Dear Dish-It, Why Hasn't He Made His Move?


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I like a boy and he likes me too but he's not asking me out, even though I know about his feelings! His sister, who is my sister's best friend, told me about how much he likes me and everything. Also, my sister and his sister are on a constant mission to get us to go out but it still doesn't work! What should I do? I don't know what his problem is. Is it just cuz he's older than me and he's ashamed to be with me? HELP!

Dear Confused, Angry, and Upset,

There are a million possibilities why the boy you're crushing on hasn't made his move yet. My guess is he's not too happy about your sis and his sis meddling in his love life and is feeling a bit overwhelmed by the whole situation. No one likes to feel pressured into going out with someone, even if they really like that person. Instead of waiting for someone else to hook you up with this guy, why not invite him to hang out with you sometime? I'm pretty sure he'd dig it a lot more if you just made your move rather than having to deal with his nagging sister and her mission to set the two of you up. Good luck!

    What's the difference between emo and goth? :confused I wouldn't know I'm awful when it comes to stereotypes although mean girls and the DUFF have been very educational.  My style is meeeeee :love the style that always changes. But I have always been an outcast, so I'd rather just be a loner or something.

    Sixteen and Twenty-one? Ah nah. This isn't okay at all. I think your parents or you should tell her parents. This is the only way.

    While engagement isn't illegal for juveniles, marriage is as you can already tell. Judging by your feelings, I don't think the relationship will last long enough for him to be able to wait. I heard some courts will allow it, depending on location. Knowing whether her engagement is okay is a tricky thing. She seems pretty confident in the relationship. As for your own feelings, how well do you know him? Do you have any knowledge about him outside their love life? Do her parents know anything about him? If you don't now the answers, don't be afraid to ask them to her or her parents. I'm also a 16-year-old girl and I don't feel comfortable with it. Many young adults have a hard time understanding the transition from  teen to adult, but if he's put his problems on her, that's a bad sign. I don't think 5 months is long enough in my opinion and I think this could lead to making bad habits in a relationship. I appreciate that you're trying to help your friend be safe. Hopefully some of her closest people will help her with you. They don't necessarily have to steer her against him, but they should help guide her into deciding what's best ad how to carry on from that.
