An epilogue from the gay guy who didn't believe in love at first sight

This morning I heard from the reader who was behind "Email from a gay guy who didn't believe in love at first sight", which I posted in the 'Dear GB' category a few months ago. Today's email is a kind of epilogue to the story that he sent me, so I've tacked it on at the bottom of the original posting. Basically, the reader has come into contact again with the guy that he fell in love with. Even though it seems that the story is at an end, nonetheless I'm sure that the reader would still appreciate people's further thoughts, if anyone wants to leave a comment.

When I was at high school a straight friend had a HUGE crush on a cheerleader. Just like the guy in this posting, he tried everything but never got anywhere. Fast forward to today and he's happily married (not to the cheerleader), and with loads of kids too

To be honest I think apart from storng crush as the guy in the email, most people may have crush at ppl in the gym from time to time, that is one of the reasons many people go to gym, guys check out girls or vice versa.
I think maybe if you can lower your expectation down when you approached the lad you had crush on and just treated him as normal mate you would deal with at work or normal social events, and kept telling yourself that you would just want to simply have a chat with a guy and have a laugh or two and take it slowly, the story may not be the same ending as we seen now. Guess crush or love or relationship is like a battle, 'strategies' sometimes are actually as important as simply expressing how you feel.
Best of luck tho hope you will find your 'The one', only god knows when I will find my.

I think you have to put yourself out there, I mean, you only live once and worst comes to worst, the person is gonna say no. After that you move on. It hurts at first, but you'll get over it.
