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 .

    My friend problem: Get ready 'cause this'll be long. Problem = ... Okay, so I know this girl, Amelia. Last year when I was new at school she invited me to sit with her and her friends on the second day. Since then, we've been 'best friends'. Throughout the whole of last year she was really great. Now, it's been a few weeks since the first day of school - 5th grade. On the first day she was really happy to see me and we did all that normal BFF stuff. We even traced one of each of our hands and wrote 'BFFs' at the top. It all started with this.                                                   HOW IT HAPPENED One day we were sitting in the cafeteria. Her: Hey, what should we do during recess today? Another Friend Who Doesn't Like Amelia: Hey, do you want to do ______________? Me: Ummmmmmmmmmmm ......... errrrrrrrr .............. Me: (Thinking of Plan) Me: Eureka! Me: Hey, Amelia, I have this idea. Since you don't like Belen .... (this is other friend's name)  and you don't like her, I was thinking: Maybe on Monday I could hang out with you and Tuesday with her ... etc. Her: Cool. Well ... okay. Note: Well, I was feeling pretty bad, because she'd been a really great friend, but then I thought: Hey, it's only one day! It's not like I told her "Hey, I'm going to ditch you!" So then I went off with Belen. Well, the next day, or maybe a few days later - I don't remember - she told me during recess again: Her: Hey, do you want to go hang out with them over there? Points Me: Sure ... why not? Then we went on over there. During the whole of that recess, she didn't pay much attention to me. That was when I got suspicious. Now, it's been, like, 4 weeks since the first day of school. I decided to hang out with Belen during recess on Friday. Tomorrow is Monday, btw. Belen: Are you going to hang out with me during recess today? Me: Yeah. I would've wanted to go off with Amelia, but she was blowing me off lately. Last year a lot of people weren't her friends and she wasn't that social. Now, I see her flirting with _ _ _ _ _ _ easily and everyone (even people who left her out of their groups last year) is crowding around her while she talks about her big party. Last time, she even asked me if I wanted to go away with Belen, because she wasn't there either. Maybe I'm overreacting and she's just getting to be friends with a lot more people. I dunno. Should I be happy for her? Like I said, Belen and Amelia kinda hate each other, which is pretty inconvenient because they're both my best friends. So, you know that 'big party' Amelia is hosting? Belen's not invited and I don't know about myself, either. During yet ANOTHER recess Belen was talking about planning her birthday party. Now it's October 4th and her birthday is actually on January 21. Weird. I think she means this as a revenge party, because she is NOT inviting Amelia. Am I overreacting and taking this too seriously? Maybe I'm not and Amelia really isn't a good friend. But if I go to Belen's party and have an awesome time, Amelia (if I was overreacting) would be really upset. Then she would ditch me - FOR REAL. If I AM invited to Amelia's party, then what if she started blowing me off there? I don't want to look like a pesky little 'friend', clinging onto her. I NEED HELP. P.S. I have another problem caused by the first problem. I am crushing really hard on My Crush. I'm sure boys like fun, bouncy, happy, perky girls. He usually sees me during recess, where Amelia is usually blowing me off. Then, I start acting really sluggish and moody. Basically downright not-in-the-fun-mood. What would he think? Thank you for your help. P.P.S. PLEASE DO help me. This is an emergency. Thank you very much for your help (if you do help, that is.)

    Perfect Friend: Someone who will support you when you fail. Someone who encourages you. Someone who sticks with you. Someone who comforts you when things go wrong. Someone who is funny and makes you laugh. Someone who tells you the answers in class ... Someone who would wait for you after detention. Someone who would buy you great presents for your birthday. Someone who you know you can always count on. Someone nice (obvious). Someone who never fights with you. Someone who would always be a good friend, even if you weren't. Someone who is loyal. Someone who'd never go off with some other person. Someone who would read all this stuff without telling me they were bored.
