I'm in love with my neighbour, I'm 16, he's 19, but he doesn't love me back (Well.. i pretty sure he doesn't). It's so painful, and when ever I see him, my heart stops. He isn't the best looking, but he's smart, kind, loving, and his glasses make me melt. I get so nervous around him. Have you ever felt this way? Does it get better?
Most Helpful Guy
Well, I have cared for and loved women who didn't return my affection. It's very difficult. I would have walked away, except they were in love and started relationships with friends of mine, so I couldn't walk away unless I didn't want to see my friends anymore. I decided that it didn't make any sense to lose friends, so I'm afraid I had to climb a Mt. Everest of pain to continue on in life and maintain my friendship.
I believe that it does get better when you eventually fall in love with someone else, and that day is coming, my dear. I would suggest, if possible, that you try to limit your contact with this guy as much as you can. There is some merit to the idea of "out of sight; out of mind."
Although he's a great guy, and the heart wants what the heart wants (I think it's adorable you like his glasses... I confess I like women who wear glasses), he is legally an adult and you are not. Even if he could return your love, such a relationship would pose some serious problems. Although it's difficult to see, it might be for the best.
Now the good news is that you can find another bespectacled Sir Awesome who will return your affections, sweetheart. You must make an effort to make yourself and your life as attractive as possible to invite him to be a part of it.0
