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?

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.

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
