Dear Dish-It, I Like My Best Friend


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


Dear Dish-It,

I have a problem, my best guy friend had a crush on me in sixth grade and when a guy asked me out (and I said yes), he wrote me this heart-breaking letter about how I broke his heart. The thing is I did not even know he liked me! Well, I have had a crush on him for the past two months and people have told me that he has told them that he likes me. I want to ask him out but I don't want to lose our friendship. HELP!

Dear confused,

You and your friend have managed to stay friends despite his enormous crush on you, so what makes you think that telling him how you feel will ruin your friendship? He had the guts to tell you how much you meant to him even when you started going out with a different boy, and that takes a lot of courage. I think that you owe it to him, and yourself, to talk about whether or not you guys can be more than just friends. If he's no longer interested, then at least you can walk away knowing that you tried. But what if he does feel the same way about you? You wouldn't want to pass up that opportunity would you? Tell your friend how you feel - I really think you'll regret it if you don't. Hope this helps!


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 .

Report them to the principal. Tell them how you feel. If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )

When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.

You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!

Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :) You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them?  Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.  Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends. If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
