Dear Dish-It, We Hardly Talk Anymore

kids articles

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

Dear Dish-It,

I met this guy on chat and we are on each other's buddy lists. A while after I met him I met his brother and I got to know his brother and he asked me to [kwlink]be his girlfriend[/kwlink]. I said yes and we got in to a really good relationship but after a while he got too serious and started asking for my phone number and P.O. Box number. My mom said no but he gave me his. It has been a while and I haven't seen him much. He hardly e-mails me. I am really worried that [kwlink]he is cheating[/kwlink]. What should I do?

Dear liv22,

I think you may be taking the word "relationship" a little too seriously. You met a boy online and he asked you to be his girlfriend. That's all fine and good but it doesn't make for a serious relationship. You can't exchange personal info (at least on your part), so you don't talk on the phone, you don't actually see one another and you haven't emailed one another for quite a while. Cyber-dating is not the same as dating-dating. Instead of worrying whether this guy is cheating or not, maybe you should just be glad that you made a cool friend and focus your attention on boys you can actually hang out with in person. Oh yeah, and your mom made a good call by not letting you give out your digits and other personal stuff because this guy (any guy, girl or puppy) on the internet may not be who he says he is.

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 .
