Every girl has been there. “Do I double text him? Should I ask him on a date? Maybe, he’s just not that interested.”
Today’s topic was created by the devil himself – crushes. I know, I know, I swore off dating early on in this blog, but what’s a girl to do?
Okay, so how is one supposed to handle crushes? I took my questions to Twitter and asked my followers (all 1,500 that barely interact with me). But some of my friends had some of the same issues as I do — being over analytical, the fear of showing too much interest and making themselves believe the other person is more interested. My favorite tactic is to allow it to self destruct so I never have to deal with the idea of having feelings again.
I try to stay away from the dating realm as much as possible, but sometimes someone comes along and you get that stupid, giddy feeling when they text back and when they don’t reply you’re bummed, and then you find yourself scrolling through their Instagram and sending screenshots of their photos to your friends (or that could just be my crazy self).
Either way, my research led me to the cold hard truth, I’m not alone. Everyone I know is clueless too, so as I sit here fresh out of the shower contemplating on what to do, millions of people feel the same way.
The scary thing about crushing on someone, though, is that in the beginning it’s intense and there are so many emotions overwhelming you that it can be hard to handle. And I’d rather not give in to my girlish ways and let a crush devour me, but it almost always does.
I’ve also convinced myself that my new found lust for a special somebody is because I am re-watching Gossip Girl and it’s physically impossible to not watch that show and want someone in your life, even Blair Waldorf, the independent queen is constantly yearning for a someone.
It’s just one big mess because if the first move is made and they’re not interested, it’s always a vague response with some lame reason, which I am totally guilty of, but no one wants to hear their own rejection lines.
Maybe there’s a possibility feelings can be resisted, maybe it’s human nature or it’s just that all romantic feelings are fleeting. I don’t know, but my brain is consumed and confused.
