We've all been in this predicament. Well, maybe.
[Disclaimer: this has no affiliation with my personal life.]
But at the end of the day, is it really a predicament? You fall for someone and expect them to catch you before you hit rock bottom. You're caught, but not by the person who you wanted to catch you. The person you intended on catching you has their guard up. They aren't reciprocating the same feelings, but yet you continue to show signs that you're interested.
The hero who saved the day catching you when you fell, does everything you wish the guy you're interested in would do. He compliments you, he reciprocates and he's consistent. What more could someone ask for? Believe it or not, he's pretty close to perfect. Okay, maybe that's a bit of a stretch. Because you're so caught up on the guy not paying you any mind, you miss out on something and someone great. Potentially.
While you continue to blow off guy #2 and his attempt to treat you like royalty, you're stuck with an individual who wants nothing to do you with. Literally. He's just keeping you around for when he gets bored. That's not somebody that you want to invest your time or energy into, especially if they aren't willing to do the same.
So, with that being said, you're left with two options: you can continue putting your all into someone who clearly isn't willing to do the same or you can move from the zero and obviously, get with a hero. As easy as that sounds, sometimes it's easier said than done. We live in such a shallow society that guy #1 might be lacking personality and respect, but if he has everything else we're looking for we will look right past guy #2. It's the sad truth and as much as we don't want to believe it, we have to.
Would you put your pride to the side and go for guy #2 or continue wasting your time and stick with guy #1?
Ladies, chime in.
