Teen Dating Advice

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


Dear Dish-It,

I'm 15 and a sophomore. I took one of my friends to homecoming this year. She really wanted to go and I was reluctant... I'm not really good with formal dances and entertaining girls I guess. Now she's upset and won't even talk to me anymore. What have I done? How can I fix the problem and be friends again? NEED HELP ASAP!

Dear tripleJ,

You're not giving me a whole lot of details to go on about this date of yours, so it's hard to say why your friend might be mad at you. By the sounds of it though, this girl has probably been crushin' on you for a long time and was super stoked when you agreed to go to homecoming with her. How did you act once you got to the dance? Did you ditch her to hang out with your friends? Did you dance with her at all while you were there? Girls can be hard to figure out sometimes, but a good rule to follow is that girls like attention - especially from boys. They need you to make a bit of an effort to let them know how you feel about them. It's not about "entertaining" a girl, it's about being interested in what they say, who they hang out with and things they do. Talk to your friend and ask her what's up. Chances are she won't be really eager to spill her guts, but just asking her will make her feel like you care. If she did have a crush on you, she might be taking it kind of hard that you didn't like her back - but, given a little bit of time, she'll get over it and you guys can go back to being good friends.


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 .

    Do You Go to School Dances?

    • I've been to one or two.
    • I might go if someone asked me.
    • No way! School dances suck.

    Be careful little dude, the road will be real tough, your mind will start working differently but it will happen so slowly you won't even notice it... You'll start to notice thing you hadn't seen before, things you'd rather have ignored the whole time. and boom your no longer a kid so to speak. Friends leaving you? are they younger than you? cause you can just tell them their voices will break too. My 7 year old cousin called me a "Teenagerk" and I didn't even do anything jerkworthy... I was just a Teen and that's all that mattered. I unfortunately don't think I have any particularly good advice for you, but I totally understand... It takes great determination to carry on living... but it is worth trying...
