Dear Dish-It, I Like My Best Friend

If you need help with a teen relationship, dating dilemma or any other teen issue, just ask Dish-It.

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 .

Don't exactly go up to her and say, "I don't wanna be friends," because although she is mean, she still might be hurt. Just don't really make it official, but slowly drift apart from her. Try to meet new people, maybe there's someone great you just haven't met yet. And maybe she's having problems of her own, not like that's an excuse. But in the end, if she does apologize to you, she might be a friend worth keeping, but those insults were pretty serious, not something best friends would do, and you probably wouldn't forgive her. I get that. Thanks for the good advice! I don`t see her often so drifting away is the smartest idea. Although I see her at family parties and stuff cause she is a family friend. I`ll try and drift away from her. If she gets better at being kind I`ll be her friend again most likely. Thanks!

I have this friend who has been my friend for 6 years. And she is so RUDE. She says mean things about me and MY MOTHER. Seriously she says really awful things about my mom like this: "Her IQ is high? Oh she must have took the IDIOT test." And tells me "Eww you wear Disney Princess shirts? Eww you are so messed up!" She always acts better than me whether we are alone or with people. She tries to make people hate me and she tries to act mature and she alway tells me "You should respect your mom and do what she tells you" She is awful. I wanna tell her she is mean and I dont wanna be friends. But I can`t! Its hard to do that when you know someone for 7 years. HELP!

As the previous person said, look online. There are very cute clothes available in bigger sizes! Also when you go shopping take a look in popular stores as well as less popular that might look as if they're for older people. Often they follow very similar trends but have bigger sizes!
