Dear Dish-It, I Really Like My Teacher


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


Dear Dish-It,

I am 14 and I really like my teacher who is 26. We have gone on some school trips and on both trips, he was VERY protective of me and watching out for me. Even other kids picked up on this. My teacher talked to my dad and told him I was a special student. He picks on me jokingly in class a lot too. How can I act towards him to show that I like him too? I know he doesn't LIKE me, LIKE me, but how should I act back to him so he keeps on doing what he is doing? I'm not doing much of anything now. I just smile and listen to him and don't act like a pain in the butt. I want to do more now, but I don't know what. Can you please tell me your ideas?

Dear AngelCC100,

Here's my advice - keep it to yourself and don't do anything. It's okay to crush on someone, even a teacher cuz they are people too. But it's NOT at all okay for something romantic to happen between you and the teach. First off, he's way too old for ya - according to your email, you're 12 years apart and that's a gigantic gap. Also, he's your teacher! That means it's wrong on a billion moral levels too. If you like the attention he's giving ya and you think he's a hottie, it's fine, but don't go flirting with him and turning it into some bad movie-of-the-week, tabloid thing. I suggest taking the time this summer to crush on a boy your own age.


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 .

    I don't have ADHD, but I know plenty about it. One of my friends has ADHD and Tourette's, and the teachers were always turds about it. Anyway, i think that a good way to deal with ADHD acting up is either changing medication or trying to eat foods or drinks with caffeine. I'm not sure if it works for you, but a lot of people with ADHD have seen significant improvements after putting caffeine in their systems. If your friends are acting like turds, you need better friends. I hope my advice helps.

    Well, if they are your BFFs, they shouldn't be teasing you to make you feel bad. Me, and my BFFs tease each other all the time playfully, but I understand that this is different, and if it's making you feel bad it isn't playful at all.   Maybe your eldest friend is having some trouble with family issues, bad grades, body changes, etc. It's okay to be angry, so maybe you should leave her space for a few days, and see if it turns better. If it isn't, then try to first make her calm down. Then, make her talk to you about why she is so angry and ask if you can try to help. If nothing turns out better, tell her that you feel uncomfortable, and you want her to talk to you.  For your 3rd eldest friend, support her as much as possible, and stand up for her in this terrible situation. If you are all BFFs, then you should all be very close and comfortable around each other, and the fight shouldn't last long. If not, they are not your real friends, and you have to go on without them. I have tons of advice on how to make new friends, so just ask me if you want to know. Your 2nd eldest friend seems to be the main problem.  First of all, tell her to stop, and say how you don't like her bullying you. You must say what she is doing wrong, and how it makes you feel. If she doesn't care, tell her you're serious, and you hate what she is doing to you. If it continues, ignore what trash she is saying, and just simply walk away. Focus on other things that will help make you feel better. Remember, all she is is a person, and it's up to you to act appropriately.  Stay positive, and calm. Focus on other things, and if she continues, tell her that you can all be friends and you miss her. Go get another friend to stand up with you, and tell her that you will report to an adult if she won't stop. She may be your friend, but she deserves it. I told on my BFF when she was mean, so it's all okay now.  If all else fails, get a trusted adult, and hang out with nicer friends. Your other friends will learn from their mistakes. If not, warn them, and give them a sincere kindness note of how you miss being friends. Then, also give one to the bully.

    Yeah, @CyclonicBass the best option really is to find a girl with a quirky personality. Become friends with her. Possibly, over time, she'll grow close to you and accept a request to be with you. Hope it goes well!
