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 .

    Who Do You Say I Love You To?

    • Anyone who'll listen.
    • Only my closest friends and my family.
    • The dog I've had since I was three.
    • I don't throw that word around. It'll ruin my punk-kid rep!

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

    I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!
