Dear Dish-It, He's Going to Ditch Me for His Skateboard

Dear Dish-It,

Me and my boyfriend Alex have been going out for almost three months. Everything was going fine 'til he started skateboarding again. Now it seems like there's no time left for me. What am I supposed to do? What if he decides to give me up for skateboarding?!

Dear ~lilmissrocker92,

Okay, it's time to take a deep breath and relax. It's easy to get caught up in new relationships, especially when you and your new guy seem to be so perfect for each other. However, even though it can be a lot of fun to have a BF, it's not essential to spend 24/7 with him. Just because you're in a relationship, doesn't mean you should cut out everything else that's important to you. Obviously skateboarding is important to your boyfriend and you have to respect that. If you want to spend more time with him, why don't you head down to the skate park sometimes and watch him do his thing? Or spend time with your friends after school and hang out with Alex on the weekends. Being part of a couple means you have to learn to compromise. I doubt your BF is going to ditch you for his skateboard, but if you try to force him to spend his every waking minute with you, he may want to call it quits. Give him some space - it's healthy and you'll both appreciate the time you do spend together a lot more.

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 .

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
