Dear Dish-It, My Friends Ditched Me

Friendship Advice

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

My two best friends in the whole world and I all went shopping. Then, unexpectedly, they darted off while we were just sitting there! So I called my dad to pick me up. But then I thought if he knew they darted from me, I wouldn't be allowed back to the mall. So I said, "Oh! dad, they were right behind me the whole time! I'm so dumb..." and said goodbye and went to find my friends. I didn't know what to tell them when I found them, so I said that I had to phone my dad "For advice." That excuse was lame, but, whatever. They were all ticked-off at me for calling my dad and making them look bad. Then at school, my two friends made people run around saying, "OH MY GOD, Kyra! I lost whomever! Do you have a quarter so I could phone my mom for advice?" I'm wondering if my friends are worthy enough to be my friends? I would never want to dump them, ever. What should I do?
Queen Kyra


Dear Queen Kyra,

Sometimes even our best friends in the whole world can act like complete jerks. That doesn't mean that you still can't be friends with them but maybe you just need to let them know that you don't appreciate being treated like a lemon-flavored Skittle - only good enough to be nice to when there's no one else around. Hopefully they will soon realize that they really miss your friendship and will come crawling back, begging for forgiveness. If they continue to act like three year-olds who forgot to take their afternoon nap, then go and make yourself some new friends. We all act stupid sometimes, but if they are really worthy of your frienship, they will shape up very soon!


My friend Sam did that and she started hanging around with the popular kids and she was all mean to me and my best bud. I decided if she was gonna be mean that I would just tell them that I don't want to be friends with someone who is gonna pick on me.

    I'm not trying to be rude...but don't do the hair thing. Just don't. I know a lot of guys and they don't like flirty girls. Just be friend first and if he seems interested, and if you are ready for it, talk to your parents about going a little farther. One again, I'm not trying to be mean, but I just want you to be safe ;)

    Just casually walk up to him, say Hi, look your best on that day. i mean, it can't hurt. Talk to him! Hang out! Have lunch. Flip your hair when he's looking your way. Be nice, not pushy.     Wish you luck!  :hippie :D
