Dear Dish-It, I Don't Want to Sound Like a Prude

Great advice for teens about relationships, love, dating and sex.
Advice About Relationships

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


Dear Dish-It,

I've been going out with this great guy for about two months now and before that we were really good friends. Before him, I'd never even been kissed before, so everything is new to me (not to him though). He says he's all about making me feel good but is there a way I can tell him that 'I don't want to go all the way' without sounding like a prude? Even though I know he doesn't care about the sexual stuff that much, I really love him and trust him. He hasn't pressured me about sex but I know he thinks about it. I'm ready for sex but I don't want to be one of those girls who loses her virginity in high school. What should I do?

Dear hihonajilie,

When you're dealing with something as important as losing your virginity, you can't be too concerned about making sure you hold onto your aura of cool. From the sound of your letter, you aren't ready for sex. But you know what? That's not something you should feel bad about. It's really cool that you know what you want out of life and you're being responsible about the choices that you're making. If your guy is as great as you make him out to be, you're not going to have to worry about sounding like a prude and being a big ol' loser. He's going to understand your concerns and he is going to respect you for your choices. Be strong and stick to your guns, cuz it's really easy to let other people dictate the way you should lead your life. 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 .

    You can probably search for cute plus size clothes on the internet to find places that sell clothes that fit. As for style just wear what you feel comfy in.

    Hiya. My cousin is getting married next Wednesday! The only thing is I really don't want to go. This may sound disrespectful and/or rude, but I don't really get along with his fiancé. I can't talk to her properly (incredibly stiff and hard to talk to her) and I don't think she likes me that much. Also, I'm kinda (largely) unsocial in big groups, and the fiancé apparently has a giant family coming. -.- Also, my dog -which we brought home a few months ago- hasn't had proper vaccinations (we found out she was slightly neglected and had matts everywhere. It must've been so painful) and can't get her into a kennel place (Kennel cough) or dog sitting service on such short notice. My mum will probably be staying home with her and dad and sister is going. But mum can't really say "I have to look after the dog" because they'll find it disrespectful and my cousin and his fiancé doesn't really like my at home family. The last resort is to make a excuse (but my mum doesn't really want to lie) and I'd like to make the excuse of I'm ill and mum needs to take care if me. If I have to go, does anyone have tips for going to a wedding you don't want to go to. sorry for long post,
