There is a guy who is really cute and you catch him looking at you. He asks you your weekend plans and always comes by to talk to you. You think he likes you. A lot of your friends notice the way he looks at you and they tell you that he is checking you out. Then you tell your friend over 10 years and she says "it dosen't mean anything."
It is always exciting when a guy looks at you or notices you. Friends are supposed to support you and be happy for you. If a friend doesen't support you or make you feel as if you are just imagining it then that means that that person is jealous of you or unhappy in their relationship.
If this is the first time that your friend did this or never did it before but lately everytime you mention a guy she laughs then you should have a talk with this friend. Ask this friend if everything is okay and if they say yes tell them how you feel about what you said.
When a guy pays attention to a girl their confidence level goes up. Even if it is just an IM or a phone call it is exciting. A friend who tries to make the news sound like it's not important is just jealous or trying to bring you down.
True friends support their friends and give them positive advice. Yes they do protect their friends but only if they know a guy is bad for them. If a guy seems good and is paying attention to their friend then they should be happy for that friend and not meddle in. A true friend is happy as long as you are happy and being treated right.
