Dear Macey And Millie

The first bell has rung, school has started… And we’re all still as clueless as ever. Not only do none of us know how quantum physics work or comment parler Français, but we have other problems, too! We also don’t know why John isn’t texting us back, or why girls have mistaken their underwear for shorts. We know that you have all these questions and more…. And that’s why we’re here!

We’re Macey and Millie (hypothetically), and we’ll try our best to answer your questions and give you advice on any subject… Other than physics and French.

Dear Macey and Millie,
I have a problem! There’s this guy I’m into, who is a really great guy to me, but when he’s with everyone else he’s just awful and mean! He said he doesn’t want other people to know the real him. He’s a couple of years older than me too, but he seems really into me. I don’t know, Is this a toxic relationship I’m getting into?
-A Worried Soul

Dear Miss Worried,
Millie here. I’ve had about as many toxic relationships as I have had zombie encounters, gang fights and trips to Mars…Which is to say: none. But in my extremely limited experience with the male species, I would say one thing works 99.9% of the time: Going with your gut.
If you think he really likes you, test it out, and see how the relationship works for a few days. But if the thought of getting close to him sends your stomach on the Tilt-a-Whirl (and not in a good way), then I would let things cool down majorly. Your gut instinct is there for a reason- use it!

Dear Worried Soul,
Well… my relationship knowledge consists of one time in the 5th grade (he held my hand on the playground!). I would be very cautious. He may be only nice to you because he wants something from you. This might not be the case, so if he really makes you happy, I would go for it!

That’s all for now, folks. It takes a lot out of a person to help people with problems they have never had to deal with. Ever. So keep the questions coming in, and remember, no matter how clueless you think you are, you can never be as bad as us.
