I think most of us have been down this road where we become close to someone - We get feelings for them but they just want to be friends - Okay I know how you feel about compliments so I will say that I see no reason why your looks or personality may prevent anything from happening. You are 18 very young and I think you said you are about to go into art college. It is a cliché but it is true, you may just have not met the right person yet, In art college or in an artistic career, you may meet more people on your wavelength so eventually should click with someone on all the levels you wish to. Do not dwell on past episodes where you felt things have gone wrong but look to the future where you would meet someone who appreciates your looks and clicks with your creative personality. Again I say at 18 it seems so daunting but there is so much of your life ahead of you, I honestly think you have very little to worry about. 4.bp.blogspot.com/.../...ou+Wait+For+Something.jpg www.bestsayingsquotes.com/.../...es-6-078ac658.jpg
When i do this to a girl ( not that i've done it a lot or often ) its because :
1- she is not as attractive as i wish a girlfriend of mine to be and i can't see myself having anything long term with her so i dont want to hurt her.
2- she doesn't sound like good girlfriend material , this could be due to a lot of things but mainly if she doesn't look or feel feminine or is really shallow/dumb , can't be trusted and will probably hurt me somehow or cheat then i avoid having a realtionship with her.
3- I just happen to have better options , simply put.
you are pretty and you seem to have a nice body so i dont think looks are problem ( maybe that nose ring is not exactly making you look like girlfriend material for some guys?) , i know nothing of your personality but maybe you have some traits that guys dont find really... feminine or makes them unsure if they should trust you or not , and of course there is always the you're just unlucky and they happen to stumble upon a prettier, smarter, depeer, cooler and overall better girl ( highly doubt it though , as a guy finding quality girls is not easy )
You are second place because you allow yourself to be standing there waiting and of course - you are ok... but she is better.
Cool, the second that asshole does that.. or thinks like that.. walk the fuck away. it doesn't work out with the other girl, she blows him off - he thinks he can come back and talk - fuck off - you ain't coming back, im gone forever
be polite, be nice - but that is a absolute end of a phase when someone puts you on second list
I dunno... I wonder this myself when I was 16! Eh... I don't try anymore. I'll flirt for like um 3 seconds and thats that! I never get to close to anyone... hahah I don't have that problem just avoid guys at all cost simply because now in day relationship aren't really worth it. Hey look at the bright side you can be awesome like me and join the single for life club!
I know the feels. :/ It happens to me every time, but I don't care anymore. The right guy is going to show up someday. If someone doesn't choose me, then I move on. That's all I can do. Just be you and someone will see that you are special and deserve to be #1. :)
Oh wow, do we share the same life? I would answer but i am forever #2 as well. And just to make it all the better, the people who choose someone else over me ALWAYS come back down the line and wonder why I am no longer interested.
