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 .

    It's normal to feel jealousy, and it's not really too bad a thing unless you let it get to you and cause problems. I get jealous as hell but I try to avoid letting it affect the way I hold a conversation, for example.

    So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?

    My best friend is autistic and mild to moderate on the spectrum. He has a daily routine and obviously keeps to it.  His sister who's 18 told me about his condition. And she spoke to me about how much help he needs around the house. My friend doesn't actually need all that much help, as his autism isn't that bad compared to others I know. He mainly suffers reading people's emotions, and having the confidence to make friends and talk aloud. But his sister did complain that he was always the needy one around the house when she was younger.  What you've got to understand is that autism affects people in different ways, no autistic person is the same, and so requires a different level of work and help towards them. Your brothers didn't ask for this. They were born like that. I know how it feels though, feeling left out. And feeling like your parents don't love you. They really do. They just don't have time to express that love, which is kinda sad really.  Maybe you could get involved in helping your brothers out. Depending on how old they are, you can educate them on reading emotions, and things like that. They're great life skills. Or simply just being there for them is something you can do. Autism itself is a pretty frustrating thing for the person who has it. My friend hates it, but tries to live with it as a gift. Just a little support can go a long way.
