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?
lydster


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 .

    Do Jerks Deserve a Second Chance?

    • No! Once a jerk, always a jerk.
    • Only if they're sorry for the way they acted.
    • No, they shouldn't have been jerks to begin with.
    • Yes! Everyone makes mistakes and deserves a second chance.

    I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
