Dear Dish-It, Does Anyone Know What Love Is?


Dear Dish-It


Dear Dish-It,

I really like this guy, I met him in a chat room and we've been talking online for ages. He wants to meet me and I want to meet him. I think I love him but he has a girlfriend and he only likes me as a friend. He won't believe me when I say I love him! What should I do?

Dear sexy_capricorn,

Ok, I don't want to freak you out but this sounds like a recipe for disaster. There's a reason there have been after school specials galore on this very topic. Meeting strangers you've met online doesn't always end the way you thought it would. Even if this guy is the coolest guy you've ever met, the risks of meeting him are too great. And you already said this dude's got a GF and only wants to be friends. What's wrong with having an online friendship? The likelihood of this "dream guy" being a 40-year-old perv may be greater than you think. And do you really want to take the chance? Stick to dating boys in-the-flesh. Online romances just spell trouble with a capital "T".


Dear Dish-It,

How do u get a boy to really like you - even love you?

Dear mini-babe,

The key to getting a boy to like you is really quite simple. Just be yourself. This may sound lame but it's true. If you want to find that perfect guy, and fall madly in love, you have to get out there and let all the boys know what a fun, cool girl you are. There's no magic formula or potion to make boys swoon - you're just gonna have to play the dating game like everyone else. Good Luck!


Hey.... I see lots of people on here saying they love other people... but does anyone actually know what love is? Love isn't something that U can say to someone just cuz U went out with them for a week. Love is something that lasts a long time, and is a promise. So... if U just went out with someone for a couple of days... don't say, "I love u," cuz love is a very strong word. Yes this is a guy....

Thanks for your comments. I don't think that too many people really think about what love actually means. It's one thing to LOVE chocolate and a totally different thing to declare your love to someone you barely know. Kidzworld would like to hear what you all think about this topic. When are you too young to be "in love" and when do you really know if it's more than just a crush? Do you think the words "I love you" are taken seriously enough? with your thoughts and we'll post 'em up!


Love doesn't have an age. If you take time to know someone and they have everything that you are looking for, then you can say that you love them and really mean it.

I think that love is a very special word. You shouldn't say "I love you" to someone when you don't mean it. Some people say that just because they think they have to. Well, I have something to tell those people: Love isn't something you say just to make people happy, it's something that is truly from the heart. It depends though; people can believe in love at first sight just as long as they don't say "I love you" to the boy or girl that they think they love. Love is something that is important to me. I say "I love you" to my boyfriend because he means a lot to me, whenever I go somewhere I miss him, I worry about him, and sometimes I even cry myself to sleep because of him. I think that love sometimes takes control of you. It's not because everyone says "I love you" it doesn't mean you should say "I love you too." Though people say I'm too young to be in love, I don't agree because it's my heart and my mind. I know that this isn't just a crush because everytime someone comes to me just to disrespect my BF I get so mad, and I go on his side. He told me that he'd rather hang out with me than go somewhere that someone like him would want to go. I just love him with all my heart. If I could change one thing in the world it would be to be able to spend all the time I have when I'm not at school with him.

I have to agree with Ur_Phantasy. Love is not taken serious enough. Love is a promise, like he said, and should not be said after even, a week, of goin' out with someone.

I have a word of advice. A lot of kids are saying they love each other, then they say they break up. How is that love? Love to me is a lifetime of caring to another person.

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 .

    I've always felt the same way. My one best friend gossiped behind my back, used me, all that girl stuff. She took me for advantage and we had a bunch of fights because of her finding a new friend and completely acting as if I didn't exist, and I told her to give me at least some attention every once in a while if she can't even continue to talk to me daily. And.. I lost her. Well, she lost me. We both lost each other. But then I realized.. it's the people that you least expect to be nice to you you'll find kindness in. Why? Based on personal experience, and I'll tell you the story: For my gym class, me and my peers were supposed to make a group for a dance. This was when my best friend had found a new friend already, and the time at which we had a few fights because of that. Of course, I relied on my best friend to count me in her dance group. At lunchtime, I sat together with my best friend, and we ate our lunches in silence. All of a sudden, I brought up the dance groups and asked her straightforwardly: "Can I join your group?" No reply. "Kelly, can I join your group?" No reply. "I mean, since our class is uneven, I found it fair that there'd be a group of five, you know?" None at all. Kelly ignored me straight off the bat, leaving me speechless. My mind raced with thoughts, and I thought, maybe it's not worth having Kelly as a friend. A few days later, we were playing Dodgeball for gym. I was on Kelly's team, and overheard her talking with her new friends about who to pick for the dance group. One of her friends mentioned me, and Kelly said: "Oh no, we shouldn't pick her because _____ (I don't know what she said then)." I was shocked, but was anticipating it, so when the time came to choose groups, I saw my friend, Luke, ask two girls, Cher and Bridgette, to join their group. Surprisingly, Cher and Bridgette actually accepted him, and so I thought, "Wow, if they accepted Luke, they might accept me aswell!" and so built up the courage to ask them if I could join. Even though Cher and Bridgette were mean to me sometimes, I knew that I had to risk it and see what'd happen. Afterall, rejection is just another opportunity to find a better group. Little did I know, it'd be the best choice of my life. They were so happy, and even thanked me for joining them! I was speechless once more; I never knew that the peers that I thought I would never be friends with would actually be my friends!  So yeah, that's what I learnt, and I never regretted learning that fact. Ever since then, though, I've learnt not to trust people as much as I used to anymore. I learnt that independency is what works for me, what I was meant for in terms of socializing or working. But, other things may work for you. If you still want a friend, you can be independent and wait for the right person. However, if you still want a real friend, you can wait, but still mingle (hang out) with other people! I I'm not going to make fun of you because I know how you've felt, just as I stated in my past problem before. But you can move on from those friends, they're not worth your time and certainly don't deserve you as a friend. Trust me, if it's meant to be, you'll definitely find a true friend. But if it's not, you may become like me, finding happiness in my own way. I want to remind you though-- you don't need someone to stay happy, or keep you company. This may sound silly, but you can even have your own invisible friends! I've had one, but that's very rarely for me. It's not silly though if you see the general idea; usually these friends are made from different dimensions of your personality or just because of will. There's a lot more fish in the sea, though, so I'm sure you'll find a true friend that's meant for you  :) Take care, and I hope you'll find a true friend soon!

    i know the feeling. but i got taken off a website instead of my friends. i can assure you they probably feel the same and are missing you, BUT its not worth dwelling over it. friends come and go without any choice in life and trust me, i lost the love of my life and my two of the best friends in the world. The thing is, you have to move on, because they wouldent want you feeling sad over them right? they'd want you to be the happy person you were when you were with them! for starters, i'll be your friend so your not scared to make some new ones. To be honest, i went through the exact same thing as you did and it DOES hurt very bad. But once you find some people that are willing to make you feel better, you know you've chosen the right friends again

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :) Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :)
