Dear Dish-It: Summer Romance

Dear Dish-It,

I really like this guy and he likes me, too. How do we stay connected over the summer?

I love music

Dear ILM,

School’s out and summer’s here: no more teachers, no more books and…wait, no more flirting with the cute guy in math class! That’s the one drawback of summer break, isn't it? Especially if you’re still just crushing and unsure what the “status” between you is. Here’s how to stay connected with your crush over the break - the RIGHT way!

Daydream…in Moderation

Someone (a famous person, I think) once said, “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” In other words: the less you see of your crush, the more you tend to like him or her. But be careful: too much daydreaming and not enough reality can give you an unrealistic perception of what your crush is really like, especially if you don’t know them that well to begin with. Daydreaming is totally fine (and fun!), but make sure you keep your fantasies in check over summer break so you don’t go back to school in September expecting too much (you could be disappointed).

Communicate…in Moderation

If you IMed, emailed or texted with your crush during the school year, there's no reason why you can't continue to check in with them over the summer. Just make sure it's MUTUAL (that is, you're not the one doing all the texting) and definitely DO NOT don’t spend all your vacay time waiting for them to appear in the KW Chat Room. Stay busy doing all the warm-weather stuff you love to do and try not to let your crush take over your entire summer holiday.

Keep it Real & Get it Together

Not seeing your crush as much over the summer as you did when school was on may make you wonder what they’re up to… Try to fight the urge to check their KW Profile every day, though, and don’t update your own profile like crazy to make it seem like you’re SOOO busy. Just be yourself, be cool and be real and you can’t go wrong!

In terms of getting together…if you’re ready to spend time with your crush outside the classroom, just because school’s out doesn’t mean you can’t do stuff with them! If you’re part of the same group of friends, why not plan a summer outing for everyone? If you’d rather have one-on-one time with just your crush (and you feel comfortable asking), go ahead and see if they wanna hang out some time. The nice thing about this season is that there’s plenty to do, especially outdoors… Get creative and have fun!

HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think I love music should do? Got any good advice? Leave your comment below!

My mom can be that way too. There's nothing like that, you're exagerating, you dont even know what you're talking about. When all tthaat time I was going through it. She didn't have a clue honestly.

Two years ago my parents broke up. I was never really the same after that point. My mother she began to just not care about anything. She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting

theres this guy that i really REALLY like, im not sure if he likes me back. i put my mobile # on a piece of paper and slipped it in his locker, he hasn't texted or called me yet. Today at lunch i asked his friend to ask if he likes anyone but his friend keeps lying to me and won't tell me if he said anything. The guy and I were best friends in 5th grade but now that we're in different classes we don't talk much anymore. My friends said that i have a chance with him and that we have a lot in common, but im pretty sure he likes this other girl but im also pretty sure he likes me. I want to make a move but i don't wanna end our friendship i don't know what to do.

It's good to have both to talk too about things. But, what's the point of being with someone if you can't trust them enough to even tell them things?
