I Like My Brother’s Best Friend

Warning: A little cheesy, don’t read if you don’t want to cringe. So this guy I liked him back in highschool but then I stopped liking him when we graduated(2016). Then just recently because of Covid I saw him again. Me and my brother kind of have the same group of friends. So this summer I got to hang out with this guy again after all this years not seeing him even once and everyone else. It’s cool and all but I started liking him again but this time it’s deep. Like every time I see him I get nervous and like suddenly my body and brain don’t know how to fcking function lol. I get super conscious when he’s around. I say many dumb shit and I look stupid but I make him laugh though we had this long roadtrip with him and friends as well. I almost got the courage to tell him that I like him but good thing I didn’t. I think he noticed that I like him when we had this roadtrip. I certainly think our friends and even my brother noticed. You know I noticed everytime he’s making a joke he looks at me first. And this one time I was playing guitar and kind of singing too, my brother was like “I told you she can play guitar and sing as well” to this guy that I like. So they definitely had a conversation about me. I know I don’t have a tiny bit of chance with him. Cuz he just sees me as my brother’s little sister. But like even if he doesn’t like me, all I want is for him to be happy even if it’s not with me. I want what’s best for him :( I don’t like seeing him hurt. Like if he has any worries about literally anything I’m always here for him no matter what. If he needs support with anything I’ll be there if he just let me. I can give him the love he deserves. But sadly I am not the one he wants. I just needed to let this out somewhere cuz I don’t have anyone to tell my feelings to :( #FckFeelings

I think you should casually approach your brother, and ask him what he thinks about his friend and whether or not he's interested in you.

When he looks at you first after telling a joke that means that he likes you more than anyone else in the gathering.

So you do have a chance to grab this dude after all.

Happy hunting lol

Just tell him you like him. Always worked for me. Better to be clear about things than lose an opportunity. Also, please work on your grammar. It’s atrocious.

Write him a note because men love notes.
Maybe your dream man will make the first move.

I’ve noticed our education system is failing our youth but never to this extent. 12 years of schooling and they allow someone with such poor English to graduate. That’s what really made me cringe.

OP, don't listen to the grammar grumps. I thought you expressed yourself well and it was nice to see a youthful voice willing to hang with all of us old bitter folks. You're right, it's good to let things out!

I get it that it can be really hard to identify the feelings of others. Even if you can sense an intimate vibe and he does like you, it's good to keep in mind that emotions are ever shifting for everyone and there are no guarantees in life. It's great when people can communicate directly with each other about desire and affection, but that's not always the reality.

At your age my friends and I used to tell each other things like, "It's clear he likes you, but it's also clear that he doesn't know what he wants." I'm not saying this is the case for you, but if it is, don't sweat it – you're not alone! You'll find where you need to be with or without this guy. Make sure you give yourself the love YOU deserve first and you'll do great :)

Thanks for posting and good luck.

Welcome to the internet! Is it your first day?

Sure, the confession could’ve been written better but come on, it’s a confession in the Georgia Straight, not an academic paper.

If her writing style is too difficult for you to easily comprehend, maybe you should question your own schooling.

I felt exactly the same way when I read this post. Perhaps this young woman didn’t graduate though? If she did and that’s the best she can do, then I’m saddened for her! My own kids graduated back in the 90’s and the system was terrible even then in terms of low standards for graduation. The Op was barely even born then and she’s incapable of writing even a couple of paragraphs without multiple errors. Op, I’m very sorry, but honey you really do need to get back to school so that you can learn to communicate effectively. If you don’t, you’re going to have much bigger problems than whether or not some guy likes you.
