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!

hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
