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!

    Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)
