Dear Dish-It, He Follows Me Around a Lot

Dish-It serves up advice about crushes, dating and rejection.
Dear Dish-It

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.

    Best Way to Say, "I Don't Dig You"?

    • Be straight up and say, "Dude, you're not for me."
    • Say nothin' - ignore them until they get the hint.
    • Set them up with someone else.
    • Do nothing - it's nice to have people crushin' on me!

    You need to clear things up with your best friend, and express to her what you feel because friendship requires open communication for it to last. Likewise, you should also take into consideration that not because she`s your best friend and she knows that you like this guy, she`s not allowed to be friends and eventually have a romantic relationship with this guy. Love does not follow a first come first serve basis, that`s reality.  Now, if you really love or like that person then you should be happy for him. True love means putting someone else`s happiness before your own EVEN IF you`re not part of that happiness. There`s a reason for everything, someday this will all make sense. :)
