Dear Dish-It: He Won't Leave Me Alone!

Dear Dish-It,

There's this boy in my class I used to have a crush on. Then, I found out he's a jerk! I moved on to a boy that treats me well. When the jerk heard me talking with my BFF about the new boy he looked over my shoulder and tried to find out what I was writing in my diary! He’s now trying to impress me even though I keep giving him the vibes to GO AWAY – but he doesn't get it! I think I deserve a sweet, caring, smart boy. What should I do?


Dear true2myself,

Sounds like a classic case of wanting what you can no longer have. When your former crush found out you didn’t like him anymore, he decided to start paying more attention to you … unfortunately, it sounds like it’s too late for him and you have already moved on.

I think you’re lucky to have found out that this guy is no good for you – his weird behavior now only proves that further! You definitely don’t want to be with a guy who only seems to notice you or want you when you are no longer available to him, or a guy who tries to pry into your private business by eavesdropping on your conversations with friends and sneaking peeks at your personal diary!

You said it yourself: you, as all girls, deserve someone you is nice, sweet, caring, honest and there when you need him. I say keep on staying away from your former flame and concentrate on bigger and better things. If you keep giving him the vibe to stay away from you and, better yet, tell him directly that you’re no longer interested and could he please leave you alone, your old crush will eventually get the hint and let you move on in peace!

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 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.
