Dear Dish-It, I Want to Get Plastic Surgery

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

Dear Dish-It,

I'm really self-conscious because I have been made fun of a lot about my ears and now I'm too afraid to ask a girl out. I need some advice because I'm thinking about plastic surgery but I don't know how to tell my dad. Thanks.

Dear bloodmen15,

Peeps sometimes go to extraordinary lengths to change they way they look and it rarely improves their lives the way they had hoped. Whether it's starving yourself to be thin, taking supplements to gain muscle or having plastic surgery to make your ears smaller, quick fixes almost always backfire on you.

The kids who tease you about your ears may not stop just because you get them pinned back or reshaped. More than likely, these kids are just dumb bullies who will go on to bug you cuz you've had plastic surgery. And, is plastic surgery suddenly going to make you an incredibly outgoing person, able to ask out girls left, right and center? Probably not. Before you think about going under the knife, you should probably focus on breaking out of your shy-shell. Talking with your dad (or even a school counselor,) about why you're so unhappy is a good idea. They may have ideas to get you out of that self-confidence slump that don't involve plastic surgery. If in a few years you are still unhappy with those ears of yours, then maybe you can talk with a doctor about your options. For now, get out there and ask a girl out. I bet there are a ton of 'em out there dying to get to know you better - ears included.

So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)

YESSSSSS ! ! ! I love make up but I dont wear as much as ppl think I do. doing full make up takes too long but I wear concealer if I have a pimple or something to cover. I usually have my nails done but u dont have to do those every day, just touch em up unless u want to change the color. when I feel like more than that I do my lashes, lips an maybe eyeliner if I have time. having fun is more important than make up.
