New advice on a very, very old post.
Wow, it's been awhile since I've been here. Everything looks so different... Anyway, back in the day, I had this huge story I needed advice for with this girl. Her name was Carly... Ring any bells? So,to make a long story short, she didn't like me. I was depressed for a while but I finally started getting over it. Anway, I just came home from a swim party, and she was there. It didn't have any effect on me until we started playing truth or dare. My friends, being the assholes they are, wanted to exploit that I once liked her, so they dared her to do this stupid little thing where she went under the water, came up and flicked her hair, and then hugged me. She was acting all "I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings," because she got to choose who she would do it to. So I swam over to the deep end to dunk my friend or something, and I guess she thought I couldn't hear her, because I heard her saying, "Ugh, no. I'm not doing it with Zach." Yep, this was a pretty big blow to my recovering self esteem. She must think I'm really ugly. I'm starting to feel like I did back after she said she wouldn't go out with me. Any advice on keeping my self esteem up, so I don't go into this depression that she put me into before? I don't know why, but I just can't get that one stray hope out of my mind that she may like me... It sucks.
