Dear Dish-It, I Love a Bad Boy


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


Dear Dish-It,

Last term, I dumped my really faithful friend that always walks home with me. Now, I walk with a bunch of people who don't even think I'm there. They call me "friend," but they don't even care. I always bring lots of tasty snacks to school and when they want some, they just beg and say they're my friend. My best friend tried to give me advice but I always yelled at her after. She forgives me but I don't have anyone to walk home with. The girl who I always walk home with won't even talk to me anymore. What should I do?

Dear Smartest_gurl,

Well, despite your nickname, you really weren't very smart about the way you handled your friends. The good news is - you realize the error of your ways. The bad news is you're gonna have to eat a lot of humble pie - and that still might not be enough. If I were you I would send your walkin' bud a note or just grab her for a minute in between classes. Tell her you were a dork and that you are sorry. Listen to what she has to say - if she wants to tell you you've been a jerk. It's gonna sting, but let's face it, you deserve it. Tell her that if she's ever interested, you'd like to walk home with her again cuz you realize she was your real friend. Hopefully she'll have a heart and give ya a second chance. One more thing... stop yellin' at peeps (like your BFF) who are givin' ya advice.


Dear Dish-It,

Hey, I am having a little trouble and I don't know if you can help. I have this guy friend, which is now my x-boyfriend. He claims he is a thug. He is into smokin' weed and stealing cars. I am the only female he ever said "I love you" to and his family and friends tell me all the time how much I mean to him. Still, I feel I have no time in my life for those things he does. He is always gettin' locked up or getting fines. I don't know if I should leave him or just see what happens - please help!

Dear inluvwitathug,

Leave him and don't look back. It may seem harsh - and I guess it is - but the thing is, you can't save people. This "thug" needs to realize that his life is in the toilet and pull it out himself - for himself. Besides, if you meant so much to him, why would he be actin' like this and expecting you to stay with him? Eventually, he could get you into trouble too - and you sound like you've got a good head on your shoulders so it would be a real shame. It's a tough thing to do, but you gotta walk away from thug-boy and find someone who is into positive things and will bring up UP not down.


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 .

Would You Date a Bad Boy?

  • Sure, if he had a heart of gold on the inside.
  • Yep! The more dangerous, the better.
  • No way. I like my guys nice, safe and friendly.
  • Only if the bad boy was Eminem.

I don't have ADHD, but I know plenty about it. One of my friends has ADHD and Tourette's, and the teachers were always turds about it. Anyway, i think that a good way to deal with ADHD acting up is either changing medication or trying to eat foods or drinks with caffeine. I'm not sure if it works for you, but a lot of people with ADHD have seen significant improvements after putting caffeine in their systems. If your friends are acting like turds, you need better friends. I hope my advice helps.

Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!
