Yes, I know exactly how you feel. I feel like such a dill for liking the popular girls and hence having a hundred and one competitors trying to catch her attention. In addition, she's the kind of girl who values looks over brains and unfortunately to her, I'm just a friend who helps her out with schoolwork.Bob.J said:Why is it that i always like girls who are taken (not ALWAYS, but often )...
I don't know...
Here said:I think that liking someone thats already taken is an incredibly unproductive activity and a serious waste of time, energy and emotional resources.
The time and 'resources' spent liking that person, who you will most likely never get, could be spent on more efficient and productive uses such as pursuing a girl that is single and actually being with her.
So basically, in spending a few months, or whatever timespan, liking that girl and getting absolutey nowhere, you have forgone and hence wasted the time that you could have been with a REAL girl.
Which means that in liking girls that are already taken you are not putting your time and 'resources' to their most productive and highest valued use

BobJ - You are in luv with the chase, not the girl. (yes, I'm a shakespeare nerd, just before you point that out) Its like in Romeo and Juliet - you're in luv with being in luv, knowing that you can't have the girl just makes you want her more.
Its like when you were three, and your mum said "Bob - you can't have an ice cream" - it just made you want it even more.
Thats happened to me a few times. Once i realise that shes way out of my league and that ive humilitated myself all the times that ive flirted with her and tried to impress her etc, i start to avoid her as much as possible in order to ' cut my losses' and that seems to get her attention more than anything.anarchron said:Yes, I know exactly how you feel.
