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 .

    My best friend and I were really close before and hung out all the time, we were both in musicals and both got smaller parts, and if one of us got a bigger part, it was her. Then she took voice lessons with an amazing voice teacher and got a little better, she took lessons for about two weeks and then I decided to take lessons too. After about three weeks people were saying that I was an amazing singer and all of the sudden my maybe-best-friend hardly talks to me. She always seems really sad. (Keep in mind that my friend can't sing well) I don't know if she is jealous or what, and please don't think that i'm conceited by thinking she might be jealous I am just wondering. Please help!

Try to impress your grandmother with something that you`re good at ( I mean in the positive way) like joining debate/dancing/singing competitions--> try your best to achieve something and make them proud of you.   thanks but even when I was 5 6 and 7 she played favorites. I almost always get along with my cousin but sometimes I burst. my grandma always somehow finds out what I want and gives it my cousin and if my parents are around she treats us equally and that is another thing that makes me mad is she acts like the best grandma in front of my parents but the second they are gone she is a different person
