Was it inconsiderate of acquaintance to confess his crush?

  • I feel as though you handled it the appropriate way, but I don't think he was being inconsiderate. Men can be a little dense, and he was probably hoping that if he told you how he felt you would change your mind about a relationship. I don't think I can fault either one of you, if that makes sense. He has the right to admit how he feels, just as you have the right to turn him down. Sometimes getting something like that off your chest is necessary to starting a friendship.

    I have a friend that I liked a lot, admitted it to him, he said he didn't like me that way, I was silently devastated for a bit, but I wasn't shy around him anymore, got to know him better, and realized that although we are great friends we would have been terrible in a relationship together.

    • Thanks for BA! Hope you guys are doing ok

    • No probs! We're as friendly as ever...and I think I'm starting to fall for him.

      Well, we'll see what happens.

    • Best of luck :)
