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

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 totally feel the same way. The one guy I thought was interested friend-zoned me, so I've been kind of closed to relationships. One thing I've learned is not to jump into a relationship just because everyone else is. Just think, in 20 years they'll have all these bad memories of their many relationships, and you'll learn from their mistakes. Wanting to be in a relationship doesn't make you desperate either. You just feel a little left out. Trust me, I've been there. Don't feel alone. Being single, well, sucks, but don't worry, we've got your back, and I just know there's someone out there waiting to meet you.

    Hi everyone! I'm starting at a new school next year and I'm wondering if you have any tips. The thing is, it's my first ever year at a public school. I'm joining the 8th grade, so I'm so scared that everyone already knows eachother and I won't make any friends... :( If you have ANY advice or tips, I'd really appreciate it!
