So ive liked this guy, for a while now, we were so close to going out in the summer we were just both scared to ask each other out, his friends told me that hes was too shy to ask me out and that he would say yes if i asked, but i was too scared. so then when school started, it was the first time we have seen each other in person for a while and he would always look away when i smiled at him. but he would answer my texts and have a good talk with me. then there was this point where we didnt even text because he wouldnt answer his texts. but after 2 weeks we talked. then one day i asked him "did i do something wrong you never seem to want to talk to me" and he responded with "you just move on with things i guess you know?" meaning that like i was a "past phase" and i got mad and told myself i was over him. but i just couldnt get over him.
One of my friends, she offered a while ago to text him and try to get him to ask me out, so they always talk now. he talks to her in the hallways which he would never do with me and he always texts her. everytime i said to her that i think he likes her she would respond with "no he definatly likes you" and i would always say no because he never acted like it. He then told his friends that i liked him even though i never told him, he said it was obvious, to which i responded " just because a girl texts you doesnt mean she likes you." so then we wouldnt talk. Recently, he told my friend he liked her and that he knew i liked him. she said she didnt like him and that she couldnt do that to me. So now i havent talked to him.
So the question here (if you took the time to read the story thank you) is should i move on or try to fix things?
Move on. If he wanted you, he'd say so. He doesn't want you
Wow this story sounds like an open heart surgery gone wrong. And how it did is no surprise, too many people inolved. My appologies that you have to experince this but I would honestly recommend that you move on.
You NEED to move on. There are two very important reasons you should: First, the way he has been acting towards you and towards your friend comparatively means he does not like you, and probably won't like you for who you are. To get him to like you you would have to be someone you're not. Needless to say, don't do that. Second, the way he has been acting also makes him sound like a somewhat rude idiot. If you just look at it he KNEW you like him still, yet he never took the time to just talk through it with you(like a true friend would) and eeeeeven better he STILL said he liked your friend knowing this. If a guy isn't willing to finish past business before starting new than he is being a coward. I'm sorry if I'm trashing someone you may still like, but in my opinon he probably doesn't deserve a date right now.
WOW! You got a true friend
I was in a similar situation for a long time, and I know it hurts. If he’s into your friend and not you, I’d strongly advise you to try to get over him. I know it hurts and I know it’s really hard, but you need to try because if you let this run on it will most likely hurt even more in the future. If you need ways to try to get over him, just like little tips, this is what I did. Try to work a schedule out where you won’t have to see him, because if you don’t see him the chances are you won’t think about it as much. And maybe go out and flirt with other guys, party and have fun just to get your heart off of him. No one can tell you what’s best for you, only you can do that, but what worked for me was getting over it. I really wish you the best of luck in whatever you decide J stay strong!
