We’ve all liked a friend who hasn’t like us back.
Let’s call it, Unreaqquited Affection.
The RomComs tell us that our friend will eventually fall for us. They’ll see us for us and not care about our flaws.
But, as usual, they’re wrong.
There is no fairytale ending.
You aren’t good enough.
You aren’t smart enough.
You aren’t pretty enough.
You aren’t thin enough.
You aren’t funny enough.
You aren’t their type.
In fact, they’re just not that into you.
You can change your hair and clothes and glasses and work like crazy to change your body, be interested in the things they like, but it won’t change the fact that they don’t care about you.
It doesn’t matter how perfect it seems.
You realize that you aren’t actually friends after all.
It’s mostly just you, hoping for a chance to be in their presence.
You can’t make them like you.
You just dig yourself deeper in the whole of loneliness.
If you back off, you wont feel rejected.
You’ll only feel numb. Wondering why they can’t see in you what you see in them.
