Dear Dish-It: Do I Like Him?

Dear Dish-It,

There's this guy at my school, and I got to know him when we were both in drama club. He's now one of my best friends. I think I like him, but I don't know whether or not I do. Sometimes when I think of him, I get all tingly inside, but I can't really picture myself dating him. He's a fifth grader and I'm a seventh grader, and his uncle is my social studies teacher, and a lot of my friends have known him since they were little, and they think he's weird, and I don't know what to think. Help!!!

Confuzzled


Dear Confuzzled,


Right off the bat, I have to say you’re one lucky girl to have found a great friend in this guy. Since you were both in the drama club, I’m guessing you have some similar interests – that’s a good start, whether your relationship remains at the friendship level or evolves into something more.


Having said that, I don’t really think you have too big a problem here. You sound like a really smart girl (just a little confused), so you probably already know (without me having to tell you) that it really doesn’t matter what your friends or anyone else thinks of this guy. All that matters is what YOU think – and what your heart is telling you about your feelings for him.


Neither does the age difference really matter – unless that’s going to be a problem for you. I mean, you’re already really tight friends despite being a couple years apart in age; I don’t really think it’s an issue if the two of you do start being more involved with each other.


Basically, Confuzzled, I think you just need to put all the opinions of the people around you aside and search your own soul for the answer to this question. I’m pretty sure if you follow what your heart is telling you, you don’t have to be worried about being led astray!


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.

    Autonomy
    Quoting Rick Sanchez, "Listen Morty, I hate to break it to you, but what people call 'love' is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, Morty, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage. I did it. Your parents are gonna do it. Break the cycle, Morty. Rise above. Focus on science." Applies to pretty much everyone. Change "focus on science" to whatever else truly fulfills you in life. Not trying to be a pessimist here, just a realist. When you give up on looking for a relationship, you free yourself from so many worries/problems, it's incredible. Seriously. Take the advice from a guy who's not going to be divorced, paying child support in thirty years. The same guy who doesn't worry about what his partner (or potential partner) thinks of him, which appears to be a big problem for you right now. You're an interesting person who has desires and dreams, and the opportunity to make them a reality. Focus on your real interests, forget the boy drama. Just my advice.

    Go for him, make a nice situation to understand what he feels about you, if he loves you and you are sure about him so go for him and dont lose him . Though I think such a friendship for you is too soon and it will be broken but it is worth trying .Soory, if I speak frankly , it is just my opinion nothing more.
