Have you ever liked someone who didn’t share your feelings? Many of us have had a crush on someone who didn’t feel the same way about us. Maybe it was a classmate, coworker, friend, or ex boyfriend/girlfriend. This is an unrequited crush/love. Unrequited love is a one-sided love or crush. Sometimes the person is aware of the persons feelings. However, sometimes the person with the romantic feelings keeps their crush to themselves for fear of rejection or feeling like they are not good enough for their crush.
Growing up, I was very shy and was so bad at talking to people, especially any guy I had a crush on. I always had a crush on someone, but before I never felt like I was good enough or pretty enough, I never talked to any of the guys that I liked. In fact, I didn’t date at all during middle school or high school. Looking back, I wish I had been more confident and maybe I could’ve enjoyed high school more.
Even now as an adult I’ve had crushed on guys who didn’t like me back. Sometimes I get over the crushes pretty quickly, other times I have trouble doing that. In fact, I even left my job to get over a crush. Luckily for me this did work for me. I no longer saw him and my feelings went away. How do you get over an unrequited crush? The best thing to do is get some distance from them. If this isn’t possible, the next best thing to do is try to think of all their flaws or why they aren’t good for you. Here are some pics I found on Pinterest that Some people can relate to. I know I related to these when I had an unrequited crush.
