It's probably helpful to understand some basic neurophysiology. There is a period of physical intimacy that promotes the pleasant euphoria of being in love. If a couple holds hands this will last perhaps 3 months to a year or more. If a couple kisses, another 3-12 months. If a couple touches breasts, that kind of caress, another period of same duration. This goes on until sexual intercourse, which simply elevates the same neurohormonal rewards for 3-12 months or so. At each stage there is a romantic euphoria, which becomes habituated, or not so rewarding. This obviously leads to people becoming physically tired of or bored with each other. This is why any relationship, sexual or not, is built on more than physical attraction. Females understand this more than males, as females are somewhat more personal. About 1 in 10/20 marriages maintains this level of sexual and other joy throughout their lifetimes together. How is this possible? By basing the relationship on something more than physical attraction. In plain words, if a couple is not able to sit at dinner, particularly with one set of their parents, and feel love for each other, without having to resort to sexual pleasure to make that love feeling, then they're in lust, not in love, and their further relationship perks are likely to peter out at each level of conditioning. How do people find love that lasts, that makes sexual union joyful and caring beyond the physical attraction period? It is because they have been raised to value their inner childlike joy, and to value healing childish greed, pride, lust, and so on. Another factor especially for women: STDs are more serious for women who contract them, including infertility and worse. Another set of neurophysiological studies indicates that each sexual partner obscures one's ability to develop a more childlike love and caring for one's eventual mate. Two worthwhile books: "Sacred Psychology of Love," Marilyn Barrick, and "For Women Only," Shaunti Feldhahn. Hint: Shaunti also wrote "For Men Only," and if one's bf doesn't care to read it and discuss it with you, look out, beware. Reviews at http://www.amazon.com

You should call them. If it's already been a week, it won't hurt to call. Also if you never get calls back, maybe you should consider how you fill out applications. I know it might seem like it doesn't make a difference when it comes to job performance, but if you have messy handwriting or incorrect grammar it might look bad. just an idea.

I agree with JJ68. It can't hurt anything to call, its your right to call just to follow up on your application. I would even go inside the store and ask to speak with the hiring manager, find out if they in fact need help and go from there. Start applying for the job with your personality first before on paper.

Just be there for him.I'm 13 too and I have a 24 year old in my like that means the world to me. She is there when I need to talk and even though a 13 year old boy may not open up as much as me just being close to him always helps. And then there is the obvious...help him with his homework practice sports with him do what he likes to do as for your sister: the same thing show her love and support and thats all anyone could ask for!

Be a role model set the example. It may sound plain but talk to him, Nowadays many kids need more role models.
