3 to 5

I have liked this guy for 3 to 5 years. He flirts with me all the time yet stood me up three times. And I still like him. Maybe I'm dumb... but I can't help it. No matter how much I pray, I can't get that boy out of my head!

I like a boy too but I doubt he knows I even exist. On the other hand I know two other boys who like me but I just can't get the courage to talk to them. Help!

Life is too short not to just go ahead and take that step forward. Go talk to them (or one of them, anyway). If you know they like you, what is the harm? Besides, even if you weren't sure they liked you (like this boy you think lacks knowledge of your existence), you should still just go talk to him. I know it is easier said than done. But, I've almost died once. I have realized just how short life is. And I'm telling you now, it is just too short to be too afraid to take a risk (and it is really such a small risk, at that). Would you rather live the rest of your life wondering what would have happened? Or just find out now? What ever you decide, I wish you the best of luck (however, I don't think you'll need it). :)

Thank u guys so much!! I have followed your advices and I feel a burden lifted off my shoulders. Even though I know my crush doesn't like me, at least we are friends now. I have gotten closer to both boys who like me. We are all friends now. Thank u all,PoeticRejection and myspip!

Naw, love is not easy. I was deeply in love with someone too, and all I wanted to do is to not think of her, but it didn't help for a long time. In any case, I finally was able to move on; this due to that I became more open. The less you think of him the more you might think of others and eventually you'll forget him. Oh, btw, it is useless to force yourself not to think of him, cause then you do it anyway, therefore you should occupy yourself with things (like being with friends) so that you automatically don't think of him :D Good luck sweetie!
