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!

confused

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!

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.

Did something happen between you two in the past? If so, I feel like she might have some unresolved issues with you that you need to discuss with her. And, time doesn't always mean a lot. I've gotten closer to someone before compared to someone whom I had known for 8 years.

Dear Dish-it,                          Me and my friend just started talking again, and it seems like she regrets it. She'll leave me for the people she has only known for a couple of months, when I've been friends with her for a year. Also, she gets annoyed with me, and I don't know what to do.

I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.

My dog, Loki, was old and had cancer. He was 14. My mom healed one of his cancer spots but not even a month later, she put him down. He had life in him. He played like a puppy. If she healed one spot, why couldnt she heal the rest? He could have lived right? He was like my little brother, I loved him like one. He was family. Every since he passed, Ive been depressed. Losing weight and not wanting to go out and hangout with friends. Me and my mom get into fights more. At some points, I hate her for what she did. I dont dare tell anyone about my depression and I cry every night until 3:30 am. I have considered cutting but I dont want anyone to judge me. Im not going to but I just want someone to understand what his loss did to my heart. Ive had him since i was a baby. He was my best friend. And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help? I was mad. Can anyone relate? Can someone help me? ( im not going to a therapist btw ) UGH WHAT DO I DO?!
