Dear Dish-It, How Do I Make Him Act Like My BF?

Dear Dish-It,

I already have a boyfriend, but it really doesn't seem like it. I love him so much and don't want to break up with him. The problem is that we almost never talk, hang out, go out or do any of that BF and GF stuff. He is too shy. I'm always the one making the right moves, but it never works out. All my friends say either he doesn't like me or he's not the one for me. What should I do to get us to get more active as BF and GF?

Dear Anonymous,

Sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, it just isn't meant to be. I know that's not exactly the advice you were looking for, but you do need to come to terms with the fact that your BF just might not be right for you. It sounds like you are looking for someone who you can spend lots of quality time with, chillin' with friends, going to movies, etc. But he is more interested in holing up at home by himself. Not exactly the makings for a successful relationship. You have a few options. Give him some space and hope that he'll snap out of it or call things off. Despite how much you care for him, you can't force someone to love you. It's not fair to either of you to continue on the way things have been going. You want a real, one-on-one relationship and he doesn't seem to want the same thing. Although it will be hard, it may be in your best interest to move on and find someone who will be just as into a relationship as you are. Good Luck!

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 he likes you, as a friend or as more.

    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

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
