    okay, i didn't realize i put economic in there! I'm sorry! Truly sorry to anyone affected by this economy! Please forgive me! I'm sorry!

    EXTREMELY LONG QUESTION

    Hi, I'm Chris, a 13-year-old guy who's in unrequited love with another 13-year-old, Megan. You better know the whole story, though.

    Well, Megan moved here last year, and I just fell head over heels for her. She's incredibly beautiful, kind to everyone, compassionate, intelligent, and just plain amazing. But only before the next year's winter break did I finally work up the courage to ask her out. I gave her a pricey crystal cube with 2 kissing angels in it, a paper heart, and a note asking her out after break. Well, only at the beginning of February did I finally get an answer: no. Well, I decided to at least be kind to her and be friendly, even though she wasn't interested.

    For Valentine's Day, I gave her a Valentine's Day card, a rose, and the most prestigious gift I've ever made for a woman: a red clay heart (that I was working on for weeks) saying "My Heart" on it, to emphasize that I was giving her my heart. The arrow going through it, on the arrowhead, had the letter 'M' on it. I gave it to her, and a week later, I finally got the answer: She threw the card away, and broke the heart on the ground, and tossed it into the garbage.

    Before that day, a group of my friends, boys and girls alike, staged an intervention to get me off her. They warned me that she only pretends to be kind and is so stuck-up; she told her boyfriend she was too good for him. Their words made sense in my head, but not my heart. And I should have listened to them, shouldn't I have? Well, now, I... just still have strong feelings for her, even after how she treated me.

    Well, a sadistic girl named Jessica informed me of the worst news I'd heard since I heard my parents were divorcing four years ago: Megan has a boyfriend. I know I should be happy she found someone, but I still get terrible heartache whenever I see her talking to another guy with that sweet smile of hers... I work on the yearbook, and, seeing as I have partial responsibility and access to the photos, I got a color picture of her. Just every time I see her smiling in the photo, I grin ear-to-ear and just plain blank out. But the fact I got a picture of her got out to all but her, and now my fire- I mean, my Art class - think I'm a stalker. And that sadist Jessica gave me her number... I have the key to apologize, just not the guts.

    Some days later, Megan and her boyfriend Joe cut in line in front of me and a few other kids at lunch. I desperately let other kids cut in front of me, hoping to avoid a possible face-to-face with a possibly jealous and definetly more taller Joe. The moment she saw me, Megan rolled her eyes and muttered something to Joe about "that boy." Joe gave me a Death Stare, and I responded with a look that meant fear and a "Please! Please don't hurt me!" sorta thing.

    Well, in that day's 8th Period, my friend Emmatt told me that Megan broke up with her boyfriend. I didn't know what to say. My strategy regarding things is after you are told something, you need at least 3 sources to confirm it.

    Well, the next morning in 1st period, I overheard a few of my friends(the same ones that held an intervention to get me unhooked on Megan) saying she indeed broke up. I felt happy, like there was good in the world.

    Later that day, at lunch, I was in a very good mood. i smiled(which is a big deal, seeing as I haven't had much to smile about the past few years) and said "Hi, how are you?" to everyone I passed. I even smiled at Megan, who looked confused.

    In homeroom, my best friend Jeremy told me an interesting bit of news: he overheard some of my friends asking "Why does Megan want to go out with Chris? I thought she hated him." I.... everything went weird...

    In eighth period, Emmatt told me that at that day's lunch, he asked her out for me. She said she would think about it. I didn't know whether to thank Emmatt, or do a Happy Tree Friends on him. He took my picture of Megan and put it in her locker. "oh SHIT! What am i gonna do now?" I said.

    The next day, the same friends from first period mentioned me. And then they said "Oh shit, he's in here!" I looked over there and asked "What?" They grinned nervously and said "We love you, Chris!"(they're girls) In 5th period, I asked one of the two that are in there what were they talking asbout. She said Brenda(one of the friends who wasn't in there) was getting onto Megan for saying she has a bad life; Brenda has a much worse life. She also told her off for being so horrible to me.

    In that day's 7th period, I sat behind Brenda according to assigned seats. After inviting a secret handshake for the two of us(don't ask), Brenda told me about her scolding of Megan. In her words:
    Brenda: "I told her to stop being such a prick and apologize to you. You know what she says?"
    Me: "What?"
    Brenda: "She said 'Oh, we don't talk, he'll just get over it."
    After that, I had to explain to the teacher how the table part of the desk came off its hinges.

    Soon, I kept getting weirder and weirder signs. That Friday, was by far the oddest day of the week. Megan kept smiling at me whenever I did my usual glances at her. She winked at me. I waved. She suddenly jerked around and pretended to work again. She laughed at my jokes. She stared at me for a while and I felt her eyes on me then. Oddest day ever.

    Well, this week has been as crazy as ever. Still odd signals. A gay guy keeps trying to convince Megan to go out with me by screaming perverted things at her.

    I finallized a deal with a girl named Cheyenne(lead photographer for the school paper) for a picture of Megan for $20. Hey, I can't help it I love Megan! I told the others(classmates and cool teacher) that, but they kept saying I'm obsessed. I told them "That picture will be the only way I will ever see her smiling back." And they shut up about it.

    So, what should I do now?

    ::resists the 2005 urge to be a wiseass::

    Ugh, ask her out and if she says no then leave it at that. Sounds like you're coming on too strong though. Girls like to be chased, but they don't want the jughead fauning all over them with sappy gifts. When you're thirteen being in love is liking catching the common cold so don't go nuts over this.

    Edit: welcome to the board btw.

    Meh, you're 13, it's not the end of the world (even though it probably feels like it is).

    Let's see if Omnius' First Law of Personal Advice Threads is further proved or not...

    If you need to say 'feel like', then you don't. Sorry, needs saying.

    You're too young to legally do anything worthwhile, so ditch the bitch and download some porn.

    Not that you probably need to be told the last part. :tongue:

    This is your economic crisis? Please tell someone who lost their jobs and tell them you are horny for some tramp, I'm sure they'll sympathize.

    then later
    My points:
    a) either one of those things isn't true, or you are very misguided

    b) you're thirteen man, there are bigger things to worry about, and more fish in the sea that you haven't met, but who will blow Megan out of the water. ALL OF US have been "head over heals" for someone when we were young.

    c) if it turns out she does like you, go for it, but make sure you understand that it probably won't last, so just enjoy her company and have some fun while it does, and when it ends, don't let you trick yourself into thinking your life is over: refer to point b).

    d) you don't love her

    e) she sounds like she's a crazy bitch

    This is the only time I'm going to be honest and not a smartass in these types of threads. So take my words of wisdom wisely -- as I have been in similar shoes of yours over my many years and I have learned a valuable lesson that has now probably made me a bachelor for life due to my insane pre-requisites that a woman must meet before I even consider if it's worth getting in to a ... *shudder* ... relationship.

    #1. The way a girl treats you before the relationship changes when you're in a relationship

    Okay, so what does that mean? It means if she's being kind of a bitch to you now, it's only going to be worse if you two do start dating. Everything from lies and cheating. How do I know this? Because you can ask *ANYONE* ... a relationship changes once you've finally "caught" the person. It doesn't necessarily change for the worse, but the desire to impress and "woo" the other person goes away, because you have them, and then it's up to your common interests and how you are as people that keeps the two of you together or breaks you apart.

    From what you've said in this thread, she seems like the type that's just going to use and abuse your heart to get what she wants. Yes, she's only 13, but women learn to be evil at a very young age (I blame Disney movies).

    So consider that.

    #2. The only way to get over her is to get angry

    You're basically letting her walk all over you. If she took a crap on your face while you were sleeping and bitch-slapped your mother, you'd probably find some rhyme or reason to justify it and not get angry about it. You're not obsessed, you're just an idiot (not meant in a bad way, but a love-idiot). The only way to get over the "strong feelings" is to get angry.

    I've had girls in the past use me, keep me around and ditch me the second something they want more shows up. And it's hard to get over that, it's hard to tell yourself or listen to other people tell you that you deserve better, that she's not good for you, etc. Sometimes you have to literally talk to yourself out loud, saying things like "What the fuck are you doing? You deserve so much better than this. You deserve someone who wants you back, not someone who is going to play stupid games." You have to let yourself get angry at her for what she's doing to you, how she's treating you, and before you know it, you'll realize that you were being an idiot, you'll get more confident, and chances are soon afterwards you'll find someone who digs you for the confidence you've built by blowing off a girl that isn't good enough for you.

    If she doesn't have the time for you, why the hell do you have the time for her?

    And the whole "I'm crazy for her" excuse doesn't work. It's a logic thing -- you're being illogical by excusing her treatment of you by how you feel. You being crazy about her excuses your behavior, but it doesn't excuse hers.

    And the most important thing of all...

    #3. You're 13 years old.

    Play sports. Go out with your friends. Enjoy youth and innocence while you have it. Because real-life (when you're on your own) is scary as shit and harder than you'll ever realize. No one is there to catch you when you fall. You don't have a group of friends you can ask about what someone thinks of you, you have to figure it for yourself and take chances.

    You're young. Things like "love" and so forth will come later, don't rush it, or yourself, in to trying to live out something you see on television or in the movies - not just because you still have your life ahead of you, but also because that shit isn't true. Yes, there are a few cases where the fairy tale happy endings do happen, but no matter how much you trick yourself in to believing that "All I have to do is that one last thing to make her see..." ... no. If she can't see it now, she'll never see it. Maybe down the road when she's been abandoned, used, and abused by an asshole will she stop and look back at the kid who adored her ... but chances are she'll pay no attention to it and move to the next asshole and complain to her friends about her love life being so horrible.

    It's not worth it. Stop trying to live her life, a life where you're with her, and focus on YOU, and YOUR life. I wasted so much time on girls in the past, and what do I have to show for it? NOTHING. Absolutely nothing, except the experience and quite possible the paranoia that people suck, and it's safer to expect the worst because 9 times out of 10 you'll probably be right (or end up creating it to happen because of your paranoia, but it's why you have to keep it in check and simply wait for the signs to happen first).

    Go be 13. And when I was 13, it was all about street hockey, football, baseball, and yes, occassional group get togethers for an awesome multiplayer video game experience. Shit, I even played guitar for awhile and tried AD&D (horrible memories). But I wish I did those more than chasing after girls that just want to be chased.

    Learn it, love it, live it.

    Impressions I get from your post -

    1 - Girl sounds like a snotty attention whoring bitch.

    2 - Your friends are right about being obsessed, paying somebody money to get you a photo of her is some seriously creepy shit.

    3 - There are several girls that are actually are your friend and care, GET TO THA CHOPPA.

    I'm so glad I didn't go to school. (This next rant is NOT going to insult you, so read ahead without caution. :) )

    1. That last thing about you buying her picture...that's really going to attract the jerks here. Edit your post. Not kidding.

    2. I feel a little for you. It must have been a little heartbreaking/embarrassing for you to buy those gifts, to find out that she HAD a boyfriend. :eek: 

    3. I think you should have apologized. That would really have lifted a lot off you shoulders. :) 

    4. What about any of your friends that are girls? Are you sure that none of them had any romantic ideas when doing the intervention?

    yeah dude that girl is no good and will just continue to chew up boys emotions in her quest to feel better about herself. if the chick is hot, then son, its just lust and leave it alone. you shouldn't even be thinking of relationships right now. concentrate on school and good grades and getting into a decent 4 year. and trust me when you get there...it'll be megan who?

    went out with a girl like that when I was in high school.
    ended up being together 5 years, only to be dumped for the guy that came along that was higher on the ladder.
    please, do yourself a favor and don;t go with girls like that. ESPECIALLY when you're THIRTEEN. There are wayyyyy better things you could be doing.
    don't waste your childhood away fretting over some manipulative, icy bitch. you'll seriously regret it down the road, I guarantee it.
    just fap to some porn or something till you're older, and ready for serious relationships. play dating sims. those help.
    and ffs, PLEASE don't buy photos of girls. that's creepy shit. even in japan.

    PLEASE tell me why you bought her picture for $20? Do you like beat off to it or something? That's the only reason I can think of someone buying someone else's (who they're not related or dating or whatever) picture. Just plain damn creepy.
