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?

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 .

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
