Dear Dish-It, I Used to Make Fun of Him

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

Dear Dish-It,

There is this boy named Josh that me and most of the girls made fun of last year. This year he changed from ugly and dorky to cute and sweet! He is amazing and I really wish I could turn back time and not have made fun of him. Almost every girl though, is afraid to talk to him because he was made fun of by just about all of us. I also got to talk to him for a little bit but he just said: 'What's wrong? You should be making fun of me right now, right?' He is so cute and I know what I did was wrong. There is only one thing that has gone my way so far. All the other girls can just sit there and drool too because they all are scared to ask him out or flirt with him. I mean, most of us made fun of him. What do I do!?! Please answer! PLEASE!

Dear MapleGirl,

There's not a lot you can do to completely erase all of the mean things you've said and done to this boy you're crushin' on. Even if your motives are pure and you really do want to get to know him better - how does he know that? His only experience with you is being made fun of, so it's probably tough for him to believe you're in any way interested in him. Things aren't completely hopeless though. If you are genuine in wanting to get to know this guy better, why don't you make an effort to patch things up with him? First you need to apologize for being a jerk - let him know that you were incredibly immature to have harassed him like you did but that you'd really love it if the two of you could hang out sometime. Make sure you actually are interested in him as a person, and not just how cute he is, before pursuing him - because it sounds like you've already put him through enough trauma for a lifetime.

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
