Comment if u can relate!!
BFF 1: Bella
BFF 2: Diane
Mean/Nice Girl: Raina
Raina has done many mean things in the past. Like,she told me and Diane to walk past Bella in the halls without talking to her. She also said to ignore her and not play with her. Then,we became friends again! But it wasn't over...
Raina got into a fight with Bella and told my friend Diane that she started a group chat called Boo Bella. She got in trouble later,but now she is friends with us AGAIN. But I don't want to be her friend,but at the same time I do.

Don't be friends with her if she does mean things to your other friend. Don't be her friend if she does mean things to anybody! That behavior is toxic, and can only lead down a road of drama and other unwanted things. It is your decision however, but from what you told in your post she sounds obnoxious.

Here are a few suggestions:
She probably doesn't like Bella for a reason, so maybe ask Bella why they don't get along.
Tell Raina that it hurts your feelings when she is mean to you and Bella. If Raina doesn't understand or keeps being mean to you, you just aren't going to be friends with her.
I hope these suggestions helped!

So, the day before thanksgiving break, my class was coloring and watching charlie brown thanksgiving, i was sitting in my friends chair because i wanted to talk to my friend cathy, my friend(whos seat i was siting in, lets call her lela) asked me to move (BTW i was in a jerkish mood because i am an aspiring artist and that happens when im drawing) and and i was like "Aw please, can i sit with cathy, we dont get to talk alot" but she asked again so i moved. While I was intensively drawing in my concentrated state, i didnt notice when lela asked for a marker, she asked again and i gave it to her, then she said "you dont have to be such a diva"
after that she kept giving me weird looks, and yesterday, in social studies class, he and her partner were gonna sit at table 4, my main seat was there. I was working in the hall and i grabbed all the nessisary papers and went to get my pencil from my desk, and she was standing at one of the other desks waiting for her partner, i had forgotten to push my chair in so i did(NOTE lela was not at the seat i pushed in)and when i did, she screamed in my face WHATS YOUR PROBLEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!???????????? and walked away. I had told her sorry earlier before about the whole me sitting in er seat and me not giving her marker thing but she just wont let go. She says she forgives me but clearly doesnt. WHAT SHOULD I DO??????????

Well, maybe you should confront her about it. Ask her why she's acting like that. If she's done things like that in the past to you, I suggest to let it go. Behavior like that is pretty obnoxious (trust me, I've experienced it firsthand) and it's probably best to not stress about it.
I'm not an expert, but I hope this helped!
(Btw I'm an artist too!)

Hi, I have a big problem. I am in elementary school, and every single class I am in, I am always one of the most popular girls in the class. The reason why is because the popular girls ask me to be their friends.This year, in 5th grade, most of the people are people that I am unfamiliar with. I try to fit in but it never works. I had a friend in 5th grade who was popular, who unfortunately ditched me. Now I have 2 friends, but they are not popular AT ALL. I definitely want to fit in because there is some boy that everyone likes, and he has a crush on me, and so does some other boy. So my first question I need advice on is, how do I become friends with a popular girl (I have to do the talking this time)? The other problem I have is partners. Not mentally, but for projects. For projects we could choose partners, and my 2 friends in the class are always partners. I am left with no one, or I get paired up with someone who is not popular or a boy. I never get excited because it doesn't look like that will boost my popularity. So my second question is, how do I make a best friend in the grade who will always want to be partners with me?

Hold up. Being popular isn't everything. Sure, at your age it may matter quite a bit, but nothing will really change either way. Just be yourself. Ask if they wanna be your friend, and let it go from there. Lots of popular kids don't pay any mind to the people who need friends most. So try and find a lonely kid and help him/her out. You can still be friends with lots of people.
Partners? Just make friends with a few people and then have many options available.

I am mad at my best friend cause' they got me in the safe seat. My first one since Kindergarten and i'm in 4th grade! I am mad at her though I don't want to start a fight!

I think you should let it go. Maybe her mom is very strict about safety. If she keeps doing it you should tell her VERY nicely, "do u think next time I could ride not in a safety seat." But I think you should let it go. She may just be worried you could get in a car accident BTW Thank you 4 writing in my advice column your the first one
Hope it works out,
