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.

    I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.

    If most people from this generation don't want to be friends with you, you are doing something right.

    Be yourself,do what you like to do and people who like the same things will/should be attracted to you. Don't take to much thought to people who want to change you so then you can be their friend. as i said before just be yourself and people will like you and want to be your friend! TRUST ME ON THIS! :D :D :D :D

    Just be open, and talk to someone. I'm sure once someone starts talking to you they're find you cool, and other people might join in. (:
