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.

    Maybe he likes you, as a friend or as more.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion

    Don't worry about it. Friends grow apart. That's how things go. Just talk to her about it, she'll understand.
