When crushes don’t work out the way you hope.
first, i love you, and you never fail to make me smile. second, i’m feeling bad today because i hooked up with my dream guy a few days ago, and now he won’t text me back. i’m embarrassed that he has this much power over me, and i feel like an idiot for trusting him. any advice?
Oh, sweetheart. Come here. I would like to give you a bit of a cuddle, if that’s okay.
You’re not an idiot. Please don’t say that about yourself. You are smart and special and loving and most certainly not an idiot.

You cared about someone, trusted them, and put yourself out there. That makes you brave and caring! The other person is having trouble being a grown up is no reflection on you. You can’t control other people, and you aren’t stupid for being hurt.
I think that this person is probably doesn’t know what to say, and is choosing to ignore you rather than deal with something possibly awkward and hurtful. Again, this is absolutely no reflection on you.
It’s okay to feel hurt and disappointed. You were hoping for something, and had feelings that weren’t returned. It’s natural to feel hurt. But it will pass. You can forget about this person, and focus your attention on someone who is a bit more worth your time.
In short my advice is:
  • It hurts now.
  • You’re not an idiot.
  • It won’t hurt later.
  • You are amazing and I love you.
