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

    Goodness... I see where your mother is coming from: if you eat too much, no matter how healthy the food is, and don't work off the calories, you're going to gain weight. But she's being very obsessive and dramatic about it. There is nothing wrong with eating pizza or a cookie every now and then, and there's nothing wrong with relaxing from time to time either. As long as you aren't constantly eating junk and not burning the calories, then you do not have a problem. Eating unhealthy things every now and then does not make you fat. EATING every now and then does not make you fat. Try explaining this to her, calmly and patiently. Tell her that you don't want to be forced to do all of this exercising - being forced to exercise makes it a lot less interesting. Do not take "This is for your own good" for an answer; if you do not want to do it, it is NOT for your good. (This, of course, would be a different story if you were actually fat.) ALSO tell her that exercising too much and not satiating your cravings is JUST AS UNHEALTHY AS BEING FAT IS. If you were to not eat healthful meals and not snack every now and then, no matter how healthy or unhealthy the food is, plus exercise so frequently, you would not be healthy.  Eating is good for you, even if the food isn't. Eating too little and eating too much is not healthy. Exercise is good for you. Not exercising enough and exercising too much is not good for you. If you talking to her doesn't help, try telling another adult how you feel, and maybe they can help get it through to her. Regardless of what happens, take care of yourself. Moderate how much you eat, but don't limit yourself to less than you feel you need. Exercise, but don't do something you don't want to; working out should be fun. Good luck with everything. I'm really sorry that she makes you feel so badly about this.

    I'm perfectly happy with myself. I'm around 5'6" and somewhere between 140-150 pounds, and I don't feel fat. But my mom is constantly telling me that I am, or, at least, that I'm going to be. She forces me to go to exercise classes because I don't like many sports, tries making me go on diets, but I don't want to. She tells me that if I continue the way I am, having an extra cookie once in a while and only eating cereal for breakfast, that I'll end up fat, and she makes sure to emphasize how horrible that is for a person to live with. She rolls her eyes and sighs whenever she sees me getting a snack, and just in general makes me feel awful for eating the things I like and for relaxing. I've told her that I don't want to do these things and that she makes me feel bad when she says things like that, but she swears it's for my own good and that I should never want to be fat, that it ruins people's lives. How should I deal with this?

I know I need to tell her as I don t like keeping secrets from her. I know this was a bit ago, but I truly hope that you were able to be open with your mother. If you feel as if they won't get mad at you, then chances are that your guardian will not. Honesty is the best policy, and if you feel guilt keeping a secret, then it is one you probably shouldn't be keeping.

    I agree with @rainbowpoptart. You really shouldn't worry about relationships that much given your age. I promise, they're better things to worry about than boys and more secure romances occur later on in life anyways. But, given the situation, you shouldn't worry about either. The boy is unfaithful and so is your friend. If your best friend really valued your friendship, she would not have put it in a position that could end it. Don't waste your time on those who will not put you first just as you do for them; better people will come into your life and they are the ones who you should really worry about.
