We’ve all heard it and it’s usually perceived as something’s negative. But why? I don’t get it. Maybe it’s the pain of emotionally investing in someone to only have those investments unrequited. It hurts, it really does but at the same time, what was it about them made you believe that he/she’s absolutely meant for you? A lot of the time guys build an image of a girl in their head that even the girl can’t live up too. I understand that as humans, we are creatures who seek companionship, but just because a girl plays video games or watches the same TV shows you do, doesn’t necessarily mean that you guys are meant to be together. If you like someone just because they like some of the things you do then you’re narrowing your love to those selected similarities and not them in their entirety.
I think its a privilege enough for another human being to be so comfortable and safe with you that they trust you with their inner thoughts and feelings. Don’t get me wrong, in the chance that the feelings are mutual then thats the most amazing feeling in the world. But compromising that trust is more devastating than having your feelings unrequited.
I’m an odd ball, I know, but hey if you can stand my quirky awkwardness then be my friend and I’ll promise not to touch your butt, unless you want me too. :)
