Anonymous said: Yo Max, what the hell do I do when I have a crush on a girl who I have absolutely no chance with?
You have two options:
- A) Accept the fact that you have no chance with her and move on
- B) Stop thinking you have no chance with her and make a move.
This is dating 101. If you’re a sad little weenie who doesn’t think he’s good at anything, why the hell would anyone want to date you? That doesn’t sound fun. I’m not saying you need to act like you’re the coolest guy in the room, but leave your insecurities at home.
Insecurities are kind of like action figures. It’s totally okay to have them, but it’s probably best to leave them at home. If you’ve got a girl over, stuff ‘em in a box and hide it under your bed. Then, when she leaves, you can take them out and play with them into the wee hours of the morning. As you get older, less people will care if you have a few of them lying around, as long as you’re not totally obsessing over them. Hell, I know a fair amount of girls who have a couple of them.
There were a ton of girls in high school who I thought I had no chance with, and some of them I was probably right, but there were also plenty who I either later found I totally did have a chance with, or realized I probably could’ve had a chance with if I wasn’t so hung up on having a chance with them. Then there were the girls who had no interest in me during high school, but whose clothes miraculously fell off when we hung out a year or two later. Of course, it helps that I lost weight and was dressing differently (which is always something worth trying to do) but having the right attitude goes a long way.
