Dear Dish-It, Does He Like Me?

Dear Dish-It,

There is this kid named Cory in my class and I think he is a total HOTTIE!!! And my friends told him that I like him but he never listens. I sit near him in every class, and I always find him looking at me and he tries to talk to me but we always get interrupted. I like him but I don't know if he likes me back? Does he like me?!

Dear Jane0217,


I have good news for you: your hottie, Cory, sounds like a typical guy! What I mean by that is, in my experience, you can tell a guy likes you when he pays little to no attention to you at all! Also, the fact that your friends told him about your crush and he didn’t respond in a totally negative way (I mean, he’s still trying to talk to you and, like you say, you’re always catching him staring at you) is really positive.


So, now that we’ve established that there’s a good chance Cory does like you – a lot – what should your next step be? In this case, you have two choices. You can either continue doing what you’re doing – that is, having your friends give him messages for you and stealing glimpses of him in class – and hope that one day he’s brave enough to make the first move and ask you out. Or, you can be a strong, modern woman and do something about Cory yourself!


The decision is really up to you, and it requires you to sit down for a moment and think hard about what it is you really want from and with Cory at this point. If you want to go on a date with him and maybe have that lead to something more serious, and you want that to happen sooner rather than later, then in my opinion you’re going to have to make the first move – and soon! Sounds like Cory is too shy to do the deed himself, so if this is something you want – and HE is something you want – then I suggest you approach him after class one day (don’t bring your friends along – make sure it’s just the two of you) and casually ask him if he’d be interested in hanging out with you sometime or going to see a movie or something.


Or, like I said, you can be just as shy as the object of your desire and wait for him to make the first move. But, from the sounds of it, choosing that option may mean you’ll be waiting longer than you want to, Jane.


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?

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.

    Touche... I feel alone as well... I hate myself... People bully me for the stupidest of reasons, and it never ends! It's the reason I came on here in the first place. To have people that I can consider friends with a straight face (I have a few of those in real life but I'm not exactly a social butterfly. Well, I hate myself even more when I have to lie about not having friends, saying I have heaps of them, when that would be 35... I'm sorry if I offended anyone, but hey, I just assume I offend everyone I talk to... which is why I don't talk much...

    Ask your dad why he won't let you go. If it's cost then offer to pay for it yourself if he won't pay and you don't want your friend to pay. If you don't have enough money right now ask your dad if you can pay him back over time by doing extra chores or something. Also calmly explain that you really like the band and really would like to see them live. Is your friend's mom or dad going with you? That might affect his decision if he's worried about your safety.

    Everytime I ask my dad for something, its no. Yesterday I asked if I could go to the 5sos concert, he said no, and I asked why. He said there was no one to take me. My friend offered to take me, since she is going. I asked for money for the ticket, and he asked how much it was. I said it was $24, and he said that is too much and that he just bought me a phone yesterday. (my phone was an update, IT WAS 99 CENTS!) My friend then offered to pay for my ticket, and I told her I couldnt let her do it, she has bought me too many things already. WHat d0 i do? How do I convince my parents? It will be my first concert.

You're pretty, you're beautiful in your own way. Um, I guess you should talk with teachers/adults about it and I know it'll be tough for you, but ignore what they say and just be you!
