Which is worse? Being interested in someone you know will never return it or being to scared to find out if someone is willing to reciprocate one's interest.

Being interested in someone you know will never return it is worse because it is pure torture

feeling that you're unable to find out if someone is interested in you is also pretty unpleasant.

I guess for me I feel like they're similar, though knowing is a little worse. But the feeling that they're similar is mostly because I believe that no one would be interested in me. (unless they're even more desperate than me).

Yes, but not knowing still adds hope. There is a posibility they could be interested and posibility they might not be, but since you don't know, there is still hope. Knowing leaves nothing to the imagination and no hope

My answer is neither. Never having been interested in someone is the worste.

or would that be "never having been interested in someone is worst, when you're interested in being interested in someone"? (oh, i'm too pedantic. it does remind me of saying "my heart's desire is to have a heart's desire.")

going back to the original question: i think that "being interested in someone you know will never return it" is worse. i hate being scared to ask, but at least the asking is something that i can work up the courage to do. in the other case - it just sounds completely hopeless. (then again, i'm not sure how you can be positive that someone will never be interested in you; i've seen these things change once in a while.)

There's something about me that discourages people from being interested in me. Since I'm not really sure what it is, it's rather hard to fix it.

(Suggestions have included being pessimistic, being at caltech where there aren't many queer women, being too insecure about flirting.)
