So... I went on that date with Kara. Me and Ben met up with her, Zoe, and two other peeps from our school at the mall and we saw Starsky and Hutch. It was funny. To tell ya the truth, I kinda only half paid attention. I was too busy thinking about what Kara was doing and whether she was laughing. She sat right beside me and we shared a bag of popcorn.

Go_Leafs_Go wrote me and suggested we grab a bite after the flick, so I suggested we all go for burgers. Well, turns out Kara is a vegetarian. Oops. But before I could feel like a loser, she suggested we go to this burrito place across the street from the mall. Turns out Mexican is her fave food. Anyway, only me, Kara, Ben and Zoe went for food. It was cool cuz it was like a real double date or something. I bought Kara's food, which she thought was super nice of me. (Yeah, it was). Everything was going awesome - she and I had tons to talk about like skateboarding and music (she digs Eminem and Jurassic 5 too). But then, Miguel and his stupid buddies showed up. Just my luck, my annoying, older brother picks the very same restaurant to eat in.

Man, he's a jerk! He came right over and started blabbing about how I'm his little brother and I wet the bed until I was 10 - which I so did not! He told Kara that I learned everything I know about skateboarding from him. He doesn't even own a skateboard. Loser! Luckily we had to go (Zoe and Kara had to be home by 10pm) so he didn't get to say too much. But man, I wanted to deck him.

I walked Kara back to Zoe's where she was sleeping over. We hugged for a long time and it was kinda weird because I think she thought I was going to kiss her, but I played it cool instead. Ben told me to not let her know how much I like her right off cuz she'll get bored. (And Ben's had two girlfriends, so he knows what he's talking about). I am going to call Kara later tonight cuz I haven't really seen her since the date, except in geo class but we couldn't talk.

On the homefront, Miguel won't stop walking around the house laughing and saying stupid things about me being in love with Kara. Mom actually threatened to ground him if he didn't lay off, but she's not much better. She thinks it's "adorable" that I have a "special friend." UGH! Anyway, dad doesn't care about my social life - he's too bent on my school life. He knows I have a science test and he's giving me the whole "pass or you're grounded" speech again, so I better go study. Not all of us are as nerdy as my science fair winning friend, Sindy. LOL - kidding, Sin!

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried

    She isn't jealous she is just dissappointed that you chose to get lessons when she did to get better . She had to get better to catch up to you so you can enjoyher as your best friend. Then you went ahead and got lessons as if you needed them. She is just upset that you showed off a talent that she didn't have. And she tried to get better to impress you but you got better as well. Which kept her at the stage she will always be at my best friend sings way betyer than me but I try.

    It may be hard but break it down to them we aren't friends but we can be associates. It may leave them a bit dissappointed but tell them we aren't in the same category to be as close as friends.
