So HUGE announcements this week!!!! This week I shared with you guys on Snapchat that as of this week, there are going to be TWO ASK KIMBERLY videos EVERY SINGLE WEEK!!!! I decided to do this because you guys are the sweetest, I really love making videos for you and helping you, and it makes me so happy to know that you are watching and interacting so much each and every week!!!
This week you guys asked an amazing number of questions - on Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and Facebook, and I chose 10 of the questions that I thought you guys could relate to the most. These questions included things like LGBT or LGBTQ relationships, Dating Younger Guys, What to do when your parents won't let you date, my hair (lol), dealing with a crush who is SHY, what to do if your crush is gay, tips on dealing with self-confidence, how to become a psychologist or relationship counsellor and pros and cons, and a little bit more about my life.
Each Q&A will be shared on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or Snapchat and I'll be surprising you with the exact location each couple of weeks. There will be one Q&A every two weeks (every other Friday) and another fun relationship video every two weeks on the off week!
Hope you guys love this new plan and definitely give me feedback in the comments below!

Question number one is from Instagram, and it’s from Life With Essie, and she says, “What to do if the guy signals that he likes me but he always flakes on me,” and she goes like this, “Please help.”
Okay, Life With Essie, I am going to be so honest with you, because I really care about you, and I want the situation to actually work out in your favor. If a guy says one thing and does another, if he’s been noncommittal, if he’s not texting you and he says he’s going to text you, or if he doesn’t show up, but when he’s around you and it’s convenient for him he acts really flirting and interested, this guy probably doesn’t like you as much as you like him.
If a guy is genuinely, genuinely interested in you, he is going to go the extra mile. He’s going to try his best to make sure that any opportunity with you is well taken advantage of. He will make the extra effort to make sure that he gets face time with you, and that he can actually impress you, and get to know you better. If he’s flaking on you, he probably isn’t as interested as he should be for this to actually progress forward. But that’s okay, don’t worry about it. If you want to be in a relationship with someone they should like you a lot. If he’s not that interested, he’s probably not the right match for you. I would encourage you to move on because you deserve the best.
I took the snapshot of this snap, and I forgot that when you take a snapshot it doesn’t actually save the name of the person, and there are so many of you that send me messages, and there’s no way I’m going to know who this is. If you’re watching and this is your question, thank you so much for sending it. I’m going to read it right now.
“Hello Miss Kimberley,” oh you’re so cute, “I’m pretty sure the boy that I like likes me back, but neither of us are allowed to date because we’re both still in highschool, any suggestions.”
Okay, I think this is such a great question. My personal opinion on this is that, actually, it’s a really good experience for you to date in highschool. The reason why is because it’s important that you experience relationships before you got out to university or college and you have more independent relationships that often a little bit more adult.
It’s really important for you to have highschool relationships, and even relationships a little bit before highschool, like in grade seven and eight. They don’t have to be serious relationships, but I think it isn’t for and for those to form so that you can get to know somebody of the opposite or same sex that you’re interested in, that you can get to know on a more romantic level.
Child marriages are common:
On a recent day, eight community elders sat in a [refugee] camp, some chewing khat, the narcotic leaf favored by most Yemeni men. Seven have married off their girls this year.
Even Salim, the elder who worked at the charity, is preparing to marry off his two daughters, ages 13 and 14. "I want to feel secure of their futures, if only for economic reasons," he said.
Mohammad Ali al-Ansi married off his two girls, ages 13 and 14, in April. "My heart is bleeding inside, but I was forced to do this," he said. "I have no job. Its difficult for me to feed my 10 children." He received $1,600 in dowry for each of his girls, he said. But after paying for their weddings and meeting other debts, the money has nearly run out. "If things get worse, theres no doubt Ill marry off my 12-year-old daughter," Ansi said.
More on Ansis 14-year-old daughter Fatma, married to 21-year-old Zaid:
Fatma spent her day cooking and washing clothes for her in-laws. When asked the name of her husbands family, Fatma didnt know it. She remembers her father telling her and her sister, Amal, that the family needed money. She remembers that Amal was in tears because her new husband was taking her to another region. The two sisters have not seen each other since their weddings.
"I am too young to be married," Fatma said. "I want to study. I want to learn how to write. I have sacrificed for my family," she continued, her voice dropping to a whisper.
Minutes later, her husband arrived at the tent, and Fatma went silent. He said Fatma was "at a good age to marry." When asked if she could attend school, he shook his head no. "Shes a little too old for school," he said.
Female sexual freedom among the Tuareg : Flora Drury has written up the sex habits of the Saharas Muslim Tuareg people based on the work by Henrietta Butler. Some excerpts:
Their men became known as the blue men of the Sahara because the dye from their distinctive indigo scarves rub off onto their faces giving them a mysterious air. The Tuareg evoke images of a long forgotten and romantic age.
