Dear Dish-It, Nobody Asked Me to Dance!


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


Dear Dish-It,

I just recently got back from my very first middle school dance, and you know what? Nobody danced with me! Every single one of my friends, whether they wore a cute dress or not, got asked to dance except me! I was just walking around while my friends were off dancing with someone. I came home feeling sorry for myself and broken-hearted. I know somebody must like me, but maybe they just haven't collected the courage to tell me.

Dear IwuvSD,

It takes a lot of courage, especially for guys in middle school and high school, to ask girls to dance cuz they're just as scared of rejection as you are! So don't be so hard on yourself that you didn't get to dance this time around cuz there's definitely someone for everyone, including you. He may not come along right this second but chances are, there's someone crushin' on you - he's just a bit shy! If there's someone in particular that you have your heart set on, why not ask them to dance next time? There's no rule that girls can't be the first one to make the move! Your friends may be dancing now, but in the long run, you'll find that special someone to dance the night away with too!


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 .

    How Do You Know You're Crushing?

    • I daydream about the person 24/7.
    • I feel like I'm gonna puke.
    • I blush big-time!
    • All of the above - and so much more.

    I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

    Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

    You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
