Dear Dish-It, The Guy I Like, Likes Me!

Dear Dish-It,

I just found out that the guy I like, likes me! That was good to hear! But guess what? Another girl in my class likes him to. She keeps fighting with me. I stop but she won't. Now she is acting like she's all that, just to get my boyfriend to like her. Please help me!!!

Dear Elisha,

Girl, your boy already knows that you're all that or he wouldn't tell you as much. He has told you, right? Cuz, if you only know this through word of mouth, then you need to confirm it quick! Either way, whether the boy is yours or not, you've only got one way to play this. Be cool! If that girl in your class is tryin' to act like she's all that, your boy will see through it. And if he doesn't, then figure that he ain't all that either.

Dear Dish-It,

There is this guy, Tommy. I've liked him for three years now. We have been friends for a while cuz his sister and my brother used to go out. I just seem to connect with him. But since the beginning the year, the feeling I have is stronger. I mean, I can't talk to him without being nervous. I used to talk to him on the phone all the time. Now whenever I call, and he answers, I hang up. Im scared to tell him. Everyone says he likes me, but I don't believe them. How do I tell him, I like him, without being mushy?

Dear *Lauren*,

Just be yourself girlfriend! After all, if your friends are right and this hottie likes you, he likes you for who you are. No pretense. No posing or pretendin' to be something you're not. If your friends are wrong and he's not crushin' on ya, then you wanna get him to like the real you... Not some fake you. No matter what girl, hang out with him as friends and everything else will happen naturally.

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 .

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)

    YESSSSSS ! ! ! I love make up but I dont wear as much as ppl think I do. doing full make up takes too long but I wear concealer if I have a pimple or something to cover. I usually have my nails done but u dont have to do those every day, just touch em up unless u want to change the color. when I feel like more than that I do my lashes, lips an maybe eyeliner if I have time. having fun is more important than make up.
