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!

    That is the type of decision capable of changing your life. However, if you don't want to be part of it (And I highly recommend not engaging in that sort of lifestyle), then as hugebear said, you should sit your sister down and explain to her why you do not want to be part of a gang and maybe since you're afraid to lose her, explain that just because you want no part in it does not mean you want to lose her as well.

    Me advices is talk to her.  Tell her exactly what your feeling and you doesnt want to join and ask her why she is joining.  Tell her why you think she shouldnt and also add that you feels that you will lose her if she does.

    So my big sister just recently told me she was in a gang, I kinda already figured she was but I never asked. I don't really know how to feel about it. She's like my best friend, I can come to her for anything and I'd do anything for her! Anyways she asked me if I wanted to join the family, I haven't really given her an answer yet, and she keeps trying to pull one out of me so I jokingly asked what gang she was in and she told me she was a crip.Telling me that she and her boys will have my back and stuff... I don't want to lose her if i say no but I also don't want to be in a gang.  =(

    You should probably tell your mom or ny of your siblings about it (if you have any siblings)... or maybe you should just ask your dad about it when he's in a good mood. Hope I was of help.... :)
