I'm not girlfriend material. I like being alone too much, and I freeze up around guys the moment I start liking them. It doesn't go away. I have recently been pushed into a relationship an, though I didn't like him, I froze up. Also, I kind of avoided him. So, no, definitely not.

well i dont know if im gf material or not. i used to hate this guy and then aroung the middle of the year i started to like him. everyone said we would make a cute couple but we pretended we couldnt stand the idea (at least i did). now im kinda wondering if i should tell him i like him.

Hi, I'm 17 and recently I was set up by this friend with a cute guy. Originally I was thinking I don't want a blind date just like in the Breakup Bible it turned out really well besides the crying at the end and now were dating. I think I am girlfriend material because I give a guy distance but not too much. Because I don't want to be a girl who is always around and seem clingy. Thanks for writing such great books!

well, let me out it this way- i have been crushing on a boy in my school for at least 2 years now. just this year i became best friends with him and my feelings for him are growing. he gets a gf this year (my friend, may i add) who treats him badly, so he comes to me all the time, wanting advice. wanting him to be happy, i give him good advie. they last for 3 months until he breaks up her because he has had enough.after they break he becomes even closer to
me, and i could have sworn that he flirted with me. i really thought that he liked me because he was always trying to make me smile and standing up for me and being really sweet. then, summer comes. i think to myself "this year is my year; he obviously likes me, so now it will be my turn to be his gf. yesss!" b ut, no. he comes back from a two week camp only to inform me that he hooked up with a girl at camp and is now going out with her. arent i happy for him?!

i'm going into 9th grade... and have never had a boyfriend. the guy who i like is on my swim team, but will be going to a different high school than me. i text him allll the time, but i doubt i'm gf material. i tend to be more of the "best friend" instead. sigh. sometimes i think he likes me... i mean, he laughs at everything i say, and talks to me allll the time. but we were playing would you rather and he picked this other girl on my swim team over me. but she moved somewhere in south america (YAY!!!) so maybe i'm next in line :)

Hi my names Sarah and I'm 15 and receieved 'The Breakup Bible'for my birthday this year. Its now my favorite book and I'm keeping it handy for any friends I have that expierence getting dumped. Its so comforting to know that other girls are going through the same
thing. I got dumped by my boyfriend of 5 monthes unexpectantly and he got together with another girl 2 weeks later-it hurt so bad but this book helped me get through everything. Not to mention that me and Jen have so
many things in common! Thanks for writing this book, it changed my way of thinking

I haven't really been a girlfriend. I mean seriously, I'm in 6th grade (going to 7th)!. I think teens (mostly junior high kids) today don't really think about the "love" part of an relationship. I mean, the girl will go out with a guy and he'll be all like, "I like you. Wanna hang out sometime". The girl agrees but then 4 days later he'll dump you. Or worse, they just want a girlfriend. In my opinion, it's stupid.Really? I mean, were in junior high/elementary school, and you want to go out?

Im not really sure if im GF material,, everyone I've ever went out with has dumped me and said they would rather be friends,, seriously not worth crying over!! But none of that is stopping me from keeping an eye out for Mr.Right. xx

I think that everyone has potential to be "girlfriend material." It just depends if it is the right guy - What he sees in a girl. Although guys' expectations can be quite high. That is why it's just better to be yourself. Then, maybe Mr. Right will come along.

Girlfriend Material was an awesome book, I finished it in a day. It teaches girls that you shouldn't strive to be someone you're not. Just be yourself. (:

Ha. Haha. Guys I like tend to go for girls who aren't well, insane. Plus, I love her to death, but I can't even stand being around my best friend for a long time. I am a space-needer. I'd rather sit in my room and write all day than obsess over guys any day. =]

No, I haven;t really thought about it before I could not be a gf I could not stand having someone who constantly wants to be with me (unless I REALLY liked him)...

well describing me is like being an it girl. i have been single for ages as i never know if i am being asked out for being myself or my status. i am a girl who is the center attention of my clique and i don't always love it. I am always constantly being talked about and sometimes wish i could do my own thing and there would be no judgement in anyones eyes. So being an it girl is not all that is dreamed up to be. i never was a cool or popular or thought of as a being beautiful but when i moved i discovered the secret to it - girl status, was being confident and happy with who u are as a person. So there for i believe that everyone is an it girl. x

Yes, i do think i am girlfriend material. Although i do have lots of guy friends & know lots of guys, never once have i heard of any of them liking me. I don't know what's the problem. It may be that i am not as pretty as some of the other girls in the class, but i mean i'm not gross. I think that boys should give me a chance, & they'll see that i can be a GREAT girlfriend if they let me :)

I've never been in a real realtionship because my parents have this rule where I can't date but I've talked to guys before and they knew about those guys. I'd say I'm girlfriend material. But I've sure got a lot to learn still. Here goes nothing.. :)
