Dear Dish-It: How Do I Get Him Back?

Dear Dish-It,


How do you get a boy that dumped you once to like you again?


sagerayne


Dear sagerayne,


Well, I don’t think you need to get a boy who dumped you to like you again. I think you should move on and be happy that you are free to meet someone that’s better for you, who’ll stay with you and treat you right.


Some people think that it’s OK to want to get back together with an ex. I don’t think it’s a bad thing, either, as long as it happens naturally. What I mean is, you don’t need to do anything to make it happen. If you and your ex-boyfriend are meant to be together again, then you will be together again someday – there’s nothing you can or need to do to make that happen.


If you REALLY want advice on how to make your ex like you again, I’m sure there’s lots of it out there on the Internet. Unfortunately, since I don’t agree that you should have to do anything special to get anyone to notice you – especially not someone who has already dumped you once in the past – I can’t give you any tips in this column.


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.

    Have You Ever Been Dumped?

    • Yeah, just last week!
    • Yes, a couple of times.
    • Just once, but I got over it pretty fast.
    • Never! I always let them go before they get the chance.

    I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

    Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.
