Dear Dish-It, I'm in Love With a Goth

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

Dear Dish-It,

Hey, I have so much to say and nobody will listen. I like a gothic guy but I'm a prep and I know it's really rude not to want any one to know but I worked hard on my rep. I try to talk to my parents but they don't agree with his rebellious ways! What can I do? I don't even know if he likes me. I'm scared of putting myself out there, just to get knocked off.

Dear ocean_eyes,

I have to admit that I feel pretty bad for the guy you are crushing on. You say you really like him but you're embarrassed to tell anyone cuz you're afraid of ruining your reputation. How do you think that would make him feel? Nobody wants to be someone else's dirty little secret. Either you like this boy or you don't. Chances are you like him because he's a bit rebellious and goth - so why would you be embarrassed to let peeps know that? If your friends are going to judge you because of who you choose to date, then they're probably not worth having as friends. Talk to this guy if you are interested - but don't expect him to carry on some secret relationship behind closed doors so that you can continue to be popular and rebellious all at the same time.

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 .

    Write an anonymous note. And tell him to put it somewhere that only you can get it back to see what he says.

    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.
