Original Visitor's Question from a 13-20 year old Female
I really fancy this guy at school but he is also a really good friend and I don't want to tell him I like him in case it ruins our friendship and to make matters worse we've been really close this week and he confided to me that he fancies one of my friends.I can't tell him now because I know he will not fancy me back but it's driving me crazy, what should I do?
User Submitted Advice from a 13-20 year old Male
Like someone else
Hmm.... When I think girls like me, and I don't like them, I let them be my friends (to see if she's really not that good) but, after a few days, or whenever it looks like I could trust them, I tell them who I really like, hopefully to turn them from asking me out.
Because I don't want them to feel rejected when I say, "nah, too busy." and then I appear in msn.... (Once I did this to a girl, a long time ago. And after she was rejected, she still had to perform an act on the concert, and she kinda collaspsed, went crying, and I felt like it was all my fault, even thought I really, really didnt like her.)
So when a guy tells you they like someone else, there maybe another purpose...
