Dear Dish-It, I'm Going to Be All Alone

Dear Dish-It,

I have two older brothers who mean the world to me. I mean, they taught me everything I know. Now Jayson, who's 18, is already planning to leave for university. He was planning on staying home to help dad with the family business but now he's leaving to some school to be a doctor or something like that! What do I do? My other brother is 17 and he'll be leaving in a year or so too. Then I'll be all alone. I need help!

Dear some1_you_don't_Know,

Even though growing up is generally pretty cool, there are certain things that aren't so fun to deal with. One of those things is having your siblings move out and go their separate ways. When you're the one being left behind, it's totally understandable that you would feel like your world is being turned upside down. But, instead of getting bummed about your brothers taking off to do their own thing, you've gotta look for the positives. You're not going to have to fight to get into the bathroom anymore, there will be no more games of remote control tug-of-war and you're guaranteed that the 'rents are going to give you a lot more freedom. Plus, think of the cool trips you can plan to go and visit your bros. You'll be able to master the art of letter writing, and maybe brush up on your photography skills so you can send pics to your brothers of all the cool things they're missing at home. Just hang in there and before you know it, you'll be the one shipping off to college and your brothers will be the ones sending you care packages!

    So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?  Ello and I thinks he likes you and feels your the close enough friend what he can joke around with. He doesnt want to offend you or upset you and that shows he cares about your feelings. Me advises is take your time and see how your friendship develops.  If it feeels natural to ask him does he like you then ask him and theres no rush :) Good luck :love
