Teen Dating Advice

Dear Dish-It,

I think I'm ugly. Well here's my problem, basically when I go out places girls 'eye-me-up' and stuff and people, such as my mates etc., tell me that I'm good looking, but I'm convinced that I'm ugly! I don't know what my problem is! I'm not looking for sympathy or anything, I just wanna know why I can't just be satisfied with myself, and take in the fact that "I AM WHAT I AM, AND THAT'S WHAT I AM!!!" Can you help me?!? PLEASE!!!

Dear Mellie_Man,

Dude, you've got to get over this fear, or whatever it is, and enjoy the hunky-ness you seem to possess. Girls 'eye-you-up', friends admit you are good looking: C'mon, can peeps be any more direct than that? Still, I know we all have our insecurities, regardless of all the facts that prove otherwise. So why do you feel like this? Peer pressure, girls, and hormones are all examples of what might lower someone's self-esteem. However, there is a reason behind your friends complimenting your looks and girls checking you out. The clues are right in front of ya, now all you've gotta do is take a sec to meditate on these clues and boost up your confidence. Think about all the good things in your life, like your supporting friends, and fight the bummed-out feelings of a low self-esteem.


Dear Dish-It,

There is this girl that I like but every one else thinks she's ugly. I don't think she is, what should I do???

Dear SafetyHazard,

Well, what seems to be the problem here? Do you dig this gal? Do you like-like her, or just like her? Either way, the last thing you should be worryin' about is what everyone else thinks, especially about her appearance. Who knows, maybe personality-wise this girl will turn out to be your soulmate, or just a cool bud who's a blast to be around! It's great you're thinking for yourself, and not just jumping on the band-wagon along with the others! Now all you've gotta do is stand up for yourself, and your opinion, and give this girl a chance with romance or friendship. At least get to know her and prove to everyone that you think for yourself.


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 .

How Self-Confident Are You?

  • I love myself, totally!
  • I am down with me, but there's always room for improvement.
  • So what if I don't fit in? Uniqueness is where it's at, baby!
  • I'd give anything to be someone else.

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!
