For over two years I've been thinking of this one person every single day. I had a serious crush on her from the start, but kept it secret until last Autumn. I thought maybe telling her how I feel would help me get over it, but it hasn't helped. I still dream about her often.
I really wish I could move on, but nothing I've tried has helped. What can I do? The obvious solution is to cut her out of my life completely, but she's the closest thing I've had to a real friend. I don't want to go back to being completely alone again.
If you can't get her out of your life, you'll have to stop thinking of her (Or at least stop thinking warm, fuzzy thoughts about her). That type of mental discipline is hard to come by, however if successful you'll be a better person for it.
so have you told her yet?
There's no miracle recipe to forget that, try to see her less often, you saif it yourself: "she's the closest thing I've had to a real friend" keep that kind of thoughts and it could ease your worries.
