I never fell in love with anyone before. Never had a crush on anyone. Never dated anyone, I just thought it was a headache. My bestfriend challenge me to a game. He said "I bet I can make you fall for me" or something along those lines. He knew that I wasn't interested in love or anything like that. We basically did it as a joke. He was popular with girls and I didn't understand what they saw in him. We agreed that he could do whatever it took. I didn't care 'cause I was certain it wasn't gonna work. I kept telling myself it's just a game. He took it very seriously and was determined to make me like him. At that time I didn't even think about what would happen if he succeeded. That didn't cross my mind, not once. When he came over, all he'd do was read online articles called 'how to make her like you 101'. He'd practice what the article said to do with me, and they were hella funny. He'd tell me that it wasn't funny but I couldn't stop laughing. One time I remember he told me to look directly into his eyes and he repeated the words "You love me Jayleen" over and over again. I tried to look away bc I felt weird in away. When I think about it now I get chills and my chest hurts. Anyways, I told him not to do that one again and that it didn't work. Another incident was when we were walking home and he randomly said I like you. When he said that it made me freeze and I didn't say anything. He asked me if it was working, if I was starting to like him. I obviously said no. When I got home my mom started randomly asking me if I liked anyone, immediately after she said that all I thought about what his stupid face. I told her no and ran to my room. I went on tiktok and all the videos were about falling in love. This one video was like if you say you don't like him, why did he appear in ur head then or something like that. And in every situation his face would come in my head talkin bout some 'you love me Jayleen'. I didn't know what to do so the next day as we were walking home I told him that I quit the game and it wasn't working, knowing very well that it was working. It was like I was afraid to like him. He said alright and said it was a fun game. Idk why he enjoyed it so much. But I think I like my best friend, idk what to do and I'm to scared to tell him. I start shaking every time I think of me maybe liking him. What do I do?? Ever time I see him I think he's gonna do those things he did to me and my heart starts beating really fast. OUT OF ALL PEOPLE HE HAD TO BE MY FRIST POTENTICAL LOVE INTEREST. I'm kinda scared idk why.
