“My friends tease me for liking 1D and I hate it. They say 1D are lame femme boys. I really want to see Louis in concert but I don’t have anyone to go with and I don’t want to ask my friends because they will make fun of me. How do I go about making friends on Twitter to see him in Florida without meeting crazy people?”
I am so sorry that your friends are teasing you about what brings you joy. That is so hurtful. And even if they were “femme boys” that’s not a bad thing. You have nothing to be ashamed of and I hope that you’ll find friends who understand you better soon.
One time I went to a concert where I didn’t have anyone to go with, and the day of, I tweeted “anyone going to this concert?” and I ended up making some amazing friends that I’ll cherish forever.
My advice to you is to ask around on Twitter and see if there’s anyone around your age that is going to the Florida show. It might be helpful to search for keywords like “Louis Florida” and see if anyone has mentioned planning to go.
Even if you aren’t able to find anyone to go with in time, concerts are a great place to meet people and make friends! I know you’ll still have the time of your life.
You can do this, friend.
“Bailey! Please help. My friend is a solo harrie and I used to have a lot of fun with her. We were both 1D stans back in the day. Now she believes in the stunts (especially Holivia) even now after they’ve broken up. HOW DO I SMACK SOME SENSE INTO HER?! Thanks. -Concerned Friend”
Dear Concerned Friend,
Wow, that’s a doozy. Unfortunately, there’s no guarantee that your friend will ever see the light. If that’s the case, maybe you could agree to not talk about Harry’s relationships?
I’d suggest leaving Larry out of it at first, because she might instantly reject that idea altogether. I would gather up some resources of closeting in the entertainment industry, especially recent events. I’ve noticed that people who don’t believe in current day closeting try to say that it no longer happens, so showing recent events might help (try Garrett Clayton’s story). If she refuses to see, or tries but cannot understand, then you’ve done all that you can do.
Good luck! You can do this, friend.
