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.

Have Your Say

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.

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
