With a love like that, you know you should be glad

Why do we always have to be attracted to the people that don't feel the same way about us? Why can't we like the people that already like us a lot? The movies always have the happy endings, where both people fall in love with each other at the same time. Too bad it doesn't really work like that. They always say don't rush into things, and everything happens in its own time, but I'm tired of waiting.
I hate how everything seems like it's so important in high school, and everyone seems to think that they need to fall in love, and need to find the person they want to spend their life with in high school. And for some that might happen, but for most, it won't. There's still lots of time after high school. I want to go to college and find a nice job before i even think about love, but of course the heart doesn't work like that. Sometimes i wonder what life would be like if everyone still felt every emotion except love. People weren't attracted to others. There was no heart breaking. It was just a world of arranged marriages.
But i guess the world wouldn't be the same then. And i guess that's just not how it goes. So i guess you just need to try to be patient, and if that doesn't work, try your hardest to forget about the person. Except that never works either.
I guess what i'm trying to say is, you're pretty much screwed.
