they want from me is one thing, sex. I want to wait until marriage, and I want a guy that respects me. However, it seems the only thing guys see in me is just another body to add to their list. I don’t know what to do? I want a relationship not just a fling.
If you want a relationship and not a fling then a relationship you shall have. When I entered college I began to also notice older men showing interest in me. I didn’t know how to deal with it either at first. I soon learned that I was in complete control over myself and the guys I chose to let into my life.
If you want men to respect you, you have to respect yourself by setting a standard for yourself. Guys will only show respect to you as far as you ask for it. It isn’t always in what you say it is in how you carry yourself and the morals and values you set for yourself. You seem like you have some strong ones so I am sure that you will be fine.
Don’t give into the pressures of sex. It won’t be easy, but if you don’t want to just become another number on someone’s list then don’t! Keep yourself for marriage as you said you wanted to. I did, so I know you can too! Keep God in your life, and it will all work out!
And good for you for being awesome!
Ps. Here is a video that I produced for a woman with a struggle somewhat related to your situation:
I am in middle school, and I have a boyfriend,. but I’m not sure what to say to compliment him. What are some good compliments that guys like to hear? Also, how am I supposed to react after he gives me a compliment? Am I supposed to compliment him back or just say thanks? This would be so helpful!!
Hey Jewels and Gems!
I received an email this morning that really touched my heart. I decided to share my response to a viewer who shared her miscarriage story with me. She basically thanked me for sharing mines, and expressed her pain of going through this situation.
Feel free to share this with someone who needs it or will be encouraged by it. I am sharing this because I believe it may help someone else:
Here are a collection of some of the maternity clothes that I have collected over the past few months! Hopefully, it will help you get some ideas of how you might dress in your pregnancy! If you are not pregnant you can just have fun with me as I showcase my closet!
19 Week Update
Hello Jewels and Gems,
It has been a while since I have brought you a Celebrity Tuesday, and this one is close to my heart.
I was so sad this past weekend when I heard that Whitney Houston’s daughter, 21-year-old Bobbi Kristina Brown was found face down unresponsive in a tub. According to police spokeswoman, Lisa Holland, Bobbi Kristina was found “unresponsive, meaning not breathing, no heartbeat.” Bobbi Kristin’s husband, Nick Gordon, and a friend found her facedown in their Georgia home, around 10:20am last Saturday morning. Gordon began CPR until paramedics arrived, but it is unclear how long she went without oxygen.
She is currently in a medically induced comma, breathing through a ventilator. The extent of her brain function will not be know until the medical sedatives are reduced. Her immediate family has been by her bedside.
This comes at a crucial time for Bobbi Kristina, as it occurred so close to the three year anniversary of the death of her mother Whitney Houston. Whitney was found dead in a tub, almost exactly a three years ago, just shy of two weeks to-the-day, in a Beverly Hills hotel. Her death occurred on the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards where she was scheduled to perform.
Bobbi Kristina idolized her mother and also looked forward to growing a career in entertainment. Our prayers are with her family.
Her father, Bobbi Brown released this statement this past Sunday: “Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time.”
I was devastated by this news, as I have been watching Bobbi Kristina grow up, standing and at times performing with her mother on stage. I have been a huge Whitney Houston fan since I was a little girl. Man, I really hope Bobbi Kristina recovers and make it through this. Hospital officials will not comment on her condition at this time.
Thankfully, there have not been any ties to drug abuse at this time, and investigators are still looking into how Bobbi Kristina ended up in the bathtub.
My advice, during times of crisis like this it is important for families to band together and support each other. I hope and pray that Bobbi Kristina will learn from her parents mistakes, and not end up picking up their bad habits.
Let’s send up our prayers for Bobbi Kristina.

I haven’t had my first kiss. I’m just the type of person who over thinks and I’m not quite sure how to kiss someone. I know first kisses might be over rated but I just want my to be something I won’t be embarrassed about. Thanks for everything hope you can answer soon.
I know that everyone makes you feel like you have to have your first kiss by a certain time in order for you to be cool or accepted. However, don’t let the peer pressure get to you. You are not defined by your age when it comes to something as special as your first kiss. When it is time for it to happen it will. However, I do think you are putting a little too much pressure on it. It shouldn’t be treated as a chore! It should be fun and spontaneous. You learn most of it in the moment.
I Hope This Helps!
