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.

    You should ask the guy who he is then go round asking people you know if they know him. Then if they say yes you can be almost 100% sure it was them that told him your name. Hopefully this will give you an idea on who the guy is and help you keep on top of the situation.  :)

    I was in the hallway and some guy came up to me and said, "Hi, (my name here)." I was so stunned, I thought he was a stalker because I had no idea who he was! What do you think of this scenario?
