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?

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.

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.

    My friend problem: Get ready 'cause this'll be long. Problem = ... Okay, so I know this girl, Amelia. Last year when I was new at school she invited me to sit with her and her friends on the second day. Since then, we've been 'best friends'. Throughout the whole of last year she was really great. Now, it's been a few weeks since the first day of school - 5th grade. On the first day she was really happy to see me and we did all that normal BFF stuff. We even traced one of each of our hands and wrote 'BFFs' at the top. It all started with this.                                                   HOW IT HAPPENED One day we were sitting in the cafeteria. Her: Hey, what should we do during recess today? Another Friend Who Doesn't Like Amelia: Hey, do you want to do ______________? Me: Ummmmmmmmmmmm ......... errrrrrrrr .............. Me: (Thinking of Plan) Me: Eureka! Me: Hey, Amelia, I have this idea. Since you don't like Belen .... (this is other friend's name)  and you don't like her, I was thinking: Maybe on Monday I could hang out with you and Tuesday with her ... etc. Her: Cool. Well ... okay. Note: Well, I was feeling pretty bad, because she'd been a really great friend, but then I thought: Hey, it's only one day! It's not like I told her "Hey, I'm going to ditch you!" So then I went off with Belen. Well, the next day, or maybe a few days later - I don't remember - she told me during recess again: Her: Hey, do you want to go hang out with them over there? Points Me: Sure ... why not? Then we went on over there. During the whole of that recess, she didn't pay much attention to me. That was when I got suspicious. Now, it's been, like, 4 weeks since the first day of school. I decided to hang out with Belen during recess on Friday. Tomorrow is Monday, btw. Belen: Are you going to hang out with me during recess today? Me: Yeah. I would've wanted to go off with Amelia, but she was blowing me off lately. Last year a lot of people weren't her friends and she wasn't that social. Now, I see her flirting with _ _ _ _ _ _ easily and everyone (even people who left her out of their groups last year) is crowding around her while she talks about her big party. Last time, she even asked me if I wanted to go away with Belen, because she wasn't there either. Maybe I'm overreacting and she's just getting to be friends with a lot more people. I dunno. Should I be happy for her? Like I said, Belen and Amelia kinda hate each other, which is pretty inconvenient because they're both my best friends. So, you know that 'big party' Amelia is hosting? Belen's not invited and I don't know about myself, either. During yet ANOTHER recess Belen was talking about planning her birthday party. Now it's October 4th and her birthday is actually on January 21. Weird. I think she means this as a revenge party, because she is NOT inviting Amelia. Am I overreacting and taking this too seriously? Maybe I'm not and Amelia really isn't a good friend. But if I go to Belen's party and have an awesome time, Amelia (if I was overreacting) would be really upset. Then she would ditch me - FOR REAL. If I AM invited to Amelia's party, then what if she started blowing me off there? I don't want to look like a pesky little 'friend', clinging onto her. I NEED HELP. P.S. I have another problem caused by the first problem. I am crushing really hard on My Crush. I'm sure boys like fun, bouncy, happy, perky girls. He usually sees me during recess, where Amelia is usually blowing me off. Then, I start acting really sluggish and moody. Basically downright not-in-the-fun-mood. What would he think? Thank you for your help. P.P.S. PLEASE DO help me. This is an emergency. Thank you very much for your help (if you do help, that is.)

    Perfect Friend: Someone who will support you when you fail. Someone who encourages you. Someone who sticks with you. Someone who comforts you when things go wrong. Someone who is funny and makes you laugh. Someone who tells you the answers in class ... Someone who would wait for you after detention. Someone who would buy you great presents for your birthday. Someone who you know you can always count on. Someone nice (obvious). Someone who never fights with you. Someone who would always be a good friend, even if you weren't. Someone who is loyal. Someone who'd never go off with some other person. Someone who would read all this stuff without telling me they were bored.
