Dear Dish-It, Valentine's Day Dilemmas

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

Dear Dish-It,

Hi, I have a boyfriend named Zack but I am too young to go on a date. What do I do for Valentine's Day? Any advice? Let me know!

Dear Ms. Understood,

First off, good for you girl! Knowing that you're not ready to date, and accepting that, makes you cool. Now, as for what to do... you two could have a "lunch date" where ya share some grub in the cafeteria with your gang. I'm all for a cute, homemade valentine slipped in his locker. If it's homemade, you can glue some mag pics on that are his style, like snowboardin' pics or skate pics, whatever he's into. A cute poem - yours or Shakespeare's, etc. - is also a winning idea.

Dear Dish-It,

Valentine's Day is coming up and I fancy someone but I can't get his attention. I am 11 and the boy is 11. How do I get his attention?

Dear Lil_Babe,

Well, you picked the perfect day to give your crush a little hint, that's for sure! V-Day is a perfect crush-revealing day cuz everyone is in the lovin' mood. So, get out the art supplies or head to a card store and get your guy a valentine! In the card, tell him you think he's all that and a big bag of chips. It's simple, it's to the point and better yet, it's Valentine's Day so it's not too over-the-top. If he isn't feeling the same vibes for ya, no biggie - just remember that there are other fish in the sea! You might want to include a little chocolate treat or some of those little cinnamon hearts.

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 .

    Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

    Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

    No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

    Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
