Talking to Tara & Trell

Dear Tara and Trell,

I’ve been in a relationship for six months, and my boyfriend won’t follow me on any social networks.  I followed him and I noticed he doesn’t post anything about me or our relationship.  Should I feel some type of way?

-Feeling like a secret

 

Thank you so much for your question.

Personally, I don’t post any of my relationship business on any social networks. However, I don’t understand why your boyfriend won’t follow you.  I do believe in a relationship where you are allowed to have privacy.  I wouldn’t stress out too much over the whole social network thing.  If it’s bothering you that much, you should have a serious talk with your boyfriend and let him know how you’re feeling.  Hope this helps! xoxo

P.S. You aren’t a secret! 🙂

Dear Tara and Trell.

My friend has been in a relationship with someone who has a girlfriend for two years. She won’t date or think about anyone else.  When I try to tell her she should move on she gets upset and calls me jealous.  I’ve thought about confronting the guy to let him know he’s destroying my friend’s life.  What would you do?

-a concerned friend

 

Wow!  Thank you for seeking advice before confronting the guy.  This is a hard situation because, as a friend, you understand you just want what’s best for your friend.  However, I do believe you should just let her live her life.  If she’s happy with the way things are going in her relationship, all you should do is support her decision.  If it doesn’t work out and she hits rock bottom, don’t say “I told you so.” Just be the friend that you would want to have.  I wish you and your friend continued happiness!

xoxo

Dear Tara and Trell,

My sister and I don’t have a great relationship, how can we get closer?

-Family oriented

 

Have you ever heard the proverb, “Blood is thicker than water?” It’s so true!  Through everything in life, I believe it’s very important to have a strong relationship with family members, if possible.  I have a sister, and we’re two and a half years apart. We used to argue all the time.  It’s normal.  Giving each other space will help.  You two will always be sisters, so I understand why you want to get closer to her.  Dinner and drinks are a great way to bond.  I hope things get better for both of you.  Never give up. Remember: family always comes first!

Dear Tara and Trell

With midterms approaching, what are some study tips?

-Stressed already

Whew, Thanks for the reminder!  With midterms slowly, but surely approaching, the number one tip we can give you is: don’t cram!  Try taking short breaks between studying, and don’t forget to eat. Making sure you eat is an important factor.  Whenever midterms are over and you still want to get ahead or need help, visit our many tutoring labs covering English, writing, and math. Good Luck on your Midterms!

xoxo
