Dear Dish-It: He Still Hasn't Called

Dear Dish-It,

I had a friend who liked me. I didn't know until l he gave me a beautiful green crystal. I started liking him. We got together. I had to dump him because I wasn't ready for a relationship and neither was he. But I realized I really love him so I called him but he was busy so we couldn't talk long. I want to get in touch with him but I am nervous to call again. What do I do? He has my number but he hasn't called.


Dear nini98,

If I were you, I’d just try to be patient and wait. You’ve already reached out to him once – which was the right thing to do – but now it is up to him to call you back. Trust me, if he wants to speak to you – about anything – he will contact you.

If you do decide to try calling or contacting him again, you are actually risking a lot more than it may seem. While I know letting him know that your feelings about him have changed and that you still feel really strongly about him and want to talk about possibly trying your relationship again, the last thing you want to do is seem too eager. Trust me, guys don’t respond well to neediness and too many overwhelming emotions. It’s not that us girls aren’t allowed to be emotional or whatever else we happen to be, but there is a proper way to conduct yourself around other people. Exposing your weaknesses is not a good idea.

So try to be patient, and one of two things will happen. He’ll either contact you and at that point the two of you can discuss where your relationship is headed, or he won’t and you’ll meet someone new. Either way, you win!

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
