Dear Dish-It, My Girlfriend Has Been Acting Weird
Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".
My girlfriend has been acting weird lately and I think she's using me. We went skateboarding and I went up to hug her, but she skated away. Then five minutes later, she comes back and we kiss and skate around, but then she takes off. So I go up to her and she skates off again. But then five minutes later, she's back. What is she trying to do? I also think she might be ticked off with me cuz I'm really good friends with other girls and I talk to them, but we're only friends!
Dear hell raiser,
Your girl is playing you like a fiddle. She's acting like a three year-old and she probably knows it. But you're letting her walk all over you, so she's not about to treat you any better any time soon. You need to let her know she's driving you crazy and if she wants to still go out with you, then she's going to have to stop being so immature. Maybe she does feel threatened by your other female friends, but that doesn't give her the right to be a jerk. Tell her that if she has concerns, she needs to talk to you, not take off on you in public. If she keeps acting dumb, then find yourself a new girl.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
