Dear Dish-It, Will I Ever Have a Chance?


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


Dear Dish-It,

I consider myself a nice guy and even though I don't really want a girlfriend, I feel that I am a better person than most guys. A lot of nice girls go out with guys that treat them like dirt and they just seem to go along with it even though they deserve better. My question is - will they ever notice me? Will I ever have a chance?

Dear mrsocks,

You know that saying, "Nice guys always finish last,"? Well, although it's not entirely true, it's also not entirely wrong. When you're in high school, girls and guys are trying desperately to figure out the whole dating thing. Most of the time, peeps end up dating the wrong person, but that's sort of part of the process. I don't know why girls are drawn to jerks - there are probably a million explanations since each situation is unique. One reason girls end up with those unworthy guys is because they're the ones that get out there and ask girls out. You are never going to have a chance with the ladies if you aren't willing to stick your neck out and let that special girl know how you feel. Sound scary? It is. But, there is definitely someone out there for everyone (even Ozzy Osbourne found true love). So, while you may not get the results you are looking for in the love department right away, girls are going to notice you eventually. So hang in there, and just let those other jerks race ahead of you, cuz in the long run, you'll be the one to find true love.


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 .

    While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

    I don't even think that legal for a adult to marry a teen I think you should ask that part to make sure my theory is correct

    Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

    So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
