Dear Dish-It, I Should Give Up Looking for the One


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


Dear Dish-It,

My boyfriend and I were going out for a very long time and then he broke up with me. He never said why, but I'll never forget that day. Just because someone else liked him... he broke my heart. I cried and cried for a long time, and I didn't go to school the next day. Why? So I wouldn't have to deal with it anymore. I still cry about it. My friends tell me to let it go, but I don't think I can. I thought he was the one for me, but I guess not. I should just give up looking for the one. Maybe it might work out next time with me and him hopefully. What should I do?

Dear Brit,

You're sad and you're hurt and that's totally understandable. But girl, how old are you? By the way you're talkin', it sounds like you're 29 pushing 30! Stop talkin' nonsense. If you're a Kidzworld member, you're probably between nine and 16, which means you're too young to know "the one" or to give up looking! The fact is that there are going to be lots of guys in your future. Many will seem like "the one" and many will turn out to be the wrong one. Odds are, one day you'll meet someone who is the right one. But even if that doesn't happen, what of it? Life isn't simply about finding Mr. Right. Life is about making yourself right, as in Righteous, Right On or Doing the Right Thing. Build yourself into a strong and independent person and everything else will fall into place. Oh, and one more thing - if you're not right with yourself, Mr. Right won't recognize you when your paths do cross.


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 .

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
