True Story: I Am In Love With A Customer But He Friend-Zoned Me
Hello Lively Stones,
Please hide my identity. My name is Rachael (not real name). I work as a restaurant supervisor in one of the big fast food restaurants in Lagos. About three months ago, a customer demanded to see the supervisor because he was unhappy about the service that he received from one of our service girls. I was called in to calm him down because he was really upset.
One thing I noticed about him was that he was very handsome. I made sure he got a replacement for what he ordered for and promised him that the mistake will not happen again. He smiled and said because of me, he will keep coming because he has initially decided to stop coming to our restaurant.
I gave him my number to call in case there was any issue in future. It was after then that I started noticing that this guy comes to the restaurant almost 3 times a week. I was fascinated by his good looks. And anytime he came, he would ask of me. We gradually became friendly. I used to joke that he eats too much in the restaurant, that he should try and invest in some home cooking. That was when he told me that he a bachelor and does not like cooking.
His name is John (not real name). John and I chatted anytime he was around. I started noticing I was developing feelings for him. We would chat on WhatsApp …. he is very funny and easy to talk to. He never asked me if I was in a relationship so I think he has friend zoned me. I like him a lot and I really want to tell him I do. I thought he would pick up that I like him from my behavior but he has never made any move that suggests that he may be interested in a romantic relationship with me.
Last week, he put up a girl’s picture as his status on whatsapp. He has never put up a status message before. I was so filled with jealousy, I had to ask him who the girl is…he said…she is just a friend. I was like, you like her, he was like…yes…as a friend. So, I asked him, what am to you that you have not put my picture on your status…he laughed and said…you are my buddy na….
Seriously….why cant he see that I am burning for him? Should I go to his house one day and try to kiss him like we see in movies? I am just afraid that he may not feel the same way about me…I really like him alot. I do not want to be just a friend or buddy to him. If I cannot express my feelings for him, I am not sure I can bear to see him with another girl…its driving me crazy.
I have been stalking that girl that he put on his status. Just to make sure that there is nothing going on with both of them. Will it be such a bad idea if I tell him how I feel…just the thought of telling him and he laughing and saying we are just friend scares me. I will be so ashamed and disappointed that I may never be able to have any friendship with him anymore.
Every day, I dream about him kissing me and that sends sensations all over me. I cannot even stand near him without sweating in my palms. I have never felt this way about a guy before. John is such a dashing young man, you need to see how girls ogle around him with hungry eyes…maybe that is why he has not even noticed me. Maybe he is too fine to notice me… maybe I am not his spec…I need your help and advice on what to do.
