    everybody has at some point.. and the fact you can't have them cruelly makes them more enticing.

    One of my best male friends... who turned out to be gay
    An engaged guy
    A married guy
    And loads of other guys who it just didn't work out with because of distance, etc...

    However, now with my first proper boyfriend, and never been happier! It's worth all the heartache when you meet someone you truly care about

    Yes of course, hasn't everybody? Most guys I have liked have had girlfriends or in one case, a wife.

    Some guy back in high school who was straight, was only really lust though.

    Since then, I wanted one guy, but that lasted for like 2 weeks cause I realised he's not as great as I thought he was.

    I dunno if anyone here is the same way, but I rarely 'want' people... perhaps it's because I'm picky or unlucky with the people I meet.

    I was infatuated with a guy when I was 15/16. He was in the year below me at school. I made friends with him, we'd talk online for hours every day and he was one of my best guy mates (he however, had LOTS of close girl mates, so it was never a 2 way thing). I hung at his house on many occasions and we'd have a cuddle n stuff. It drove me crazy. It wasn't until I'd planned to tell him how I felt, that we were on a school trip to France and he got with a girl in my class. I was crushed. Devastated. I stopped eating, couldn't stop crying. They broke up 2 weeks later (of course!) and we became friends again. I never did tell him exactly how I felt, but it was pretty obvious. He always managed to break my heart and I always managed to let him. I was never good enough for him tbh.

    These days, he's in a long term relationship with a girl from his year. He rarely comes onto MSN anymore, so I rarely speak to him. He'll always be the guy I measure other guys up to. Certainly in the looks dept, because he's my kind of stunning. I have photos of him on the back of my wardrobe door, just for old time's sake.

    When you love someone, even if they don't like you back, they'll always remain in your heart somehow. Even if only as a memory, but he'll never leave my heart.

    Yes, sometimes, I end up wanting guys I've met in real life for some reason but they live a long way away (uni interviews, uni open days or anything like that, just days out with friends where I end up meeting people). I think meeting them once then only remaining in contact through other things like text, facebook, e-mail or whatever allows you to idealise them in your head more. Most of those I got over fairly quickly though after I realised how much I was idealising them. I always feel I have a connection with some of them more than other people though, so it feels like a shame when they live so far away.

    Then there are those who live closer by. For some reason I rarely get feelings for people I live near but it's happened now. The only problem is I don't know whether I've been "Friendzoned" or whether he's still got a thing for his ex-girlfriend. Whatever happens I'm glad he's my friend. The problem is, I always get rejected by people who live closer by and end up just settling for someone else I don't have feelings for which ends up in problematic relationships. I should stop doing that.

    Isn't it human nature to want what you can't have?

    I think most people (I've not done the poll yet) want someone they can't have, and unluckily, life isn't as simple as we probably want it to be.

    Yeh he was going out with a friend and said he would go out with me if he wasnt already going out with her.

    When the time came that she dumped him, he completely ignored me and started seriously flirting with my best friend (who knew all about me and my thing for him). That is the definition of GUTTED! :mad: I didnt talk to them both for weeks LOL

    I became friends with someone who I couldnt have, started to want more but didnt really let on as didnt think it would happen, she also started to want more and ended up breaking up with her bf of 4/5 years largely because of me, and now a couple of weeks later we both want each other but her ex is complicating things for her emotionally and we're in limbo :/
