Dear Dish-It, I Don't Know How to Be a Girlfriend

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

Dear Dish-It,

Hi there. I love this website. Well anyways, this boy I have liked for a while just asked me to go with him and of course I said yes. But unfortunately, I don't know how to be a girlfriend or act like one. Can you please help me out? Tell me or give me some tips on how to act like a girlfriend.

Dear desperate GF,

The first rule for acting like a real girlfriend is to act like yourself. This boy you've been crushing on for all this time likes you because of who you are - not how you will act as his girlfriend. There are no real tips or rules to follow when you are dating someone. You just have to kind of go with the flow and most importantly, have fun. You shouldn't be stressed out about what to say or do around your BF - you should just try to be comfortable around him. If you're a bit nervous, that's normal. But if you totally clam up every time he's around and would prefer to be hiding under a rock than hanging out with him, then you might wanna re-think the whole dating thing until you're really ready for it. 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 .

    Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)
