Dear Dish-It, Should I Ask Him Out?

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

Dear Dish-It,

I totally like this guy in my class, and my friends all say he totally likes me too. But I think he's shy cuz he never talks to me, so I wanna ask him out. The thing is my mom's all, "girls don't call boys." So what should I do?

Dear HisGirl,

Sooo, what do you want first, the good news or the bad news? Umm, maybe the guy doesn't talk to you cuz he doesn't know you exist! Did ya stop to think that maybe your not HisGirl. Okay, maybe that's a bit harsh, but really, maybe he's not interested. The good news is your mom's theory about dating, thankfully, died off with the dinosaurs and Rico Suave's career. It is totally cool for you to make the first move. Any guy who has issues with a girl who knows what she wants and goes for it, isn't worth a Rico Suave CD. You've gotta remember one thing though, (and this is where my cold harsh words come back into play) you can't please all the people all the time. Not everyone is going to love you and think you're the greatest. So be prepared to crash and burn, but not so prepared that it prevents you from going after what you want. So "Carpe Boyfriend" girl. Show 'em what you're made of.

I think you should plan a date. Maybe a dinner, dance, and walking by the beach!

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 .

    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.
