Dear Dish-It: Mom Won't Let Me Talk To Him

Dear Dish-It,

My mom told me I can't talk to my crush anymore! I just told her about some bad choices he made, and now I'm not allowed to talk to him! He did hurt me but I still like him. She told me to like another guy, but I just like Enrique so much! It may be love – what should I do?

Dear true2myself,


First thing’s first. It is NOT love if this guy hurt you. In fact, you should focus on that instead of any good times or good feelings you had with or about Enrique. A guy that hurt you once will hurt you again and again and again if you give him the chance. So why not be a strong girl and move on from this crush, just like your mom suggested?


As for talking to your crush without your mom’s permission, well, I think that’s a decision you should have made yourself. As soon as someone hurts you in a relationship, it’s usually time to call it quits with him or her. Why would you want to give someone who hurt you (and who is most likely going to hurt you again) the time of day?


You need to gain some more self-esteem, self-respect and self-confidence, and figure out what your mom already knows about you – that you deserve a lot more and a lot better than someone who has no problem hurting your feelings. That way you’ll be able to make the right decisions about future crushes and relationships yourself – or at least be able to recognize good advice when your mom offers it to you.


If you've got a burning question, need some love advice or find yourself thinking about things like sex, depression, self-esteem, boyfriends, girlfriends, best friends, bullying or peer pressure, don't hesitate to Dish-It here. Send your questions to deardish@kidzworld.com. And if you hang out in the chat rooms with other Kidzworld members who know you by your username, just send in your secret question using a different nickname if you want to stay anonymous – we promise that no one will ever know it's you. Remember: Dish-It gets a load of letters every day so it may take a while to reply to yours. Keep checking back for her reply, or watch for answered Dish-It questions that are similar to your own.

What Happens if Your Crush Isn't Crushing?

  • I'd lock myself in my room and cry.
  • Oh well, it's their loss.
  • I'd pretend I didn't like them to begin with.
  • What's new? My crushes never like me back.

Having the incapability of being able to maintain a friendship can usually be a personal-self issue. Normally held within how a person carries themselves around others or how they behave. But, at the same time, a friendship runs both ways. If the person on the other end of the friendship is not putting in effort to continue the friendship or being there in times of needs, there could be a possibility that they are the problem. Not you. Your problem could possibly not even lay within you, you could also be in a place where you're not able to get along with or have enough in common with those around you to be able to either have or even continue a relationship for a decent to long period of time. Your best option may be a new change of surroundings. Both environmental and your choice of people.
