Dear Miss Emily:

I'm a 16 year old male.  I've been dating this girl for about a month.  It seems like she is hiding something.  How do ask properly if something is wrong without pissing her off?  lol..  She's is on the rag also... is it just that or should I be worried?

---------------------Miss Emily's advice--------------

I think the only way you can achieve this goal is to let her know that you are sensitive to her feelings, and you are trustworthy.  It's a pity, but honesty doesn't come easily for some people -- mainly because it takes courage to let others know how they feel.  She could have something on her mind that's she's not sharing but, if she's moody and seems easily irritated, it could be because she's on the rag.  I've seen more than one friend lose emotional stability when their hormones were whack.  That said, it takes a while to get to know someone, and a month is too little time to complete the job.  Believe me, sooner or later you are going to find out if there is a problem, but don't invite trouble before you have more information.
