Everyone is afraid of rejection. It's a normal reaction in life. No one wants someone to tell them No, it's a crushing blow. The trick is to become like a duck and let it roll off your back like water and not let it bother you.
Forget about the girl with a boyfriend. That is a sure place for rejection, and you don't need to get in a mess like that.
Focus on this other girl you like. Get to know her again. Get to be her friend and hang out with her just as friends. Then see about taking it to the next level if you both feel it's right. We have a bunch of tips on how to go from friend to more-than-friend. Stop by and read them here:
