This is the second child disappearance

incidents could be related, however the police department has

this young boy's disappearance, then please contact the San Francisco
Police Department immediately.
I have this problem and
I think you're the only one who can help me. You see there is
this guy that I'm absolutely crazy about...but I don't think
that he sees me as anything more than a friend. I actually think
he may have feelings for my roommate instead. Is there anything you can suggest to
help me get over myself and finally express my true feelings
for my friend? And
what about my roommate? If he is into her should I back away
and let them be together? Or should I be bold enough to ask my
friend not to date the guy I'm head over heels for?
Dear Lovesick Co-Ed,
Wow, you're in quite the predicament!
Listen crushes come and they go, but true friendships...they
last for lifetimes. Before you do anything, I would advise you
to talk to your roommate. It'd be best...
