Dear Dish-It: I Said No, Now He's Mad

Dear Dish-It,

I'm 16 now and my boyfriend took me on a date and started to feel me. I pushed him away and said I don't feel ready. He said everyone does "it" now but I don't feel ready. Since I said that he won't talk to me anymore. What shall I do????

Dear Dunno,

Last time I checked, most 16-year-old teens AREN'T sexually active - less than 20% are. So your boyfriend is wrong about "everyone doing it" and you were right to stand up for yourself and tell him NO. Sounds like he's not the right guy for you. I'd take it as a blessing that he's not talking to you anymore and take this opportunity to move on and find a guy who listens to you, respects your feelings and opinions and doesn't make you feel like you need to do something you know you're not ready to do.

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
