Dear Dish-It, How Do I Make Him Like Me?

Dating Advice For Teens

Dear Dish-It,

Okay, there is this boy named Vern. He is what you might call my number one crush. But, I just moved here about seven months ago, and started a new school district. Anyway, I was going out with a boy named Mark, but Vern is my true love. I broke up with Mark because Vern said that he would go out with me for one day because I told him that I liked him. So, now Mark is really mad and jealous of Vern. Vern really doesn't like me but I feel that he is the one. I am the only girl in the whole junior high who likes him. How do I get him to notice? And, how do I get him to like me?

Dear The Fighter,

So, let me get this straight - you are crazy about a boy at school who wants nothing to do with you? And, when he told you he'd go out with you for one day, you dumped your boyfriend? Does that seem like a smart move? What could you possibly get out of a one-day relationship with a guy who doesn't even like you? I would tell you to just get back together with your boyfriend Mark, but that doesn't seem fair to him. You stomped all over his heart and then you're annoyed when he gets upset. I don't think your problem is how to get Vern to notice you - it's how can you learn to treat other people with more respect. You might think this Vern guy is the one, but it's clear he doesn't want anything to do with you, so just let it be. You can't force people to like you or feel the same way as you do. Instead, focus on being nicer to the peeps who actually care about ya!


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 .

    What Happens if Your Crush Isn't Crushing?

    • I'd lock myself in my room and cry.
    • Oh well, it's their loss.
    • I'd pretend I didn't like them to begin with.
    • What's new? My crushes never like me back.

    I don't see that being an "issue" also, you can't always get what you want. AND, it's VERY close to Christmas.

    well this is kind of a long story but ill try to make it as short as possible. so it all started about 4 years ago. this new boy came to my school. he was super cute and all the girls had a crush on him. at first i did not like him in a crush way but after a while feelings started growing. we started talking and he seemed to like me to. after elementary was done we ended up going to the same middle school.fast forward to this year me and him are in the same class. while i was in 6th grade i found my best friend me and her been bffs since then. she is also in the same class. ever since the begging of this year they grew really close. they are always talking and it seems like she like him and vice versa. every time they are together i feel this overwhelming since of jealousy and anger. like is she better than me or??? the thing that really gets to me is that she knew i liked him. omg i need advice like what should i do :mad
