my heart just won't listen to my mind
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
well, i have a friend who i've known for a while. at first, i only thought of him as a friend, but then i started to like him. i don't think he was trying to "get with" me because he wasn't flirting at all. so, it started out as a crush, then it just blossomed into something bigger. i don't want to say love, because i don't know if that's what it is/was. eventually, i told him because he wasn't getting my hints, and he was ok with it. he was still cool with me and it was like i never told him, which was a good thing. but then i asked him if he liked me and he said he didn't, and we were still pretty cool. ugh, that's when i started liking him more. it was like my heart was over-flowing with feelings for him and was about to burst. a month or two after i told him how i felt, i asked him why he didn't like me. he said, "I'm just not attracted to you." of course, i spent my night crying because my heart had finally understood that he didn't like me. it's been less than a week, and my heart's rebelling. i can't get him out of my head, i cry when i think about him. when i think about how happy i could have been. how it would have felt to be loved...but there's nothing i can do, and i don't know what to do because as much as i hate to say it, i still like him...and i cry. what can i do to let this pain go?
There are lots of suggestionss about how to deal with a "break up" (which your situation is similar to.) Take a look at:
Good luck! George
p.s. and remember it's only been a week, it will take longer for your heart to feel better.
