Hello Dr. Innocent,
There is this girl that I am so crazy about. I have told her how much I love her. She has sat down and listened to me as I expressed my feelings but she has turned me down. Doctor, I have done all I can to do to prove my love for her but there has been nothing positive! What should I do?
Love and feelings are two different things that most teens tend to mix up. Love takes time to grow, that’s why they say love is patient. I believe that you should try to see things also from the girl’s perspective. She does not want to hurt you. She is being realistic with her feelings. This does not mean that she does love you. I would advise that you give her a break. Try new tactics like just being a friend and see how things go. Girls are very different from guys! If she really loves you, she will not want to rush anything! Giving her a break will also help you in a way that you will not be hurt any more. Just remember one thing, time is the greatest healer. All the best!
