Dear Dish-It, My Ex Wants to Get Back With Me

Advice on love, sex, romance and life for teens.
Ask Dear Dish-It

Dear Dish-It,

My ex wants to go back with me. I told him NO I don't like you no more but we can be friends. He still asks me and he has my friends come say, "Do you want to go back with Byron?" What should I do about it?


I like this other boy. But I think I impress him too much. When I talk to him, I get nervous. What should I do about myself? A lot of boys at my school like me and want to go with me. What should I do about it? I smile too much so they probably think I like them. They ask me where do I live and what is my number. Should I stop smiling? Should I walk away? Should I say I'm not telling you my number and where I live and walk away? Please write back to me.

Dear J-Gurl,

Okay first things first. Stick to your instincts and stay away from the ex. Tell your friends to step-off as well. They may just be trying to be nice to Byron cuz he's still all crushin' on ya but if you're not into him, they need to respect that. Tell 'em exes are exes for a reason.


Now, as for the rest of the guys who you're thinkin' are diggin' ya, I have two words for you: lucky girl! It's always nice to have attention. Even if you're not into the guy, it's still flattering. As for givin' out your personal info - like your digits or addy - stick with the silent treatment there. It's probably best to just tell the guys nicely that you're not cool with sharing that info. You've made it clear in your letter that you don't want to give it out, so don't.


And as for the guy you like who makes you all nervous - that's normal, girlfriend. There's nothing wrong with ya and no way to fix it. Sorry. Just keep pushing through the fear and get to know him. After awhile it'll be easy to hang with him.


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    What's Sure to Get His Attention?

    • Smile and giggle at all his jokes.
    • The bend-and-snap technique from Legally Blonde.
    • Follow him home from school every day - even though you live on the other side of town.
    • What's with the games? Just ask him out and stop playin' around already!

    I'd also shift the blame onto the parents. It's disgusting and appalling to know that parents don't care about their own child's wellbeing.

Her parents didn't tell her do anything with anyone , She did. Her parents isn't involved in this case!!  She's 13. Kids that age base some of their decisions off of what their parents say. Her parents should have told her what's right and what's wrong, which they most likely didn't do since apparently they didn't care.
