My Convoluted Love Life
3 years ago · · The story of my stressfu...
I've really liked this guy (Jayden) for a while and I finally told one of my friends, Thanah. She is also friends with him, and immediately began badgering both of us and trying to convince him to ask me out. I pretended to be annoyed so as not to show him my true interest. Two months later, my other friend, Sophia revealed to him that she really liked him and they became a couple. Their relationship was short lived but they remained friends after the breakup. Only a month later, I was at a movie with a group of people my age and Jayden and a friend (Aero) came and sat behind me in the middle of the show. Jayden got my attention and said something, which sounded like "You should go out with Aero."
I turned around and ignored both of them because I though he was messing with me. After the movie ended, one of my other friends came up to me and asked if Jayden had asked me out. At this point I realized what had happened and felt really bad because he had asked me out and I had just turned around and ignored him. I later hypothesized and was able to confirm that it was a dare suggested by one of his friends (many of them also want us to date), but Thanah (the one who confirmed my suspicion) also said that Jayden had told her that he wanted to do the dare. I have since looked back upon the event and realized that none of the boys I know would actually ask someone out in person.
Now every time I see him, I become nervous. I think he probably doesn't care what happens any more because he basically ignores me, which hurts. I really like him, but I am too shy to tell him that. The only way I would ever say anything to him would be if he asked me out again, which won't happen, because he thinks that I don't like him because I never said anything in the first place, when he asked me out on a dare.
I don't know what to do and if Jayden doesn't already hate me, he will simply begin to fully ignore me and I'll never have a chance with him.
Please leave a suggestion. I really need help deciding what to do and I'm really nervous. This won't end well for me and I'll just have my heart broken again like when he was dating my friend Sophia and I had to be happy and supportive to her.
