With tales and ballads of unrequited, one-sided love flowing around, it’s hard to not imagine the pain and heartbreak one experiences in this.
One-sided love is hard enough to deal with; when the person you tremendously love doesn’t feel the same.
Sometimes, being persistent about your feelings slowly makes the other person fall in love but at other times, it just doesn’t work. In account of this, here are some simple ways to make your on-sided love work.
1. Let them know you’re thinking of them
Make your presence known to them regularly. Communicate your feelings properly without any hint of confusion. Do things that make you think of them. If you text them saying, “this movie reminds me of you”, it’ll be hard for them to resist.
2. Be a good friend
There’s nothing more comforting than being a reliable friend to them. Learn to earn their trust and let them depend on you with their free will. Trust is a bigger aspect than infatuation when it comes to serious relationships. Them will want you to know you better and there’s no better way than to be them, trustworthy friend, first. You know what they say, ‘friends first, love next.’
3. Make them see the best in you
Be your best version whenever you’re around them. Showcase how bright and gleeful when you’re with them. It’ll make them really happy to know that them has that kind of effect on you. Flaunt your biggest achievements subtly and portray a good personality. Make them understand what they’re missing out on.
4. Don’t obsess over them
Don’t stalk them obsessively on social media just because you love them. It’s very creepy and moreover, if they get to know of your obsession, they will refrain from talking to you ever again. It’s an extremely unhealthy habit as boundaries are very important in such situations.
5. Be there for them
You may feel frustrated at times before they just can’t seem to accept your feelings, but don’t let this help you make a mistake. Make sure you are around them whenever they need you. Your support, love and care are invaluable. However, remember that they may also take you for granted. Despite all tries, if you feel the same and that they’ll never love you the way you do, then it’s best to leave your one-sided relationship.
