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 .

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
