Dear Dish-It, I Just Can't Get This One Boy Out Of My Mind

Dear Dish-It,

I just can't get this one boy out of my mind! I try to forget about him, but I can't! We are like [KWLINK 15198]BFFs. I mean, I don't know if he'd like a dorky, geeky, animal-fanatic girl like me. But, I've written two songs about him, and a poem! I'm already working on a third song. I really want to tell him, but I'm scared. I've tried flirting … but he couldn't tell [KWLINK 16192]flirting to save his life. And he's a year older than me. He's smart, sweet, nice, and he's not a babbling idiot (like some guys … and they say girls are complicated!). And I keep on picturing his head and I get knots in my tummy. And the whole song thing, with most crushes I only write one song or less. He inspires me, and I try to deny it. But I can't. And we have so much in common. What do I do?

Dear true2myself,


It’s really nice that you’ve found a source of inspiration in this boy. If crushing on him from afar gets your creative juices flowing, then I’d say that’s a good thing – for you. However, I must warn you, true2myself, he may not see it the same way.


You see, guys, like girls, ARE complicated. If you went up to your friend and professed your undying love to him, and showed him all your poems that were inspired by him and serenaded him with the songs that you wrote for him, he will, most likely, feel overwhelmed – if not a bit scared.


I’m not saying you should try to be anything other than yourself or try and hide your true feelings about anyone or anything, but I do think when it comes to matters of the heart one must advance with some degree of caution.


My advice to you is to watch for signs of returned interest from the object of your desire. Before you profess your undying love to him (which could scare him off), it would be best if you had some idea that he felt the same way about you. Otherwise, telling him you like him could end in some heartbreak.


When it comes to matters of the heart, my best advice is to lay low, watch and wait for things to unfold naturally. If you try and push or make something happen, it could backfire in your face and you could end up losing a friend. In the meantime, take comfort in the fact that you are capable of admiring someone so much – it means you have a huge capacity for love, which is going to be a big help in your life! Continue writing your poems and songs – it just may not be the time to share them with the source of their inspiration just yet.


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? Don't be scared to Dish-It here. Send all of your questions to deardish@kidzworld.com But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. 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.

This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

I am so sorry for your loss. It must be tough going through this at the moment, losing someone is always a difficult situation. Grief can be unsettling and uncomfortable, but is a normal and necessary part of grieving and getting yourself through these types of things. I encourage you to continue to remember her, whether it be through stories or drawings or other ways you might express your good memories together. You could also do something in her memory such as plant a tree. Healing from loss takes time. There's no magic fix that'll make you feel better overnight. You just have to let yourself go through the process and eventually you will feel better. I promise. I'm also here if you feel like talking about it at any time, just send me a request.

On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.

Hello! I'm in need of urgent advice. The guy I have a crush on and I were best friends around two years ago. Somebody told him that I like him, and now he avoids me like the plague... I really just want to be friends with him again even if he doesn't like me back. What should I do? I'm quite an awkward girl, and I can't make conversation for the life of me. We're going into seventh grade, and I haven't talked to him nor seen him all summer. Please help!
