Let's Talk

Give Us Your Opinion:

"Give Us Your Opinion" is here so you can share experiences regarding a specific situation. We will post as many answers as we can in "Read What Other Girls Say". This is to help other girls your age. Only your comments will be posted, not your name.

Important Note: If you are in crisis or have a medical problem, please do not post a message here. For immediate help call 911, the operator or go to the nearest Emergency Room. Call your health care provider, a health clinic or an emergency room for medical problems.

Has this happened to you?
A girl you never took much notice of becomes one of the best friends you've had. It can be such pleasant surprise to discover a new relationship, especially one you almost overlooked. Has this happened to you? If so, tell us about your experience. It could help others.

Read What Other High School Girls Say:
More high school young women answered our surveys than any other group! Here's what you said:
When overwhelmed or stresses... Most high schoolers expressed their feelings after going off by themselves. 25% talked about it. We wonder if this means that young women are developing resources within themselves to take care of themselves...or is it just difficult to reach out at a time like this?
When upset... Those who answered the survey feel more comfortable sharing feelings with a parent about a touching movie than about a bad day they are having. Who can you talk to when you're having a bad day? About mom and dad... Most high schoolers jump at the chance to go to the mall when your mother invites you, and will lend your dad N'SYNC's latest CD if he shows interest.
