Dear Dish-It: Everyone Has a Boyfriend Except Me

Aug 09, 2012

Dear Dish-It,

I want a boyfriend because all my friends have one, but it’s the summer holidays now so it’s hard to find one. I tried looking for one in a chat room, but there was no one my age. What should I do? How can I get a boyfriend?

Lover Girl

Dear Lover Girl,

It’s never fun when all of your friends have boyfriends and you don’t. But having a boyfriend should mean more than just keeping up with your friends. It should happen when you find the right boy - one you truly like and who likes you back.

Don't Meet Boyfriends on Chat Rooms

Chat rooms are the worst places to meet a boyfriend. Sure, plenty of adults meet their “match” on online dating sites. But there’s a reason those websites are for ages 18+. Too many creeps hang out on chat rooms, hoping to prey on innocent girls. So never meet up with anyone that you meet in a chat room.

Try Your Local Hangouts 

The best way to meet someone your age is to frequent your local hangouts. Try the mall, the beach or the skate park. You could also get involved with your community by joining a summer camp or doing volunteer work. If you don’t meet a new boyfriend that way, you may meet new friends who could introduce you to new boys.

Would You Date Someone for Cash?

  • No way! I think that's low!
  • Not for cash, but maybe for front row tix to a concert or something.
  • Maybe, if I borderline-liked him/her anyway.

My best friend is always wanting me to spend the night at her house, but because she keeps irritating me about it, i can't get my school work done and now i'm falling behind. How do I tell her how I feel without hurting her feelings?

They're great friends and I'm just... stupid. I'm sorry dear but things do get better and its not your fault. Everyone messes up, its just a part a life. If you need to talk and explain to me with more info you can, I'm here. :)    ^^This. You're not stupid either. Everybody makes mistakes and messes things up.
