The Wonder Of Crushes

Posted by on Thursday, January 19th, 2012 with 0 comments

Having a crush is one of our original human impulses – it is the feeling of seeing in another person characteristics that compliment your being so well that you feel impelled to join their life with yours. It is a strong, passionate longing for a partnership with a person that has something you don’t have and could never possess. It is a magnetic desire for an image of beauty fetched from youth. It is a flood of emotion so mentally overwhelming that it affects your physical being.

Thinking of your crush directly causes a rush in your chest and a noticeable increase in your heartbeat. The tragedy of knowing that your crush might not reciprocate your feelings fills you with depression and hopelessness. All you can do is fantasize about your crush becoming a part of your life, of linking your experiences with theirs, of assimilating their magical existence into your mundane world.

Having a crush is a euphoric, desperate, compulsive state of being. It is truly a life-affirming experience.
