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 .

    I think we all go through it,  I am right now. Keep your chin up, smile on, and remember that to be mean these girls have to sink pretty low, and if they are bullying you, YOU ARE ABOVE THEM!!!!! Keep your friends close, never forget to be who you are (as cheesy as it sounds, thats what I did and now I am really happy with loads of friends. I also told a teacher, she sorted it all out pretty quick to.) . Last thing-tell a teacher. I did, and she talked to the mean girl. Now everyone knows I'm not afraid to do it, either. Bad times will pass, and good ones will come. Look after yourself. Xx. *virtual hugs*

    Sure, I wear them a lot.  As long as you're not wearing the really tight kind, which should go with a dress or skirt or something, it's totally cool.
