Our expert says:
Life can be difficult at times when you are trying to negotiate life with your parents and school and relationships too. Whilst this particular girl may have someone else, this does not mean you will not find someone for yourself.
All of these things do start with you though. If you begin to gain a stronger sense of yourself and who you are rather than wanting to be some other guy - like the jock you mention then life will begin to be easier.
If you feel good about being you others will pick up on this, and it will also make handling parents and school in a more manageable way.
Persevere and you will find things become easier the more accepting of yourself you become.
