Friend: But I like him so much.Never make someone your priority if you're only their option.
Me: Yeah but he doesn't want you.
Friend: But we have so much in common.
Me: You have one major incompatibility. As far as I'm concerned, if this ONE THING is not in sync, nothing else matters.
Me: YOU WANT A RELATIONSHIP AND HE DOESN'T.
Friend: But he sometimes ACTS like he wants one.
Me: He flat out told you his intentions. Listen to what the man says. (If you need to read more about this, check out "The unfunny post to women. And I'll talk and you won't listen. But for what it's worth, keep your heart: 3 stacks." Yes, the intended audience is for women but ANYONE who wants someone who's not into them, listen up.)
Also, don't attach to an outcome. Life is so much easier that way.
