Ask Amy: Teen besties might not be a good match

Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I am very upset. I have a best friend, “Lizzie.”

Lizzie and I have been best friends since we attended daycare together, and now we are juniors in high school.

Lizzie has always been bossy. She wants things to be her way.

Lately, it has gotten bad.

Lizzie only hangs out with me and gets mad if I hang with other people.

So now it's always just the two of us.


But that's not the worst part. She has been trying to "jokingly" hold my hand and cuddle.

I don’t want this. I don't know what to say to her. I just walk away and make up an excuse to go somewhere else.

We're both girls, which is fine, but this is not me.

I am into guys. I don't want everyone at school thinking I don't like guys when they see us together.
