Crushing on someone is a risky thing to do because you're falling for someone that you don't even know if they like you at all. If, for any reason, you have to get over your crush on someone, Bustle says that there are great ways to get over that person even though you never even dated.

  • Figure out why you're invested in this person and was it superficial? Did you like them because they had dark hair and you have a thing for brunettes? If you're emotionally hurting from being interested in someone who isn't interested in you, you need to address the why in order to start getting over them.
  • Remember that you have options and that this person isn't the only cute option in the dating pool. You may not be ready for any of the other fish in the sea yet, but don't forget that they are out there.
  • Think about what you really want because this crush could be that "bad boy" that you never dated in high school who is now a dead beat, or the "prom king/queen" who hasn't gone anywhere since graduation. Remind yourself of your goals, you might realize that this crush doesn't fit into them at all.

It can be hard to pull yourself away from a crush, especially if you might have hooked up with them and then it didn't go anywhere. It's okay that they might not be interested, but remember that it's not always your fault, too. It is not always a reflection on you that they don't want to start dating.
