when it comes down to it, its your life. you’re the one taking the classes, doing the homework, and learning the language, not your dad. yes, your parents do have a say in that kind of stuff but i think you should be able to have the last word. my advice would just be to try to explain to him why you want to take russian and make it clear that its your decision in the end. and even if he does forbid you taking russian, you could always learn it later in life. things will work out one way or the other
my advice is to take a break from your life. it sounds like you’re constantly stressed and overwhelmed. i think taking a break, whether its for a day or a whole week, would help you clear your mind a little bit. hopefully it’ll help you figure out where you want to go from here. if you think things with the current guy will eventually work out, keep at it. trying letting walls down little by little by sharing small things with him and eventually you’ll feel more comfortable letting him in even more. but if you don’t feel like its going to work out in the end i would break up with him. its stressing you out and sometimes you have to put yourself first
he sounds so sweet! it sounds to me like he likes you too. definitely text him more! you should also try to hang out with him sometime, even if its not one-on-one. you can do that for as long as you want and hopefully he’ll tell you he likes you and will ask you out, but if he seems hesitant don’t be afraid to just tell him how you feel. something really good could come of it :) let me know how it goes!
just talk to him a lot! also make sure to compliment him, guys love to hear that kind of stuff. it doesn’t have to be anything really cheesy. and if you want you could ask him to hang out sometime even if its not one-on-one. oh, and one of the biggest things is that if he flirts with you, DON’T be afraid to flirt back. if you aren’t responsive to his flirting he’ll think that you aren’t interested. i don’t know, i’m kinda awkward and noncommittal when it comes to guys and i always seem to get my point across in the most roundabout ways so my advice may not be stellar. but i hope it at least helps a little bit!
sometimes we fall for the people we never thought we would. and sometimes we don’t fall for the people who we always saw ourselves with. the point is that you can’t fake feelings. it wouldn’t be fair to the guy who likes you and seems perfect if you led him on when you don’t have any real feelings for him. my advice is to go with your heart tells you (as corny as it may sound) and go for the other guy
just because he doesn’t want a relationship doesn’t mean that he doesn’t like you. its natural to want to take a break from girls after a breakup. my advice is to just keep doing what you’re doing. if you guys keep talking i can think of two scenarios (both are good) 1. he changes his mind and realizes that he does want a relationship. this happens all the time. and then you’re right there for him to ask out :) 2. he doesn’t want a relationship but you guys remain friends. this would be the worse of the two options but from what you’ve told me about him he still sounds like a great guy to have in your life even if you aren’t dating.
well that is definitely something that could ruin someone’s night. as for your crush, i would operate under the belief that he’s innocent until proven guilty. as hard as it may seem, i would try not to pass any judgment on him because no one knows the whole story. but its still important to figure out what really happened. its also important to proceed with caution. even if your crush didn’t do steal the jewelry, he hangs out with the people who did, which is something to keep in mind.
