Having a crush is simultaneously a great thing and a tragic thing: on one hand, you get all those giddy feelings from dreaming up a future with that person, and, on the other hand, there’s the chance that none of it is reciprocated.
Unfortunately, these guys fall into the latter category with these devastating text exchanges.
Seriously, Why Would She Even Say That?
I’m not going to lie: once or twice in my life, I have had a thought as poignantly cruel cross my mind before, but there’s a huge difference between privately thinking something and telling it directly to them.
Not The Stroller!!
This guy was really trying to make himself seem a touch taller so he could be more appealing, and not only did she little brother-zone him, but she also put him in a stroller? I’m deceased.
That’s All She Needed To Say
In this woman’s defense, this guy really tried to use his super cute dog to swindle this woman into liking him more, which is a cheap tactic, so he deserved to lose the comparison to Snowball.
This Is Such A Sad Story In Four Texts
This guy really put his heart out on his sleeve for this girl, and she’s really just going to take his words and plagiarize them to send to her crush while swiftly rejecting him in the process.
I Hope He Didn’t Do It
Note her asking if he’s busy just so she can see if he’ll do a whole assignment for her!! I hope, with my whole heart, that he didn’t write a single word of that essay.
Nothing Like Waiting Two Days To Respond
She could have just said that she wasn’t interested in hanging out with him at all, but instead she left him waiting for a response for the rest of the weekend.
That “oh” says it all: he was getting so excited by the prospect of having his crush come over for a night in until he realized that she had no intention of seeing him at all.
A Few Months Late There
I think we should all collectively establish a time frame during which it is acceptable to respond, and, after that time, it’s just accepted as a ghosting. Nothing further needed to be said.
The Laughing Faces Are The Salt In The Wound
On one hand, I feel for this girl who definitely sent this screenshot to the wrong person and definitely embarrassed herself, but on the other, it’s so much worse to know that you were about to become a joke in her group chat.
What A Harsh Reality Check
This guy really thought that he was on the way to getting close to this girl and perhaps even dating her in the future only to realize that he is just a distraction from the guy she really wants.
Brother-Zoned, Round Two
I’m not saying that there’s anything inherently bad about a woman liking you as a brother—because that is a quality friendship—but it definitely isn’t ideal when you want to be more than friends.
Even if he didn’t think that he had a chance with her, it’s pretty rough to have to woman you’re into ask you to help her out so that she can date someone else.
A Hug For That Torture?
Listen, ladies: It’s totally okay if you’re deeply uninterested in a guy and make that clear, but if you do so, perhaps you shouldn’t try to manipulate his feelings for you to get free favors.
Narrator: Her Friend Was Not At The Airport
On one hand, it’s pretty rough that she made up a fake excuse to get out of the date. On the opposite hand, it might have been even worse if she’d just said his height was the dealbreaker upfront.
There’s So Much Pain In That “Oooooh Fun”
He really thought that it was going to be a dinner date, and then they’d literally drive off into the sunset together and it was all derailed with a single text message.
At Least She’s Honest
It’s not like she pretended to have any interest in him just to get what she wanted. She straight-up said that she never wanted to hang out and still asked for the homework because she knows exactly what she wants.
It Was A Sunday
The thing is, if she really wanted to lie and get away with it, she could have said any other restaurant name and he would have been none the wiser.
That’s Not What Anyone Wants To Hear
When it comes to getting rejected, no one wants to hear that someone showed interest or gave you their number because they felt bad, as if you were some hopeless charity case.
Social Media Clout Is A Disease
This girl really destroyed his whole emotional state and confidence all to create a video that was probably 15 seconds long and didn’t get more than 100 likes on TikTok.
He Did Brag About His Recommendations
I’m sure he really was excited about her asking about movies, but, if he never made any clear communication about wanting to recommend something to watch together, he can’t really be mad.
