I feel alone because a guy I love doesn't love me and it feels like I have no one. I have friends but the fact that I can't have this one person who Ive loved for so long overpoweres them. I've liked /loved him for a year.
Thank you for contacting Asking Jude! I completely understand how you are feeling right now. In a perfect world, your feelings for your crush would be reciprocated, but life isn’t a fairytale. It’s normal to feel crushed in a situation like this. It’s easy to think that there is something wrong with you when facing rejection, but it may have nothing to do with you at all. Maybe the other person is not looking to be in a relationship right now or have something else to focus on.
Take some time to take care of yourself while you work through the disappointment. Try sharing how you feel with your friends or family as it can really help you feel relieved. They can even help you move on and not feel stuck. You can also look for healthy ways to keep busy. Volunteering in your community or trying new hobbies, like painting or writing, are a great way to get your mind distracted. Staying active, hanging out with friends, and meeting new people can help you feel better and move on.
Everyone goes through this experience at least once in their lives. Remember that you will survive the fact that your crush doesn’t like you back. We all want to be in healthy relationships with people who enjoy all that we are in the end. Even if this person is not a good fit, it doesn’t mean you won’t find someone else who is, and that person can come around when you least expect it. Below are some links that will help you and provide you with more detailed information
Hope this helps,
