Dear Dish-It: Is He Nervous Or Does He Hate Me?

Dear Dish-It,

I’m going out with this guy (my friend even asked him if he was still going out with me and he says he is). He asked me to meet him at lunch but then he wanted me to go over to him and when I didn’t he wouldn’t come over to me, either. Then I saw him on the other side of the school and after we said hi my friend said to give him a hug so I was about to but then he said bye and ran off. Does this mean he’s nervous or he doesn’t want to go out with me anymore?


Dear Megan,

It sounds like this guy still likes you and wants to go out with you but he’s really nervous around you. Maybe he’s even just naturally shy. But don’t trust my opinion – you should just ask him what he thinks and how he feels about you. Otherwise, does it really count as going out?

The other thing I would recommend is to stop involving your friend in your relationships with this guy or any other guy you date in the future. It could be that he’s all nervous because there are other people always around you and he just needs to be with you alone in order to feel comfortable.

    Maybe he likes you, as a friend or as more.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

    Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
