Dear Dish-It, I Used to Be a Tomboy

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 .

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
