Dating Drama: What To Do If Your Crush Is Taken?

Dating Drama: Crush Is Taken

When it comes to dating, it can sometimes be a tricky thing.  Especially when you don’t know how the other person feels about you.  Because let’s face it, rejection is a hard pill to swallow.

For me, this topic has been the story of my life for years.   I always seem to fall for the wrong guys. Or I wait too long to confess my feelings.  Having said that, it is not always easy.  Sometimes your timing may be off to tell them how you feel. Or maybe they only see you as a friend.  Which may result in you being stuck in the friendzone.

Now let’s all face it, being stuck in the friendzone sucks.  Especially if you have really deep feelings for this person.  But then again, what can you really do about it. You can’t force them to like you back.  I mean some may argue you can, but honestly it’s not worth it. It’s better to have someone who likes you back equally.  Because then you will know, that the feelings are mutual. 

When it all boils to it, you have to honest with yourself.  Are you willing to wait for them?.  Even in the chance that they become single again.  Because truthfully you may never know when that is going to happen.  It can happen next month, next year, or even years down the line.

Also, think about your friendship. If you guys are really good friends, would you want to change the dynamics of your relationship?  I mean don’t get me wrong, not every relationship that starts out as friendship ends badly.  But then again, you still have to think about these things. 


So when it comes to the question of what you should do, I would say take it day by day.  Continue to be their friend as long as you can.  Don’t expect anything more or less because the future is still uncertain. Always remember to work on yourself first, and everything else will fall into place.  Know that it is not the end of the world and there are more fish in the sea. If this crush doesn’t work out, move on to the next and be happy. Don’t wait around for someone that you are not sure of because you could be missing out on someone great.

I’d say find a new crush!


Rightly said. In the end there is only one question to ask. Are you willing to wait for them? That kinda clears up everything isnt it?


Totally agree, need to move on, work on ourselves more rather than just stuck waiting for the crush

I would say take the risk. The worst feeling would be not knowing, in my opinion. Thanks for the post!

work on yourself first, and everything else will fall into place.

I have been single many years and totally forget on how to mend a relationship back if there’s any broken.. Good write up!


This is really one big question that we have to face. To wait or let go? To proceed and see a friendship break? What a risk!

when the one you like loves another, or is with another, it is only right to let go and look for another… hahaha… it may not be easy but happiness is there for all

Love is like a butterfly. The more u chase the more it flies away. Let love come to u. Love that comes to u is the happiest of all. And love comes when u least expect it

I think taking things day by day is a good advice. But I think, we think too much about relationships. I think we should be happy whether we are in a relationship or not. And also if your crush does not like you back , it’s not the end of the world.


Torn between the idea that life is too short to wait for someone and the idea that love is worth the wait. Sometimes it’s best to let go and see what happens.
