Default My problem/mistake

Let's pretend you hook up with a girl at the work place...

Your fling lasts about a month

You f*cked up and told her how much you liked her during that fling...
(and now you're forced to see her every week)


What I wish to accomplish:

I want to sell the lie that I'm completely over her... I do NOT want her back, I just want it in her mind that I no longer like her.

For some reason it feels like I lost, and she won... and right now I just can't accept that.

I know,... this is pathetic & embarrassing


Where's the Wolf at?

Wait...so you do like her? Who ended the fling? Sounds like she did and your ego is hurt due to the fact you told her that you have feelings for her.

yep... that's pretty much it.

She gets to walk around all day knowing I sweat her... and that needs to change ASAP.

The only solution I can think of is getting another woman in the picture... She's definitely the type that hates on other chicks.

Just give it time. I'm sure in a year or two or five or twenty she will probably think you are over her. And by then you won't even care if she doesn't.

One saying I have in life is "in 5 years none of this will even matter." It is true for most situations. This chick won't mean anything to you then and no matter who "won" hopefully you will move on.

You can get another chick, but does it really matter? Ultimately?

yea... that seems to be the only thing I can do.

But I did just get off the phone with my ex, and she said she would help me create a little jealousy later this week...

Not the best option, but it could work.... could also backfire.

Or you could just wait until your period is over.

Flirt with other girls in front of her at work AND continue to be friendly/flirty towards her. This way she'll know she was nothing special and you're not going out of your way to avoid her.

The more you try to PROVE that you are over her, the more obvious it is likely to become that you are not over her. Just go to work, and talk as much with her as you do anybody else, but for the most part, just let it run its course. You sound bitter enough that I expect your feelings for her to be over soon enough anyway.

yea... I'm acting like a damn teenager.

I just can't believe the way this girl played me...

It's easier to move on when you don't have to see her anymore.

You don't ever tell a girl how much you like her, unless you're about to pull some strings to making her your girl and commit. You SHOW her you like her in ways that your good at. Give her the impression, but don't ever close the window for her to make her believe the obvious that you do. You keep her guessing, but the 60% on you liking her goes to her gut, the rest is on her.

You can't simply prove you're over someone, you either are, or aren't. Deal with it through steps, you don't skip a flight of stairs because of the assumption she thinks your sweating her now.
