Dear Dish-it: Awkward Sleepovers

May 10, 2013

Dear Dish-it,

I’m having a new friend over for a sleepover tonight, and I don’t know what we should do. I have computers, but I don’t think that’ll be good enough. What should I plan?

Nervous

Dear Nervous,

It’s always exciting and nerve-racking to have a new friend sleepover for the first time. But there are tons of things you can do. However, I suggest that you start by getting to know this friend a little better. Talk to them and find out what kind of things they do for fun at home or with their other friends.

Outdoor Activities

If the weather is nice and warm, you could have a camp out. Prepare snacks for the tent, set it up in your backyard, and tell scary stories like you would on a real camping trip. If you have a firepit in your backyard, get your parents help to light it and roast marshmallows or make smores! If it’s still light out when your sleepover begins, suggest some outdoor sports, like frizbee, badminton, basketball or any other sport you can play with two people.

Indoor Activities

If you’re stuck indoors, no worries. You could pop some popcorn and have a movie night, or better yet, a movie marathon. You could make dare dice out of a small square box or six pieces of square cardboard taped together to make a cube. On each side you write things like “dance” or “sing” or “act” and the other person has to pick a theme or topic. You could also play cards, board games or video games. Or, if you have a camera phone, film yourselves putting on a fashion show, or having an arm wrestling competition. The ideas are endless!

I'm an older sister to a 13 year old brother. Neither of us really agree on much, either. I prefer this, he prefers that. I prefer that, he prefers this. It's natural regarding age differences. Even just a years worth can hold plenty. It's best to meet in the middle with things. Like, my brother and I for instance don't really agree on anything. But, it's good to meet somewhere with things to do together whether its agreeing on a movie to watch or playing a video-game together. Even drawing or helping each other out with something. Just keep in mind, when it comes to this, you won't always want to do what they want.

I understand this situation. Personally, you can tell your sister if you're completely sure on what happen. But, make sure she stays quiet about it until you both come to an agreement on when you should confront your parents about what you saw.

Here's something to think about @IlikeGUYS20, I can say this about myself, and I'm sure, from this post, you'd agree. I'd love to have a girlfriend, and I'd also love to have a boyfriend. I'd be open to date any gender that my romantic partner would claim. We should just see what makes us happy before we label ourselves. Thanks! :)Have a wonderful day!:rainbow ❤

You should grow comfortable with yourself before you come out. If you're not certain if you are indeed bi, then you shouldn't slap that label on yourself yet. Take some time to really think about how you feel, but don't worry too much about it. Your sexuality isn't everything. You have plenty of time to discover yourself as person. Don't rush it.
