The purpose of this vlog is to hopefully teach a few people to not act like snobby jerks when they learn that someone has a crush on them.
I have unfortunately been on the receiving end of snobbery from guys who I have had a crush on. It made me feel like crap and worthless, wondering what the hell I did wrong.
Then I realised something. It isn't my problem. Many guys get off thinking that they are the top dog because they never get the opportunity to feel this way.
If you are on the recieving end of someone thinking about you, you have every right to not like them back and you have every right to not give them a chance. But here are a few tips on how you can be friendlier with the person and to be humble.
1) Think about the context of the situation.
Is there a reason to be scared of the person for you to treat them this way? Is the person stalking you? Is the person just talking about you in front of their friends and you learned of this? So bloody what? Everyone does this. It isn't like you haven't told anyone about any of your crushes.
Unless the person is stalking you, you can easily get an AVO and your behaviour is warranted. If not, just accept that they like you because they saw something awesome in you.
2) Have some self awareness.
That person probably feels like crap and confused right now because they like you. This situation is already awkward for them. No need for you to worsen the istuation by being a total a**hole to them.
3) No need to say anything unless they say something to you.
Don't go in blazing all guns saying that you don't like them that way, when there was no reason for doing so. My crush learned that I liked him and I did not ask him out at all. One day, I received a message from him saying that he did not like me that way, when I said nothing at all. What the hell? He got his wish though, I got over him immediately and he turned me off. I now think he is the most ugliest thing ever.
4) Don't roll your eyes at them and don't talk down at them.
Need I say more?
5) Try and be their friend.
Crushes don't last for very long. But friends are forever. Who knows, maybe you will marry them one day when you reciprocated their love.
6) Don't act horrible to them to the point where they won't have any self esteem anymore.
The person having a crush on you will probably have no self esteem left. That in turn, their romantic prospects are at a higher risk of heartache from them. So cut the vicious circle.
I believe you should feel flattered if someone in this large world things your sh** don't stink. If you can help it, try to avoid making people dislike you.
Overall, we are all human...bound to make mistakes. Don't let their mistake be liking someone like you if you are going to be an snobby, self entitled snob. You are not that important and as I said before, you are more than welcome to reject the person. Just be a friendly, humble person. The heart and mind changes easily and you will one day like them back... only to find that they are no longer interested in you.
