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.

Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family

Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
