Dear Dish-It, Is This a Fluke or Is It for Real?

Advice About Dating

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


Dear Dish-It,

I think I like this boy, but he's in grade 11 and I'm in grade 8. The reason why I think we'd be great together is that I did a test and with him I got 89 percent. But I'm wondering is this just a fluke with my emotions or is it for real? Cuz I don't know if he would be interested in me as I'm only 12 and he's going to be 16 soon. All my friends think it's weird that we don't go out as we are so alike. One time, we both watched an episode of The Simpsons and both recited most of it off at the same time and everyone thought it was creepy. So please give me a push in the right direction.
Stephie


Dear Stephie,

It's totally sweet to find someone you click with so well - someone who likes the same stuff as you and who has the same sense of humor, but tests don't mean squat. Sure, they're fun to take when you're sitting around and dishin' with your girls on a Saturday night, but they hardly make for true love. You gotta keep these sorta dating quizzes in perspective - they're goop... fun goop, but goop all the same.


The second - and bigger - issue is your age difference. In another time and place, this boy might be really interested in you, but four years is a big age gap when you're 12 and he's 16. As you get older, age becomes less important, but for now it's a big deal so stick to being friends. As you get to know each other better and bond more over your love for The Simpsons, the friendship might one day grow into something more! Good luck.


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
