Dear Dish-It, How Do I Know If He Likes Me?


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


Dear Dish-It,

I have a crush on this guy at school, but I don't know if he likes me. How can I tell?
C.W.


Dear C.W.,

Listen up girls, cuz these are the basics. STOP. LOOK. LISTEN. Do you catch your boy lookin' at you all the time? I mean like every single time you look up, he's right there givin' you the once over. If your boy is talkin' to ya, listen to what he is saying. Does he say nice things about you? Or even weird things. Cuz your little hottie might be tryin' to make time with you... and sometimes guys come up with sweet but truly lame things to talk about. If you can answer yes to the above, I'd guess this boy is all yours! But one more thing - if you're not totally sure, use STOP. LOOK. LISTEN. to get his attention. Boys are people too... check him out, pay attention to his stuff, and when he talks, hear what he has to say. Everyone likes being treated like who they are, and what they say, is unique and important... even guys!


Dear Dish-It,

I like this guy whose name is Lucas but I don't know if he like's me. I think he like's me because he talks to me like all the time and sits by me. I was just asking you if I should ask him out... so you can tell me.
Just


Dear Just,

By the way you tell it, this boy Lucas likes you. Just like I told C.W., a boy is definitely trying to make time with you when he's caught staring at you, trying to sit with you... paying attention anyway he can. Of course, there are no guarantees (I only know what you guys tell me!!) but I think you're good to go. Ask him out already. Clearly, you think Lucas is lush, and it sounds like he thinks you are too, so stop wasting time. Geez you guys, sometimes you make me wonder what year it is. If you like someone go for it... Carpe Diem. If they don't like you - well that's their loss. So many peeps are scared of sharing their feelings. Don't be scared! Feelings are normal - everyone has them (yes, other people feel happy or sad, confident or insecure at one time or another.) If you say "Hey, do ya wanna hook up?" and they say "No." it doesn't mean anything more than maybe you're not a match. One thing for sure people - you'll never know if you don't go for it! Good Luck Just.


Dear Dish-It,

Hey, well yeah, uum, ok, I have been in this situation recently... and this is what I did. The boy that dropped me, dropped me because my friend wrote him a letter sayin' another boy wanted to go out with me. Yeah, so don't make the mistake of saying you're going to cheat on your boyfriend because it will get around and he will drop you. Well take my advice.

Dear Jes208,

A little slow starting... but solid advice girlfriend!


Dear Ice,

(Click here to read Ice's Dear Dish-It question.) You should tell him to stop playing around cause, the feelings you have for him are real.

    Do They Like You Or Loath You?

    • When they stare at you all the time - it's love.
    • When they tease you - it's love.
    • When they tease you - it's just to bug you.
    • Who cares? It only counts when I like them

Of course not! What kinds of people just go through their everyday lives shoving good kids into hard metal lockers? It's not right. I would never associate myself with a group like that. What kind of popular is that, shoving kids into lockers?

The whole thread is great. And that one is a sign. But remember people with mental illness may also show signs like this to. If they have a good they they may spoil you and love you, and then the next day they're having a bad one. So they might push you away. They also may suddenly dote on you one day also to make up for a bad day. I'm not making an excuse, it's still a ver bad thing to do. I'm just putting it out there. that's a good point.
