Advice for Kids and Teens

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

All my friends have had a boyfriend. I'm the only one who hasn't. I have a crush on this guy and my friends think I should ask him out but I'm scared he'll say no. I really like him but I just can't ask him out, it's too embarrassing. But, if I don't, I'll have to go on pretending that I like being single. Which I DON'T. Please help me.

Dear WILD Flower,

It is completely understandable that you would be shy about asking a boy out. Tons of people are - at a million different ages. But just because you're shy doesn't mean you should curl up in a hole, wishing you had a cool boyfriend, waiting for that cool guy to come find you. Instead, do just the opposite. If you really like this boy, then you don't necessarily have to stomp up to him and ask him out, but you should definitely ask him if he wants to hang out sometime, even if it's in a group setting. If you get a bunch of your buds together you'll feel a lot less pressured but will be able to get to know this cutie a little better. And maybe you might even start to feel comfortable enough to ask him out!


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 .

Antyway... The one who barely notices you. The class clown does that to ALL girls. He's an attention hog. To him, he's just doing what comes natural.
