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.

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 just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
