This is for the person who the Cupid’s arrow has shot, but it is either they are satisfied with being single, or the object of their affection is currently unavailable, or the both of you just wanted to stay single.
Oh well, unrequited love shouldn’t be treated like it is a burden. It just shows your capability of giving love even when it is not returned.
