Sometimes you realize you've fallen for someone but they don't like you back... What could it be? Is there something wrong with you? Of course not. There will be people in your life that don't share your feelings. What's so important about this realization? Not bringing yourself down. Don't start blaming yourself, your looks, your weight, etc. You are you. You're unique so don't start saying you aren't good enough or you're not perfect.
Perfect doesn't exist. Society sets standards that bring people down. I promise you, no matter how hopeless your love may seem, it will one day go away. There's someone in my life who I've been in love with for over a year. He is well aware and I even asked him out once. Him and I are still closer than most people in my life. He is one of my best friends and is like a brother. Yes, the feelings still exist, but having him in my life is enough for me. I didn't get mad and say that he had standards I couldn't fit. No, I simply accepted that he just doesn't share my feelings. One day the feelings will be gone altogether and I'll still have my friend. Don't let people get to you. Love isn't as easy as movies and T.V. make it seem. Don't be so hard on yourself.
Male or female, one day you WILL love someone who loves you back. For now, know that I love you without even knowing you. I promise you, you are amazing.
