Dear Dish-It, I Like a Guy Who Dated My Best Friend


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


Dear Dish-It,

I really like this guy and he likes me too, but he went out with my best friend. He said he wants to go out with me and I want to go out with him, but I don't know what to do. I need help!

Dear Amy_03,

Did you like this boy before or after he started seeing your BFF? Cuz here's the deal - it's sketchy if you wanna hook up with her ex. Actually, it's always sketchy where a friend and a boy are involved in the same problem. Talk to your girl. If they're done, some time has passed and she's cool with the idea of her ex and you together, then you've got the green light. But don't be surprised if she can't deal. It's her right. Remember, boys will come and go, but you will only have a few really good friends in life. So value her over him.


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.

    Would You Date Your Friend's Ex?

    • Never! Friendship is most important.
    • Maybe, if I asked first and everyone was cool with it.
    • In a flash! You can't make claims over exes.
    • I'm not sure.

    So I have a secret, and it could ruin all of my best online relationships if revealed. I'm not going to say much about it, because it is, after all, a secret. But I'm pretending to be two people at once, so neither one is really truly myself- they both contain different aspects of me. I didn't think I'd grow close to anybody with my second persona, but then I did, and all this mess started. It's been going on for maybe three months now, that I've been pretending to be two people. I don't want to tell anyone, because it could ruin my friendships. But i don't want to keep it a secret anymore, either.

    I'm going to a new school this year for 7th grade. Its scary because the reviews online say that the kids do nasty things there, and I just want to be accepted for who I am. I want to be the one person that every one feels comfortable talking to..but the issue is, I am shy around people I do not know and it causes me to be an introvert when I can be such a social butterfly. All I need is that one friend and i'll feel on top of the world. How do I make friends and get them to accept me for who I am? The thing that most people talk about is LGBT and to be honest, I have no preference. I could date a boy or a girl. That would make it even harder to gain friends. Please help ;-; I am a potato. A shy potato :3

To change your eye color, you will need to either wear contacts during the day to appear that you have different colored eyes than you truly have, or medically having a doctor perform surgical iris correction.

    I hope you texted back if you felt that it would be the right thing to do for yourself. I did not have a good childhood due to my birthmother and father. But, in recent time, I have come to enjoy talking to my birthfather and completely cannot stand my birthmother or her new husband anymore. I plan to actually meet him for the first time in 16 years if I can join my fiancé's family vacation.  Point of the matter, do what you feel is right. If you want to talk to him; talk to him. If you don't, don't reply if you don't feel comfortable too. It is purely your choice who you allow in your life, even when it comes down to blood and family.

    It isn't pathetic in the slightest to seek help. I don't think it is right for your mother and siblings to completely disown you over your choice of living arrangements. If they have pushed you away, remember that it is not your fault and it is purely theirs. You made a choice that you felt would benefit you, and judging from their behavior, it was a good choice. As for your father, I don't fight with my own very much, but when I do it tends to be pretty bad. My mother on the other hand, I fight with constantly so I understand where you're coming from. You shouldn't have to do anything. From the sound of it, it seems more like a personal issue going on with himself, especially a sense of shame or regret with his previous exes so he uses you as an outlet because you're the closest thing he has.  I say find an outlet, a healthy one. Sometimes it is best to let them ramble on until they wear themselves out, but remember that self-defense and "talking back" is not always a bad thing just because they are your guardian. It is important to take a stand for yourself. Be respectful, don't sink to their level.
