Of course, it used to happen to me all the time in college. I would hang out with girls as friends and eventually develop crushes on them some of the
time. But the ones I liked never liked me back - although there are some other occasions that were a bit different, for example, two girls I really
liked I accidentally introduced to the men they would eventually marry. I don't feel that bad about that, though, seeing as they are the only two
married couples I know out of everyone my age.
There were probably more occasions of girls liking me and not getting reciprocation, though, I know that was the case with two of my friends for sure.
We talked about it.
Nowadays, things are a bit different - I base who I like on how laid back they are, if they have similar interests to me, that kind of thing. I've
been doing some online dating and I am kind of picky - a lot of girls are too serious for me. One had three nursing jobs and only came home to sleep,
another was a nurse with no hobbies except for watching "Friends" over and over again in a messy house with dogs everywhere, etc.
There of course is also a problem with me - I am just getting started being independent after college. I live with my parents and am looking for a
steady job (I have some side jobs), although I do have a car, it is a bit limiting. I should be moving out soon.
I would recommend spending time with whatever girls you meet, it is always worthwhile, and if you like them, just spend time with them doing something
in common or talk to them. It's pretty simple, really.
This is a bit cheesy but I had trouble with this for a while - if you have trouble thinking of things to talk about, just think of the girl as someone
you want to get get know and learn as much as you can about. That should give you a good start.
