Today on Dear Dish-It’s, “Let’s Talk About it Tuesday” we are going to be looking at questions from specifically girl kids and teens who are dealing with boy issues. It’s no question that women develop and mature faster than boys. Girls tend to know what they want and aren’t up for playing games. It can be so hard at this age just trying to figure the opposite sex out. At this age everything is fragile, especially our feelings and we have to look out for those. No matter what boy problem you are facing, taking care of yourself is number one.

Let’s Take a Look at This Week’s Questions:

It's frustrating when we don't know if a guy likes us back.It's frustrating when we don't know if a guy likes us back.

Question by rose2007

How do I tell if he likes me?


There are a lot of ways to tell if he likes you. For starters, does he pay a lot of attention to you? Does he go out of his way to talk to you? Try to make you feel special? You have to ask yourself what it is that is making you wonder this, is it something he did? Or do you just like him and hope he likes you back? Generally, unless really shy or unready, a guy will pay attention to a girl he is interested in. He will flirt and be nice to you and make you know for certain that you are liked by him. You can be forward and just find out or you can wait and see and see how it turns out. Maybe try talking to him and see if he shows any interest.

Question by Misunderstood15

How do I tell if this boy I'm talking to likes me back. My real question is What signs should I notice if a boy likes me back?


This question is similar to the one above so I suggest you read that question along with my reply. Signs are usually easy to spot because if a guy is confident enough to like you, he will pay you attention. He will try to get to know you or start talking to you a lot. If a guy is constantly ignoring you and not replying to messages, take that as a sign to move on. If you say you are already talking to him, why not take a step back and see if he starts a conversation first. It will test his interest level and maybe show you that this flirtation isn’t all in your head.

If you can't face him, you can always try texting. If you can't face him, you can always try texting.

Question by yefy

Dear Dish-It, if you are famous and, you have a secret relationship with a famous boy does that means it is a secret because the boy has another girl or is best to keep it secret because of the fans?


I really want to answer your question but I am not sure what you are asking me exactly. In my experience, secrets are secrets for a reason. That reason generally being that they can hurt people. I would assume a famous person having a secret affair wouldn’t want to hurt their partner or their fans. Though, Dear-Dish-It is a strong believer that the truth always comes out.

Question by key

Why [are boys] strange sometimes?


I imagine boys wonder the same thing about girls. This “strangeness” comes from difference, boys and girls are opposite sexes. They will not always see eye-to-eye, want the same things or express similar interests. To be honest, I don’t know what your definition of strange is, but to me, it represents the unfamiliar. Get to know the things you find strange, it might help you understand boys better. Remember, boys, get better with age so you have to be patient with them. Don’t have high expectations, but be open minded to their differences. Understand there are things about you that likely don’t make sense to boys. At the end of the day, everyone has to be themselves and everyone wants to be loved for who they are. I am sure that beneath that “strange” there are great things so don’t cast people off too quickly. Give people a chance and who knows you might even start to like what you thought was strange in the first place.

Rejection is a part of the dating game, but it makes you stronger.Rejection is a part of the dating game, but it makes you stronger.


Dating at this age is never easy. We find ourselves feeling very uncertain as we ponder, “does he like me back?” I know a girl who wasn’t afraid to just ask these boys if they liked her. Rejection is a big part of life and something we all have to deal with, but the more you face it the easier it gets.

Have confidence in yourself. Don’t be afraid to go after things. You truly have nothing to lose.

Every guy is different, but my rule of thumb is that if a guy is interested in you, he shows. He pays attention to you, he goes out of his way to talk to you or hang out with you. Boy can be shy and sometimes may need you to take the lead but remember this is all new to them and it can be quite scary. Take your time. There is no rush. In time, it will all make sense as you laugh at the people you used to like, and focus on the person who likes you back.

Not everyone you like will like you back.Not everyone you like will like you back.
