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

    Dear Dish-It:  I recently became friends with an upperclassman guy, Tom*, from my high school. We started hanging out about a month or so ago. To be honest, I thought the relationship was platonic: we've never flirted although we've bantered, I don't use flirty emojis with him and although I spend a lot of time with him, he has always said how much I remind him of my brother (who is the same age as me), and he's never stolen glances at me or given me the impression that he was into me that way. I rationalized that he saw me as a little sister the same way as I viewed him as an older brother, since he constantly made references to my brother and never attempted to flirt nor gave off any of the typical visual signals of attraction. I also don't see myself as someone who'd be attractive or crush-worthy from the perspective of a high school junior, since I'm a freshman in high school and definitely not modelesque, and we pretty much stuck to group outings. So when he asked me out 2 weeks ago, needless to say it came as a surprise. We decided to remain friends, but I'm having trouble establishing boundaries, especially since my sister informed me that one of his friends told her that Tom "wasn't going to give up on me" and that Tom was going to adhere to the "Three Strikes Rule": apparently, he can wait and ask me out 2 more times before giving up on pursuing me.  Dish-It, how do I remain friends with this guy without this becoming awkward? What do I do? Just this past weekend he wanted to s**pe call me and kept s.n.a.p.ch*tting me. I literally feigned accidentally sleeping in yesterday to avoid meeting up with him (he invited my siblings and I to go play tennis at our high school), and I haven't talked to him since Saturday (we do track together so it was kind of unavoidable). I need space, and I want to remain friends, but he's really making me feel uncomfortable.  Thanks, -Perks. P.S.: This is the second junior who has asked me out this year (and the second guy I've rejected). Maybe I'm just really naive and oblivious, but I genuinely don't see myself as attractive to guys...how do I stop accidentally leading them on? Because I'm not trying to, really-I'm not flirty or anything. I have no idea why they like me, I don't think I'm being overly nice and I'm not answering texts right away or anything. This guy didn't get my phone information from me, he got it from another person on our coed sports team and he originally texted me 2 months ago to tell me that he was worried about my brother so I didn't think he was making a move on me. *Names have been changed for privacy reasons. (Also: the chat filter keeps unnecessarily censoring my writing).

I got the  books and all i need would be extra graph paper and character sheets....  Anyways my dad gave me this idea on Friday and I was thinking of it today. Maybe find a few nerds like me... who knows. My dad told me people would make fun of me, but i don't care.... You will face a little making fun of, but as long as you can get past that and ignore others, I think you'll be just fine. If you're already aware of any others like you throughout the school, maybe you should look into making a group! Slip them a note or talk to them yourself, see if they're interested. Good luck!
