Today, I sent a group text round to my friends asking if they wanted to hang out sometime. One of my friends thought this was aimed directly at her and confessed her love for me. FML

I ******* hate group messages! So much.. Everyone decides to respond to it and you even have those people that'll continue a conversation through it. It doesn't take much more effort to text people by themselves. Seriously guys, just send a text to one person, not 15.

Why didn't I get your mass text?

Because you only showed from below your nose in your picture, that's why you weren't included. :-(

Nope. Its because shes not in his contacts.

163, it was a reference to the god awful song "Mass Text" by Tay Allen.

The FML at the end of that post sounded like a no...

I don't think op liking her back will suffice, op has to LOVE her back

Well, technically speaking, you can learn to love someone. You just can't learn to love anybody. (As an example, most arranged marriages actually work out well, it's just that the bad ones are the only ones that become known to the public.) So if OP possibly likes the girl in question, just doesn't have any romantical feelings for her yet, then he could theoretically give it a shot, see where things take them. He might just end up falling in love with her. Although, he should only do this if he thinks that there's a chance for feelings to develop. (Else he would hurt her much more than if he'd just rejected her straight away.)

Well, considering this is an FML, I'd say not.

maybe he is saying that he feels bad that everyone else had to see it too. so he might like her back...

And why should that be an FML? Sounds like a great thing to me. Do explain how somebody loving you is a bad thing.

I guess some would consider it a bad thing if the feeling isn't reciprocated and there is a possibility it might ruin their friendship.

Ruining the friendship is the lamest excuse ever. Most friends come and go anyway. Unless you and your friend stay in the same town for the rest of your lives, you will grow apart. Take the risk or find a better reason. OP, maybe give it a try. You obviously friend zoned this girl, but maybe you two will actually find a connection. Or, if you find her completely repulsive, take her on a few horrible dates to show her how bad being with you is so she gets over it without ruining the friendship. Try being really boring, not a jerk. Girls stay with jerks.

66- Not all friends necessarily grow apart. My mother has been friends with the same woman for 35 years, and my mom lives in Georgia, while her friend still lives in Pennsylvania.

As some friendships last I can see this one going either way. From experience, I have found if you have the feeling of being in love with someone and they don't have feelings back, it is very hard to watch them bring a girlfriend around and having to watch them be together after he already knows how you feel. Some people can bounce back after time and some just stay away from them.

I hope you at told her (in a nice way) if you are or aren't interested in her in that way. Just hope the other friends also want to do something with you. :P

I can see where this would be embarrassing. But if you like her back then it'll look good on you especially if all of your friends like her. Count your blessings OP.

Show it anyway

That my friend is why no one group messages people who aren't your best friends.

Group messages are just as bad as "Reply All" which is just as bad as Twilight which is just as bad as the bubonic plague.

I've never met someone with such a consistent hatred for something as you have for Twilight. I admire that.

RedPillSucks 31

Is it as bad as group massages?

Well that escalted pretty quickly there, Doc.

Well Twilight is a lot like soccer. They run around for 2 hours, nobody scores, and its billions of fans insist you just "don't understand".

One issue with your comparison. Soccer, though unscripted, has far better writing than Twilight.

#12, Doc, I think you left Journey out of that cesspool of shame and disgrace. Just to spite them, I stopped believin'!

72- what's wrong with Journey? SO much better than the majority of crap people try to pass as music these days..

#76. 1. Steve Perry's voice makes my skin crawl. 2. Steve Perry's hair. 3. Sappy lyrics. 4. Neil Schon (sp?) is a douchebag. Is that enough?
