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 .

    Write an anonymous note. And tell him to put it somewhere that only you can get it back to see what he says.

    hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

    Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

    I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
