All the Feels: On Unrequited Love

They don't always feels the same way.
ART Trixie Ison

In life and in love, the painful truth is we don't always get what we want. Sometimes, the boy that we like doesn't like us back. Sometimes our crush is already with someone. It happens even to the best of us. Here are just some of the stories that were sent to us this year that talks about unrequited love. Feel all the feelings, Candy Girls. You're not alone.

  1. To the Boy I Never Stood a Chance With

    I never stood a chance to be your one and only girl, the luckiest girl in the world, but always remember: You are the risk I'm willing to take. You are the love I can never forsake.

  2. You Were Never Really Mine To Begin With
    Maybe it's the idea of you I'm in love with. It always felt like I've known you all my life. It felt like everything I told myself in the past— to guard my heart and to stay away from feelings—just melted away when you came into my life.

  4. To The One I Didn't Love Back
    I know that it's not enough but I'm going to tell you anyway: I'M SORRY. I'm sorry I took your feelings for granted. I'm sorry for giving you false hope, for letting you be stuck in the friend zone, for not trying hard enough, for being a coward. My only wish is that you find that person who will love you more than you love her, someone who'll say "I love you" back to you. I hope you get the happiness that you deserve.

  5. I Only Wanted You to Notice Me
    No matter how hard I tried, it was her. And it would always be her.
  6. To the Guy Who Wasn't There To Catch Me
    I knew what you showed me was real, that you didn't fake all those gestures and sweet nothings. I was just wrong to assume that all those meant something else, something that may be more than friendship. You made me feel special, loved and I would never forget any of that even if it hurts.

  7. To the Guy I've Been Loving From a Distance
    There are a lot of beautiful flowers surrounding you and wanting your attention, too, and I know it's hopeless to think that you'll notice a tiny, little, white daisy on a bed of red roses.
