Dear Dish-It, How Do I Start a Relationship?

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 .

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
