Dear Dish-It: Quickies (3)
Dish-it gets so many questions, she doesn’t always have time to answer them all right away! Here are some quickie answers for some of the shorter questions she’s received.
I love this boy but he doesn’t know. What do I do? – ashley2002
A boy I like is in one class with me at school. We had to do a project together with two other girls. I was scared to talk to him but I did and it felt good. Now I think he likes me. What should I do? – orarkys
I get these sorts of question all the time – they’re part of the Top 10 Most Popular Questions To Dish-It! That’s why I wrote a guide about what to do when you want to tell someone you like them or want to ask someone out on a date. Check it out!
I went out with a guy and now we are over and he hates me. How can I make him like me again? – friizzz
What if you like a boy and he doesn’t like you? – ppss666
I’m afraid you both have to let your crushes go for now. I know it’s hard not to think about someone you have feelings for – whether you used to date them or not – but when a relationship ends or one person doesn’t like the other person back, there’s only one thing you can do – move on. It doesn’t mean you’ll never have a chance to be friends with your ex/crush or maybe even date him (again), but you have to give it time – most likely a lot of time – and there’s really not much you can say or do to make him change his feelings about you instantly.
I really like this one boy and I think he likes me, too. But some people think I’m too young to think about boys. Right now I’m at a point where I’m not really sure about anything. Should I keep on crushing or just give up for now? – confused
When is the right age to start dating? – abigail1211
Since neither of you said your age, it’s kind of hard for me to answer this question. A lot of people (adults) feel some ages (like 11 or 12) are too young to start dating. Why? Because when you are that young you are still developing – emotionally, mentally, physically and socially – and having to deal with a boyfriend or girlfriend may mean you’re in over your head. Also, you might even be too young to go to certain places where you might be taken out on a date alone. Would you really want your mom or dad to come with you to the movies or to get a bite to eat? The main thing is, if you’re questioning yourself then yes, you’re probably a little young and you should give yourself some time so that when you are ready to date, you’re old enough to handle the responsibility of a relationship on your own.
What do you do if you like two guys? – mon3y queen
Nothing! This doesn’t really seem like a problem to me if you’re not dating both of them at the same time and being dishonest with either one of them. You didn’t give much information in your question so the best advice I can give you is that it’s totally fine to be crushing on two guys at once, as long as you’re not lying to either of them or cheating on either of them with the other one. You’ll eventually sort your feelings out – I promise!
My ex-girlfriend keeps calling and texting me. How do I make her stop? – footballking8535
You could talk to her and ask her to stop, but this is usually a really hard conversation to have – and someone usually ends up getting their feelings hurt badly. My best advice is to ignore her. I know it’s annoying when your phone is ringing off the hook and it’s someone you don’t really want to talk to, but the longer you don’t pick up when she calls and don’t reply to her e-mails, the more she’ll get the hint. Eventually, she should leave you alone completely.
