Dear Dish-It, Are We Going Out?

Dear Dish-It

Dear Dish-It,

I gave this guy a Valentine's card and he gave me one. He's really sweet and I know him from my work. Does this mean we're going out? Please help, I'm seeing him tomorrow.

Dear xXx,

Exchanging Valentine's Day cards is definitely a good step to starting a new relationship, but just because your crush has let you know that he's crushin' back, doesn't mean you guys are suddenly a couple. Valentine's Day can be very romantic, so it's understandable that you might want to put a label on this relationship, but the best advice I have is to just take things slow. There's no need to jump head on into something serious. Instead, take things one step at a time. Ask him out to a movie or to grab some ice cream with you. Hanging out together in a casual setting will help you guys figure out whether or not you're suited to officially become boyfriend and girlfriend and you'll have a lot more fun if you're not putting so much pressure on yourself. Have a very happy Valentine's Day!

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 .

    Maybe he likes you, as a friend or as more.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

    Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
