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.

Maybe he likes you, as a friend or as more.

Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
