Dear Dish-It: What Should I Do About My Crush?

Dear Dish-It,

I have a HUGE crush on my guy BFF. The problem is, school’s almost over and, since he’s a year older than me, he’ll be in a different school next year. I think he likes me because he’s always staring at me and tries to make me jealous, but I'm not sure he picks up on my hints that I like him back. What should I do?

Dear true2myself,


It definitely sounds like you like on this guy. So, if you’re willing to take a risk, it may be time to ask him out. Here’s how:

  • Either get him alone or call him on the phone.
  • Talk about stuff.
  • Relax. Take a deep breath.
  • Smile (even if you're on the phone). Remember that he will be flattered by your question.
  • Pop the question: “[His name], will you go out with me?”
  • Relax, pay attention.
  • Listen to his reply.
  • Don't interrupt!
  • If the answer was “Yes,” congratulations! Within the next 24 hours, let him know how much you appreciate him.
  • If the answer was “No,” that stinks, but you have to respect his decision and talk with him about where you go from here, since you are best friends.

  • Tips:

  • Do something to make him feel special (send a card, give a flower, compliment him, write a note).
  • Be confident. Believe in yourself!
  • Do not put your value as a person in his answer. If he says no, you're OK with yourself.
  • Know that there is somebody out there for you, even if the person you want right now isn't interested.

  • 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.

    • No way I'd tell a crush anything... that's too harsh.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends

You can't let them get away with that kind of stuff. ​My bus driver does NOTHING about it EVEN IF HE SEE'S IT! he only wrote the two girls up but not the girl that hit me
