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?

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

    Sometimes we get along all happily. Other times, conversations end with door slamming and yelling. Whenever I try to tell her that we need to work on this, she just says I'm being dramatic. It seems like one second we're laughing, then next we're fighting. She's 20, so the age difference is one of the problems. I really want to reconnect with my sister, but I don't know how. Help!

    Ugh. Usually on Wednesdays, I have a cherry coke t-shirt with some Jean shorts. That t-shirt got RIPPED. D: Anyways I can barely make it through the week. I have a closet full of clothes, but there's only about 8 t-shirts that are nice looking. Hopefully soon there'll be a new clothes store, and soon I'll start wearing my winter clothes, but I need help for the PRESENT. Any ideas?

    I would say just talk to the guy an ask him, but I know you would be scared. But anyway, just take it slow. Talk to the guy, an try to be friends with him. If he shows any signs of him liking you.. For example: He likes looking at you, tries to make you laugh, or likes being around you.. then that's mostly a sign.
