Wrapping It Up


One-sided love seems to be hopeless, especially if the one you love is already in a relationship or has friend-zoned you. But if you feel that you still have a chance but don’t have the guts to ask the person out, you can actually make one-sided love successful.

Also, one-sided love is not really that bad because you can make that person your inspiration to improve yourself more. However, know when to let things go before everything gets worse and the pain unbearable. We hope that these one side love quotes and one side love status were able to help you realize things and make you ask yourself: Is it time to let go?
