Ask Mr. X: “I love a friend of mine a lot but he doesn’t know…I feel like a one-sided lover. What do I do?”

Ever wanted advice on your relationship from that cool guy friend who has all the answers? Well, Mr. X is that friend for you. Every other week, he’s going to answer the questions you send him and if there’s one thing you can count on him for, it’s being honest. So go ahead, ask Mr. X. 

‘I love a friend of mine a lot but he doesn’t know. I find him really cool and he’s always surrounded by girls, but still doesn’t have any girlfriend. He’s civil with me, but has never shown any interest in me outside of our friendship. I feel like a one sided lover. My friends tell me I deserve better but I’m stubborn in my love life — once I pick my choice I stand by it. What should I do?’

Mr X’s Response:

Ok friend. This is always a tough situation to be in. You have two options. You can shoot your shot and possibly risk losing him as a friend, or you could just suck it up and move on. From what I gather, your friend seems to be a reserved guy so it’s possible that he may feel the same way. Having a honest chat with him about this can’t hurt. It could go either way. Maybe he feels the same way. Or maybe he starts seeing you differently after learning how you feel. Either way, for your own sanity, being honest seems to be the right thing to do. It may be a tough conversation to have but you’ll have clarity once it’s over.

Godspeed,
Mr X
