- Ask Andy
ANDY'S ANSWER: The whole reason there is drama is because your priority is to "get a boyfriend". What's wrong with just being friends and having fun in the company of the people you like without turning it into some kind daytime soap opera plot?
Personally, I think that teens are missing out on their best socializing opportunities by thinking that a boy-girl friendship has to be a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship. After that happens, everyone starts putting rules and expectations in place for each other because they are "in a relationship", which inevitably someone will not follow, or will be unhappy with and that's when all the misery of a breakup comes in, yada, yada yada.
You have your whole life to be in a serious exclusive relationship with someone. There will be a whole less drama if you concentrate on just enjoying your friendships , no matter what sex they happen to be.
