Dear Dish-It, Everyone Says We Should Date

Dish-It serves up advice about what to do when you like your friend as more than a friend.
Advice About Dating

Dear Dish-It,

I really like this boy in my year and he's like my best friend. Everyone says we should go out cuz we hug and talk about everything. He flirts with me a lot, but when someone says we should go out, he says no. He's been out with my sister too. I'm really confused! Should I ask him out?

Dear dR,

You're not the only one who's confused. You say he flirts with you, but he's been out with your sister too? There's one of three possibilities for what's going on here. One, he only thinks of you as a friend. Two, he's still into your sister. And three, he likes you but is scared to ruin your friendship - maybe that's why he says no when people suggest that the two of you should hook up. If it's scenario number one, take comfort in knowing that you have a really great guy friend who you can talk to about everything and who you can go to when you need a guy's perspective on something. If it's scenario number two, it's not cool of him to be leading you on to get close to your sister - and you'll have to tell him that if that's the case. But, if it's scenario number three, hold off on asking him out just yet cuz he might need more time to think things through. Try to hang out more often at school, like between classes and during lunch, and soon, you'll be able to tell if he's crushin' on you too. Keep in mind that a lot of great relationships start out as friendships, so there could definitely be some potential for a relationship with this guy in the future.


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 .

    So i  agree with miley15 i think you guys should all meet up and tell them they can't leave or interrupt each other untill the issue is resolved let girl 2 know that the more she askes the less girl 1 will want to be her friend , also tell girl 1 that she shouldn't just run away.  Girl 1 is trying to be friends with girl2 but  i mean they dont need to bff's but they should not make a big deal of each other.

    My parents are very lenient about chores and messing around but they are NOT lenient at all about lying, respect, homework or safety stuff.

    ahaaaa...that's sorta confusing and annoying at the same time...but don't u think if they were really your friends they would listen to u? if they are really interested in being friend with u so tell em that u cannot stand this situation anymore and ask them politely but firmly to try to understand each other...or ur friendship will be ruined...i'm sure talking always solves any problems...

    Ok here's what's going on. Girl1 (my best friend) can't stand girl2 (my other friend). And girl2 wants to be friends with girl1 but girl1 doesn't want to be friends with girl2. And girl2 keeps messaging girl1 and girl1 keeps telling her she doesn't want to be her friend. got you confused yet?  So this is what is making me write this. My best friend said that if I keep hanging around my other friend she will try to be nice. But every time those two are in the same place girl2 asks girl1 why they can't be friends and that just sets girl1 off. And then I have to stop it. I love how my best friend is willing to hang around my other friend for me but I hate how my other friend won't stop bringing up why the two of them can't be friends. No matter how much girl1 and I tell her that girl1 doesn't want to be her friend she keeps asking. I like hanging out with both of them but not at the same time and when I hang out with one and not the other they ask why and I spending more time with the other one then with them. I can't take it anymore!!!  Please help me me before I loose it,              avatar-me
