“Did I miss an opportunity?”

I have been friends with this guy for about 4 years now…when we first met I was 17 and he was 20. Anyway, when we met four years ago, he really liked me, but at the time I was going through a heartache of another crush, unfortunately.

But with time, we became very close, and we continued to talk despite the long distance. He lived in TX and I in IL. However, I secretly began to develop feelings for him too…I never told him. Eventually, we both just agreed at the time to just be friends, because of the long distance. After that, we slowly lost contact. Continue reading

“He’s always on my mind but I don’t want to be heartbroken”

This is going to start off cheesy but please keep reading cuz I don’t know what to do… So I’ve never had a boyfriend before but I have been asked out many times. Here’s the thing though, I always decline. Even if it is someone I like. I think it might be because there are only two options for how a relationship will end up, it will either end in heartbreak or you will grow up and eventually get married and have kids together.

]But usually, at my age (14) the relationship will end with the first option, heartbreak. I’m scared that if I end up in a relationship with someone I really like, that it will not last and that I will have my heart broken. Heartbreak is probably one of my greatest fears.

Now, I have this crush on a boy who has been one of my best friends since we were 9. And I’m pretty sure he likes me too but he moved two years ago and lives about an hour away from where I am. I really like him and he’s always on my mind but I feel like if we end up together it won’t last because we live so far apart. And now I’m scared again because I don’t want to feel the pain that so many people have felt. I don’t want to be heartbroken. Can someone please help me or give me some kind of advice on what to do with this situation?
