Advice About Cyber Crushes

Dear Dish-It,

I recently developed a crush on a guy I met over chat. He is really perfect and says the most amazing things. It's as if he knows me. I also understand that I can only know what he tells me, but I can't help feeling this way. Please tell me what to do!

Dear avrils_no1_fan,

There's nothing wrong with you having a crush on someone you met in chat. Crushes are natural and healthy and they help you make it through some of the dreariest days. Imagine if you didn't have anyone to daydream about in math class or at dinner when the 'rents are gabbing about grocery lists and laundry. The important thing is to remember what you already know - the dude in chat is probably a cool guy, but there's always a chance that he's not what - or who - he says he is. You should have fun chatting, but keep it light - don't give out any personal information, like your full name and address, and be sure to keep your relationship restricted to cyber space. That means keep the crushin' to harmless daydreams! Also, figure out what it is about the cyber-dude that you find attractive and look for those qualities in guys you know in person!


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 .

I always like to think when people are rude - it's more of a negative reflection of their own insecurity and self and LESS about you at all.  Despite knowing that - it's still hurts. I am glad you shared your story, that was brave and I bet other girls here will feel a little better knowing they are not alone in feeling this way.  Lastly, I know none of you guys know me yet as today is my first day BUT I LOVE, like LOVE Henry David Thoreau. He is one of my absolute favourite writers. <3    Haha that's great, yes, he is. When my grandfather died we had put it as a quote.  Haha (: You guys are amazing! Great advice ^-^ Now my little bit of advice... thanks for leaving such a broad area to touch on... *grumbles* What can I say? And don't you forget it! Remember, if you ever need a friend, I''ll be here. So... send me a friend request if you're up to it ^-^

I think it's good that you put this up. It's obvious that you care about him. Maybe he just needs a friend? Not necessarily... "a girl."  Do you know why he's been so down?
