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 .

    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.

    lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

    Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me

    you really need to have a proper chat with your parents. you're doing really well in school, and seem to have a good set of friends, and tell them that you should be able to go out, i mean you've done nothing wrong and surely should be allowed a little freedom in return?
