Dear Dish-It: My Mom Hates My BF

Dear Dish-It,

If my boyfriend is acting weird because my mom don't like him and he knows it, what should I do!!


Dear worried,

If you think your mom isn't giving your boyfriend a fair chance, why don't you try and set something up so the three of you can spend some more time together, getting to know each other better? If that's just not possible, you can at least try talking to your mom and communicating to her (in a calm way) why she should be more open-minded about the guy you're seeing and why you feel he's really a great person.

Your other option is to listen to your mom. Parents usually want the best for their kids, so maybe your mom has some legit concerns about the guy you are dating that you need to be aware of. Ask her why she doesn't like him and see if any of the things she says seem true - she may be trying to protect you from getting hurt, in which case you should take her advice!

hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
