I REALLY Want to Be MORE THAN "Just Friends"
Dear Dr. TRuth,
There is this guy I know who I really have liked alot for over a
years time, and I know he doesn't feel the same way for me.
He really just
wants to be friends.
And I understand. I respect the way he feels.
So I asked him, if we could just become better friends.
You know, hang out more,
talk more. And he said, Yes. He said he would be a better friend,

Please help me with what I should tell him or how I should solve this.
Thanks a lot.

going to have to get your pride back.

doesn't feel this way, spending more time with him is
only going to get painful.
Take him at his word. If
he doesn't like you "that way" he is only going to
hurt you more.
If he is ignoring you, stay aloof.

In the meantime, work
on feeling more confident. Get in shape, do well in
school, take up activities which make you happy, and
spend time with people who want to be with you.

We need to work on building it, not tearing
Believe me, that is much more
