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 .

    Maybe your overrating her personality while underrating yourself. Girls extremely like confident men so start working on your self esteem first because it stimulates interest to get to know you more especially on the romantic context and don`t forget to just be yourself so that you will know if she accept you to who you are and don`t let the "ideal boy" standard of the society bring you down. Remember that real happiness can be achieve when you are true to yourself so don`t mind what other people think of you and stop comparing yourself to the boys around her. Embrace your imperfections and wash away your insecurities and maybe she`ll like you back ;)

    Considering your age, it is normal that your parents might not accept it in case he likes you and the feeling is mutual and you must understand them. This is time when you need to focus in your studies and prepare for your future career and not for your future husband. You are still very young and trust me, you are still emotionally unprepared for this one heck of a roller coaster ride of emotions. Know the difference between loving that person and loving the feeling that you are in love. ;)

I am already back in school, I no longer have crutches thankfully. Also, i'd like to point out that they don't have social media, or at least, i'm not aware of it and I am out of school for two weeks for Christmas. Crushes are annoying lol. I have never been in a relationship either which makes things so much worst.
