Dear Dish-It, I Like This Girl Who Lives in Another Country


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


Dear Dish-It,

I like this girl, but she lives in another country. I will see her in a month and I don't know what to do about it.
Infierno


Dear Infierno,

Wow, a long distance relationship, huh? Those are NEVER easy and, I hate to bring ya down, but they rarely work out. But hey, I'm not one to stand in the way of Cupid, so here's my advice - take it slow. You seem totally psyched to be seeing your girl in a month and that's cool. But her "visit" probably won't be enough time to really get to know her. Online chats, emails and even old-fashioned snail mail are good ways of getting to know someone who lives far away. You could even ask your parents if you can call her on the phone, if it doesn't cost them too much money. And if you're able to save up enough cash, you could go visit her in her country next summer! 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 .

    While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.

    I don't even think that legal for a adult to marry a teen I think you should ask that part to make sure my theory is correct

    Do your parents know her parents? Maybe you could get your parents to speak to hers. Or if not, maybe tell her parents yourself that you're concerned. Try speaking to her and making sure she's 100% sure about what she's doing?

    So last year my friend got engaged at the age of sixteen to a guy of twenty-one and they only dated for 5 months at the time. I'm afraid she's making a mistake. They're still together, but her guy seems like he has a temper and might get abusive in the future.  What should I do?
