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.

    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
