He’ll never love you!!!!!! :(:(:(

We’ve all been in that situation; hopelessly crushing on someone who will never even look your way. With school back in session, you might find yourself falling for some new campus cutie, or that young professor that teaches you Bio, or Pennywise, the Dancing Clown. Pennywise is the charming and delightfully handsome character from the recent film IT, a romantic thriller that puts 50 Shades of Grey to shame. He’s never going to love you, so here’s a foolproof guide on getting over him.

 

  1. Let yourself grieve.

It’s okay to be sad. Pennywise, the Dancing Clown is a huge catch and it’s heartbreaking to know he doesn’t love you back. Let yourself cry it out. Put on that emo playlist from grade seven that you have saved up for these situations. Remember the memories, write a song, or make a scrapbook of the good times.

 

  1. Don’t get hung up on what could have been.

For whatever reason, it didn’t work out. Don’t dwell on all the things you could have done differently to make him yours. Maybe Pennywise is just too busy right now for a relationship. Maybe he’s just not that into you. Why would he be? Have you seen him? Lower your standards.

 

  1. Distance, block, and delete.

Block his social media—you don’t need his adorable, sexy photos clouding your feed. Don’t do things that will remind you of him. The circus, dancing, and rom-coms are to be avoided at all costs.

 

  1. Put yourself out there and meet new people.

Someone is bound to love you eventually. It just won’t be Pennywise, the Dancing Clown.

 

  1. Consider the fierce competition.

It’s not easy loving Pennywise, and you’re certainly not the only one who does. The fight to win his heart is not for everyone.

 

  1. Take him off that pedestal and remember that he has flaws too.

You’re not in love with Pennywise, the Dancing Clown, you’re in love with the idea of Pennywise (the Dancing Clown). Imagine what a life with him would really be like, a life complete with boring routines and every day mundanities. Will you still love him when he leaves the cap off the toothpaste? Will you still find him attractive when he doesn’t Febreze the bathroom after pooping? Or when he snores? What if he doesn’t tip servers? This isn’t helping, is it? You want all of that. You want him. You want all of him. Your heart aches for a future with him, you dream that every day starts and ends with him, you want the good and the bad, the fun and the boring, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, you need him and all of his flaws and all of his perfections. Well, you can’t have him.

 

  1. Remember the ugly character he plays.

It’s hard to believe that beneath his beautiful shell, Pennywise sometimes portrays a horrifyingly ugly man named Bill Skarsgård (pictured below). That should be enough to turn anyone off. He’s creepy looking AF.
