We all have been there -- crushing on someone they ought to not be crushing on. Sometimes for days, sometimes for months -- either way, for long. But with a small mind power as well as a small bit of time, you'll cease thinking about him or her and start to wonder why you ever did.

Method 1 of 3: Ending the Infatuation

  2. Give yourself space. The elderly proverb, "Out of sight, out of mind," is true. When you surround yourself with different people and things, this person will become an object of the past.
  3. In case you share the same friends and cannot avoid your crush, hang around in giant groups. Cut down on the one-on-one time and stay nearer to other guy/girl friends.
  4. In case you share the same extra-curricular activities, don't drop out -- that avoids the issue. Keep yourself with friends -- or use this as a reason to make new ones!
  5. Don't go where they go! In case you know parts of their schedule and where they will be, busy yourself somewhere else. You don't need to be jogging in to them -- accidentally or intentionally.

    2. Give yourself time. Emotions don't go away overnight. Slowly but surely, though, they will fade.
    3. Keep a journal. Getting your feelings out will help with closure. Bottling anything up is not healthy and leads to frustration and stress.
    4. When you start thinking of them, cease. You have the power to do this. Divert your thoughts to anything else -- what was that comic thing Allie said today? Who is that cute new student in third period? Will global warming be the death of humankind? Often, there's much bigger issues at hand.

      • Stop checking up on them online. Being consistently reminded of them will only make things harder.
      • Unsuscribe to them on Facebook. This will still list you as a mate, but remove their tales from your news feed. Doing so avoids the classic & awkward, "Hey, why did you delete me?" conversation.
      • Unfollow them on Twitter. In the event that they ask, there's lots of excuses you can make: "I'm wasting much time on the Web," or, "I did? Strange -- my mate said the same thing."
      • In case you are not nice friends, delete his or her phone number. This removes any temptation to call or text.

        • Get rid of reminders. It is harder to forget someone if you are surrounded by items that spark unwelcome thoughts.
        • Did you write their name on a laptop? Do you have an elderly note from them? Did you use to drink Orange Crush together? Get rid of things that make you think of them. Put yourself in positions where fantasizing about them is avoidable.
        • Or, in case you cannot permanently get rid of something (like a piece of furniture or a school textbook), try to find ways to keep it out of your sight as much as feasible. Wrap a book in a new cover, or toss a throw over the couch you used to sit on together.

          • Think of their faults. Everybody has them. Odds are, you have been unable to see them because you have been idolizing that person.
          • Why would you like to cease liking them?
          • Why do others not like him or her?
          • What don't you have in common (that you do have in common with someone else)?

            2. Forgive. Sometimes, people are not lovely for us. If this person leaves you feeling mournful or not lovely , odds are you are in a poisonous friendship.
            3. Don't hold grudges against the person. They may be wrapped up in their world to notice their effect on you.
            4. Make peace together with your feelings. Whatever they are, they are legitimate -- you would not be feeling them in the event that they weren't! Forgive yourself, .

                Forget. A toxic friendship isn't worth having. Though you may hope, change is unlikely to come. A better way to spend your time is around people who let you thrive and make you feel comfortable.
                • Stop putting effort into the relationship. Be kind when near, but don't seek out opportunities to be noticed or appreciated by this person. Put effort into relationships where the other person is willing to meet you halfway.
                • Concentrate on other friends. You have a support system all around you of friends and family who care about you. You are not dependent on this person.

                Cease putting work in to the relationship. Be kind when near, but don't seek out opportunities to be noticed or appreciated by this person. Put work in to relationships where the other person is willing to meet you halfway.
                Concentrate on other friends. You have a support technique all around you of relatives & friends who care about you. You are not dependent on this person.










                Method 3 of 3: Developing New Habits

                2. Make new friends. (Or rediscover elderly ones!) Reinvigorating your social life will give you an absorbing distraction, & you'll spend valuable time building up your support method. Here's how to expand your circle:
                3. Join a new club or team. In the event you play a sport or have a favourite hobby, hunt down ways to practice with other people.
                4. Volunteer your time. Check out your local hospital, nursing home, or pet shelter.
                5. Receive a part-time job. Ask around to see if someone you know is hiring part-time help, or browse through local job postings.

                  • Busy yourself. You'll barely have time to think about him/her.
                  • Pick up a used hobby (i.e. painting, an tool, a sport, cooking)
                  • Organize events for you and your friends (as simple as going to the flicks.)
                  • Get more involved along with your relatives.
                  • Get more involved online.
                    • Stop Liking Someone Step 11.jpg
                      3Better yourself. Take time to focus on becoming the person you aspire to be. After some time, you'll be nice for -- who again?
                      Work out. Go for a run, take up yoga, or start practicing a sport. The endorphin rush that comes from exercising will lift your mood, & you'll look better than ever!
                      Take a class. Have you always desired to learn pottery, or find out more about martial arts? Now is the time!
                      Read up on your interests. Pick up that new novel you have been intending to read, or spend more time catching up on the news.

                      • Change your tastes. You both like the same music? Well, not anymore.
                      • Experiment with new TV shows
                      • Find new, up-and-coming bands (or break out your parents' records!)
                      • Catch on to a new fashion trend -- or start your own!

                        5- Keep your eyes open. Like they say, there's lots of fish in the sea. Keep in mind to keep having fun. Hang around. In case you put yourself in new situations, you'll find new (& better) potential interests.
