Long-time crush going to prom w/ another guy. Both are going to my college...please help
I'm going to a target, I've always been a top tier student, and relationships have never been a priority in my life. But there has always been this one girl that I've had a big thing for, and for some reason I just never asked her out. Like I'm talking north of 4 years. She was typical crush material + smart, and that's something I have always valued for it's pure scarcity. Not sure why I never asked her out, it never felt right, and I was waiting for the right time. She's a bright kid, and she legitimately got into the same school as me. I was planning on shooting my shot in the Fall. Turns out that ship has sailed, and I was too late. Then I find out that this other guy is going out with her, and is going to prom with her. Total nutjob kid who got into the same school as me because of some legacies.
I'm sure a lot of you can imagine how I feel. Anger, being upset, disappointed, and everything in between. Deep down, I know that nutjob kid has nothing on me, and this alone only adds fuel to the fire to dominate in undergrad and recruiting. Just looking for some advice and words of wisdom. Appreciate it. My first job starts on Monday, and it's in MM PE, and I'm praying this is out of my head by then. Thanks guys.
