Dear Dish-It, He Won't Stop Asking Me Out!
A boy has asked me out 50 times and he won't stop asking. He is mentally ill. What do I do? Can't get him out of my hair!
Wow, someone has a major crush on you, huh? He's not mentally ill, he's just a little thick when it comes to the hints - or have you not dropped any hints? Have you told this guy, "Thanks, but no thanks?" You need to be clear and direct, but not hurtful. Just say straight up that you're flattered, but not interested in him. If you've done that and he's still in your hair, then tell him that he's not being cool. Tell him that he's gotta respect your wishes to be left alone and that his constant crushin' is not winning him any points. That should do the trick. Lemme know how it goes, k?
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 Dish-It here. Send all of your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,We'll dish 'em up, too.
