Dear Dish-It, Does He Like Me Again?

Help for teens with love, sex and dating problems.
Advice on Teen Love

Dear Dish-It,

There's this guy at school that I liked all of seventh grade. Well, I'm in eighth now and I thought I was over him, cuz he was a total jerk last year. Turns out, that he's 10 times nicer and I really want to go out with him. He's cute, funny, smart, the works. But I don't know if he likes me back. He's paying a lot more attention to me than he did last year. He's acting like he did in sixth grade and I know he had a crush on me then. What should I do?

Dear Mouwe,

Ask him out. If you can deal with the fact that he was a jerk before and you're getting that special vibe from him - just go for it. It sounds like this guy has had a change of heart and may be worth a second chance. Good luck!


Dear Dish-It,

One of my best friends is really mad at me. No matter what I say she just won't listen. What can I say to her so maybe she will listen? She has never been mad at me before. PLEASE HELP ME SOON!!!!

Dear hannah_banana23,

Dude! What the heck did ya do to get her so ticked-off? It's a little hard for me to know how you should win your BFF back if I don't know what got her upset to begin with. Ok, here's all I can suggest with limited info... Give her some time to cool off. Obviously, whatever you did really hurt her or angered her and she needs time to chill. After a couple days - maybe after the weekend - I would try approaching her again.


If it was something dumb like an argument over whether you love Jack Osbourne more or she does, then I would make a joke out of it. When you see her wave a hand-made white flag or give her a funny friendship card or something. If it's something more serious - like you kissed her BF or you got her grounded or something, then I would give her a mushier card and tell her how sorry you are and how much she means to you. Sometimes, cards or letters do the trick better than talking it out because she'll really have the chance to listen (read) what you have to say and you have time to get the words out right. Good luck.


Dear Dish-It,

I have a crush on a boy and I want to ask him to be my secret boyfriend but I don't know how. Can you help?

Dear lydster,

I can sorta help. I mean I can suggest that you just tell the dude you like him - or ask him to hang out with ya, go to a movie or out for some chow. What I can't do is ask him for ya. The thing with love and crushes is it's up to you (and/or him) to make it happen. Now I have a question for you - why do you want a "secret" boyfriend? That's kinda lame if you ask me. If you're not ready to have a boyfriend out in the open, maybe you're not ready for one at all. Don't mean to be harsh - just tellin' it like it is.


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 .

    • Only if they're sorry for the way they acted.

It might be better if you just ignore her.  thankyou, thankyou :P can you guess where my inspiration was from? :D
