Dear Dish-It Gives Dating Advice

Dear Dish-It,

Last year I had asked a guy to a dance when I was a major tomboy. This year I act like a real girl. I wear skirts and stuff, and the same guy I liked last year is flirting with me, talking to me and calling me. I still like him so how do I get him to ask me to the dance? I don't want to look like I'm desperate!

Dear Beachgrl_42,

Okay, I'm not quite getting your whole story here... did the guy diss you last year when you asked him out? And, why did you change your look? There is nuthin' wrong with not being a girlie-girl." If this guy turned you down last year cuz you didn't wear skirts and plaster yourself with make-up, than he's not worth your time this year either. It might be flattering that he's showing an interest but a guy that's really worth it will like you for you and not what you wear. If you want to go to the dance with him, I'd let him make the first move. If he doesn't ask you, don't sit at home and sulk. There are plenty of boys who would love to go with you - so ask one of them!


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 .

WANT TO BE A TOMBOY? I cry or complain whenever I wear shirts or make those band a looms stuff or do stuff like that. I just want to be myself, though ever since I moved I've becoming more of a girly-girl than a tomboy... Frown

This would be quite odd behaviour, especially if this is the first time he's done it. You should talk to someone, like your mom? Or report it to a child safety website?

Hi so many of you know me, because I'm mostly trying to help others, but I just need help. I'll try to explain best I can. Okay, yestrday I came home from work, and went over to my neighbors. I wasn't in my room long enough for a minute until my dad came busting in, extemely mad, and um, #####. Not even explaining himself, he just went on a rampage and threw away a lot of my stuff, while I was in the shower. I've never seen his anger like this, not to me at least. And, I just don't know what to do, because I hate to admt it but I'm scared... So.. any suggestions? thanks.

Cyberbullying is just as serious as bullying offline. You should report them, block, and ignore. But if it's a continuous thing you should talk to an adult about it! It doesn't matter if you're on the other side of the world, there are many things law enforcement, even worldwide, can do to take steps in making sure it stops and doesn't happen to anyone else.
