features the elegantly exotic ethnic look.

I'm a 15-year-old boy. I'm interested in a girl whose family
runs a CD shop. I've seen her there many times. I don't have her
phone number but I found out her mother's cell phone number and
sent her some SMS messages. I never got a reply. Please tell me
what I should do?
Well, sending SMS messages to
her mother's cell won't get you anywhere. The next time you see
her at the shop, slip her a note or try to talk to her. Of course,
there's no guarantee that she'll respond to your advances but if
you truly like her, it's worth a try. Good luck!
Put an end
I'm a 19-year-old boy. I've fallen in love with my mother's
younger brother's daughter. She's 16. I want to tell her I love
her but I can't say it because I know it will create problems if
we were to get married, as we're blood relations. She is my first
love and I can't forget her. She's very cute and kind. I really
love her. Please help me.
Dear Broken Soul,
It's true you love her and all that but you know the complications
that will arise. So why get yourself and this girl into such a mess.
It's better to put an end to your feelings now rather than later.
The closer you get to a person, the more it hurts. Right now she
knows next to nothing about your feelings. You and only you can
spare her the pain that will inevitably follow this relationship.
Think about it. It's not just parental objections that you'll have
to face. Your future happiness depends on it.
I'm a 17-year-old boy. I had an affair with a girl who is three
years younger than me. One day we stayed out till late and as a
result she got caught to her mother. The next day they visited our
place and after that we couldn't communicate with each other. I
can't forget her. I really need her. What can I do?
She's too young to be staying out till late. No wonder her
parents were mad. You should be taking care of her and not be the
cause of her troubles. Maybe this separation would do both of you
some good. You don't have to forget her. Try to be more responsible
and mature. If you do, you might even win her parents over. If you
truly love her, now is the time to make a few sacrifices. Be patient.
Until her parents know they can trust her, she won't get as much
freedom as she received earlier. Isn't there any way of communicating
with her? Can't you get one of your cousin sisters to call her up
or pass a message through a mutual friend? Just let her know that
you're there for her and haven't deserted her at the first sign
of trouble. If you both take things slow and easy, in a couple of
years you might even be able to resume your relationship.
I'm in love with a boy who is 18. He used to live near our
house but now they have shifted so I don't get to see him. Sometimes
he shows me that he likes me. But I'm not sure. I really would like
to know how he feels about me. Please help me find out whether he
likes me or not.

You could give him a call and check out his response or send
a letter explaining how you feel. If you don't want to make the
first move, then get to know him as a friend. Try to find the classes
or social events that he attends. Make it a point to bump into him,
accidentally of course, and start a conversation like 'Didn't you
live down our road...' When the friendship grows, give him subtle
signs to show that you're interested. Of course, the other option
is to ask him directly and then you'll know where you stand right
