I really, really hate liking a guy.
Actually, you know what, it’s not just liking someone that I hate, it’s the agonizing pain the comes with it. Sure, there are those wonderful butterflies that I can’t help but love, but there is also the pain of not telling anyone. The pain of being so afraid to say how you feel, to risk putting your heart on the line only to have it shattered into a million pieces.
So you don’t say anything. You remain calm around him (or her), you pretend that his random joke are what’s making you smile, you lie and say “nothing” when he/she asks you what’s on your mind, you don’t tell him/her exactly what you feel…
But what happens then?? What happens if you wait too long to say something?
You get stuck in what I like to call “The Friend Zone”.
This is the zone where pain is an every day thing. You spend all your time wishing for something more then what you have, you sigh every single time someone asks you “are you too dating?” because it kills you to reply “no, we’re just friends”. It’s a whole world of just wishing and wanting and yearning and loving from a distance because you know what you want is too damn far out of your reach.
Wha’t worse though is that you can’t get out of that zone, no matter how hard you try to propel the relationship forward your stuck in the same spot and you can’t change it.
There is a way to defeat this zone though; Don’t enter it in the first place. It hurts so much more to know that the person your falling for has no idea how you feel then for them to know and turn you down.
A broken heart you can mend and put back together, but a buried heart is something you will never be able to dig back up.
“The Friend Zone” breaks hearts without even knowing.
