Dear Dish-It, I'm Really Stuck on This Girl


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


Dear Dish-It,

My friend gets teased all the time because of her hairy legs. What is she to do?
BratzGurl


Dear BratzGurl,

If your friend is starting to feel self-conscious about the hair on her legs then it might be the time to break out the good old razor. Before slathering on the shaving cream, she should definitely sit down and have a talk with her mom about the pros and cons of shaving. Her mom will also probably be able to give her some helpful safety tips to avoid those painful nicks that come along with using a razor. Also, get her to read about the Gillette Venus razor, which has features that make it virtually nick-proof. And don't forget that there are shaving alternatives that will still get rid of pesky hair.


Dear Dish-It,

I am really stuck on this one girl, though everyone says it's just a crush. But I do not believe them. I write poetry about her, I make designs about her - it's like I'm obsessed. And every time I talk to her I embarrass myself. Please help me.

Dear AvRiLsK8ErDuDe,

It sounds like you've got a major jones for this cutie but just get a bit tongue-tied when she's around. That's nothing to worry about, it happens to everyone. All you need to do is take some deep breaths and ask her to hang out with you and your friends sometime. If you work on being her friend, chances are that everything else will just fall into place. She'll end up seeing what a cool guy you are and you'll feel more comfortable talking to her. Don't let yourself get too crazy about thinking about the perfect thing to say or do, just focus on being you and she'll be impressed for sure. Also, find a hobby other than writing poetry about her and making designs about her - that way you'll have something to talk about other than your "obsession" with her and you won't freak her out.


Dear Dish-It,

My boyfriend of four months just dumped me. We were doing very well... he gave me a promise ring and everything. I'm heartbroken, I talked to him and I said I wanna get back bad. I told him I still loved him and he said the same. I asked why we couldn't get back together and he said cuz he has another GF! What do I do? I feel like despite what he did, I would take him back. Should I take him back or what?

Dear toni95,

Unfortunately, you need to dump this dude and trade the promise ring for chocolate. You two may have been on the right track for a while but it looks like he's moved on to someone new. You don't wanna get in the habit of letting boys get with you when it's convenient for them. You deserve someone that will be by your side no matter who else comes along. Maybe this is someone who you still want to have in your life but I think it's best if he just assumes the role of friend. There are plenty of boys out there who will treat you a lot better. And don't worry, there's bound to be a ton more jewelry in your future that will mean a lot more than that promise ring!


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 .

    EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
