I Like Her - Her Sister Hates Me
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Male
Ok, so, theres this girl I work with, she's 15, i'm 17. She helped me out when I was really depressed, and we got to know eachother quite well. So just recently, I got up the guts to tell her how much she means to me, and I waz amazed when she said she has felt the same way for even longer than I have.
The problem is her sister is the manager. She knows my older brother and let's just say she doesn't approve of him in any way. But I am nothing like my brother, i've learned from his mistakes. Well she's judging me off of him, and she doesn't want me to get close to her sister. She has no idea how well Her sister and I understand eachother. She keeps me there late just so I can't give her a ride home. She is really nice, but she just wont give me a chance.
what should I do??
The only way to get someone to really understand you and trust you is to build a relationship with them. I'm not talking a romantic relationship - I'm talking a friendly relationship. Talk to her. Spend time with her. Show her that you are your own person and that you are unique. Make sure you mention to her the ways in which you disapprove of your boyfriend. Mention that it would be unfair to judge a person based on their relatives' behavior.
