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!

My best friend is always wanting me to spend the night at her house, but because she keeps irritating me about it, i can't get my school work done and now i'm falling behind. How do I tell her how I feel without hurting her feelings?

They're great friends and I'm just... stupid. I'm sorry dear but things do get better and its not your fault. Everyone messes up, its just a part a life. If you need to talk and explain to me with more info you can, I'm here. :)    ^^This. You're not stupid either. Everybody makes mistakes and messes things up.
