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!

    Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]

    I understand how hard this must be. Because I should probably take this advice too.. I would try and focus on school lessons and ignore others. Don't be afraid to join a club! If you go to one that interests you then you might meet someone with common interests. I hope you get through this.
