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

Serving up advice for teens on how to deal with love, relationships and crushes.
Advice for Teens on Love

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.

The best thing to do is to be simple and direct in a nice and tactful way. You can start by saying, "I need to talk to you. I know you really believe we have a friendship, but I don't feel comfortable with you on that level yet. This doesn't mean we will never talk again, we can be nice to each other, just that we aren't friends like you think we are." Try to be as nice as possible!!!!

Ello Bun and Im sorry for saying this but your brothers been the brat and its normal though. Erm me suggestion is to keep the diary for one week of all the horrible things he done on you and then tell him and your Mum you want the family meeting about it and then show the list and make him explain each thing he done and say it has to stop. He probably wont listen but its worth trying and good luck :love [whispers I has other ideas too like hiding something of his and saying you will only give it back if he gives you back your whatever he has taken but Im not gonna give this advises ;-)]

It is normal behavior for a young teenage boy, but if it gets out of hand, your parents should have a private conversation with him or get a counselor.
