It all started back when her and I were 3 years old. We just became neighbors. We were best friends untilabout age 6. Then we are just friends until 4 grade. Then we were friends but not as close as we were before due to school cliqs but us and other neighbor friends played together after school until about 7th grade then things just fell apart but we had 2 classes together our junior and senior year for HS so things revived only for that time. I’ve been loving her for as long as I can remember. Asking her out every few years while being a kid. Always “you’re like a brother.” We don’t really talk now but like eachothers IG posts. We are both now 21. She is engaged to her BF of 4 years. I did have a GF myself during this time for 1.5 years but I always feel like I’m a little attached to my neighbor crush though and I don’t want to ever let go just in case there is a chance we can actually date. Do I let it all go or hold a bit on? This don’t really effect my love life with developing new crushes or finding a girl in the club. Just feels like an odd situation.
I think it’s time to let this go. I know it is hard, trust me I understand. But if she is going to be stepping into a new and big chapter of her life with someone she is committed to, it’s time to let this odd feeling of romance towards her fade out. There is nothing wrong with the way your feeling, but just remember there are so many other fish in the sea, just consider this girl as a friend.
