Have u ever ruined a very good opportunity for a love relationship.....

............just because the other person was ‘TOO’ good for u?

My sister just did!She’s been in love with that guy for years now and she never thought that he could love her too.He’s the sorta fellow who has everything, a nice personality and the looks too! But the other day he told her he loved her and she laughed cuz she thought the guy was making fun of her! She could not believe that someone ‘so great’ could love her (we’re a very insecure family! ). And now she’s having regrets.She’s thinking ‘what if he was serious?’The guy is keeping his distance from her now unsurprisingly!

Any of you been thru something like that? And what did u do about it?

Of course she should. Can't she ask him how serious he was?

Never ever ever been that stupid. My good opportunities crashed because the other person thought they were too good for me.

Just to follow up, my own nearest experience is this. A girl whom I loved very much dumped me...but later wanted me back, though she never said so in so many words. I only found out years later when she told me that was how she felt at the time. She and I are still very close. In fact she is just about my best friend, but we are not lovers. The thing is, I'm sure I would have picked up on her hints/behaviour if not for the feeling that I wasn't worthy of her.

That makes me encourage others not to be put off by those feelings of unworthiness.

Fortunately my love life has taken other (very good) directions, etc, etc, and I can't really regret what happened. But I do sometimes wonder what might have been, knowing what I know.

I had that self doubt too where I felt that I wasn't good enough but like is the case in many of these instances, I found out that that wasn't the case. She was the one that was not good enough for me.

You just have to keep believing in yourself and try not to put the ones you like on such a pedestal.

I had an experience very much like Steams'.
Thankfully, he had a friend who pointed out to me that I was too good for this dude...and we broke up. Best thing to ever happen to me.

Oh yeah...and when I told my ex that I was too good for him, he sneered like, "um, okay..." like he thought the exact opposite. I swear, my whole family knew this guy was slime...and I'm glad he's with my ex-friend now. They're both revolting, and they deserve eachother

And I'm very happy for you Love is a good thing

I told her boyfriend that I was too good for her and she wasn't too pleased about that. It really upset her and made her flirt with me even more. It was pretty amusing but she blew her chance.
