The Meaning Of Abstract

My blur of Friend Crush and Real Crush has me very confused. The division between the two has been reduced to the finest line imaginable and at this point I'm not sure which one is my goal or if I even have to choose. It makes the usually simplistic, "What are you doing tonight?" turn into a big ordeal because I stress about how to phrase it and in what context I want my proposition to be taken. And not only are the questions difficult but the answers (or lack of) I receive have the potential to start a whirlwind of analyzation and second-guessing.

And honestly, at this moment it's Friend Crush edging out Real Crush because of a few things but even that decision doesn't simplify things. Now, just trying to hang out still has me wondering if he's thinking, "She's trying to get me alone!" Why does being FRIENDS have to be so difficult?


Some clarity would ne nice.

if you figure out how to get clarity in this issue, you be sure to pass it along! Because those of us still searching for the answer are just as frustrated

I'm having the exact same problem right now - I wish I could help, but alas, I'm just as confused as you! :)

It's annoying that I am not confused on both ends of things (his and mine).

Ahhh well, I probably just need a good, hott distraction;)

(glad I'm not the only confused chica out there!)

I meant to say, "I am NOW confused..." (not "not")!

I LOVE crushes. I used one to transition from guyatus (my self-enforced dating hiatus) to relationship and it was brilliant. Crushes are the best thing ever. So delicious and fun. I'm envious. Revel in the butterflies and excitement and uncertainty and intense planning and wondering - it's actually a lot of fun.

It IS a lot of fun:) (Love butterflies)...It's just not fun when trying to clarify between between friends and having a crush.

But I'll do my best to enjoy:) Thanks!
