Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl when I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

My friend really likes this guy Mark and she cries over him a lot. She knows he doesn't like her but she doesn't wanna believe it. She feels depressed and wants to get over him. What should she do?

Dear mommyzlilmonsta,

The first ingredient to mending a broken heart is to surround yourself with good friends. I think your friend already has that part covered by having you by her side. Ingredient number two is just getting out and having as much fun as possible. Help take her mind off this heart-breaker by heading to the mall for a girls-only shopping adventure, go to the beach and scope out some hotties or grab some ice cream with a bunch of friends. There are plenty of fish in the sea, and all your friend needs to do is grab her fishing gear and start reeling in a new cutie.


Dear Dish-It,

My boyfriend and I love each other so much. But now my BF has gone away to Florida with his family. I really miss him and I'm sure he misses me. But I have this tingly, twisty thing in my stomach and I think he's cheating on me. He did tell me before he left for Florida, "I love you babe, with all my heart and you know I won't let go of you for the rest of my life. I'll see you in a month Sugar Lips. One last kiss?" Then he kissed me and we said "Good-bye." But how do I know if he's cheating on me? He can't email me, call me, or write a letter... what should I do?

Dear SadAngel302,

Hmmm, I'm not sure how your BF could have been any clearer about how much he cares about you. When you two parted he said, "I love you babe, with all my heart and you know I won't let go of you for the rest of my life." That's probably the nicest thing I've heard come our of a teenage boy's mouth. I don't think you have anything to worry about when it comes to your guy cheating. It's natural for you to feel a bit worried or insecure but the trick is to not give into those feelings. Relax, enjoy your time apart and just have a great summer!


Dear Dish-It,

I am totally ugly yet I got like five guys who think I'm cute. But the problem is, I only like one of them. Sometimes he can be sweet, like the one day he sang to me on my answering machine and he totally digs my 'rents! But he is also really mean at times! My mom and sis keep trying to tell me I'm not in love but I think they're wrong. How can I tell if I am or not? How can I tell if he is? And another thing is, I'm going into seventh grade. I know I am young but I've liked this boy ever since pre-K, so that is nine years! I mean he was my first peck kiss and that was when I was in kindergarten. Please help!!!

Dear lilromeoloverone,

I think it's more likely that you have a major crush on this boy of yours, rather than being totally in love with him. And that's understandable, seeing that he was your first kiss, and seems to really dig ya. It seems like this is a dude you could probably have a ton of fun with as friends and then see where things go. Don't rush anything... you're only heading into grade seven, so you have a ton of time ahead of you to meet lots of cool guys. And chances are, if five guys out there think you're a cutie, ya are! Time to get over the ugly feelings! Good Luck!


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 .

    Do You Get Jealous?

    • Yeah! I get jealous all the time.
    • There's a bit of the green-eyed monster in me.
    • No, I'm usually pretty trusting of people's word.
    • I've never really had reason to be.

    I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
