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

What To Do About A 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.

    Would You Tell a Crush?

    • I'd just tell 'em they're da bomb.
    • I'd send them a note during class.
    • No way I'd tell a crush anything... that's too harsh.
    • I'd get my friend to tell their friend.

    Dear Sparkly_Chick, If your sister has been feeling like that lately, ask her," What's wrong why have you been acting sooo weird towards me? " have her tell you and try to comfort her and if she doesnt tell you ask an adult bring an adult into the situation.
