Protect yourself, but be kind. Talk to your parents, since they know your needs and this girl’s ways, and can help you form a decent way of creating distance.

You may need to use a credible excuse like being overwhelmed by schoolwork.

If she threatens to harm herself, your parents may need to contact her parents to alert them,

However, since she’s been equally intense with others, and moved on, her threat may not be as serious as you fear.

I’m in Grade Nine, made a bunch of new friends, and am doing well in school. I’m even in with the popular crowd sometimes.

But so many girls in my grade talk about parties, getting drunk, and making out with some guy.

I haven't done any of that because I’m really busy as a competitive dancer.

I’m also more reserved around people I don’t know.

But I feel I should’ve already made out with a guy, and been to parties by now.

Scarred For Life

There’s no “right” age for party-going and drinking, but trust me, the more ability you have to make responsible decisions about how much to drink and which guy to trust, the better.

Competitive dancing is a wonderful activity. It gives you outer body strength plus inner confidence and grace.

You’ll have no trouble being popular when you’re ready for more socializing.

You’re not “scarred,” you’re successful at all you do.

Freshman year of HS is a difficult time. Everyone is trying to "fit in" somewhere.

Luckily, this girl has her dance people to "fit in" and people she can call friends.

Maybe Julie hasn't discovered Google yet. Should we tell her about it?

Did the first part of the letter show up for you guys? I had to split into two parts.
