  • Be Honest – Tell them about the crush. It will make you feel relaxed and you wont sleep with a heavy heart.

  •  Understand that it was good that it happened now – Think if you both would have broke up when you both would have went in a strong friendship/relationship.
  • It’s not intelligence to keep hoping that they will one day feel the same – Cmmon you are not in love…It was just a crush!!!

  • Avoid all eye contact – Don’t stare at them not at all.
  •  Maintain some type of distance – If you are near to your crush many things can happen (OLD MEMORIES/MORE ATTRACTION), so avoid. If the person is near either go somewhere else or continue your normal activities.
  • Remember that this person is not the end of the World – There are more Hot people in this World! 
  • Go to the gym and work out. Get your mind off of it and feel better about yourself.
  • Make an exciting change to make you feel sexy. Treat your self to a hair-cut, or a new outfit. Make yourself feel confident.
  • Erase his/her name anywhere you might have written it – (Ex – Your notebook, your laptop wallpaper, on your bedsheet etc.). This happens a lot of times in your crush.
  • Learn from the experience and come out stronger.

Some Tips:

  • If you are upset after finding out they don’t like you, talk to someone you trust, like a friend or counselor, about how you feel. Tell them how you’re hurt and ask for advice. Holding things in makes you depressed, and that can make everything much worse.
  • Do not listen to love songs or slow songs. It can cause you to become sad.
  • You have to remember that your crush for a boy/girl will just come and go. And if you kept thinking about him/her, just say this to yourself “There is not only one but many fishes in the water.”
  • Don’t jump into another serious friendship too soon. Date for fun, date someone you normally wouldn’t have been interested in, have some fun as a single person. Seeing that there are plenty of people out there who want to be with you will help you move on and feel better about yourself.
  • Don’t let your self-esteem drop. You are still a wonderful person who deserves to be loved; this just wasn’t the one who could love you in that way. You will find many though who can. So keep faith in yourself!
  • Don’t talk to them when you’re under the influence of alcohol. You will say something you regret.
