Dear Dish-It, I Did Something I Regret

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

Dear Dish-It,

There's a boy on my bus who is, or was my friend, but one day he forced me into doing something I really regret. How do I tell him to slow down? And, can we still be friends?

Dear tha_hummingbird,

If things are uncomfy with this guy, then you've gotta say something. You can't go along with things that make you feel bad, or uncomfortable, just so you don't rock the boat. Just spell things out for this dude and tell him that you wanna take things really slow. If he has a prob with that, then he wasn't your friend in the first place.

Dear Dish-It,

I've had sex with numerous boys, (I used protection with all of them.) I didn't think there was anything wrong with that until a "supposedly" best friend decided to tell the whole school about it. She even started a few rumors (that I was pregnant, had AIDS etc.,) which aren't true, as I have regular check-ups with my clinic. Nobody seems to like me anymore and they shout abusive stuff at me in school, and out of school. I feel so depressed and I can't tell my 'rents, as I'm only 16 and they'll probably be ashamed of me. Please help.

Dear TrOuBlEd SiStA,

First off, it sounds like you've gotta get yourself some new friends. Instead of spreadin' lies, they should be trying to chat with you about why you've needed to have sex with numerous boys. Although it sounds like you've been smart and safe about the sex you're having, it's probably not the best thing to have had multiple partners before you even graduate high school. So dump the chumps you've been callin' friends and book yourself an appointment with the school counselor. They'll probably be able to help with the jerks at school and give you a person to chat with about what's a healthy sex life and what's not.

You should not have sex until you are married, not only because you could get pregnant, but even with protection you have a good chance of getting STDs. There are 16 and only half are curable and some are deadly.

What is the best way to get the word out that kids of any age should not have sex until they're married or until they know that there life is going to be spent with their boyfriend or girlfriend? I mean, come on! If they need help to know whether or not to sleep with a guy, why do they do it at all? And if there dying to have sex, maybe they need to talk to a person who is close to them and will understand or even knows what they are going through. Plus, why should they be thinking about boys, babies or sex, I mean sex isn't every thing. If they don't have the guts to ask their parent but ask you, that's just plain wrong!

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

    Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.

    Yes and no. Parents should be a bit strict on you if they care about you.  If they care about you they would be strict.
