Maryann has found herself popular at her new school. She's drunk off of the attention. But yesterday she was troubled and I got the truth out of her. Her new boyfriend left early Friday and another boy came by and flirted with her. She indicated to the other boy she was interested now she is riddled with guilt. The other boy she tells me is cuter and more popular than the boy she originally liked. Well.. I think the new boy is a player obviously because he knew she and the first boy were liking each other. She saw it as a dilemna last night but I'm going to try to help her see that if she hurts the boy that showed interest first she could easly end up with no one liking her.. She was in LOVE last week, she will quickly become unpopular with everyone if she is seen as a fake.

I'm very concerned though that the popularity has transformed her personality. I think girls do very stupid things just to have anyone like them. The fact that she didn't tell boy #2 that she had committed to boy #1 shows a lack of  boundaries for herself.

Its not a big deal and it is a situation easily corrected but the concerns for her self esteem issues runs deeper.
