Dear Dish-It, My Best Friend Steals From Me


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


Dear Dish-It,

Here's my question. How long does semen live? Like, if you get it on your hand and then it's like, still alive on your hand, how much longer will it live? Thank you.

Dear Hockey4574,

Most often semen will die soon after it has been exposed to air because the ideal conditions for semen is a warm, moist environment. Sometimes though, semen will stick around for a while. It is known to be able to live within a woman's uterus for up to five days, so it's not entirely impossible for it to hang out on your hand for a while. The best plan is to wash your hands with warm, soapy water if your worried about the semen setting-up camp on your hands.


Dear Dish-It,

I think my best friend has been stealing from me secretly. Every time she spends a night and leaves, there is always something missing. Then, the next week she happens to have the exact same thing I was missing. I'd try to make it sound like I'm not accusing her by saying things like, "Hey I had something just like that except it's now missing," and she'd always come up with an excuse like "Oh my mom got this for me from her work." I pretend to believe her but really inside I'm thinking, "Yeah, right. Sure you did." I'm scared to confront her and I'm also scared I might be wrong about my clues. I know for a fact I didn't misplace or lose these things. I don't know what to do. Please help me on this problem as soon as possible. Thanks!

Dear BMA,

It doesn't sound like you need to be doubting whether or not your right about your friend. Things are going missing every time she's been over and then you see her with those exact same things later on. If this had been something that had only happened once or twice, then maybe you'd need to give her the benefit of the doubt. But since this sounds like a recurring nightmare, I think it's time for you to confront this girl and set things straight. Tell her if your stuff keeps disappearing every time she is over, she will no longer be welcome at your place. If you are set on staying friends with her, then you need to let her know her thieving ways are not cool. Otherwise, she's going to continue to take your things, and advantage, of you.


Dear Dish-It,

I take Lithium and it makes me see vampires. What should I do? They won't go away.

Dear catch22,

I am going to assume that you are taking Lithium because a doctor prescribed it to you, since you should not be taking anti-depressants under any other circumstances. You should make an appointment to see your doctor as soon as possible so that he or she can re-evaluate the dosage they have prescribed to you. Hopefully a simple re-adjustment of the amount you are taking will rid you of your hallucinations. If for some reason you are taking Lithium without a doctor's consent, then you should get to a doctor pronto. Dabbling with drugs for kicks can cause serious damage to your body. You should also check out www.teenhelp.org for some good resources on drugs, addiction and the help that you can get. Good Luck!


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 .

    Should Friends Get Second Chances?

    • Yeah, everyone deserves a second chance.
    • It depends on what they've done to you.
    • Not if it involves dating your ex - that's low.
    • Never. If you're mad at them, you're mad for a reason.

    Not really throughout my life but I guess since bullying is repeated teasing, once in fifth grade these kids made up the joke that my name(Su for those you that don't know) stood for StupidUgly, which I mean wasn't THAT bad but I was like what, 10 xD I mean I let it roll off but did end up crying in the shower once. My mom caught me and made me explain everything and made it better. So really, instead of hiding it I recommend talking to an adult about it if you're ever bullied, even tho keeping it a secret may seem like a good idea.  Ever since then I've never been bullied. I'm thankful fo that c;

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumoursspread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.
