Dear Dish-It, Valentine's Day Dilemmas
Hi, I have a boyfriend named Zack but I am too young to go on a date. What do I do for Valentine's Day? Any advice? Let me know!
Dear Ms. Understood,
First off, good for you girl! Knowing that you're not ready to date, and accepting that, makes you cool. Now, as for what to do... you two could have a "lunch date" where you share some food in the cafeteria with your mates. I'm all for a cute, homemade valentine slipped in his locker. If it's homemade, you can glue some mag pics on that are his style, like snowboardin' or skate pics, whatever he's into. A cute poem - yours or Shakespeare's - is also a winning idea.
Valentine's Day is coming up and I fancy someone but I can't get his attention. I am 11 and the boy is 11. How do I get his attention?
Well, you picked the perfect day to give your crush a little hint, that's for sure! V-Day is a perfect crush-revealing day cuz everyone is in the lovin' mood. So, get out the art supplies or head to a card store and get your guy a valentine! In the card, tell him you think he's all that and that you've been crushin' on him for a while. It's simple, it's to the point and better yet, it's Valentine's Day so it's not too over-the-top. If he isn't feeling the same vibes for ya, no biggie - just remember that there are other fish in the sea! You might want to include a little chocolate treat or some of those little cinnamon hearts.
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. 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.
