I'm Fairly Sure The Universe Hates Me

Venting:

I start talking to this girl, who happens to be one of the few people attending my school that is intelligent, funny, respectable, and attractive. After a little while, I develop a little crush on her. The following day (which would be today), I find that she has very, very recently begun to date her long-time friend.

So I'm thinking, "There is absolutely no way my timing can be that bad. I've had my suspicions before, but now I'm totally convinced that God/Allah/Vishnu/Karma/The Universe hate me.

    Yea, I know how you feel, sort of. Except for me it's "I'll talk to her tomorrow" and then after however long I don't say anything, she ends up getting a boyfriend.

    No, that's different. You procrastinate. I have the living consciousness consisting of the total of all matter in an infinite region of space concentrating on me with pure malice.

    I wouldn't call it procrastonation, but rather fear of rejection/embarassment, but yea, too bad for you. You could still become friends with her and make the move if/when she breaks up with this guy...

    Let me give a review of my "girl issues."

    The first crush I had I identified as impossible, thus ignoring all of HER advances. I was young then, and didn't recognize these till later. By then she had a boyfriend. She broke up, and I thought i'd give her a little time to recover. Then she got another boyfriend and they've been together since.

    Another girl I liked also actually talked to me (a big plus among all the girls i've seen.) I convinced myself to talk to her as soon as the next school year started (it was summer then.) Over the summer she got a boyfriend who she still has, and his mother won the lottery. Talking to her lady friends later I learned that I did infact have a chance.

    Another two girls were on my bus. I got to be friends with one of them, and was going to ask her to my senior prom. I was sitting with her outside during a study hall and was shaking because I hadn't done anything like this before. Just when I was going to ask her, some arsehat and his friend pressured her into going with him. I was reading 1984 at that exact moment, too.

    Another girl I never really knew about. I finally learned from one of her friends that she was lonely, I liked her because she was quiet and really cool. She got a boyfriend a few weeks later, got dumped terribly a week after that, and I let her recover a bit because she was really distraught. I figured I'd ask her to prom (my fallback from the one I explained before.) I asked her friend if she was going, and her friend informed me that she started dating someone about a week before. I'm now good friends with her, and found she has a ton in common with me.


    You want timing? Think the universe hates you? It's just normal teen years. It'll get better.

    Well, comparitevly, yeah. I mean, I could be living in fear of being car-bombed if I lived in Israel...

    Although its not really comforting to know that no matter how bad things seem, someone else always has it worse.

    And this wasn't really a "Now-I'm-So-Depressed" event, it was more like a "You've-Got-To-Be-Kidding-Me" event with a bit of "Well... Crap." thrown on.

    Uh oh, reality check!

    First of all, I'm assuming this is high school, since the average age of the internet is probably around that. Whatever.

    Who cares.

    High school relationships not only mean NOTHING, but nothing will almost ever come out of them. Not only are hormones raging at this time and your 'crush' is fantasy, but should you get in a relationship, you'll most likely fight, break up, cry, get depressed, mope around, and make a big deal about it. High School relationships are trash. You'll probably go to college and never see her again anyway. Or you won't go off to college, and run off together and live a miserable poverty-level life.

    Unless you're in it for the sex. In which case I'll point out that dating is probably a lot more expensive.


    If this ISN'T in high school... you need to go to a bigger college biggrin-fix.gif

    Although it doesn't really matter (it is, indeed, High school), consider this:

    Dude, same problem, it seems like once you find someone you really, really feel like your in "love" with, that you just cant muster up the courage to talk to them, because of fear of loosing them forever as a friend or something more. I'd liked this person since sixth grade, starting then, now to ninth, and the end of the summer I found out she has a boyfriend. Its pretty damn heart breaking when you walk in the hall then see them holding hands and hugging and everything, just out of nowhere it hits you, and your chance goes down the drain. You feel like nothings left.. *sigh*

    This is to anyone out there. Just muster up the courage and SAY something, ANYTHING, and see if the feelings are mutuial. I doubt they'd leave you for something like that as a friendship, that'd be totally childish, and if they do they werent for you in the first place.

    Myself, I'm still waiting for a chance to open up, and probably will confront her soon.. hopefully. I can only wish the best for her... sad-fix.gif

    I'll add my sob story here too, anything to get out of studying Calc 3

    There is this this girl I really like and I'd like to think we were at least decent friends but I was always afraid to tell her that I liked her so I just let it bottle up inside me for about a year. Finally decided to tell her but I didn't think I'd just be able to tell her in person so I wrote a long EMail and told her how I felt. Unfortuantly she doesn't have the same feelings for me and just wants to continue to be friends. Intrestingly enough though, I actually didn't feel too upset about it, I didn't have that bottling up inside me anymore so I'm actually kinda cool with it even though I'd rather have a girl friend. Funny thing though she hasn't really talked to me much since I wrote her that EMail. *shrugs*

    BTW, great song I Think I Love You by David Cassidy. It kinda summed up my feelings. Same with Every Little Thing She Does by Sting and the Police

    You think that's bad? What's really terrible is to have a girl lead you on, only to detonate your hopes and dreams with a ton of TNT once you finally try to make your move. In school im no nerd or geek, this is just something I do as a hobby, and i've had my share of girls...but for the most part avoid all high school relationships for the time being. Anyway, on to my point, I've had girls who have led me definatly to believe that they were interested in me (i.e making constant references to a relationship, being touchy feely, really opening up, showing what appears to be geniune interest) and then in the end you find out they only want to be 'friends.'

    rofl.

    Hey man, this happens to everybody. No matter who you are. At least you can find girls that you actually like. At my school, of almost 4000, I cannot find a single girl my age that I like. They're all too fake, too stupid, or too ugly. It's so annoying. I've tried dating a year up, and a year down, I seem to have more success with that. I've dated only ONE girl my age, not even from my school. She was bi-polar (read: psychotic). For future reference:

    DO NOT DATE BI-POLAR GIRLS.

    Oh, and for those who can't muster up the courage, grow a pair, and go talk to her. At least you'll be semi-sure of the outcome (never can tell with women). Plus, you'll be glad you did, even if she says no.
