All this doesn't stop me from feeling a bit gleeful when he texts me to say that he's had a bad date. On the flip side, it's a bit of a downer to hear that he's really digging on someone right now. But, there's not much I can do about it all aside from being his friend. And ironically enough, I do like to see him happy, even if it is someone else that is making him happy. Besides, as much as I'd love to be in a relationship with him, I think it's too soon after his last one ending, and some other things that have just been tidied up as well.
Do I still love him? You bet'cha. Am I becoming more accepting of things being the way they are? Yes.
For the record, unrequited love sucks.
