I Think I Am Single

I recently find myself falling for someone who may not feel the same way about me.  Okay, I am 26 and I have a crush, like when I was in high school, which seems like a strange phenomenon because those butterflies haven't come for a while. 

As I find myself falling for someone new, this may also be the first time I have encountered [possible] rejection just when I start to fall hard.  Feelings do funny things in that you can never predict what, who, or why you feel the way you do. 

In the last couple of months, I reconnected with someone who makes me laugh and just seeing his name on a new e-mail makes me smile.  I think everything he does is amazing.  I do cherish having found someone who makes me queasy again, but I cannot tell if he cares about me the same way I care about him.  I clearly don't have the upper hand in this relationship, if I can even call it that. 

How many of you have fallen for someone who just didn't return your love?

i am going through the same thing right now, except i am in highschool. our parents want us to be together, and we are very good friends, but what he doesnt know is that i am completely in love with him, and its to a point where it makes me cry sometimes.

I think some of the magic lies in not knowing...bask in it :)

The odd part is, if you don't try you don't know. But when you do either it does work out or you get hurt. And that sucks. So what do you do?<br />

Wish I had an answer, but I certainly don't.
