"Listen To Bubby" | Session #1
For those of you who have ever doubted whether this is a "real grandma"... your doubting days are over.
7 lucky letter writers will be hearing something that no one else on this blog has heard before -- Bubby's advice in audio format! That's right... Instead of typing out her advice, Bubby has made special audio recordings for her readers. Keep visiting over the next two weeks to hear them all.
Dear Miss Bubby, where do I begin?
Well, I am 15 years old, already, and I have never had a boyfriend. There, I said it.
I have eczema and always wonder if that had something to do with it. But you get over these things eventually. I am constantly wondering whether there is something wrong with me. It is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all... how true.
I used to have lots of friends so it never bothered me that I was unattractive. When someone was there for me I felt invincible. Now my friendships have expired, I don't know what happened... This is the age where people get lives, jobs, relationships...
I want to grow up, be my own person, and most of all, I don't want to be lonely anymore. But something is holding me back inside.
Listen to Bubby's advice to you as an wmv file (windows media player) or mp3 file.
This was recorded just for you!

You're hardly pathetic! I did not date until I was a 19 year old woman and when I did, WOW! Was I glad!

I remember being 15 and thinking that too and it made me so sad. On my 16th b-day I asked G-d for a boyfriend and did NOT get one, and I thought I would never get one. On my 17th b-day I asked G-d AGAIN and this time he/she sent me one (maybe to shut me up ;) and then on y 18th b-day I BEGGED G-d to take him back!!
sometimes it isn't time and being happy where you are is the best choice to make. When you do get a boyfriend, make sure it is because you like him AND HE IS NICE TO YOU, not just because you don't want to not have one (when it feels like everyone else does).
Enjoy "before" you met him... that way you won't regret having wasted the freedom to just be "you"... once you are a couple, your life is different, you need to do what both of you want and make all your choices together, you might miss the days you could just make your choices for you. Enjoy now, now, and then you can enjoy later when it comes.
AND YES YOU WILL HAVE ONE AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY TOGETHER... but sometimes you'll ask G-d to take him back too! :) :) :)
