Imagine…Just imagine that you’ve been single for the longest time that you can ever imagine and then you meet your perfect dream man! He’s walking in a tuxedo riding a Classic Indian bike… (You’re just imagining, so imagine big).
…imagination continues…He’s got a huge bunch of exotic orchids for you but, wait! Who’s that sitting behind him? Uhh oh! Busted! He’s got his girlfriend out on a date!
So what do we do when the love of your life already has a wife?
Nothing feels worse than a one-sided love or a love that shatters just when it has begun. Heartbreaks are difficult but dealing with a single-sided heartbreak just goes on a whole new level.
Let’s see how we shall deal with this drama…
Don’t be too hard on yourself
Don’t you cry honey, the milk was spilled a long time ago! It’s absolutely okay to like someone who’s already been taken. Admiring the qualities of a respectful man even if he’s in a relationship with someone else is absolutely okay. But, what you need to remember lady is ‘you can only admire him from a distance.’
Double check if he is with someone
So you saw him and boom! A crush already. The next thing on the list – stalk him on Facebook. Oops! Too many pictures with his ‘girlfriend’? Well, not necessarily, it could be his best friend too or maybe those pictures were clicked ages ago.
Always double check before you make your assumptions flying high. Because it would be too painful on giving on someone who was absolutely perfect and definitely single.
He is taken, keep his girlfriend in your mind
Stalking – done and dusted. And sadly yep, he is indeed taken. But what you can’t get rid of is your stubborn heart that forever wants to flirt with him. Flirting with a committed man is never okay, and whenever you feel like taking a move just remember he has a girl in his life.
There’s a reason that they’re together and you definitely wouldn’t want to be the reason behind them tearing apart.
As difficult as it sounds, you have to do this ninja stunt. You might adore his company but spending more time will only leaving you depressed and wondering about what you’re missing out.
Sometimes you might wanna just kiss him when no one is watching, but the lady who are we kidding? You definitely don’t wanna lose him as your friend too.
Do whatever it takes but fall out of it
Falling in love is unconscious and easy but knowing it all and purposely falling out if could be really difficult. But lady you are precious and you need to fix your tiara already. Delete his number, unfollow him on social media and get that dating app you’ve been wanting to try all this while or take that solo trip that you’ve been saving for ages.
It’s not the end of the world and you’ll be so much better than this.
If they break up, just go slow
Give him space and let him recover. They were together for a reason and this might just be one those ‘spur of the moment.’ Don’t jump into a conclusion just yet or don’t make any moves at all.
After a bad breakup, he’d be vulnerable and you probably wouldn’t want to be that woman who snatches away a guy while he’s still healing.
