11 Reasons You Might Be Gunther From Friends

2. You've Been In Love With One Person For A Long Time (Who Doesn't Know You Exist)

Gunth Jump 3 GifGunth Jump 4 GifGunth Jump 1 Gif There's something both inherently wonderful and downright sad about being in love with the same person for a long period time - if it goes well, you might end up like Tim and Dawn in The Office, where all those years of pain and heartache finally pay off and everything works out. Or you might end up in a situation much like the one Gunther is in for the whole of Friends - 10 long years of pining after somebody (in this case, Rachel) who doesn't have the slightest clue how you feel. If you've been in love with the same person since forever, then, maybe it's time to grow a pair and tell them that you think they're totally "boss" (or, you know, a more relevant version of that).

1. Your Crushes Always End Up Saying They Love You (But "Not In That Way")

Gunther Sad Friends Gif So what is the ultimate reason why you, or anyone else who presumably experienced a lot of the things on this list, might be Gunther from Friends? Well, it all comes down to the fact that when you do finally reveal your true feelings to that lifelong crush, they quietly tell you something like: "I love you, too... but not in that way." We all know what this translates to: "I just don't fancy you." So when Gunther finally tells Rachel that he loves her in the final season of the show and wonders if such a revelation will change her plans to leave New York, we know what she's going to tell him ("I love you, too... but not in that way," of course). If this is something that keeps happening to you, then, you might want to consider one of two things. Firstly, that you're falling in love with people who are way out of your league. And two: who cares? You can't help who you fall in love with, and one day - just one day - it might work out. Unless you're name's Gunther, of course. In that case, you need to just get a grip. How much like Gunther were you? Think we've misjudged Central Perk's most famous employee? Let us know in the comments section below.
