Who here loves someone but can't be with them and why?
I say the only reason you can’t be with someone is when they are in a committed relationship or not alive. Everything else you can solve. You love them, be friendly with them, spend more time and it’ll go from there
Why can’t you be with them OP?
^ or they have a habit of calling you names and shaming you for the dumbest things. Or they are super controlling down to the smallest details.
Someone's deep insecurity can make them impossible to be with even though you love them and have tried to help them.
because they are in a very committed relationship. so much so he gave her a promise ring. i respect their love so much i made choice to never fall in love with him, even though he is a beautiful person.
He’s happily married- and I’d never mess with that. (As if I could- HA. He and his perfect wife are waaaay out of my league anyway).
...But I can’t help it; I am in Love with him so...😔
Except my crush is a....she.
A person I like very much is my coworker
I love someone very much but they are already talking to someone but it’s not serious. I’ve never been the type to come between relationships though. I really just want to tell him how I feel especially after Saturday night. I didn’t want the night to end
I don’t have the guts to show him I am interested. I am such a weenie.
He’s moving away. FAR.
taken, engaged, or married
or on a pixelated screen
or a book
or a very good game...
we’re basically in different worlds. he’s so far both in location and life. im just here admiring him. miss him
He was my crush for many many years but I had zero confidence when I was younger so I never had the guts to approach him. Now we are both in relationships but he is still on my mind.. A lot.
I cant tell them how i feel, nor can they tell me. Even though it was written all over their face.
I've known him my whole life pretty much. He's bestfriends with a guy I use to have a "huge" crush on. My old crush is married and moved on. But I don't want him to have the stigma of dating "someone's old flame". Plus, I'm known to that group as "J's girl." I don't want him to lose his friends that he's had forever. We also are a little different but I believe we have a connection. I don't know whether he's in a committed relationship. The girl, I saw him last week didn't give me girlfriend vibes. Plus, he was staring at me.
He was my bestfriend's exboyfriend. So, yea... Even though it was about half a decade ago..
He has anxiety and is sometimes to scared to go outside. I'm starting university next year. My parents are very Christian and might accept him. We've loved each other since we were 13 but I always get scared when he asks
why we can't just date each other. I don't want to start something that will halt his progress with his anxiety further.
*my parents might not accept him
We just met online but... I really want to see him in person. 😭
my new bestfriends ex, and they are planning on getting back together.
She loves someone else - someone who loves her, too. And even if she didn't, we would never last.
Are they together? If not shoot your shot
because it will have to take a goddamn miracle for it to ever happen. the earth would crack apart and me fall in between before we could ever happen
Never say never! Everything is possible in this world!
He lives seven hours away from me...
She’s in Mauritius and I’m in New York. We met online and fell in love. Sad how distance can divide us
9/10 times my crushes are not a matching sexual orientation to me.
Mine is married and doesn't know I exist
He has someone in his life that is determined to make him miserable for the rest of his life. They are not a couple but they are co-parents. It's not that I wasn't willing to try, but he didn't want to drag me into that drama. He was being pulled in too many directions trying to make it work with me and still be there for his kids. I let go for his sake, tho, not mine
Because he is fine with being only an ex... 💔
Sorry. When you get older you'll understand how damaging that stuff can be.
Hope you get free soon.
He was my best friend in HS. I had a crush on him but he was dating some toxic girl who didn’t go to our school. She cheated on him and had a baby. He was depressed. Eventually he caught feelings for me but our friendship progressed to where he was my only support system. My family was a mess, I was being molested/raped by a family friend. I had no one but him. He made it all better. Every damn time. Every damn thing. Better, whenever he came around. I was afraid to take that step. One day he kissed me, I swear my heart exploded. He told me he’d do whatever it took to make me his, that’d he’d never dream of screwing it up. But I was still hesitant.. we stayed good friends. He helped me through everything through out the years outside of HS. He made me stronger.
Until a few years down the line I text him, Hey big trouble maker. (He always called me little trouble maker.) the response I got was not what I expected. He wrote back stop texting me I have a girlfriend. I said when was that ever a problem? I have a boyfriend. They responded with I don’t give a ___ stop texting me. It was Ms.Toxic. She’s threatened by me and our closeness. Turns out she was pregnant by him... gave him an ultimatum. She wanted him to cut me off. To cut everyone off, which he did. I don’t blame him. He ended up dropping out of HS and cutting us all off and having a son with her. Blocking me and everyone else on everything.
I regret not taking that step. Every year on his birthday I send him a message from one of my friends FB accounts, reminding him that all of his friends miss him and how much he is loved and as always a happy birthday. I still go to the same coffee shop right around the corner from his house hoping I’d run into him. But I don’t.
It’s been 10 years.
I still dream of you.
I still love you.
But it’s my time to let go.
See you on the other side Big Trouble Maker.
He only see me as a friend, nothing more, nothing less. How can i unlove him? Help
Dear Little Trouble maker,
I hope he finds your letters and I hope he find them soon. Maybe he’ll leave he because that all together is mean and controlling.
we are thousands of miles away from each other currently
Your response made me cry. Sadly I don’t think he’ll ever see them..
It’s heart breaking but it’s reality...
Thank you for your kind words.
Little trouble maker
Because I let him go. Because it’s been 25 years. Because sometimes loyalty and stability are more important than anything else you might do when you realise your husband just isn’t wired to love you like you were once loved. But it’s ok. I know I can make this work.
He’s married with kids. Impossible is not enough to describe it.
Thank you for your insight Captain Obvious.
