- Teen Wolf (TV) (1)
"You didn't have to say it back Lydia. You never had to say it back. When I said it didn't matter, I meant it. I love you and I needed you to know that. You're amazing and you deserve to be surrounded by all the love and respect in the world but… it's ok that you don't feel the same way about me."
Stiles Stilinski loves Lydia uncondtionally which means he loves her regardless of how she feels about him. The events of season 7b have left Stiles questioning the strength of their relationship. He's also developed some healthy self-esteem and maybe the best thing for both of them is platonic, rather than romantic, love.
After running into Stiles at the late night movies, Derek realises just how badly Stiles is handling the post-nogitsune fallout. He knows the feeling.

Danny just wanted to buy some comic books. That was the only thing on today's journey of self-discovery to-do list. Asking Stiles out wasn't on today's list. Having Stiles reject him definitely wasn't.
“I have something important to tell you.”
Danny feels a laugh bubbling up inside him, a dry, humorless bark of a laugh stuck underneath his tongue and behind his lungs, and he has to take a second to swallow it down because jesus, he doesn't want anyone thinking he's gone absolutely insane, even if it's just Stiles.
“Scott already told me about werewolves,” he says instead, and starts to close the door.
Strange things are happening in Beacon Hills, but Danny refuses to let his brain go to Buffy-esque places, because he believes in science and reasonable explanations. When his friends are ready, they will tell him what's going on with them, he knows that. Meanwhile, he realizes that Stiles might be more than meets the eye as they start to become friends.
Lydia smiles gently at him, pats his hand, and gives it a squeeze. “What you need is a nice, normal boy.”
“I’d love to have a nice, normal boy,” Danny says, “but everyone seems nice and normal until they’re definitely not.”
Jackson leans forward. “Maybe,” he begins hesitantly. “Maybe you should reevaluate your definition of normal.”
