Dear Dish-It, My Boyfriend Stopped Calling

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".

Dear Dish-It,

What would you do if your boyfriend stops calling, but at school he still talks to you and still wants to be your steady?
Your friend, K

Dear K,

You need to love yourself, K! There's a lack of respect goin' on cuz this boy isn't treating you right. I guess it's possible that he's just a bit on the slow side, so if you want to cut him some slack, you need to set him straight by telling him you're not happy with the zero phone time. If he has a good explanation, like maybe he has strict parents and isn't allowed to use the phone or maybe he's scared of your parents, then work it out. But if his story is weak, then you've gotta let him know that he has to get his act together, or else it's time to say bye to this boyfriend and move on to newer and better opportunities.

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 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.

    Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]
