We've all been rejected at some point in our lives or have harbored feelings for crushes who consider us "just friends" or mere acquaintances. Your crush is being candid that they don't see you as a romantic partner. Yes, it hurts, but they've saved you time and energy in figuring that out yourself. They are telling you that for some reason, there's just no spark between you. You cannot make them feel something they don't. Perhaps they like short, nerdy, engineering girls and you're a tall, wispy creative type. Or they like loud and brassy girls who love to party but you are an introvert with a close-knit group of friends who spends all your extra time running. Instead of trying to change who you are, look for someone who will cherish you for who you are. There's someone who will enjoy YOUR type, whatever that is!
