Anon the story is about me and this other girl. The paralels appear when you switch genders.
I'm Star and I helped this girl into a relationship with this other guy. Difference being that she didn't have a thing for him for 10 years. She just thought she didn't have a chance with me and that's why she seeked out someone else.
I've been a big pussyback bitch and didn't push her. Out of the idea that she was indeed in a good relationship with this guy.
But I pushed her today. I pushed way more than I'm used to and I've figured out and told her a couple of things.
One: she is NOT satisfied with this guy. She's just accepted her fate.
Two: Now she knows I have a thing for her or at least that I've definitely got something for her. And it's definitely not just friendship.
Three: She wants something better.
I'm going to keep pushing. I stopped today because she started talking to me about just how much unsatisfied she is. How depressed she gets. If I kept pushing today and explicitly asked her to break up with this guy then I'm certain I would've made her cry because she'd just been so alienated by the only person she can talk it ALL out with. She was already tearing up and had a difficult time keeping her tears back.
She's not happy with this guy. She just feels safe because she doesn't know any other alternative. I want to snap her out of him. I want to help her. I thought he deserved her. After pushing for details I know that he fucking doesn't.
She kept telling me I was an amazing friend as we were about to part ways. She told me I'd find a girlfriend as though she thinks I'm looking for another, that I'm worth a great one too. I saw the sadness in her eyes and lips as she was telling me this. She sighed every time she told me that. I've succeeded in making her want a relationship with me. I just need another day alone with her. When she's calmer. When she's had time to think about it.
