Dear Dish-It, He Follows Me Around a Lot


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


Dear Dish-It,

I have a guy that I do not like. He follows me around a lot. I asked him to leave me alone, but he said no. What should I do?
Constanton


Dear Constanton,

There are two extremes in this case, and a bunch of options in between. This guy could be a sweet boy who just wants to be your friend (or is maybe crushin' on ya, in case you're a girl,) which is, either way, kinda flattering. On the other hand, he could be a lunatic and you should get a restraining order against him!


I wish you would've given me some more details, like how much older or younger he is than you, or what you mean when you say he "follows you around a lot." Like, do you mean he sits at the next table during lunchtime at school, or he hides in the bushes at night in front of your house? The fact that he refused to leave you alone, even though you asked him to, really concerns me. You don't have to run off to the police right now and get this guy in trouble for wanting to be your friend, but you need to tell your parents or teacher that he's buggin' ya and won't go away. If there's anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe, or creeped out about this, tell someone! This can be a very flattering or very frightening deal, so which one is it? Write me back with more details about your problem and I'll be sure to dish out more advice!


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 deardish@kidzworld.com. 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.

    Theres nothing to it.  Juss tell them.  No 'u should if u feel like it,' or anything like tht.  Whts the point of having them go nxt yr juss to find out tht u skipped without telling them.  They cant do anything about it either so juss tell them.  "I am skipping a grade nxt yr.  Theres no point in u guys being mad bc this is a big deal for me and I can't do anything about it."  Thats all.

    What it says above. I don't want to come off as rude, but I don't want stupid advice that doesn't help like "u should if u feel like it" because that doesn't help. I want it exactly how I should do it. I shall have to as time is winding down. If you won't do as I request and/or don't know how to follow such simple directions, just don't post! It isn't helpful. Oh, and please, please do not say "well don't brag" or take my peers' point of view. I am not bragging. I am INFORMING.
