Dear Dish-It, My BF Gets Mad and Takes It Out on Me!

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

Dear Dish-It,

My boyfriend is really sweet and nice sometimes, but a lot of times, he gets really mad and takes it out on me! I really like him, but I'm scared to say anything to him because I don't want to make him mad or make things worse. What should I do?

Dear risk_taker,

You need to break up with him, girl. The sooner, the better! It's normal for people to get mad, but what's important is how they deal with their anger. If your boyfriend is taking his anger out on you, whether it's by making insulting comments or physically hurting you, he's definitely not dealing with his anger in a good way. You shouldn't put up with him or his behavior, so kick him to the curb and get as far away from him as possible! If you don't break up with him now, he'll just have more chances to hurt you.

If you continue to feel scared, or even threatened by him, talk to your parents, teachers or a school counselor. It's actually a good idea to talk to them now and fill them in on the situation so they can keep an eye on him. I said it before, but I'll say it again - break up with him now. He's not worth your time if he doesn't treat you well 24/7. That doesn't mean he has to pamper you and worship the ground you walk on (but wouldn't that be nice?); it means he has to treat you with respect. You deserve better and you know it!

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

    Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
