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 .

    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!

    You go out and you find someone who you can be you with. It's not a hard question to find the answer too.
