Here is a story about unrequited love.
Male: “I asked her to marry me and she said no.”
Male’s sister: “Oh girls do say no to start with because they are shy. It doesn’t mean that she doesn’t love you”
Male: “It does and she has really hurt my feelings.”
Male’s sister: “But she really likes you”.
Male: “We were such good friends but now she just goes off and ignores me”.
Male’s Mum: “Well, I am sure you will find someone else to ask to marry in the future”
Male: “No, I won’t. Nobody will ever marry me now”
This is the story of having your heart broken at the grand old age of 6.
The pain of unrequited love. We have all experienced it but 6 seems a little young to feel it so bitterly.
