Let's Talk: Boyfriend Dilemmas

Hey everyone! I thought I would start a little 'Let's Talk' series where I talk about problems that we face as girls and other relatable things (hopefully). 
Just a tip, these posts will be all about expressing opinions and all that slightly deeper stuff, so if that doesn't float your boat, this series might not be for you.

So, as you may have picked up from my 'Dear 12 year old me' post, I have recently acquired a boyfriend. WOOOOHHH!!! 
This is a big deal for me, as I used to get really worried that I would never get asked out, and that I would wind up sad and forever alone. Well girls, let me tell you that this is not the case - not for me, and not for any of you! You are all beautiful and perfect in your own ways, and there is a guy out there who sees it. And I know this sounds really cliche, but you should never change for a guy! If he likes you for who you pretend to be and not who you actually are, things will never work out well, because you can't pretend forever.

Also, let me tell you from experience, that having a boyfriend is difficult. Maybe not for everyone, but for me, he's another (wonderful) thing for me to juggle. Mainly because I now have two different friendship groups, and my best friend is very clingy (but I still love her to bits) and she always wants me to sit with her group. It sounds so trivial, I know, but it's more difficult than it sounds!

And there's always that one friend who is secretly jealous of all the couples around her, but she is too proud to say this, so instead she says that she will always be forever alone and she wouldn't want it any other way. (Never be too proud to say what you think guys, it just makes things worse!)
I had a friend come up to me yesterday (she is the proudest person I know, and honestly, it gets really annoying), and she asked me if I was sick of all the hugs from my boyfriend yet, because she didn't like all the couples around her when she didn't have a boyfriend. Yeah, she basically asked me if I wanted to break up with him so that she wouldn't feel so left out!
Side note: this girl had been asked out by one of our friends earlier that day, but she said no.

Just in case I suggested otherwise, I do love my boyfriend, he is the best thing that has happened to me this year!

So that's all I have for today, as I am in the middle of exams (nooooooo!!!), but please leave your thoughts about this post down below, or maybe even things you struggle with if you have/have had a boyfriend (maybe I could do a part 2?)
Also, what do you think of this Let's Talk series? Do you guys think it's a good idea? Feel free to leave suggestions for future posts, because I'm gonna run out some day!

Lots of love, Little Robin



  1. This is such a good idea! I'm glad you're enjoying your boyfriend, and it's pretty mean what the girl said to you. Surely she wouldn't like it if you told her that. This has definetely given me more confidence. I'm twelve (sorry...maybe I shouldn't be speaking about this) and sometimes I feel like boys think I'm ugly. Or you only have to be pretty and popular to have a boyfriend. Or you only have to be pretty and popular to get a good looking boyfriend...Is that true?

    I'd LOVE a part 2 to this!

    Thank you so much for joining NerdBuZZ, your group should start thinking of a name :D

    1. And when I say pretty, I mean really pretty.

    2. Aww, thank you for sticking up for me, but it's ok - after all, this series is all about sharing our own opinions and experiences.
      I'm so glad this has given you confidence, I never thought my blog could do that! :D
      In my opinion, there's no measure for beauty and no such thing as popularity. It's just the name that is given to the largest group of kids in a school. So no, I don't think that it's true, but I used to feel exactly the same way from about year 8 to 10 (now). So don't worry, there's someone out there for you, you just haven't found him yet!
      Little Robin xoxo

  2. I don't mean to offend you in anyway but I find it surprising girls at 12 have boyfriends. It's weird to me. I am 18 now and no boy-friend.
    I am happy that you are happy. thats what counts!

    1. Haha, no I would never have a boyfriend at 12, but I'm actually 15 now :)
      My Dear 12 year old me post was kind of like me looking back at my mistakes and telling my younger self what not to do
      Some people say I look 12 tho, because I'm short!
