Crush goes to prom with someone else
It's the last year of high school and I was moved to a new class where I met a girl that I liked. It's a computer science high school so there are not a lot of girls here and overall I have very few friends and zero female friends. I was happy when I was able to talk to her, she does have a boyfriend, but she's still nice and open to others so I thought we got along well.
I asked her if she could go to prom with me, but she said that she already has a date. It's a guy from another class and I've been his classmate for past 3 years. I think she doesn't know him well, but he is a friend of another student who is her good friend so he probablly suggested her to him.
It seems that I was too late and I'm feeling bad about it everyday, blaming myself for the situation.
I tried asking some other girls (referenced by some friends) out and got reject multiple times, therefore I'm not going to dance at the prom.
I continue to talk to this girl, but I often feel empty at home, knowing how much better life could be, what should I do?
