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 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.

    Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

    I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.

    I'm 12 years old, and for some reason I'm always sad. I got a gold medal in my gym, and I just started crying, but I wasn't crying because I was happy. I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated.

    I'm hoping to get my ears pierced, though I don't have the time or money to do it at the moment. Hopefully soon, though.
