Hey M Girls!
We have a BRAND NEW spin on the daily advice column on mmm-mag.com. Each day at 8:00 PM/EST we'll post a reader question and have our M Girl answer it!! Today, we're talking what to do when you feel like your crush is hiding from you!!
M Reader JLBBHISH asked: I like this guy and he just got braces. He posted that on his Facebook, so I sent him a message asking what colors he got. Well, he hasn't answered me yet -- it's been about a week. Is he ignoring me or is he just embarrassed? He's also ignoring me whenever I say hi to him! I just don't understand!
And M Girl's answer is: "I got braces when I was in 7th grade and the first thing I remember is how embarrassed I was to go to school with them on that day. I didn't want to smile, laugh, or do anything that might show any part of my teeth. Even though it might not have been a big deal to anyone else, I was still so insecure about them. But some time just had to pass before I got used to having braces. After that, I wasn't so insecure anymore and I would laugh freely. I think he just needs time to get used to them. Don't think that he's ignoring you or that he's mad at you -- he may just feel like a fool around you now that he has braces on! (Psst! He may totally like you, too. I mean come on, to get braces and know that the girl you like immediately noticed them? He's probably too shy to talk about them with you!) But not to worry, he'll come around sooner or later!"
