Dear Dish-It: I Like A Karate Kid

Dear Dish-It,


I have a huge crush on a boy in karate. What should I do?


makena1999


Dear M1999,


You didn’t really say in your question whether or not you are in karate with the boy you like, but it sounds like you are. In which case, you’re off to a good start! Sharing the same interests and liking the same activities and hobbies is often the foundation of what makes a good relationship.


If you’ve read some of my answers to other kids’ questions, you’ll know that I’m not a fan of telling a guy that you like him. If that’s what you feel like you have to do, then go ahead and do it. Just make sure he hears it straight from you – the worst thing you can do is send your friends to tell him you like him or, worse, send your friends to tell his friends to tell him you like him. Those kinds of things never work!


What I really think you should do is keep on being friends with your crush. Show him what a fun, smart, cool girl you are and he will probably realize he likes you, too!


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.

    A perfect friend is one who respects your feelings and doesn't make fun of them but helps you feel better, who can drive you only slightly insane, and who will try to save you from embarrassing situations by making you see the funny side. :) :D

    A perfect friend is one who is always there for you not minding how many times you chase them away. They are people who you can rely on solely because they have proved to be those you can trust.  They are also those you can call partners in crime. They are not judgemental . They are those who can die for you if the need arise.

He's respectful, loyal, and his hugs are the best ever(he's like a foot and 4 inches taller than me). the dilemma is, he'stwentyandI'mfifteenturningsixteensoon.... I'm not gonna even ask about dating him until i'm sixteen but I've called him in total anxiety attack crying my eyes out and he calmed me down and made me laugh, and I invited him to come see a choir performance so he spent the day with me... My mom ships us... but I'm a little worried because of the age difference  and experience difference and just, I don't want to miss the chance of being with him because of it. ​  any advice??? It's really nice that your mother supports it, that always helps!! I'm glad that your family enjoys his company as well. Being 16 while he's 20 is alright. It's a slight odd age gap. But, I think as long as you both are ready, it's alright. Make sure you're mature and safe with your choices though. Personally, I think you should wait until you're closer to at least, 17. But, as long as you two are smart about what you're doing, it should be alright when it come around to it.

He doesn't deserve you. But it's totally okay if you want to play it safe and not go up to him. You do you. :3
