Introducing: Ask Coop!


Hey readers,

I am eager to inform you that I will be writing a regular advice column from now on. It’s gonna work like this: readers can write me a letter in the form of an online comment (it can be anonymous!) Merely click the comment link bellow this article and write away! Feel free to be a little creative with your questions. I will post replies as frequently as possible. Have fun. I hope to hear from you soon. You all will be hearing from me!

  1. Dear Coop,

    For Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend bought me a bunch of random presents. It was really cute and thoughtful. The next day, I found out that he bought them from Big Lots the day before Valentine’s. Is this grounds for breakup? What should I do? Help me!



  2. My best friend just bought a really ugly prom dress. She spent so much money on it and she can’t return it but it makes her look ridiculous. What should I do?

  3. I think I am in love with my best friend, but he seems to have fallen in love with another girl: Hannah Montana. No, not Billy Cyrus’ daughter, the actual television character. I find this strange, but I must win his affection.

    How do I beat Hannah Montana when she has the best of both worlds? Is she unstoppable? What to do?

  4. Dear Coop,
    In middle school, I was really good at Baseball. But now I play lacrosse. All my friends are playing baseball, and I don’t think I will make many friends playing lacrosse. What can I do? I am freaking out and I really need an answer!!!!!!

  5. Dear Coops,

    I have been friends with this kid for a very long time but lately, I get the feeling that he might be gay. He’s always touching other guys and acting really weird. I don’t know what to do. Help me!

  6. Coopers,

    I don’t know who to take to prom. How do I decide? Does it really matter THAT much? Do I take a friend, and is that ok?

  7. Dear Coop,

    I am in love with my teacher. I know its completely inappropriate but I cant help it. He’s perfect. I think about him constantly.

    What should I do?

  8. Dear Coops,

    I used to have a certain penchant for felines. With years of grooming, petting, nursing, and feeding has come a certain progression of my feelings towards these cats. No longer do I take quick glances to check on my little furry friend. I stare longingly into her eyes, her blue pearl eyes, hoping that she too will stare into my eyes.

    But she never does. She would rather invest herself in a game of “untangle the ball of yarn.” One day, I hid the ball of yarn, and watched her struggle to find it. When she finally gave up, she focused her attention back on me, and I, conversely, focused my eyes on her. Yes, sadly, I had to resort to a game of “hard to get” to entice her, but in the end, it was all for a good cause.

    Coop, I am writing you this letter because I just don’t know what to do anymore. How do you express love to a friend for whom you clean the litter box?

    Please help me!


  9. Dear Coop,

    I have a really bad crush on one of my friends, but I know a bunch of other people who also like him. These other girls like his a lot more than I like him, but I get so jealous when they flirt with him. I know it is horrible to fight over guys, but I don’t know what to do!

    Help me please!

    crazy in love

  10. I am in love with a sophmore, but im a senior. I want to ask her to prom but im already going with a friend in the junior grade?
    Should i ditch my friend and ask the girl and make myslef happy, or just go with my friend?
