I’m only 14 so this isn’t too big of a deal… I admitted to liking him at the football homecoming game to myself back in October, I thought it was going to be just another one of my silly crushes that last a few months. But here I am in February still thinking about him day and night. I’ve only talked to him in real life a few times in gym class if I’m on his team for a sport,other than that nothing. But last month I texted him how I felt and surprisingly he was super chill about it he wrote a long paragraph about how I’m great but he likes someone else and he said he’s proud that I told him because most girls wouldn’t have the guts! But after that conversation, In school we just have awkward eye contact and we always end up bumping into each other. There’s nothing special about him, he’s such a loser but for some reason I’m so hung up on him. I want to be his friend since at least, he’s a pretty funny guy and his music taste is great too… Should I text him or talk to him in gym?
Since a romantic relationship is out of the question, it would probably be best to just leave this young man be for the time being. Your interest in him is romantic, and he is romantically engaged with someone else, so the only thing you can do is take a slow, deep breath and keep going about your day.
You're free to ask about him from time to time. If he doesn't work out with his current girlfriend, you're always free to ask him out again later. (:
