How do you tell the difference between a friend and a crush?
I once saw a post on facebook saying ‘that tingly feeling you get when you like someone is common sense leaving your body’. I really like this definition because the only way I can really tell that I have a crush on someone is that I notice myself being kinda stupid around them. Even then though, I don’t really think I treat crushes much differently to how I treat new friends. Either way, what I want is to get to hang out and talk and do fun things with them, so it all ends the same.
Can you describe what it feels like to have a crush? Or a squish or other types of attraction? Are these things easy for you to differentiate? How do you decide what to do about your shiny new feelings?
