Dear Dish-It: Rejected

Dear Dish-It,

I sent you two questions but they were never answered. I feel rejected.

Confused & Worried

Dear CW,

I’m really sorry that I didn’t answer your questions before now. The thing is, I get hundreds of emails from Kidzworld Members just like you each and every day, and it’s pretty much impossible for me to answer every single one of them! Here’s some more info about me – and the many other places on Kidzworld where you can go to have your questions answered!

Busy Bee

Like I said, I literally get hundreds of questions from kids each and every day! Can you imagine how much time it would take to answer them all? Basically, it’s impossible, even though I’d like to! That’s why, on the main Dish-It Page, we say: “Dish-It gets a load of letters every day so it may take a while to reply to yours. Or, if your question is one that she's already answered, search the Dish-It Categories on the right side of this page for her advice!”

More Advice

You can find all of my advice listed under seven categories on the right-hand side of this page:

Choose the one that best fits your question by clicking on it. You’ll be taken to an archives page that lists all of the questions I’ve already answered that fall under that category. Scroll down until you find a question that’s similar to yours, click on the “Read More” button and check out my advice! If your question is slightly different, feel free to ask other Kidzworld Members to help you out by adding a comment below my advice. Check back often to see what other kids think you should do!

Kidzworld Boards

Your other option is to post your question on our Boards. This is a great place to get advice from other kids who are going through or have gone through a situation similar to yours. Just click on “Boards” in the main menu, scroll down until you find the “Dear Dish-It” category, and click on the right topic for your question. Then post your question and watch as the advice starts pouring in!

Cheating - Is It Cool Or Cruel?

  • As long as you don't get caught, it's cool.
  • Totally not cool.
  • It's not that big of a deal.
  • I think it depends on the situation.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

Dear Dish-It:  I recently became friends with an upperclassman guy, Tom*, from my high school. We started hanging out about a month or so ago. To be honest, I thought the relationship was platonic: we've never flirted although we've bantered, I don't use flirty emojis with him and although I spend a lot of time with him, he has always said how much I remind him of my brother (who is the same age as me), and he's never stolen glances at me or given me the impression that he was into me that way. I rationalized that he saw me as a little sister the same way as I viewed him as an older brother, since he constantly made references to my brother and never attempted to flirt nor gave off any of the typical visual signals of attraction. I also don't see myself as someone who'd be attractive or crush-worthy from the perspective of a high school junior, since I'm a freshman in high school and definitely not modelesque, and we pretty much stuck to group outings. So when he asked me out 2 weeks ago, needless to say it came as a surprise. We decided to remain friends, but I'm having trouble establishing boundaries, especially since my sister informed me that one of his friends told her that Tom "wasn't going to give up on me" and that Tom was going to adhere to the "Three Strikes Rule": apparently, he can wait and ask me out 2 more times before giving up on pursuing me.  Dish-It, how do I remain friends with this guy without this becoming awkward? What do I do? Just this past weekend he wanted to s**pe call me and kept s.n.a.p.ch*tting me. I literally feigned accidentally sleeping in yesterday to avoid meeting up with him (he invited my siblings and I to go play tennis at our high school), and I haven't talked to him since Saturday (we do track together so it was kind of unavoidable). I need space, and I want to remain friends, but he's really making me feel uncomfortable.  Thanks, -Perks. P.S.: This is the second junior who has asked me out this year (and the second guy I've rejected). Maybe I'm just really naive and oblivious, but I genuinely don't see myself as attractive to guys...how do I stop accidentally leading them on? Because I'm not trying to, really-I'm not flirty or anything. I have no idea why they like me, I don't think I'm being overly nice and I'm not answering texts right away or anything. This guy didn't get my phone information from me, he got it from another person on our coed sports team and he originally texted me 2 months ago to tell me that he was worried about my brother so I didn't think he was making a move on me. *Names have been changed for privacy reasons. (Also: the chat filter keeps unnecessarily censoring my writing).

Maybe find a few nerds like me... who knows. My dad told me people would make fun of me, but i don't care.... You will face a little making fun of, but as long as you can get past that and ignore others, I think you'll be just fine. If you're already aware of any others like you throughout the school, maybe you should look into making a group! Slip them a note or talk to them yourself, see if they're interested. Good luck!
