Dear Dish-It, She's Acting Different

Love Advice For Teens

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


Dear Dish-It,

There's this girl that I asked out to the movies the other night (my first date). I've been friends with her a while now, but after that she's been acting really differently. Then there are two complicating factors: everyone in school now knows we are dating and her parents won't let her go out with me cuz she's been getting pretty bad grades lately. So what should I do? She's the girls of my dreams. She's smart and funny and pretty and nice, and I'm sure that she likes me.

Dear TK89,

Since this was only your first date, it's totally natural for your girl to still be nervous around you. All of this dating/relationship stuff is foreign to her so you being affectionate to her in front of her friends isn't something she's used to. That doesn't mean she doesn't like you or that she won't warm up and become more affectionate herself as you two get to know one another. Your real problem lies with her parents. If she has been forbidden to date you that could cause some serious showdowns with the 'rents if they ever find out.


So, I say, hang out with one another, go to movies and do stuff with friends. Just hold off on announcing yourself as an official couple. This way you'll avoid conflict with her 'rents and you'll still become more comfortable in each other's company. Good Luck.


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 .

    Sometimes we get along all happily. Other times, conversations end with door slamming and yelling. Whenever I try to tell her that we need to work on this, she just says I'm being dramatic. It seems like one second we're laughing, then next we're fighting. She's 20, so the age difference is one of the problems. I really want to reconnect with my sister, but I don't know how. Help!

    Ugh. Usually on Wednesdays, I have a cherry coke t-shirt with some Jean shorts. That t-shirt got RIPPED. D: Anyways I can barely make it through the week. I have a closet full of clothes, but there's only about 8 t-shirts that are nice looking. Hopefully soon there'll be a new clothes store, and soon I'll start wearing my winter clothes, but I need help for the PRESENT. Any ideas?

    I would say just talk to the guy an ask him, but I know you would be scared. But anyway, just take it slow. Talk to the guy, an try to be friends with him. If he shows any signs of him liking you.. For example: He likes looking at you, tries to make you laugh, or likes being around you.. then that's mostly a sign.
