Anonymous asked: How do you handle having a massive crush on a guy who you are friends with, but is taken?
I’ve been in this situation a few times and each time, it’s been terrible. Unrequited love is so painful because you’re not trying to get over an actual person, you’re trying to forget an idea you created. I deal with crushes by writing a ton of poetry and trying to remind myself of the reality of the situation. While a person may be great, sometimes it’s just better to stay friends with them and not string yourself out hoping that they’ll someday see you a different way.
