Dear Dish-It, He Acts Like He Likes Me, Then He Doesn't

Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl when I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

There's this one boy who sits next to me in math. I always catch him looking at me and we always happen to flirt a lot. He always does stuff to get me mad (stuff like poking me, taking my backpack, etc.). Every time he does this, I always go chasing after him. When I ask him why he loves to get me mad, he says that he likes when I chase him and he TOTALLY acts like he likes me. But that's only in fifth period. As soon as we get into sixth period, he doesn't even look at me! What should I do?

Dear LATiN_GURL,

Boys are strange, huh? Sometimes, they do mean stuff to show you they like you, like poking ya or trippin' ya in the hallways. And a lot of times, they'll just ignore you, either cuz they're nervous and don't know what to say to you or they're tryin' to act cool in front of their pals by acting like you don't exist. That's what your boy seems to be doing when he flirts with you in fifth period, but doesn't look your way in sixth. Or, maybe your sixth period class is a tough class for him and he needs to concentrate on what the teacher is saying rather than chase you around the room. Try talking to him and seeing what the deal is cuz he could have a really good reason for his actions. But if he keeps up his shady behavior, he's not worthy of your time or your love. A guy who can't let on that he digs ya in public isn't ready for a relationship.

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 here. But 'member, if ya hang out in Chat with other Kidzworld members who know ya by your 'username', ya might wanna use a secret nickname when ya write in. That way no one'll ever know it's you. And, just in case ya don't know, Dish-It gets a lotta letters everyday, and she can't answer 'em all. So keep checkin' the column cuz she's prob'ly answerin' somethin' very similar to your question while you're out doin' somethin' else. K? And Thanks! Ya keep her outta trouble. Oh! And if ya've got words of wisdom you wanna share,We'll dish 'em up, too.

How Do You Win Over a Crush?

  • I get my friends to say great things about me when they're around.

I hope you don't mind that I moved this to friends, but I thought it'd be more fitting since your question seems mainly friendship based. :) Do you mind being younger than your classmates? Do you feel it inhibits your school experience? I think you should do what feels best to you, whether that be staying behind because friendship has a big impact, or continuing ahead if you prioritize academic growth. Only you know what's right for you. :p If it's any help, I left high school early and went to college. I was already used to being the youngest in my class so it wasn't a huge jump socially, and I found a lot of friends of all ages. :D With that being said, I do still miss being with people my age but it's too late to go back and I wouldn't trade my experience for the world.

I'm 13 and will be going on to 9th grade. I skipped kindergarted  :p and 5th grade. So I'm a lot younger then most of my classmates will be. I'm thinking of repeating 8th grade so I will be more of the same age as the other people in my class. But I'm not sure if I should because I got a B+ or A- average in 8th grade. I need some advice on this. Sorry if this is the wrong section for this I just thought general was the right place. Thanks!  :D

I'm a 12 year old girl with really strict parents! I do chores( even handling BLEACH sometimes) , I take care of my little brother, I'm in top set for all my classes- even on the gifted and talented register and I've only ever had 1 detention- and that was their fault anyway bc I was late( they drive). But, I'm still NEVER allowed out with my friends! My friends are all in top sets as well, are well behaved and all we literally would do is window shopping. I mean, there are my age smoking shisha and doing #####- they should be lucky I'm not a delinquent! But my parents always say I can't hang out. Not because they're worried about my safety, they just dont want me to go out.! Even sleepovers, my parents always say no because they ' haven't met the parents" but they make NO effort to do so. I'm losing out on knowing my friends better and whilst they're all making best friends, at school I'm just the person in the background- the left out friend. It hurts and most of the time I wish I was fostered or something. How can I make them loosen up? ( don't say anything about sneaking out because I chose life)
