Relationship Advice For Teens

Dear Dish-It,

I have a problem and I hope you can give me some of your awesome advice! There's this guy I have a huge crush on but I can't figure him out. We went to Epcot together and he was really flirting with me on the way back home. I have seen him recently when I was invited over to his house (by his parents! Not him.) I walked into his room and he told me to make myself comfy, so I did. I was there all afternoon and evening with him watching movies and talking. But I went to his house a couple days later and he didn't say hi and just left. It was like he didn't care I was there or something. What's with that? I need your help with him. How can I turn this crush into a relationship?

Dear lillady4ev,

Okay, I'm going to assume that your crush is a family friend and that's why his 'rents are invitin' you over to their place. And that's also why your crush doesn't feel obligated to stick around when you come over. It sounds like there's definitely some potential for a relationship with this guy but if it's a family friend you're talkin' about, you'll be taking some big risks making a move. If you profess your love and he doesn't feel the same way, it could be awkward between you two for a while. If he does feel the same way, and you guys get together, will you be able to handle it if things don't work out? This doesn't mean don't try to take things to the next level with this guy, just think of the consequences before jumping in. So, try inviting him to hang out on neutral ground - like a local coffee shop, park, etc. This way, he's not going to feel like his parents are making him spend time with you. And if he's excited to chill with ya that way, he's probably crushin' on you too! Good Luck.


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 .

    Would You Date a Family Friend?

    • Totally! What a great way to meet someone.
    • Only if they were really cute.
    • I don't think so.
    • No way! It'd be like dating my brother/sister.

    There is someone in my class and she makes a comment about everything the teacher says and she always feels the need to make everything about her. I can't stand her. I hope I won't have any classes with her next year.

    Dear UnknownPoster,     Hello, hope you're enjoying your day! i suggest you step up to the home plate and ask," is there chemistry in this so called relationship"? let her answer, if it is yes. than build a STRONG relationship. if its NO than just say "sorry i asked" and say that you'd like to continue as friends!!!!                                                         -best of luck

    Dear Dish-It, My little sister, Sydney, ruins EVERYTHING! She spills secrets, messes up auditions, and even feeds bits of homework, to the FISH!  Once, my crush came over while my parents weren't home. I was babysitting Sydney when I forgot we had to finish a school project, me and my crush. When he got to my house, My sister told him about how i use to have BRACES and a bright pink TEDDY BEAR! How can i try to cooperator with her, when i just want to strangle her! (my crush still is friends with me by the way) From, Jez {}

    Well you won't want to volunteer because that's unpaid.  Your profile says you're 11 which means you can't get a real job but you can babysit (you'll need first aid training for this), or you can pet sit or do yard work. Those are good jobs to have at your age.
