Dear Dish-it: Hair Disaster!

May 21, 2013

Dear Dish-it,

There’s a guy I really like, but I just got my hair cut into a pixie. The boys in my class used to like me, but now only a few do. I asked my friend why and she said that boys like long hair. Now I’m not sure if the guy I like likes me back. My self-esteem is low. What should I do?

Dear GeekyChic,

Sometimes guys can be picky about hair length or color or other physical traits. But the truth is, winning a guy’s affection is not about looks in the long run. It’s about showing that you are confident with your new hairdo, and owning it as though you believe it’s the best you’ve ever looked. The more confidence you have, the more your crush will be attracted to you.

Stand Up For Yourself

It’s hard to be judged on something like this. But kudos to you for getting such a bold haircut. If anyone says anything negative about your haircut, remind them that Ashley Greene from Twilight and Emma Watson from Harry Potter both had pixie cuts, and lots of guys had crushes on them. Whether it was because of their looks or because they were sweet and kind, we may never know. The best you can do is be sweet and kind also, as well as confident. Stand up for yourself when people try to bring you down, and keep flirting.

Personality Is Everything

The guys in your class know you. They may have liked you for your look at first - there’s always that initial physical attraction - but it was your personality that ultimately won them over, otherwise they would have moved on quickly. So don’t let your haircut get you down. Show everyone in your class that a pixie cut is the new hot hairstyle, and maybe all the girls will want to copy you!

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
