the masto guide to popularity:

1. don't put off breaking up when you know you want to. prolonging the situation only makes it worse. tell 'em honestly, simply, kindly, but firmly. don't make a big production. don't make up an elaborate story just to help you avoid a whole tear-jerking scene. if you wanna date other people, say so. be prepared for them to feel hurt and rejected, even if you've gone together for only a short time, and haven't been too serious, there's still a feeling of rejection

when someone says they prefer the company of others to your exclusive company. but if you're honest, and direct and avoid making a flowery emotional speech when you break the news, they will respect you for your frankness, and honestly they'll appreciate the kind and straightforward manner in which you told them your decision. unless they're a real jerk or a cry baby, you'll remain friends.

being attractive is the most important thing there is. if you wanna catch the biggest fish in your pond, you have to be as attractive as possible. make sure to keep your hair spotless and clean. wash it at least every two weeks. once every two weeks! and if you see johnny football hero in the hall, tell him he played a great game. tell him you liked his article in the newspaper

i propose we support a one month limit on going steady. I think It would keep people more able to deal with weird situations and get to know more people. i think if you're ready to go out with johnny, now's the time to tell him about your one month limit. he won't mind, he'll appreciate your fresh look on dating. and once you've dated someone else, you can date him again. i'm sure he'll like it

everyone will appreciate it! you're so novel, what a good idea! you can keep your time to yourself! you don't need date insurance! you can go out with whoever you want to! every boy, every boy in the whole world could be yours if you'll just listen to my plan! the teenage guide to popularity!

@burgin welp now this is going to be in my head for the next month 😂😂
