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 .

Do You Wanna Change Your Body?

  • No way! I love the way I look.
  • I'd like to change a couple things about my body.
  • I've thought about it but for the most part I like my body.
  • Yeah, I hate my appearance.

Sometimes you feel annoyed with a sibling and you just don't know the RIGHT way to deal with it. I'm telling you right now that all that tension, the trouble, the annoyance can stop. But it's up to you.  LITTLE SIBS  [s:p/1koi] My BEST trick is to ignore. Act like  you have no problem with them. And move on, they'll EVENTually give up, TRUST ME. I've tried on my littles sisters.  BIG SIBS  [s:p/1jmr-en] They can be a bit... SASSY I am one anyway but you need to NOT mess with t hem. Even if this is coming from one herself, act like you have NO problem and be kind to them, surprise surprise! They might listen.   [s:p/1kka] Ya friend and Advisor

If you've ever thought your style wasn't right or you needd a style change think about how YOU want the new you to be like. It YOU anyway. What do you ENJOY wearing? What do you think will be most trendy? And maybe your parents might be like mine and might not APPROVE of your outfit. Think about you. Don't try to change to someone else but the new you  [s:p/1kk9] Your friend and advisor,

Well I say don't deal with your friend I mean comfort her and all but if she's doing all that I would leave her alone let her parents deal with it you guys are just kids ending your life isn't the solution and you seem like a really caring person but ####### help from the internet isn't to answer Tell her parents or let her see to see an therapist or something But don't let other people drag you down into depression

I have 3 close friends at school. Outside of school I have one. I'm soon going up to Secondary school. 2 of my friends, Kathryn and Sophie, are quite mean to me and others in the class. They call me names and push me around. I don't like it but afraid to tell them. They are also quite rude to teachers. When it's just me and Kathryn it's fine and I am wondering if it's just Sophie making an impression. I go to a small school (81 pupils) and making friends is hard for me. Please help!!
