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.

Why Didn't He CallWhy Didn't He Call

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!
