There is a boy in my class that I realy like but one of my good friends is his girlfriend.That friend always gets the boys.It upsets me that it is so easy for her to get a boyfriend.My mom said the reason that a lot of boys will date her because she is easy.I know that but it still makes me mad that she gets to have anyone she wants as a boyfriend.I hope she doesn't turn out that way but that is the way she is heading.Maybe one day she will notice that after the boys get what they want out of her that they want care about her anymore and they will go to the next girl that is just as easy as her.I just hope she relizes that.I don't like the way some girls and boys are becoming.Plus I hope they all know if they keep acting that way they will always be unhappy.

Wow, oh my goodness. My story is the complete other way! See, I'm a Freshmen right now and in middle school I had a boyfriend for 2years. We broke up...THen he had two girlfriends that were "easy" and I didn't have any. THen I met this amazing guy...He treats me like a doll and but has a terrible background. Anyways back to my point. My best friend had one boyfriend. They went out for about a month then another one of my friends to convince him to break up with her because she said she was easier. Crazy I know. That's the way life is though I guess.

You have a good idea to start with, but you need to work on punctuation/spelling/phrasing. Your point will be more effective once you implement a more concrete style. Think about the "voice" of your essay. Props for submitting to TeenInk!

This seems like a rather elementary realization. Being one half of a relationship is not what being in high school is all about. Do the things you enjoy before you are too preoccupied with someone else's wants and needs. Enjoy being young; enjoy being single. Love comes in time. Stop looking for it... and maybe you'll have the opportunity to grow into the person you'll need to be when you actually find it.

Dreamglider you have one of the greatest points.It was uncalled for to call my friend easy.It just seems that she does it just so other people can't get the boy.Even so it was uncalled for.Thanks for helping me relize that:-)

I'm glad you realize this. Calling your friend "easy" is uncalled for. Sometimes people search for the love they lack in the only ways they know how to. For her, maybe that one night stand is better then being alone. It's a warped kind of logic but for you to be there for her would be more then anything else you can do. Boy's are very hungry beings generally and they're at their peak when they're in their teenage years. Part of the problem is they aren't held to any morals. If we, as girls, actually did our part and demanded respect, they'd give it to us. If we give into them every single time, they learn nothing and fall deeper into the pit they have dug for themselves. It's not you. Be thankful you don't have boys all over you to compromise your dignity
