You have to ask yourself whether you have done what you should have in order to let your crush know how you feel about them.
If you haven’t taken any proactive steps to get your crush, you really haven’t earned getting to the stage of giving up.
Have you actually asked your crush out?
Have you actually told your crush that you are interested in them romantically?
Have you actually flirted with your crush?
Again, you have to be honest with yourself here.
Truly ask yourself about what you have done so far.
If all you have been doing is hoping that this crush would somehow get the point that you are into them, you haven’t done what you are supposed to do.
If all you have been doing is hoping that your crush asks you out instead, you haven’t been proactive in all this.
If all you have been doing is trying to drop hints here and there about how you feel about your crush, you haven’t played your part in all this.
If your crush is single and available, you have to take proactive steps in letting them know how you feel about them.
The problem that so many people run into is that they just keep hoping that their crush will come around at some point.
Again, they throw vague signals of interest at their crush in the hopes that their crush gets it.
If you are really shy, you may not have even thrown any signals of interest in the direction of your crush at all.
These two scenarios do not help you in the least because there is no guarantee that your crush will come around to understanding how you feel about them.
You may have been hesitant about letting your crush know how you feel about them or asking them out because you are so worried about being rejected.
You may be so worried that the rejection would crush you and you wouldn’t know how to deal with it.
You may worry about how the dynamics of your relationship with this crush could change if your crush were to reject you.
You may just be afraid of rejection in general.
Listen, at the end of the day, you will have to ask yourself just how important it is to you that your crush knows how you feel about them.
If it is really important to you, you may be able to draw strength from that and feel that you can take a risk in asking your crush out or letting them know how you feel about them.
The last thing you want to do is get to a point in your life where you regret the fact that you didn’t let your crush know about all this.
You may see your crush with someone else in the future and instantly regret that you didn’t ask your crush out when you had the chance.
Someone else is now the object of your crush’s attention and love.
That may be a much worse feeling than the possibility of rejection.
You should take action with your crush right now and let the chips fall where they may.
