It’s happened to all of us at some point or another: you have a crush on a guy who already has a girlfriend. UGH. Knowing that you like someone who is already (probably) happily taken with someone else is one of the worst feelings ever. It’s like the world is playing a big trick on you: here’s this amazing dude you want to be with, but you can’t.
Crushing on someone who’s in a relationship is complicated. It leads to messy, emotional feelings and it basically just stinks. It’s enough to make you question all of your morals. So, here’s what it’s REALLY like to crush on a guy who has a girlfriend. I think most of you will appreciate this:
You spot this hot guy and you’re like: (mine gif finding nemo)
You spend days (maybe weeks) figuring out how to start a conversation with him.
You go out of your way to try to see him and talk to him.
Finally, IT HAPPENS.
He’s basically perfect and you’re pretty much in love.
Until you find out… he has a girlfriend.
How can the man of your dreams have a girlfriend already?!
You tell yourself to stop thinking about him, but you can’t.
So you decide it’s totally fine to like him as long as you don’t tell him.
But whenever you see him, you can’t help but flirt with him.
You start stalking his girlfriend on social media. What does he see in her?
You wonder if you could break them up.
Then you feel bad for wondering that.
You complain to all of your friends until they’re like, “God, SHUT UP.”
People are like, “There are other fish in the sea,” and you’re just like, “But I want that one!”
Every time you see him, you feel happy and excited but also miserable because he’s taken.
You briefly consider telling him how you feel.
NO. You can’t do that! He doesn’t care!
So then your life is a series of endless questions. Should you wait around for him? Should you move on? Should you tell him you love him?
Everything is confusing.
Seeing them together is like being punched in the gut multiple times.
You just want to be with him.
Life is not fair.
