MISSED CONNECTION: To the guy who's been playing with my head for the past two years. I hope you meant it when you said that you like me. Although I can't find it in myself to say it back anymore, know that once upon a time, I really liked you too. But you never treated me right and I respect myself enough to know that I deserve someone who does. This is your last term here and I'm sad to see you go. But at the same time, I'm looking forward to finally letting go and moving on. Sad that this is a missed connection but maybe some people just aren't meant to be. I wish you all the best and know that I have no regrets.

    3. @1.b because if this is about me then I basically told my ex (that I dated for a year but that ended a year and a half ago) that I still liked her but wasn't going to do anything about it to respect her wishes. Only said this after I left waterloo for good, after a few months of being platonic friends.

  2. OP you sound like a girl I knew, though I doubt she uses this site. Still, I want to share my story, if only to vent.

    I once had this girl who I liked a lot and she seemed to like me too. So I asked her out. Numerous times...

    I'd say it takes about 3 rejections to destroy a man's confidence, and by then the right thing to do is to give up and move on.

    I was an idiot. I didn't give up. This girl wasn’t gorgeous or anything, but I admired how she was so unapologetically engrossed in her own little quirks. To the cynic in me, it seemed like she had this ability to view the ugliness in the world with a kind of informed innocence – life hasn’t always been kind to her, yet her empty glass would always be half full. She was also a massive dork, but she was happy to be herself, and that happiness was contagious. So, it was in this way that she became gorgeous to me.

    We did go out eventually, but it didn’t end well. After that, I kept myself distant, not to “play” her, but to stop myself from wasting a critical period in my life chasing a girl who didn’t feel the same way as me. I still like her, but I do think she deserves a nicer guy. My only wish is that she stays her same old dorky self.

    1. OP here, I admire your reasons for liking her. She's lucky to have had someone like you who actually cared about her. So in that way I guess I'm not like her at all. But what I've learned is that you can't force someone to love you. It doesn't matter how much you like them or willing to do for them... trying to force something that's not there never ends well. Also, I don't think you played her... you kept your distance. You didn't send her mix signals and try to get her back whenever you saw her hanging out with someone new. So in that sense, trust me when I say you are a much better person.
