Dear Dish-It, Help! It's Valentine's Day

Dear Dish-It,

Okay, Valentine's Day is coming up... oh yeah, I'm just 12... Anyway, what do you get a boy for Valentine's... a boy that you really like?????
Markey


Dear Markey,

That all depends... does he like you too? I mean is this your boy or someone you're crushin' on. Cuz if he's your boy, get him something special, something that shows you listen to him and ya hear what it is he's into. You don't have to spend a ton of money... just think of him and you'll be all inspired. If your boy's into comics (they're not just for kids!) like X-men or Batman Beyond, go to the comic shop and drop some dosh ($$$) on a special edition or collectible. If your boy is into warpin', mixin' and scratchin', hook him up with a cool industry rag (not just one, get him a subscription for the year.) Maybe your dude is all 'bout the board... pick him up a boardin' gift. The point is, anyone can buy flowers but your real feelin's will show when you buy a gift that's all 'bout them.


But, if this boy is someone you're crushin' on, I think it's too early for gifts. But, it does pose the perfect op to ask him out. Your money's better spent on a flick than any present.


Dear Dish-It,

Hello, my mate has asked me to ask you this! There is this lad she likes and she won't shut up about him! I asked him what is his top 5 and he said that my mate is number 2 and she is dead chuffed. But he said, he won't go out with her cuz she thinks that he doesn't like her... he won't tell me if he does or not! What do I tell him... to go out with her, cuz you can tell he likes her and he is always lookin' at her. I think that it is really funny! She has told me to ask you what should she do to get him to go out with her? Cuz Valentine's Day is comin' up and she is sendin' him a rose and a card!! She is madly in love with him. What should she do?

Dear Dish-It,

There is this lad I like in school. He is dead nice, but he likes my friend. I sent him a rose for Valentine's day and he is sending me 1. Do you think he likes me cuz I don't wanna ask him out in case he says NO! I really like him. Should I ask him out or not?
Love From Curly


Dear Curly_Colly,

Okay girl, first I gotta translate... Your girlfriend said, check it out with Dish-It, what should I do? The guy tells you he likes her but he won't ask her out. And she likes him, right? What does chuffed mean? (I use to live in London, but I swear I don't know that one.) Anyway, it sounds like they both think the other is pretty lush. If I've got this right, then tell your mate, to ask him out before she gives him a card or flowers. Then she can send the goodies after they go out. Tell your "mate" good luck!


As for your second question. It sounds like this boy is interested or he wouldn't be sending you a rose. I say go for it girl... and if he does say no, it's not the end of the world... and it certainly doesn't mean there is anything wrong with you. The timing might be bad. Who knows. Like I keep telling you guys, life is short, so don't waste time with "what ifs." Don't let your fears rule you or stop you from trying something new. Cuz if you don't ask, I can promise you, you won't get what you want. How 'bout these for "what ifs?" What if he says YES! What if you succeed? What if you get what you want?


Dear Dish-It,

Hi! My boyfriend won't talk to me. My friends asked him if he was going to get me anything for Valentine's day and he said that he does not have time for me. HELP ME DISH!!!!!!!!!!!
Kat


Dear Kat,

Any hotties on the radar? Cuz bad news girl, I think you're dating yourself. You say he won't talk to you and he's told your friends he doesn't have time for you. Take the hint girl, he's not your boyfriend. Somewhere along the way, he dumped you. It sounds like he's a total coward and didn't bother to let you know (which makes him a total butt-head too.) It's Valentine's... brush yourself off and find some new talent... talent that will treat you proper. You don't need to be botherin' with Mr. No-Show. Besides, when he sees you're busy elsewhere, he might come runnin' back. Not that you should want him back. You deserve better girl, so go have some fun.


Dear Dish-It,

I've been with this boy for 6 months now and Valentine's Day is coming. The thing about it is, I was taught to buy only a card for the boy I go out with but I want to get him something other than a card. What should I do?
alltalk


Dear alltalk,

So what's the problem? Go for it. Buy him something special but don't go all crazy with the money. Just remember, if you buy him something that's all about him and the things he grooves on... he'll love it, and you. Happy V-Day girl!


Dear Dish-It,

I got to get a good present for my g/f and I don't know what to give her. Please give me some good ideas of what to get her. What would you want?
Cody

What's Your Idea of Romance?

  • Flowers are my fave.
  • You can't eat flowers. It's chocolate all the way.
  • Nuttin' works like poetry or a song written just for me.
  • A quiet, romantic evening with my sweetie.

The reason is because I have a guy who really likes me, and we liked each other back in the 5th grade, and he's even got me presents and everything, but now I'm starting to doubt whether I still like him or not. And he is a great guy; he's silly, funny, kind- but I just don't know if he's the right guy for me. Plus there's a friend of mine who I know likes me as more than a friend, and he's a great guy, too. I really need advise!! Oh sweetheart, your situation is so, so very far from being complicated. In fact, it's actually, entirely simple. But I'm here to help you see that, because you can't see it yourself quite yet. Brace yourself, you may never hear such advice in your life ever again. Or you might, I can't predict the future. You're in sixth grade, you said. Assuming you live in the United states and weren't held back, you're probably 12, maybe 11. The problem is, the human brain isn't fully developed until a person hits the age of about 25. This means, without debate, that your brain unable to fully grasp what being in a relationship actually entails, what it means, what the consequences are, and so forth. You can't even fathom it, my dear. I couldn't at your age; no one can. You've just begun to hit puberty at this point in your very young, completely normal life. Certain hormones are now being developed by your body that, up until puberty began, your body did not produce. Let me explain, in simple terms, what this means: these new hormones are giving you fuzzy feelings for boys, but these feelings are not what people with fully developed brains call "love." Love means being self sacrificing, compromising, giving and taking, communicating clearly and honestly, and so much more. What you're feeling is a part of love-romance-but it's not all there is to love. It's actually just a few simple chemicals being released in your brain: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and few others. Your brain releases those chemicals when, say, you see a boy you like, and those chemicals make you feel all fuzzy inside. In fact, (brace yourself,) there's nothing inherently special about the boys you like, or the boys that like you; in fact, they're also, entirely normal, and aside from a few minor differences in character, completely like most other boys their age. Had you been born in another town, gone to another school, you would have gotten the same fuzzy feeling about whatever boy you thought you liked at that school. You see? I'm not saying this to make you feel insignificant, but perhaps the insight will make moving easier for you. The next place your militant parents settle down in will also have a middle school, with a bunch of normal 11-14 year old boys and girls, all doing the exact same things the kids at your school do right now. Does that put things in perspective for you? The world is a very, very big place, and it's home to billions upon billions of people. Your situation is far from being a needle in a hay stack; it's more like a blade of grass, in a vast field of foliage. The feelings you're feeling aren't uncommon or complicated, they just feel that way to you. (Now, really brace yourself, because this is going to get uncomfortable.) We, as people, tend to think that we're special. Each one of us a unique snowflake, drifting about in big blue sky, that exists solely to show the world how special we are. The problem is, the other seven billions snowflakes (people) think exactly like we do, and in this way, we are all the same. We think our problems are new problems that no one has ever dealt with before, and no one else could possibly understand the pain and suffering we're going through. We all think this way, by nature; but it's simply naive. Heartache and suffering have existed since people existed, and possibly before then. Your situation may not be ideal to you, but once you come to terms with the fact that life isn't ideal for anyone, you might actually feel comfort. The easiest way to cope with our many problems, is to accept them for what they are: a part of the human experience. Natural, normal, repeating generation after generation without end. Again, these are concepts that require some deep thought, and you might not fully grasp them quite yet. But remember them. With time, as you grow, think about them more, and you will find peace with your life. And remember this: although you're stuck (for now) on a giant rock hurling around the sun at an incredible speed, you're not alone. With billions of other people stuck here with you, you'll never be without friends.

I personally think that when you ARE ready then go for it! As long as the person you like isn't a jerk to anyone or you go for it! Just don't get too serious. It's middle school. Good luck!
