Ask Jolene

Need an answer? Comfort? Reassurance? Encouragement? Anything at all? Don’t worry because I am here for you.

Hi Jolene, how do you tell a girl you like her but you are just not in a place in your life to start dating?

Well, first of all, does this girl like you? If she does, then simply let her know how you feel and explain your motives as to why you feel this way. Sometimes girls just want to know exactly what is going on instead of being kept in the dark. If you do not let her know for sure how you feel, you can accidentally lead her on and hurt her. I recommend you just continue to be her friend unless she brings the topic up, then talk to her about it.

Best of luck to you!

Hello Jolene, how do you handle stress? Now that we are getting closer to the end of the semester, I find it more difficult to deal with stress. What do you do?

The way in which I deal with stress changes depending on my situation. Drinking tea is definitely one of the best ways to de-stress. Try not to procrastinate and leave everything for the last minute, which is what everyone tends to do. If you are overwhelmed, watch a movie or a television show that makes you feel better, while your eating favorite snacks, of course! Be sure to get enough sleep in order to alleviate any extra stress or anxiety. I notice that when I have not slept a lot, I tend to be more anxious and cranky.

Best of luck in these last four weeks! Hang in there!

Hello Jolene, what should I do about professors adding me on social media?

I personally do not see anything wrong with professors adding you on social media. If you feel like your social media is not professor appropriate, then I would not recommend adding them back. However, if your social media is appropriate, then I think its fine to add them back. The choice is up to you though.

I wish you the best of luck!

I hope you enjoy what I have to say, and please remember to continue to ask questions! Remember, I am here for you. Now to leave you, a little thought to keep in mind:

Never ever settle for less than you deserve.

Your favorite girl,
