Dear Dish-It, Should I Just Forget Her?

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

Dear Dish-It,

Hey, I'm 15 and in love. But my girl lives about 45 minutes away. My parents don't really like the idea that we met on the internet and they refuse to take me to where she lives. So we barley ever see each other, except for when my sis takes me up there. Is there a way for me to help them understand? Or should I just forget it and let it stay the same?

Dear ez_goer321123,

Although it probably seems like your 'rents are acting like big jerks right now, they've only got your best interests at heart. You've gotta understand that it might take them a while to warm up to the idea of you dating girls in general - let alone dating girls you met on the internet. Your best bet, in this situation, is to sit down with the 'rents and plead your case. Tell them why you think they should drive you to see this girl and why it is you like her in the first place. Offer up some compromises (like seeing if she can come see you one week instead of you always going there) and suggest some extra chores you could do to make up for the time and money it'll cost them to take you to see this girl. You still may not get what you want but at least you can say you tried. And hopefully the 'rents will warm up to the idea of you and this girl seeing each other sooner, rather than later!

    Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]

    I understand how hard this must be. Because I should probably take this advice too.. I would try and focus on school lessons and ignore others. Don't be afraid to join a club! If you go to one that interests you then you might meet someone with common interests. I hope you get through this.
