Dear Dish-it: Why Didn't He Call?

Dear Dish-it,


I like this guy and I asked him to go skating with me and asked him to call me after he asked his parents but … he never called! I don’t know what to think. Help!

Dear confused,


Sorry to hear about your confusing situation. Boys sure can be really tough to figure out sometimes. But before you do anything drastic, here are a few things to think about – I hope they will help you out.


Second Look

Obviously you like this guy, but you should take a second look at what he’s done in the past and see if you can figure out his feelings for you. If he knows you’re interested but isn’t really crushing back, he might be giving you a little space and distance so that you don’t get the wrong idea. If that’s the case, it’s best just to let it go and move onto a new crush!


Yup, He’s Into Me

After taking a second look, if it still seems pretty obvious that he’s into you, too, then it’s time to make another move. He may not have called you back because he was nervous, or because something came up at home. If you really like him and want to try to reach out to him again, forget about the phone call and talk to him in person to see how he reacts.


Nope, He Doesn’t Like Me Back

No biggie if you realize he probably didn’t like you in the same way in the first place, and that’s why he never called you back. There are plenty of guys out there to crush on, flirt with, call up and go skating with – just realize that it’s time to move on to something – and someone – new!

I had a situation like this once. I really liked a guy and we went to the movies together, he had his arm around me the whole time. A week later I asked him if he'd want to do something with me that weekend and he said sure. Next day there was no answer. He ended up 'dumping' me and dating someone else. Today I don't like him anymore because of how wishy washy he was, and am even thankful he's history because I found someone new. Trust me, you will have other guys.

Okay, hate to rain on your shine. But obviously the guy does not like you.. You asked him to call you and he never called! Did he sound sincere when you asked him or just okay what ever.. He either forgot or TOTALLY blew you off

Should Parents Track Their Kids With Phones?

  • Sure. What's wrong with that?
  • No way - parents already keep track of kids too much.
  • I don't really care either way.

Cyberbullying is just as serious as bullying offline. You should report them, block, and ignore. But if it's a continuous thing you should talk to an adult about it! It doesn't matter if you're on the other side of the world, there are many things law enforcement, even worldwide, can do to take steps in making sure it stops and doesn't happen to anyone else.
