What do you do when the person you love is in love with someone else?
I've had a crush on this boy for a year or so, and I recently told him two months ago. He thinks I'm very attractive, but he doesn't want to date me because he's in love with this other girl (The girl doesn't like him back and told him they would never be together). He keeps hoping though; he's loved her for at least 3 years.
Him and I have this kind of- "friends with benefits" thing going on. We kiss and do romantic things when we're alone and he calls me beautiful(It's basically like a relationship but just private). We would kiss in public but we agreed that it would just complicate things and people would spread rumors. He tells me he loves what we have going on now, and I do too. But, I can't live with this forever.
He cares for me a lot, we text everyday and we kiss at least 3 times a week. When we're alone, he treats me like a fucking princess and I think deep down he does love me, but he just doesn't know it yet since he only thinks about the girl he loves.
"Because that spark that I feel about her isn't there with you. I love making you happy, I love what we have. But you aren't always on my mind like I am to you or she is to me. I truly care about you, a lot as a matter of fact, but I can't force myself to feel the same way".- that's what he said to me when I asked him why he didn't want to date me.
Idk anymore, I don't know what to do to make him forget about this other girl and see what's right in front of him.
Any ideas on how I can achieve this?
