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.

    I've always felt the same way. My one best friend gossiped behind my back, used me, all that girl stuff. She took me for advantage and we had a bunch of fights because of her finding a new friend and completely acting as if I didn't exist, and I told her to give me at least some attention every once in a while if she can't even continue to talk to me daily. And.. I lost her. Well, she lost me. We both lost each other. But then I realized.. it's the people that you least expect to be nice to you you'll find kindness in. Why? Based on personal experience, and I'll tell you the story: For my gym class, me and my peers were supposed to make a group for a dance. This was when my best friend had found a new friend already, and the time at which we had a few fights because of that. Of course, I relied on my best friend to count me in her dance group. At lunchtime, I sat together with my best friend, and we ate our lunches in silence. All of a sudden, I brought up the dance groups and asked her straightforwardly: "Can I join your group?" No reply. "Kelly, can I join your group?" No reply. "I mean, since our class is uneven, I found it fair that there'd be a group of five, you know?" None at all. Kelly ignored me straight off the bat, leaving me speechless. My mind raced with thoughts, and I thought, maybe it's not worth having Kelly as a friend. A few days later, we were playing Dodgeball for gym. I was on Kelly's team, and overheard her talking with her new friends about who to pick for the dance group. One of her friends mentioned me, and Kelly said: "Oh no, we shouldn't pick her because _____ (I don't know what she said then)." I was shocked, but was anticipating it, so when the time came to choose groups, I saw my friend, Luke, ask two girls, Cher and Bridgette, to join their group. Surprisingly, Cher and Bridgette actually accepted him, and so I thought, "Wow, if they accepted Luke, they might accept me aswell!" and so built up the courage to ask them if I could join. Even though Cher and Bridgette were mean to me sometimes, I knew that I had to risk it and see what'd happen. Afterall, rejection is just another opportunity to find a better group. Little did I know, it'd be the best choice of my life. They were so happy, and even thanked me for joining them! I was speechless once more; I never knew that the peers that I thought I would never be friends with would actually be my friends!  So yeah, that's what I learnt, and I never regretted learning that fact. Ever since then, though, I've learnt not to trust people as much as I used to anymore. I learnt that independency is what works for me, what I was meant for in terms of socializing or working. But, other things may work for you. If you still want a friend, you can be independent and wait for the right person. However, if you still want a real friend, you can wait, but still mingle (hang out) with other people! I I'm not going to make fun of you because I know how you've felt, just as I stated in my past problem before. But you can move on from those friends, they're not worth your time and certainly don't deserve you as a friend. Trust me, if it's meant to be, you'll definitely find a true friend. But if it's not, you may become like me, finding happiness in my own way. I want to remind you though-- you don't need someone to stay happy, or keep you company. This may sound silly, but you can even have your own invisible friends! I've had one, but that's very rarely for me. It's not silly though if you see the general idea; usually these friends are made from different dimensions of your personality or just because of will. There's a lot more fish in the sea, though, so I'm sure you'll find a true friend that's meant for you  :) Take care, and I hope you'll find a true friend soon!

    i know the feeling. but i got taken off a website instead of my friends. i can assure you they probably feel the same and are missing you, BUT its not worth dwelling over it. friends come and go without any choice in life and trust me, i lost the love of my life and my two of the best friends in the world. The thing is, you have to move on, because they wouldent want you feeling sad over them right? they'd want you to be the happy person you were when you were with them! for starters, i'll be your friend so your not scared to make some new ones. To be honest, i went through the exact same thing as you did and it DOES hurt very bad. But once you find some people that are willing to make you feel better, you know you've chosen the right friends again

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :) Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :)
