Realizing that a guy doesn’t like you back is definitely maybe the worst feeling in the world. But even more terrible is having to pretend you aren’t completely crushed. And even more terrible-er? The fibs you come up with to keep up the act. Here’s what we know you’re thinking when you get negged by your crush.
The School Dance
She said: Ask Luke to Sadie Hawkins? Pfft nah I don’t want to be tied to one guy all night long, let’s just to a big girls group!
She meant: I already oh-so-casually brought the dance up to him and he mumbled something about a big guys group. FML.
She said: Haha omg I was kidddinnngggg it was just an emoji!
She meant: Well. If he didn’t appreciate a kissyface emojicon over text I guess he won’t like one IRL. Excuse me while I bury my phone—and possibly myself—in the backyard so I’ll never text something so pathetic again.
When He Talks About Another Girl
She said: Oh yeah, Allie is, like, soooo cool. If you’re into, ya know, boobs and long blonde hair and all that…
She meant: I hate her with the fire of a thousand suns. I’ll think of a reason later.
When You Try to Flirt
She said: My eye? Yeah uh guess my contact is all wonky or something…
She meant: That was supposed to be a wink. Great. I probably look like I was having some sort of seizure. SEXY.
When You See Him on a Date With Someone Else
She said: OMG you guys I soooo don’t care. It was just a “no.” I’ve heard that word before. I’ll BRB, bathroom.
She meant: WHY GOD WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME! I can actually feel my heart breaking in half. I’m going to lock myself in the stall for the next 20 minutes and weep. Then pretend I had an allergy attack.
When He Says You’re Like a Sister To Him
She said: Haha umm thanks bro…
She meant: I’m sure this is how Prince William described Kate when he first fell for her right, RIGHT?!
