Dear Dish-It, I Had a Girlfriend, but She Moved Away

Dear Dish-It,

I had a girlfriend, but she moved and I'm really confused cuz all the girls are hitting on me. I reject them cuz I still really like Jessica. What do I do?
ANON


Dear ANON,

There's nothing worse than lost love. That's what you've got... and by the sounds of it, you've got it bad. Do you and Jessica keep in touch at all? Cuz if ya do, then you gotta make a big decision to see whether or not you can deal with having a long distance relationship. And long distance tends to be a real heartbreaker cuz it takes so much more work than regular relationships. If you don't hear from Jessica anymore, you need to mend your heart by moving forward. It sounds like all sorts of hotties are throwing themselves at you - and there's gotta be at least one you like. Ask her out, but take it slow. Hang together like friends and see if you have fun. If you think of it as chillin' with a friend, rather than a date thing, it'll be easier. Give it a try and remember there are going to be plenty of other hotties ahead of you.


I think that is great advice, but what I think is: you don't have to go out with her if she doesn't want to, but you should be friends, really good friends with her cuz I went out with someone and they dumped me and then I realized that it was much more fun being friends than being boyfriend/girlfriend. It was really good cuz you have a laugh and chat all the time if you're just friends. So have a try at what I said (I know it will work).

Well she moved. How do you know she's not cheating on you? So you should dump her cuz you don't know if she is cheating on you.

Well if you still really like your old girlfriend, then just keep in touch with her. And the girls that keep hitting on you - just tell them the truth. Hope this comes in handy!

Hey, I know how you feel. I really do. So all you have to do is try to let her go, or look in other girls for what your girlfriend had. It may not be perfect, but they may have some qualities. You may not find someone just like her, but there might be someone close.

I think you should talk to her about how she feels about it, what she wants to do and how to deal with it, but remember it's a joint decision, so make sure you're cool with whatever agreement you make! And good luck!

Something like that happened to this person I know. They still talk, but they decided just to be friends instead.

So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to Dish-It here. Send all of your questions to deardish@kidzworld.com. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,We'll dish 'em up, too.

  • Nah, I like to have my hottie close by.
  • Sure, if they're worth the effort.
  • Only for someone really special - like Miley Cyrus or Zac Efron.
  • Nope. Never.

Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
