When I was young and dumb, there was a friend of mine who I thought had a crush on me, and I felt bad because I didn’t reciprocate the feelings.

Nothing too weird about that so far, but I decided to remedy the situation by getting her to confess her crush and then immediately dropping the bomb that I didn’t feel the same after she’d made herself vulnerable.

I swear it was not out of malice, I was just too socially inept to realize what a cruel thing that was to do. That is, until her sister gave me a piece of her mind. Which, fair enough.

Here are a few crush confessions from anonymous people that went a little bit differently.

10. “One problem”

And now you’re involved in a love triangle.

9. “Alex”

Better be careful what you ask “Alexa” from now on too.

8. “Weird?”

Sometimes just the relief of bursting the bubble is enough to move on.

7. “I’m so glad”

People can show their true colors that way.

6. “Made me feel guilty”

That’s really not a fair thing to put on you, unless you were creepy about it.

5. “I confessed my feelings”

And I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more…

4. “Still taken”

What I do have is a very particular set of skills.

Just rip that bandaid right off of there.
