Nicole Davies

Hello! My name is Nicole and I am a Marine spouse and mother of three daughters, ages 16, 10, and 7. I have been a stay-at-home mom most of their lives while also pursuing my Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. In the past I have worked as a social worker for child welfare in the state of Pennsylvania. I have also taught preschool for ages 2.5 - 4. During my master’s program I interned as a therapist at an inpatient psychiatric hospital working with adults, teens, and kids. My ultimate goal is to become an independently licensed therapist. Our family has lived in Onslow County for 10 of the last 15 years, which has given my children a stability that is rare among military families. While NC has been my home for several years now, I am still a Yankee at heart! I will always choose a Philly cheesesteak over a pulled-pork sandwich. In addition to taking care of my family and my educational pursuits, I enjoy traveling to destinations near and far; a novel in which I can get lost; and chatting with friends over a good cup of coffee.

Lovesick Teens

What is the cure?

I know every teen is different when it comes to liking someone of the opposite sex.  I know of some teens who seem to have very strong feelings for a person they like and I know some teens who really don’t care too much about being involved with someone.  I like the teens who are carefree, laid back, and not too worried about teen romance!  It can sometime just be too much teen drama when teens are so in love with someone and seem to have all their focus on one person. I hope this is making sense, and not nonsense.

It seems as if when a teen finds their first true love or major crush on someone the world stops and everything revolves around this one person.  I know it does because I was once a teen and I remember feeling like I was so in love and nothing else seem to matter!  Like I said, I know some teens who really want a relationship and not so much a friendship.  I know that some teens can’t help the way they feel.

I hear it  from teens all the time that come seeking advice:  “What should I do?”  I do my best to pass along some advice to the lovesick teens, but whether or not they use it will be up to them.  Ultimately, most of us know that we make our own choices and sometimes the choices we make can be overruled by emotions.  Teens emotions can be too powerful causing them to be lovesick.
