Dear Dish-It, What Did I Do Wrong?


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.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends

Behaviour like that is not acceptable in the slightest. ​Teacher said to wait for the Bus Driver and the counselor, she just talks to me and doesn't tell The Princible
