Dear Dish-It, I Don't Know What to Talk About

Dear Dish-It,

I have a girlfriend and she likes me and I like her, but she won't talk to me. When we talk, I don't know what to talk about. Like, one time I called her - it was total silence. What should I do?
Cody


Dear Cody,

It's pretty hard to have a relationship with someone when there are no words passing back and forth. Conversation is key because it's all about the communication - it's the best part (and sometimes the hardest part of any relationship - friend or girlfriend). But don't worry because you're not alone... I get a lot of Qs from kids saying the same thing. So here's what you need to do. Ask yourself why you like this girl. If it's because she's a hottie and that's it, you're doomed. You need to share things and have stuff in common. Ask her what she likes to do for fun, and tell her what you like to do for fun. Talk about movies, music, TV shows. If you go to the same school, you can talk about your classes or that strict teacher you both can't stand. And whatever you do, don't fake it. Be real, act like yourself, and don't pretend to be something you're not. There's no point in dating if you can't be yourselves.


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.

Maybe they're trying a little too hard to impress you. Maybe they're desperate for a friend and don't want to lose you so they're trying to please you. Just calmly ask them if they could stop trying to be exactly like you and instead be themselves, because people like to be friends who are themselves. Good luck! -HannahG

Hey, just move on. If she/he can't see what a great person you are, then they don't deserve you. You're an amazing person and if they believe differently, then they don't have a clue about what they're missing. -HannahG

Look, I know that it's bad what she did. It's wrong. But there's nothing you can do about that. Let her live her own life, the best thing to do is just leave it alone. If she wants to take care of a child, she'll deal with the consequences. She makes her own decisions, so if that's what she wants then you shouldn't interfere with it. Forget her. Just don't make the same mistake. I know some girls out there believe that their boyfriend totally loves them, and if they have ########### they'll love their girl even more. That's not always the truth. They always say it's not gonna be me, I'm not gonna make the same mistake, my boyfriend loves me no matter what, and they turn out wrong. That's the end of my rant. Just leave her alone, you'll be better off. -HannahG
