Dear Dish-It, I Like This Boy, But Other Girls Like Him Too

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

Dear Dish-It,

There is this really cute boy in my class and I like him (he has no idea I like him), but there are these three girls in my class who are my friends and they like him too (they don't know I like him either). They get jealous when he hangs out with me and they sometimes make fun of me. They seem to follow him wherever he goes and he hangs out with them more than he does with me. Then suddenly he stopped talking to me, but I saw him writing my name on the back of his notebook and on the back of his chair, and he stares at me a lot. What should I do with my friends? Do you think that he likes me?

Dear Shygrl,

He talks to you and then he doesn't talk to you... sounds like your boy is confused. But take heart cuz that's a good sign! If this guy didn't like you, he wouldn't be acting as crazed as Britney Spears! Obviously the guy likes you - he's writing your name on his books! The bigger issue here is, do you wanna hook up with some weak-kneed boy who disses you and his feelings for you just cuz he can't handle the peer pressure? Speaking of which, are these girls really your friends or just some school peeps? Cuz girl, with friends like that... you'd do better to stay home and party with your parents! My guess is there are lots of good quality guys just around the corner... so keep on lookin'.

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 .

    Would You Tell a Crush?

    • I'd just tell 'em they're da bomb.
    • I'd send them a note during class.
    • No way I'd tell a crush anything... that's too harsh.
    • I'd get my friend to tell their friend.

    Tbh, your mom is kinda, you know, right about it. I mean, net is not as safe as we think it is. All I can tell you is that don't talk about her in front of your mom and don't give your friend any personal details about you.

    I am sorry for what you are going through. I feel that it is time for you to find new friends - true friends. Try finding friends with same interests as you. You'll have more things to talk about that way. I hope things get better with you and your friends.

    I'm 12 years old, and for some reason I'm always sad. I got a gold medal in my gym, and I just started crying, but I wasn't crying because I was happy. I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated.

    I'm hoping to get my ears pierced, though I don't have the time or money to do it at the moment. Hopefully soon, though.
