Dear Dish-It, I Have Crushes on Other Boys
Dear Dish-It, is thinkin' about this some more, so TTYL.
I have a boyfriend and he likes me and I like him, but I have a CRUSH on a boy in my class and he is my best friend. He asked me to try to hook him up with some other girls that are my friends. I mean, should I still have crushes on other boys I like and still have a boyfriend? Please help me. I don't really get to see my boyfriend that much... only for about five minutes after school. I can't go outside during the winter because it is too cold and I have asthma. So I can't see him. It's like I don't even have a boyfriend.
Nothing is hopeless! Girl, you've dealt a few issues at once. First, there's nothin' wrong with checkin' out the hotties... if we're talkin' about appreciating them as being oh-so-fine. But, if you're developing feelings for them, that's just not cool. More to it, it could be a sign that things aren't so fine between you and your boy. On the other... there may be nothing wrong with your relationship, you may just be (and I'm vibin' this is true,) a bit jealous and or territorial. Does this friend usually pay you loads of attention? Maybe you don't want to lose that or his friendship... maybe you're thinkin' he won't be there for you if he's busy with another girl. My advice girl, is ask yourself what is really happening in your head - do you think he's hot or are you worried you will lose his attention. If the second is true, then hook him up already. He deserves happiness too... and a friend would help him find it, not keep him hidden from the rest of your girls. As for the sketchy time with your own boy... why not invite him over. Sure, it's cold outside but can't you hang out at home? - his or yours.
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 .
