They say it's easier to get over an unrequited love than it is to move on from a once-requited love. Maybe it is. Moving on from it requires us to go through 10 stages at the very least, NBD. It's just 10 stages. Super easy. *goes to the corner and starts ugly-crying*

Stage 1: The milder form of denial.
"C'mon, we weren't formally introduced. He can't not like someone he doesn't know."

Stage 2: The full-blown denial.
"Give it time. He'll soon realize we're meant to be together."

Stage 4: The confusion.
"I'm okay about it. I've accepted the fact that he doesn't feel the same way. OR NOT." *starts ugly-crying for the nth time*

Stage 5: The bargaining.
"Maybe if I smile a little wider or if I bat my eyelashes a little faster he'll like me back?"
