Anonymous: Hey! I go to an exclusive hockey school so I'm used to all the boys joking around and 'wheeling' all the guys always say they like me or my friends and we get to the edge of dating and they just drift off for different girls at different schools it's always like that! All the boys never seem to like any girls that they go to school with! They always go for girls from other schools. Do you think there is any reason why they do that? Sorry it's not a hockey related question I just need advice! :) 

Hi!

Maybe they’re not looking for anything serious. That would explain why they bail out when you get close to officially dating. Maybe they like girls from other schools because they like the distance/separation. 

Anonymous: Hey again! I took your advice and told the guy I like about all his penalties hurting the team and he totally understood. In our game today he was getting frustrated again and on the bench he said he was going to take someone out cause they kept trying to push me around. I gave him a look and all he said after was "go get him" and let me handle it. Also, he asked me to go to a friends hockey game with him this weekend !! Thanks again, and I love your blog 

Hey again!

That’s awesome! Aw I’m so happy to hear that.   I hope you guys have a lot of fun this weekend!

tendybaby: Hey all hockey girls! If any of you are ldr or just want to check it out, there's an app called Between. It's like a little page for just you and your significant other! Super cute and totally rocks, my goalie and I are enjoying the hell out of getting photos posted and old notes, letters, etc. It's seriously the cutest app though so please if you are struggling with ldr or the eminent long distance relationship approaching for next season, give it a go :) this has been a PSA! xo Courtney 

Hey!

I’ve been trying this app as well and I must say I agree with Court! Try it out!

Anonymous: [PART THREE] I love him and want more eventually but I’m afraid he won’t ever settle down and want to date me. Do you think it’s possible? Is he worth waiting for? 

Hey!

Well, it’s not really up to me to decide if he’s worth waiting for or not, that’s up to you! However, I don’t think letting other great guys pass you by while waiting for him isn’t the best decision. I think, personally, that if he’s not willing to be with you now, you should be with someone else who does want to be with you and who will be sweet to you (not that he’s not, but you know). I believe that if a guy really likes you, he’ll be with you. No if’s ands or buts. I imagine you guys are cute together, using pet names and all that stuff. I think that he’s in a great position for a guy - he’s got you, who’s like a girlfriend to him - but he doesn’t have to be committed to you. Do you understand what I mean? I hope you don’t take that offensively. 

My best advice is to tell him how you feel and if he’s not willing to date you, move on and just be friends. I say that because I think you deserve better. I think doing what you’re doing considering your feelings for him isn’t fair to yourself, and I think by waiting for something uncertain could be such a waste of time and you could miss out on something greater. I don’t want you to feel hurt, which you must feel when he’s sleeping with other girls, right? I mean of course it’s possible that one day he’ll settle down and be with you, no one can predict the future, but again I don’t think waiting for something uncertain is a great idea. 

I want what’s best for you - for you to be happy. 

Anonymous: Hey, so there's this guy a year older than me. We play hockey on our school team together and the past few games he's been getting bad penalties for no reason and last game he said its because he's protecting me. I'm fully capable of doing that myself but I still thinks it's kinda sweet. I really like him and it's nice that he's doing that but it's hurting the team. He's in grade 12 so it's not really up to me to tell him what he can and can't do. Any advice? 

Hey!

I would just tell him that it’s really so sweet that he’s trying to protect you and that you really like him, but that you think it’s better for the team if he lets you take care of yourself. Tell him that you’re not trying to offend him because again it’s sweet and it’s nice knowing he has your back but that you feel like the penalties are hurting. You’re not exactly telling him what to do, as long as you’re not demanding about it. Butter him up and be really nice about it and I’m sure it’ll be fine!

Anonymous: i have this issue (or not that much of an issue i suppose, haha) where i really don't get that cold in hockey rinks, so i generally don't go all out with the sweaters and boots and all the typical hockey rink clothing--the real issue is the looks i get! people look at me like i'm absolutely insane, and i've actually had someone say, "you know this is an ice hockey game, right?". So i was wondering, do you have any suggestions of light clothes i could wear to hockey games that look warm? thanks! 

Hey!

Try underarmour light running sweaters. They’re thin, so you won’t get too warm, but you’ll look comfortable for the temperature too. Like these ones:

I have the blue/grey one. It’s bulkier than it looks in the photo, but it’s not very thick, you definitely won’t be warm wearing it in an arena. There’s a lot of them around! You could probably similar ones at target, or aeropostale! They’re new “Live Love Dream” work out stuff is rather thin. 

You could also try cardigans, which you can get from almost anywhere. I’m the same way - I mean I don’t go rocketing a tank top or tee shirts at the rink, but I always wear a hoodie or zip up, people always used to pester me about it asking me if I was cold or asking me where my coat was, etc. If people bother you about it and you’re just wearing sweaters, tell them you’re wearing layers, although at the end of the day as long as you’re comfortable, it doesn’t matter what people say. Wear what you’re comfortable with! 

Hope this helps!
