Dear Dish-It, I Have a Cyber Crush

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 .

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
