What is unrequited love? Unrequited love is when he's all you think about, but to him you're just some girl that sits near him at lunch that he occasionally talks to. It's when you try your hardest too get him to notice you, but your efforts are in vain. You want to give up on this lost cause, but you can't; you have too many strong feelings for him. He's the one you can't help but trust, but the only thing he trusts you with is knowing how to solve algebra problems. Every time the two of you talk, you feel like bursting with sunshine; he's just bored and thinks, "Thank goodness she knows how to find the midpoint of a line segment." At lunch, you're so happy to be around him that you can't help but smile the whole time. All he does is chat idly with his somehow-better-than-me-for-reasons-I-don't-know friends, sharing laughs you desperately long to be shared with you. When the two of you are together, he texts his other friends. Yet, when you're not there, he never answers your messages. No matter how much your heart aches for this one person, for these few but powerful feelings to be returned, it just doesn't happen. To him, you're just some girl. Some algebra-knowing, talkative girl who will never receive what she longs to get. Not from him, anyways.
