You get to tell them one thing, to leave them with for the rest of their lives
What any decent person would say: "It's cool and I understand, no hard feelings"
What the vast majority of you are going to say: "I'm an insufferable pussy who can't accept that you don't feel the same way I do, so I'm going to use these last few moments with you to guilt trip you/indulge in self pity/be a drama queen"
"I'm sorry" here. In my case, I really do feel the need to apologize. Back during the time of my last unrequited love, I was the fucking cringelord. I did some things that I shouldn't have done, and while I'll never know if I had a chance before then, I certainly had no chance afterward.
That time is long over, and I'm now happily married (to someone else, of course). But even though my old feelings are gone, I would still like to apologize. I've got a conscience to clear.
Though I agree that many of the things in this thread sound like narcissistic jabs at someone for the horrible crime of not feeling the same way the poster did. "You will never understand how much you hurt me"? Really?
We both loved each other so why did we never get together. I know I am a little to much for you, with me being so energetic and loud. You being so calm and sweet. But I thank you for showing me I can actually love a man. But hey I didn't know your expectations are so low. Ya know, going out with her since she was so easy and you wanted to lose your virginity anyway. Haha I wish you the best.
If I could tell you anything, it's that you matter so much to me even now. Even while you ignore me, even while I sit here while your life moves forward. I watch you suffer, knowing I can help, but you refuse.
I'd like to know whether or not the feelings were requited in the first place. I still do not really know although suspected that they could be, however it must be just the wrong time in life.
You didn't trust me, you never did, you trusted him instead. Now you're happily showing people how much you love him, and everyone considers that the best for you. Because what you said about him before, time and time again is forgotten and forgiven. You two love each other and everyone's happy for you. Good thing no third party was ever hurt by you and him, right? Imagine if someone had been pulled in by you seeking affection you weren't getting, just to serve as a distraction and months later was totally forgotten about.
Yeah, haha, good thing no one ever existed like that. But even if they had, no one would ever remember such a man.
I feel really insulted but at the same time I understand you had to go down a long road before coming out. I just wish you could've realized sooner.
But maybe I wouldn't have been your type of girl anyway.
