Ask Winter – Advice Column

Hey Winter,

My boyfriend’s parents hate me. What should I do?

Dear Hated,

I understand how you could feel that way but just remember that they are still human. Some parents just naturally dislike anyone who has a chance of hurting ‘their baby’. Its not necessarily your fault. Try being extra respectful, offering to help out, minding your manners as best you can, and spending some time to connect with his parents. You may find that they will like and accept you more if they know more about you.

I hope this helps 🙂





Hi Winter,

My best friend has been thinking she might be bi. The other night she asked if I’d kiss her to find out. I said no but now I feel bad. What should I do?

Dear Thinking-Twice,

Stay strong in your decision. If something makes you uncomfortable then don’t let anyone talk or convince you into doing what you don’t want to. The best thing to do is to be there for her to talk to but you’ve also got to make it very clear that you are not open for that option. Be her supporter, but have that line. Know that this may just be a phase or a sign that she may be going through something greater and more difficult to cope with. Overall, make sure you don’t treat her any differently than you ever treated her before. She needs to know that its okay to be who she truly is.

I hope this helps 🙂
