  • Will specking for myself I am only 19 but I have been down that road before. But the only thing you can ready do is try to havea conversation with her and ask her whats going on. Also try to see things her way and see things you way as well so you can get an understanding, but you'll still have to come down to making up your mind. All she really wants is to act like people that she hangs with, but she also wants you to be okay with it and not say anything about it but thats where she's got it all wrong!
