Dear Dish-it, How Do I Get Him to Notice Me?

Dear Dish-It,

I know this guy in school... I don't want to say his name, but he and I went out off-and-on last year. That's when I fell in love with him, but he doesn't like me. We just went out a month ago... I can't get him to notice me. I wish he'd like me, but he tries to act cool at school with his friends. When school's out and I talk to him, he doesn't try to act cool. How do I get him to notice me? My friends say he likes this one girl, but when I asked him, he said no. Then I asked him who he likes and he said he's not going to tell me. We are good friends. Do you think this is a sign that he likes me or not? Please tell me.

Dear hot_angel,

So I understand that you like him and he doesn't like you back, but I'm not sure when you went out. Last year... or last month? And what's up with the "how do I get him to notice me?" when you say you're friends with him and you dated in the past? That shows he already noticed you. But don't get all excited yet because my advice isn't going to be easy to hear. This guy is playing you because he's too cool to talk to you at school, but totally friendly afterwards on the way home. He's obviously treating you like you're not good enough, and who needs that? You certainly don't.


You may not realize this yet, but he's not a cool person and definitely not boyfriend-material. Keep up your friendship, but stop stressin' over him. Sooner or later, one of two things will happen - he'll either realize that he's been a fool and start treating you better (and maybe even win you back), or continue to act the way he does now. And if that's the case, then he isn't worth any of your time.


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 don't have ADHD, but I know plenty about it. One of my friends has ADHD and Tourette's, and the teachers were always turds about it. Anyway, i think that a good way to deal with ADHD acting up is either changing medication or trying to eat foods or drinks with caffeine. I'm not sure if it works for you, but a lot of people with ADHD have seen significant improvements after putting caffeine in their systems. If your friends are acting like turds, you need better friends. I hope my advice helps.

    Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

    Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!
