Dear Dish-It, My Friend Tells My Crush All My Secrets
Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".
My best friend is real good friends with my crush. I'm always getting into arguments with my crush... and my friend is always telling my crush all my secrets. My crush has a lot of friends and is really popular. He tells everyone about my secrets. I've told my friend time and time again not to tell him, but she won't stop. What should I do?
Dear Really Confused,
You really are confused if you can't figure this one out. Stop telling your best friend your secrets! If you can't get a plug into her mouth, then maybe you should plug your own. But more important than that, I don't think you need this best friend art all. Where I come from, best friends don't tell each other's secrets to the rest of the world. Sure, people make mistakes and can accidentally blurt stuff out without meaning to, but this BFF of yours sounds like she's got no off switch. And as for the crush? No to him too! Why would you even want to date a guy who blabs the most private details of your life to the whole school? If he was a decent guy, he would've told your BFF to shut her trap. Sorry, but you need to raise your expectations when it comes to friends and boyfriends. Neither of them sound very cool, so I suggest you look around and see what other options are starin' ya in the face.
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.
