Dear Dish-It, I'm Nervous About My First Kiss


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


Dear Dish-It,

Ok, I've had a lot of boyfriends, but I have never actually kissed one before. I'm scared that I'll get nervous when it finally does happen. My face gets red when I'm embarrassed and my hands will probably get sweaty and I don't wanna make a fool of myself. But I can never help it. And I'm totally fine with it, but all this stuff just happens... is there anything I can do? Thanks.
ahhhh


Dear ahhhh,

First, take a nice deep breath. There's no reason to stress over something that hasn't happened yet and you don't really know when it's going to happen either. A first kiss is something that you usually don't plan - it just happens at the right time. I know that's a really lame answer, but it's true. If you try and plan something like your first kiss then of course you are going to be nervous and sweaty. But if you just go with the flow and let things take their course, chances are that kiss is going to come when you absolutely least expect it - you won't have time to get embarrassed. And you know what? Even if you are nervous, that's ok. Being a bit nervous is totally natural and we all get those butterflies in our stomach before going in for that big first smooch. Hope this helps!


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 .

    I completely understand. I'm non-binary, meaning I identify as neither boy or girl. I'm more of a mix of the two, or somewhere in between. I'm not comfortable with identifying as a girl, but not completely identifying as a boy either. Idk, I'm rambling, it's pretty complicated. The point being, identity is a personal matter. If you honestly feel as if you should've been born a boy, maybe you're transgender. Or maybe you're transgender in the sense that you're a mix of the two, or neither at all. Find something that suits you. Don't worry about what other people say or how they perceive you. What matters is how you feel comfortable. Like looking at my profile right now you'd definitely think I'm a cisgender girl but no, that's not me. And it does not define me either. People calling you a boy does not define you either, unless that's what you want of it.

    My best friend is a guy. Yep, ad you guessed, I've begun to like him. He's liked me for a long time... but here come why I haven't asked him out. I can't date. I'm not allowed. Talk about a bummer. We give each other sweet notes and gifts, so Id like to count that, but here comes anot her bummer I only see him once a week. So I want to ask his number, but I would have to text him on my mom's phone. I don't have a problem with this, but now I don't know how to ask his numb3r. Advice?
