Dear Dish-It, I Like Him, but He's Not Smart


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


Dear Dish-It,

First of all, I like this boy named Brandon and he likes me. We would make a good couple, but he acts real stupid and he had to take summer school this past summer. I don't want a boy who is not smart... but I like him. Should I forget about him or get with him?

Dear GhettoSista,

If I were Brandon, I think I would be running in the opposite direction! If you really liked him, you wouldn't be so judgmental and talk about him like he's been diagnosed with a contagious case of stupidity. What exactly do you like about Brandon? Is it because you think he's cute? Because if that's the only reason, then it's not good enough. Sure, this guy had to go to summer school, but that doesn't make him a loser. If it bugs you so much, then stay away from him and date someone in the chess club. The last thing anyone needs is someone who makes them feel stupid or like they're not good enough - and it sounds like that would happen if you dated 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.

I'm in 8th grade and I ride the bus with a friend of mine. He's in 6th grade. Recently, I've had all of these weird feelings and I think I like him. He's so young but he already has a girlfriend. I couldn't get in the way of that. PLUS, everyone would make fun of me. I can't tell anyone this because I know I'll be judged.  What do I do?  :rain  :mad

My best friend's ten-year-old sister weighs close to that much, and she looks nowhere near fat. But even if you're shorter than most, I wouldn't worry about it until a lot later in your life, because kids tend to "grow into" their weight. BMI isn't always accurate, too, though; my BMI marks me as overweight, but I'm told by lots of people I'm average-looking.If you want to worry about it now anyways, I'd talk to a pediatrician or your parents or some other adult before taking action, and listen to any advice they may have. Made a typo first time around. Fixed it. First sentence said "weight" instead of "height".
