Friends

Friends. Everyone has them and everyone needs them. They’re there with you through the good and bad times. We’re saying ‘Yay!’ to friendship!

Rise Above travelled to the MTV Crashes Plymouth weekender, and we talked to some of the 70,000 festival goers there to ask for their first relationship tips, what their first kiss was like and how they knew when they were ready to have sex for the first time. Plus Tinie Tempah, Little Mix and Foxes were playing so, you know, we might have gone and seen some bands too….

Seriously though, we had some proper chats that weekend and basically people like someone they can trust, feel comfortable with and who makes them laugh! Relationships are pretty much friendships that get, well, more intimate along the way so if you wouldn’t be friends with someone then… After that, we got a little bit deeper and talked about first kisses, and people were pretty open wth their advice – which is to just try and enjoy it! You’re gonna be nervous (everyone is – it’s your first kiss!) so don’t stress ‘cos you’ll get the hang of it. Practice makes perfect 😉

When it comes to your first time having sex though – that’s more serious. You HAVE to be comfortable. If something doesn’t feel right – even a little bit – then walk away. It’s totally cool to wait till you feel safe because you’ll know when it’s right, trust.
