Dear Dish-It, We Hardly Talk Anymore

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 .

    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
