Dear Dish-It: My Worst Enemy Asked Out My Crush

Dear Dish-It,

I like this boy and I think he likes me. I got my BFF to ask him out for me and he said yes. But then my worst enemy asked him out and he said yes, too! What do I do? I’m freaking out!

Girl You Don’t Know

Dear GYDK,

Well, the thing is, this guy isn’t your boyfriend so really he can do whatever he likes, even if that means going on dates with both you and this other girl. You need to accept that and deal with it.

As for the girl you call your “worst enemy,” I understand that what she did made you upset. But why does it make you upset? Did she know you liked this guy and asked him out just to bug you? Or did she ask him out because she likes him, too, without knowing that he had already agreed to go out on a date with you? The two situations are very different, so you need to find out exactly what happened before you get so mad.

My final advice is to stop worrying about everyone else (your BFF, the boy you like and your worst enemy) and start directing your energy back toward yourself. The guy you like has agreed to go out with you, so concentrate on that. If you two find out you get along well and really like each other, then maybe you can take the relationship further. The more time you spend obsessing over other people the less likely the things you want to happen in your own life will come true.

    Okay so basically I used to go to this school and I met some of the people who I wish to be life long friends with. Problem: All of them go to a different school Problem: I go to a dumb boarding school and only get to spend 1 day and a half with them when i come back on fridays before I leave to go to school on Sundays. I really hate this school too. My sister graduated high school from here and my other sister is in her last year here. After this year I'm going to be all alone at this school. I'll have to be going here for the next seven years since its a middle and high school and I'm only in middle school. Plus my sisters are the best students there. Every time I tell people I'm the sister of Stephanie and Siri,they automatically have high expectations of me. But mainly,I just want to know how to keep in touch with my best friends. We can't even have phones at school so I can't talk to them during the week. [s:sm3/1jw0]
