    Life With Boys

    Our new intern, Jonathan, took a look at the "Misguided Motives with Boys" episode of Life With Boys, and he has a question for you. (If you haven't seen that ep yet, watch it here.)

    Here's Jonathan:
    Tess Foster is living her life with boys, but I'm living my life AS a boy -- imagine that! Tess may not have her own bathroom yet, but it seems as if she has definitely learned a few things from the three annoying brothers she has to live with. She's the only girl on the wrestling team and even though the head cheerleader, Kaylee, calls her a "boy-girl freak," I think she should stay on the team. Ladies, take notes: some guys want their girls to be a little rough. Why else do you think the blond guy was checking Tess out right after she viciously mutilated Allie's muffin?!?

    Remember when you were too young to spell and your parents would tell you that if a boy was mean to you, he likes you? It sounds crazy, but they weren't lying. The girls who were the meanest to me in grade school ending up confessing their love for me sometime before my high school graduation -- I kid you not! This is exactly why Tess' genius brother, Sam, should not have fallen for Kaylee's attempt to get him to do her science project. Sam doesn't need to do extra work to impress her. Even if she doesn't realize it yet, deep down inside, she might already have feelings for him.

    Even though Tess and Sam shared a womb, they are definitely two different creatures! Forget their genders for a second. Overall, are you more attracted to people like Tess, who are aggressive and strong? Or would you prefer someone like Sam, who's super smart?

    What matters more to YOU -- strength or smarts? Vote in the comments!

    Don't forget: Two new episodes of Life With Boys premiere Wednesday, starting at 8pm et!

  • Life with Boys: How to Get the Guy

    Posted on 12/28/2012 by Lisa

    In this Life with Boys promo, Tess (Torri Webster) says there's a simple trick to get boys to like you:

    Do you agree with her advice (even if she doesn't seem to follow it AT ALL in that clip)? I get what she's saying, but if you act like you don't care, the person might also think you're not interested, and that's no good.

    My best love advice is very similar to the classic relationship tip, "Be yourself." That can be tricky advice to follow if you have low self-esteem, so here's another way to think about it: Don't pretend to be something you're not. If you change yourself (or fake an interest in something) to impress someone else, they're going to figure it out eventually... and who wants a relationship that's based on a lie? Nobody.

    What's the best love advice you've ever received? Got any tips for attracting a crush? Please share them in the comments for those of us who are love-challenged.

    p.s. Life with Boys is coming to TeenNick in February, but you can sneak a peek at a special holiday episode tonight at 9pm et!
