Dear Dish-It, I saw my boyfriend kiss my best friend
Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".
There's this girl in my school, a real hottie. I like her but I don't think she likes me. I have a few problems... a few of my other friends like her. I think she's seeing someone but she might not be. I don't know how to tell her I want to go out with her. I really don't think she likes me. Can you give me a plan to tell her that I like her, or at least tell me how to tell her? We were talking on the phone and she brought up sex.
Hmmm, that's a tough one. I can give you advice but there ain't a magic potion to make someone crush on you. If you're already talkin' on the phone, you must be friends and she must like ya a bit. And since she brought up sex, I'm thinkin' she likes ya more than you know. To get this hottie to return your crush, you need to be a friend first. Listen to her, be a sweetie and then build from there. Talk more on the phone, just casual stuff... and keep it all about her. Then hang on the weekends and after skool, but keep it cool. When you think you're pretty tight, ask her out. That's the best I can offer ya, so good luck!
I've been going out with this boy for a few months and he told me he loves me and wouldn't give me up for anything. Then, just a few weeks ago I saw him kiss my best friend. I was so angry that I told one of the teachers at skool. There I was crying in front of him when we kissed. My teacher is 24 and I am 15. What should I do???
Ask for an A! Sooo kidding! That is wrong on too many levels to list. Without a doubt you have to tell your parents. I don't care what you think - whether you think he's a great guy, a hottie, a good teacher, whatever. He stepped way over the line. No matter how ya look at it, he abused his position of authority when he kissed you. Hello, he's your teacher! You may not think this is a big deal but know this girl - if he did it to you, he'll do it again. And next time it may be more than a kiss. Remember this guy is in one of the most trusted positions an adult can have with a kid. He's up there with your 'Rents and your doctor. He sounds way sketchy and totally not trustworthy. Tell it to the peeps that count... tell your 'Rents.
I need help. I like a boy and he likes me as a friend, but his best friend likes me. What should I do?
You know the last letter I sent you... well it got worse! That guy I liked hit on my best friend and his best friend is sexually harassing me. What should I do!?! Please write me back!
Yikes! This does sound messy. Okay. you're crushin' on hottie number one, but he's crushin' on your gal pal. Meanwhile, hottie number one's best boy is crushin' on ya. How does your friend feel 'bout all this? Cuz if it's no-never to her than ya need to get her to make the message clear to your boy (number one) that you're all that. She needs to talk you up some. You're gonna have to do some talkin' too. You need to be real clear with the friend (that's all over you) that it ain't gonna happen. Be clear, but be kind. You don't wanna make an enemy outta your boy's nearest and dearest. Besides, no one likes rejection. If this doesn't work, it's not meant to be... at least not now.
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 Dish-It here. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,>Well dishem up, too.
