At 19 I fell in love with a guy a few years older than me. He was/is everything I ever wanted but I never pursued it because I had horrible self esteem even though he did like me. But then he got a girlfriend and it was a couple of years of avoiding him and running into him and participating in activities in which I would accidentally find him. Meanwhile I would try to find someone else because he just stayed with her. They eventually married. I moved. They moved. And now they're happy. But every now and them I run across an update on FB (they have a baby now) and I do feel happy he is doing well but at the same time it still hurts. How can an unrequited crush hurt me several years later?

Unrequited Love is the worst pain ever!
I fell in love with a co-worker, and I didn't know she had a boyfriend and was heartbroken when I saw her kiss him. It took me a year to almost get over her, I tried talking to her as a friend and found out he dumped her... this is after I accepted she was with someone else and I would never have her... We still work together, it's been another year now, has been a bad rollercoaster but I haven't been thinking about her and have been focusing on other things now...
I think you need to accept he is with someone else, and delete him from Facebook... and keep your mind off him.0

Twice now. Once when I was 17 and I didn't get truly over him for about 15 years lol (oh my) and once at around 34 and I don't think I'll ever fully get over him. C'est la vie.0
