Dear Dish-It, I Have a Cyber Crush
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!
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 .
