Losing attraction for someone you were once crazy about

3 years ago, I would have done anything to get this girl. Anything. And I did. 3 years ago, I thought about this girl day and night. I would have given anything to get into her pants. Never had sex with her though.

Then, I moved off to college and she stayed back home. Those 3 years I grew up, matured, and I moved back home a few weeks ago. I hadn't seen this girl for 3 years and today I hung out with her for about 4 hours. She was sittin' on my couch in a bikini and we went to the beach for a few hours. If I wanted to, I could have. But for some reason, I had zero attraction for her. She had grown up, but not to the extent that I had.

She was still in that high school mindset. She was still more or less the same person she was 3 years ago. She hadn't matured, she had no direction or motivation in her life, and I was not attracted to her. I remember listening to her talk and talk and talk and thinking: "I can't believe I used to be over the moon for this girl. Now she is becoming less and less attractive with each word she is saying to me."

I couldn't believe it. Has anyone else felt this way about someone they used to be totally in love with? Anyone else used to be crazy about someone and then years later realize you really don't like her at all?

Yeah I've been in a similar thing quite recently. I loved this girl a few years ago so much, stayed with her, did everything with her, I absolutely loved her! One day she told me she was leaving though and well I didn't really think much of it as I thought she would come back, but she didn't. I tried looking for her the last few years but couldn't and I thought maybe she was dead or something but I couldn't accept it as I still had feelings. Then I just don't know, I moved on with someone else and my feelings stopped but I still wanted to know where she was and stuff. Finally not long ago I found a way to find her mum and I managed to get through to the girl like that and we met up for a few days and it turned out she went to rehab and stuff and told me stuff like that if she had told me I would have dumped her and all that crap, but even as she was telling me about her life and stuff the last few years I didn't really care, I just felt nothing for her. Then after a few days she told me she still loved me and for some reason I was telling myself I did as well but in the end I couldn't live pretending I loved her and was honest and said I didn't and that was that really. Always thought if I saw her again maybe I would love her, but it wasn't the case.

Once I read for how long people stay in the "crush" state: up to two years :) Heard it's chemistry :)

Might be an answer.

When we have a crush we are just blinded and we think we love. Later it's easier to be more objective.

Wild, ain't it? This is the same thing I was going through, Jase.

Never would have thought I'd feel this way about this girl.

Crazy how shit can change from being totally ga-ga about a girl and now feeling nothing.

Hmmm, interesting analysis, Nathii ;)

05-29-2011, 03:20 AM
Yep, Nathii is spot on. This thread is about crushes and not really love - but that's fine too.

I have a story that is sort of similar to this scenario: I had a crush on a girl once, and we were pretty close friends too at the time. But over the next couple of months we both went through a bunch of stuff and we changed and grew apart pretty quickly without any obvious reason.
When I'm attracted to someone I always stop and ponder whether a relationship between us work in the long run. Before we went through those months, I thought we could surely make it. Afterwards I had changed my mind. We were suddenly too different and I wasn't that attracted to her anymore. I still thought she looked good of course, but her personality wasn't that appealing any longer.

It's maybe because during this time you've met a lot of other girls you might find very interesting. Attraction is an emotion which vanishes over time.

Entirely CORRECT.
Let me just add this: once you're a bit older, and have a little more 'experience', one might get to know the difference between 'love' and 'lust'. 'Lust' is very nice, do enjoy it while it lasts (it won't be long ;)). 'Love' is something entirely different... you never know beforehand when it strikes you. This coming from someone who's now been in a long-time loving relationship with a certain fellow that she's know for over 20 years... and some ten years back then, never would I have guessed ending up with *him*, and neither did he ever expect ending up with *me* - in a relationship, that is! :D

TEN years and counting - and never a dull moment ever since! :rocker2:

Depends if the attraction is personality or sexual. If it's sexual, no, I've never lost sexual attraction to someone I find hot. If they're hot, they're hot. Personality is secondary.

This. The girls' personalities change. If you were living in the same place as her, it'd happen gradually and you wouldn't notice. But if you don't see her in a log time, then you'll see more easily how she's changed.

Also, your own personality may change. I've seen that it's different girls that attract me nowadays than some years ago.

No, no, the girl I am talking about in the OP, we worked together at a movie theater in 07/08.

I started this thread after getting my heart stomped on and destroyed in early 2011, then moved back down South, met the movie theater girl again, who I used to be crazy about, but not anymore. There was a little overlap, as I met Natalie, my favorite now, in April 2011, who I plan to see again in April 2014.

We gonna see what's going on.

Crazy in love never lasts any longer than three years, tops. Even couples who fall in love and get married and spend 60 years together eventually have to go into a new phase where it's less emotional and more daily-routine

It's not a bad thing. Human emotion can only take things so far. That's why things like personality and how well you relate to each other, those are crucial.

Hmmm...but he seems to be placing the emphasis of the blame on himself, saying "I'm a mug", and "I should be ashamed of myself". Judging by the tone of these posts, I suppose that is referring more to than skipping the tournament.

Maybe he was flirting/pushing her into a relationship too much and she didn't like it?

If she's still in Florida, why did Groove play in Miami instead of Sunrise, he could have just seen her later :facepalm: I had assumed she would only be staying there were a night or two and the tournament was the only chance to see her.

Couldn't agree more.

Groove, don't you know what a chance you had, just think what a fellow mtf tennis pro wannabe like Xristos would've given for a chance to play in a second round future qualie*?! You had that chance and you blew it. Very disappointing after you sort of carried the torch onwards after Xristos decided it was time to let it go.



* Actually after writing that I went and checked Xristos' posting history and activity page on his ITF profile and noticed he actually did reach a second qualie round at a Futures and played in two doubles main draws (losing in the first round each time).

He once had a son that died. Except, he made that up.
Uncovering that sham/deception/lie was one of the best pieces of detective work I ever performed. Quite proud of that one. :D

Do you really think he would've had any chance in the second round? :)

Odds of these stories being as real as his baby story?

Too bad I don't gamble.
But this thread and the whole story is :worship: :bowdown:

You should have played that fucking match. Life is not Hollywood chick flicks.

Ijut. Although a big part of me wants to believe you made the whole thing up: travelling all that way, quitting that match just to speak to a girl for twenty minutes? Insane.

What I'm thinking now is that you made up your whole meeting with Natalie. :eek: And you are struggling to come up with a believable excuse for your supposed "break-up".

No, it is a totally real story, but the feelings were not really there anymore. Especially from her side.

You cannot recreate the past. I don't care what Leonardo DiGatsbio tells you.

based on his reaction I think he found out she has a boyfriend.

No, she just didn't feel the same way anymore.

Hmmm...but he seems to be placing the emphasis of the blame on himself, saying "I'm a mug", and "I should be ashamed of myself". Judging by the tone of these posts, I suppose that is referring more to than skipping the tournament.

Maybe he was flirting/pushing her into a relationship too much and she didn't like it?

A bit like that, yes. It is my fault for thinking I could see her after 2 years and we will pick up right where we left off.

It was more than twenty minutes, and it is my fault for being more of a romantic instead of a stone cold killer.

But you learn from your mistakes, and you become a better person for it. She was on my mind all day every day for like 2 years. I don't know why. I tried to forget her, but I couldn't. So I had to go see her. Now that its over I think of how stupid I was. But it is good because now she isn't on my mind anymore and I can focus entirely on the tennis. I am never going to fall for another girl ever again. Or at least I will try not to. There has been a lot of shit during this training week going down, and all I can focus on right now is my matches tomorrow.

I want to use the court as my sanctuary. I want to take all this bullshit and bring it to the court. All the years of training, of injuries, of setbacks, of people laughing at my dream, of failed female relationships, coach having a heart attack, family doubting me, delivering pizzas like a fool just to save up money just to have a chance at this thing. Draw is coming out soon, all I can do is focus entirely on my game, and channel ALL of this bullshit into my game.

We gonna see what's going on.

Let's be open, frank, and honest. If you want to make tennis as your career (or to earn money)and make it big, it will end as a dream and it is highly unlikely to become a reality.

Also, let's face it, hot girls, like the girl crush you have had recently that ended in a disappointment, look for someone who is better and make more money than a pizza delivery guy.

You said you went to college, use your degree and look for a 8a.m. to 5 p.m. office job and quit delivering pizzas. At least, this is what you need to do if you are looking for a quality girl.

Groove himself keeps banging on that "anyone can beat anyone". He loses credibility when he then turns around and does sth like throwing away the most important match of his career for a very dubious reason indeed.

Johnny, I still have no idea why you couldn't have just taken the chick out for dinner?

No, that is not me, I am 3 years younger.

We gonna see what's going on with the tennis career very soon, and the job and the school, it will all come to an armageddon in the next 6 months.

I went down there, trying to reignite an old flame like the hopeless romantic I am. Didn't work out, blew a Futures QR2, and now 4 bagels in a row :facepalm:
