Dear Dish-It: Quickies (8)

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.


How do I get my crush to tell me he likes me before I move? – dream_live_laugh

I like this boy but I don’t know if he likes me – what do I do? – khaliyha

You can’t make someone tell you they like you or ask you out. If he likes you he’ll let you know and if he wants to ask you out he’ll do it – you just have to wait and see what happens. On the other hand, if you want to tell him you like him, you can read more advice on that on Kidzworld. Check it out!


I was wondering – do I need a lot of friends? I only have two. Is that enough or do I need more? – yayah1028

There’s no “right” amount of friends to have. If you’re happy with your two friends, that’s great! If you want to make more new friends, read: [kwlink 17960]How To Make New Friends[kwlink].


Me and my boyfriend only talk once a day. Is that good? – dgirl22

Sounds good to me! As long as you’re happy, that’s all that matters.


Three years ago my parents moved me from public to private school. I had my very best friend, Jenna, since kindergarten. Three years later I’ve made best friends at my new school, too, but I don’t get to see Jenna anymore. How do I keep our friendship strong? – aquasurfer

Great question! Staying friends after you’ve moved to a new school doesn’t have to be so hard. I think you should make a real effort to show Jenna that you still want her in your life. This means calling and/or e-mailing her often to fill her in on your life and to find out what’s going on in hers. You should also agree to see each other regularly, like once a month or even once a week if you have time. And don’t forget about including her in your new group of friends, too. Ask her to join you for a movie or a sleepover and introduce her to everyone new in your life. I’m sure she’ll appreciate it!

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.

    Hey! Yeah, I'm also one of those girls who doesn't wear makeup either... maybe on a rare occasion? Or if pestered into it.  I definitely understand where you're coming from with this. My mom doesn't exactly try to get me to wear it, but is she did, I wouldn't be to happy out this either. Don't feel bad. You're beautiful no matter what; makeup doesn't  define you -unless, of course you let it...  She probably wants you to feel "more grown up,"  or thinks it's nice for a "young lady," or that'll "boost your confidence." I don't know, there could be plenty of reasons.  If you feel uncomfortable the best thing to do would be to talk to her about it. Respectfully tell how you really feel and make sure she's listening.
