Dear Dish-It, He Says I'm Too Young

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl when I've thought about this some more".

Dear Dish-It,

Hey, I'm only 13! There is this guy that I like, and he likes me, but he is in 10th grade and I'm in 7th! But I really want to date him. He said he would go out with me but I'm still too young! These are my two questions. Why will he date me when I'm in 9th and he is a senior, but not now? It is the same amount of age difference! Do you think he will take advantage of me since he is older? Thanks soooo much!

Dear Oompa1316,

The difference between a boy in 10th grade and a girl in 7th grade is a lot bigger than you may think. The two of you are in completely separate worlds right now - you being in elementary school and him in high school. You each probably have different friends and different priorities. This guy you're crushin' on probably thinks you're a pretty cool chick but is mature enough to realize that you two just aren't in the same place in life right now. And although the age gap will still be the same in a couple of years, chances are you guys will have a lot more in common by then. You'll be able to attend the same school dances, you'll be old enough to go to a movie or grab a slice of pizza with him and you might even have some of the same friends. For now, concentrate on havin' a ton of fun with friends and meeting new people instead of pining away for someone you can't have. If you and your crush are meant to be together, it'll happen when it's right.


You know, no one is ever too young for anything. See, I love Ja Rule and I don't think I am to young.

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 here. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share, We'll dish 'em up, too.

Does Age Really Matter?

  • Age ain't nothing but a number.
  • Yeah, age matters when you are dating someone.
  • It depends on the stiuation.
  • My 'rents sure seem to think so!

Rosa, you just have to tell your mom about the real you! But, don't listen to what others say, just be yourself. Don't force yourself to be yourself though. Just go with the flow and be yourself.
