What do you do when your Crush likes someone Else?

By on March 5, 2013

It is quite challenging when you realize someone you have been crushing on actually prefers someone else than you, in fact, this is even more depressing when that other person is your closest friend. One of the outcomes from the results is that you go through a mix of emotions, which may include but not limited to anger, hurting and continued embarrassment. In some cases, we find it hard to accept this fate and may continue obsessing on the crush for some time.

So, what can we do to make sure that the other person knows at least they are being liked by someone whom you happen to like? For one, if the other person already knows and has been going out with your crush, in order to deal with the acceptance, you can always tell them how you feel especially if the person is they are crushing on is your friend. In other words, letting them know how you feel and what would happen if they continued to date them can resolve your gestures.  The best way to resolve this is to look rather for a new crush to help you get over the old one. Note that liking someone else doesn’t suggest that you are completely over the old crush or the crush will stop liking the other person.


This is why it is recommended that you should try as much as possible to avoid your old crush and stay away from them for a while. The next thing is to learn how to act naturally, if by any chance, you realize that your crush likes someone else, and that you want to find a different crush getting over them, instead of acting suspicious when they realize that you once were interested on them, act as if everything is okay, and that it wasn’t a big deal.  It is always important to focus on various things, for instance, when you realize that your friend was in fact the person your crush liked so much, you should avoid taking it out on them.


Note that the other person is not the problem, they are completely innocent and thus the free will of your crush to like them was beyond your control, which is something that we should always learn to accept. Another thing is to take everything naturally when you realize that your crush is not interested in you, do not start hating them for that, or you will lose him as a friend if he or she was.

    The boy that I love liked me back. That’s what he said to me. But now I just found out he has a girlfriend now. He made it obvious that he liked me. He would always talk about me (in a good way) and look at me. I didn’t know how to respond to this so I ended up doing some stupid things. But in the end I fell for him and I thought he still liked me after all the stupid stuff that happened between us. But I guess I was wrong. He has a girlfriend now. Did I mess up everything?

      Your interactions may have caused him to move away from you and toward someone else. It is possible that he stopped being interested in you for a different reason. Allow his relationship to run its course. It if ends you are interested in developing a relationship with him, then reach out to him at that time. For now, look inward and determine what you want for your future. Have a great day, KD!

      You can’t change the way that she feels, so there is nothing that you can do. All you can do is hope that she changes her mind in the future or focus on moving on. It isn’t easy, but you can do it. Good luck, Zoro!

      All you can do is move on. You can’t make her like you, so your only option is to respect that she likes someone else. If you can, try to keep talking to her and get to know her better because it will at least boost your chances of getting her to like you in the future. Good luck, NasrDavid!

    I have a crush on this girl… She openly told me how she likes this guy who may or may not like her back… She kind of knows I like her… When she found out she became a bit off towards me…

    Bearing in mind this scenario is basically normal for me… For the past say 14 years… when I was 14… I’ve liked A LOT of girls since that time…

    Never been in a real relationship before (I had a 2 week “I was the rebound” thing before, i actually didn’t know I was and found out she was sleeping with another guy whom became her boyfriend a week after she pushed me away) and I’ve only been kissed once (by the girl whom I was a rebound for).

    I literally don’t know what to do… I’ve literally tried EVERYTHING in the book…

    I’m always me… and When I tried the whole PUA thing… it failed horribly on a LOT of girls…

    I’ve been on a date before… furthest i’ve gotten (never went on a date with the other girl). When my “date” said to me was, which I won’t ever forget… is that i was the most genuine guy she had ever met… She blocked me on whatsapp and facebook 2 days later… I sent a normal text to her asking what happened… her response was… That I must have been fake because I was way to kind and gentle… I’ve gotten the same varied responses from numerous girls throughout my life…

    SO here are my flaws apparently…

    1) I’m too nice
    2) I compliment girls when it’s due or when I just feel like complimenting them… Usually if they have really beautiful eyes.
    3) I genuinely care… I get genuinely interested in getting to know them.
    4) I have never been in a strong verbal fight before… I tend to be very calm and try to work out whatever issue I have like an ADULT should…
    5) I’m not very attractive (I have been told so on a few occasions, to which I just smile and usually gently say good bye and leave)… though I do have really really turquoise eyes… which apparently is very attractive…

    ALSO bearing in mind I have been rejected by girls numbering in the hundreds now… and I’ve never been introduced by friends or family to girls before.

    I just don’t know what to do anymore… It’s really taking a toll on me emotionally now… I feel worn out…

      It sounds as though you are caring and intelligent person. Those two qualities often put off people who have a history of relationships that were not caring and with partners that may have been less intelligent. It is also possible that you are too forward with your compliments. You may want to tone down your focus on eyes and compliments, as this may make some people feel as though you are only interested in their looks. Perhaps try to find someone that shares a hobby or interest. This will help you. Have a great day, EscanV!

      You cannot force someone to like you unless a part of them is slightly interested. You may have to just wait and hope that he ends up realizing that you are the right person for him. Until he is at least somewhat interested, you may not be able to move the relationship along. Good luck, SuperMarioGamer!
