Dear Dish-It, Guys Never Ask Me Out
Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl when I've thought about this some more".
Guys keep looking at me and they smile and talk to me and all. But it seems like they never ask me out or anything and sometimes they are really mean to me. And when a guy looks at you, what should you do, because I don't know what to do when they smile at me or look at me? How do I get guys to pay attention to me more?
Girl, I bet you're a total hottie. There are a lot of hot girls at my school, but the weird thing is they don't get too many dates. And sometimes, they have no love life at all. Why? Because they're so hot and beautiful that they scare away all the boys! And if the boys aren't scared, they think you're already taken or too busy, and they just don't bother because they think they don't have a shot at such a hottie. The good news is, boys get bolder as they get older. Those dates will come and pretty soon, your social calendar will be packed with dates!
As for how to act when a guy is checking you out, just act like yourself. When someone smiles at you, you smile back, right? Well, the same rules apply here too. Just tune into the signals and meet a smile with a smile, a "what's up?" with a "what's up... " And as for getting guys to pay more attention to you, it sounds like you've already got that covered.
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?
