Dear Dish-It, How Do I Get His Digits?

Dear Dish-It serves up all the best dating advice for teens.

Dear Dish-It,

Hey there! Your advice for all those teens out there is going real good; keep up the good job! Now it's my turn to ask: what do I do? I've got a crush on a guy in another school (cuz my school's all girls), and I saw him at his school band's concert (I'm in band too). He's one year older than me and doesn't know I exist, and I don't know how to approach him, to get to know him, to get his contacts (phone number, email address, etc.). Should I wait for the next concert and say hi and get to know him? If yes, how do I do it? Or should I get his contacts from my friends' guy friends there? I'm really confused and he's on my mind 24/7. Hope you can give me some good advice so I can get to starting a friendship with him first, then slowly blooming into a relationship later (:

Dear tratakka,

The best way to get to know someone that you like is to talk to them one on one. You could get his digits from a friend of a friend, but would it really be easier for you to call him up on the phone? Probably not. If you are both in band and see each at concerts, it shouldn't be too hard to strike up small talk with him the next time you see him. Don't think too much about the perfect thing to say - just walk up and say, "Hey, how are you?" From there you can exchange names, etc. You might not be able to score a date right away, but it'll make it easier to chat with him in the future.


If you make the first move, he'll know that you think he's cool and if he's interested in you, he'll be compelled to chat with you more often. Don't try to push anything too quickly, cuz it takes time to get to know someone. It does make it a bit harder that you don't go to the same school, but it's not impossible for something to happen between the two of you. Once you've gotten to know him a little better, ask him to hang out sometime outside of school or band - try to avoid going to the movies though, an activity where you two can talk (like bowling, ice skating, etc.) is a much better choice. Good Luck!


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 .

    The best thing to do is to be simple and direct in a nice and tactful way. You can start by saying, "I need to talk to you. I know you really believe we have a friendship, but I don't feel comfortable with you on that level yet. This doesn't mean we will never talk again, we can be nice to each other, just that we aren't friends like you think we are." Try to be as nice as possible!!!!

    Ello Bun and Im sorry for saying this but your brothers been the brat and its normal though. Erm me suggestion is to keep the diary for one week of all the horrible things he done on you and then tell him and your Mum you want the family meeting about it and then show the list and make him explain each thing he done and say it has to stop. He probably wont listen but its worth trying and good luck :love [whispers I has other ideas too like hiding something of his and saying you will only give it back if he gives you back your whatever he has taken but Im not gonna give this advises ;-)]

    It is normal behavior for a young teenage boy, but if it gets out of hand, your parents should have a private conversation with him or get a counselor.
