Teen Dating Tips

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 .

    what're are you talking about??!!ur an awesome advise giver, but I do go to a type of therapy, its a strengthening families therapy thing, i's like three hours long, and I'm like the oldest person there, so that probably won't work, but u seem like an awesome person can I friend u??!! btw thanks for the advice I doesnt understand how your the oldest person there when its the strengthening families therapy thing and does your family go?   Thanks though and me advise is when you walk in the next time go up to the therapist and ask her / him that you would appreciates if you can have the quiet word without anyone listening.  And then tell her/ him how your feeling.  This seems like one person you can tell Yush of course and I will accept :) Your welcomes and I will do me best :angel

    Ello and I am sorry your going through all this pain. Your  being strong for everyone else trying to put on the happy smiley face and at the same time your feeling so miserables.  You said in your post that you already does go to the type of therapy.  Is there any way you can talk to someone at the therapy sessions and say you need to talk about this? Sometimes you has to say you has the problem cos right now your giving the signal that your ok cos your hiding your feelings. Im the horrible advise giver but im the good friend and i care and if you wanna comment me then i will do me best to be your friend and listen :love
