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 .

    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?
