Top Ten Hardest Things About Having a Crush

From your first love in third grade, to your prom date in high school, these are the worst things about crushes

The Top Ten


I liked my friend for two years and eventually got so overwhelmed by my feelings for her I told and now she wont look at me while talking to me

Ah yes. I have a crush on the hottest boy in town. So many other people like him, like one of my friends. I don't blame her, but he dosen't like her. I, however a considered "Hot" and have at least 7 boys with crushes on me. I am friends with my crush, and so yeah but he rejected me more in a friend way! We were playing a game during recess and he kicked me and two more kids out.

I have this crush. Me and him never really talk, but I love him. I look up to passing him in the hallways. We both glance at each other the same time, and we both quickly look away. Last year, I was dead sure he had a crush on me, but now I don't know because we don't have any classes. Whenever I'm around him, he acts cool and it's cute. I didn't even tell my friends about this, even when we are playing truth or dare and I choose truth and they tell me who is my crush. I tell them I don't have one. I'm scared they will tell him. We both are alike. We are smart, indians, funny, and so on. I love him so much. Someone tell me what I should do!

I like him but I never talked to him cause I was nervous and he always look and smile at me.
i didn't know what do do so I just send him a note I like him...

Attracting every boy/girl, except for the one you like

That's so true. When I was 10 I liked this 1 guy from my neighborhood & in the end, his little brother ended liking me, which is very annoying.

Mmm. that's me for sure. I'm condiered an atrative girl. I don't even put on make up or dress nice (big t-shirts and shorts whenever possible. if not pants) and I have messy short hair and I and really rude and competitive. I think boys have easier times talking to me then other girls because I hang out with more moys then girls. Boys ar always asking me if they wanna play games at recess with me and I find out they like me soon.

I had these two kids fighting over me when I sat at the same table as both of them, next to one and across from the other. I don't know why they thought they were being so subtle and clever, but they weren't. I also fail to see why they thought any of their tactics would work, like saying in their coolest voice how sure they were they would end up with me, or how I would become some smoking goth person if I went with the other, but to all you guys out there, IT WON'T WORK. Then I have these other two kids who have a crush on me who... don't understand boundaries. It's really annoying and I'm just trying to not fail school, I have no interest in dating at only twelve years old.

Yeah, like in 4th grade and 7th grade. These girls go after me like wannabe Directioners go after Harry Styles. It's crazy, and also invading your privacy. And it's not even the girl you like. But, to be honest, it does teach you a lesson. If your obsessing over a girl or a guy, now you feel the other side of the argument.

Friend Zoned

My mega crush friend zoned me so now we're friends and I don't like him anymore. I'm just gonna wait

I just want to be friends with the person I have a crush on.

If I could overcome my shyness,i could probably get my crush.

I have a crush on my hot friend.


Oh gosh! My "friend"enemy has never mentioned ever having crush! And then we both met this guy...
She clearly has a crush on him!

Competing over the same person. I'm a girl and like this girl has a crush on this one boy who has a crush on me(His friends told me that) and they're all like see if he likes me and I'm like okay and I ask him and he's like "Ew no they're ugly!" and I say that he likes me and she's like "Oh it's on" and now even though I'm not in this, I'd have a way higher chance then her

This is usually what happens when guys go after a popular girl or something: they fight, to the death almost. Most of them never get to talk to their crush, since they're just fighting for it. Although many wars are caused by money, different beliefs, land, resources, and greed, I'd say that lust is the most powerful cause. In the Iliad, a great Greek war story by Homer, whole cities are destroyed, for one woman: Helen of Troy.

Yeah, like a lot of girls like my crush. Good thing a lot of them are moving haha, but I'll actually miss Reese *sigh*

Accepting that he/she doesn't like you

There is this guy that I have liked for ages now. The thing is, he hates me. He always has hated me, and he always will. But I can't get over him, no matter what I do. He knows I like him, and he calls me obsessed over him. I'm not though. My friend makes it seem like I am, by always going up to him and talking to him about me. That's all they talk about together: me. I'm mainly mad about this whole thing because he won't even say it to my face! He has talked to my friend and my friend alone about this. It sucks. What I have to thank is that he isn't popular. Therefore, not many people know about this. I wish I could talk to him, but I know I can't. I have tried countless times and I can't. I've accepted he doesn't like me, but for some reason I always have hoped...

It's so hard! I take every little interaction sh has with me as something significant.

A Few Girls Don't Like Me Either Because Of My Teeth Or Because I'm Short

That's not going to be hard for me since I'm use to it


So my crush likes my best friend and my best friend likes him and once my crush asked me if I knew about him and my bff and I'm like uh yeah. All he said was he was surprised I didn't tease him about it. I was dying on the inside.

I feel that all the time! Whenever someone touches my crush, I feel jealousy.

My best bro is really really good friends with my crush, so you know, it's hard for me.

I'm immune to it


I'm very shy and quiet. Talking to people takes a lot of effort I find. (Not very helpful when I have a crush) It took me a year to talk to him.
(He is just as shy as me)
A whole year.
Even then I had to come up with things to say beforehand. (I had a mental list of topics)

The day I talked to him:
(That morning I decided: this afternoon I will talk to him at our sports practice. I will no matter what. I will ask him about a class we both have)
I just ignored the fact that I felt like my throat was closing up, that I felt like vomiting, that my heart was beating so hard I could feel my heartbeat in every limb, and that my not risky brain was yelling at me to stop and sprint in the other direction.
I took a deep breath, marched over, and said something. And he said something back!
I felt like I had just gotten 100% on a test, or just won a race.
And then there was the day when he started a conversation with me! I literally could not stop smiling after ...more

Look, it's hard to talk to someone that gives you butterflies in your stomach. And there's those "what ifs"
What if he/she rejects me? What if he/she thinks I'm ugly? It's sometimes hard to get over your fears. However, how do you know that your crush hates you, if he/she hasn't told you yet? You shouldn't cry before talking to him/her, when, it's possible that they like you back.

For three terms, I've been trying to get the courage to talk to her, and ask her out, but I have gotten practically nowhere.

As log as I can remember I have always been the shy and quiet kid, the nerd, you name it. It's hard enough for me to start a conversation with other girls in my school, let alone my crush..

Seeing your crush "having a thing" with a bully

A bully that beat you up and harassed you millions of times. It's really heartbreaking.

They could be friends with jerks, which also sucks.

I know the feeling. I have the biggest crush on someone who hangs out with a boy who's bullied me for years (I kid you not, he's bullied me since elementary school and hasn't gotten bored of it).

*heart shatters into a thousand pieces*


This only happens if you're lucky enough to get to third base. But still, it's influenced many people's lives. It's really hard to let go. Plus, the Bible states that people should be in a happy, eternal relationship, which is much better than breaking up every 6 months, like Taylor Swift.

This should be number 2 on the list. The best girlfriend I had broke up with me because of a rumor that came from her sister because her sister liked me. I'm still not over the brake up, and its been 2 years since she broke up with me. And I'm still not over it. :(

Why middle school relationships are pointless. You get a "date", but only for about 3 weeks, then you break up and find a new one. It goes on forever!

At least you got to date for some time

Getting his/her attention without making a complete fool of yourself

Oh, crud! I do this a lot! Once, we were going to the library, and I put a pencil on my ear. I was holding a ton of stuff. Then, I said I was doing this to be "wise."
Are you kidding me!

I was preaching in front of my crush.

Oh, crud! I do this a lot!

I wouldn't recommend saying "damn the tories, Corbyn for life".

The Contenders

It probably won't last

Mine didn't last after graduating I still had a crush for a few months then it eventually ended

Everyone goes separate ways after high school. Your crush could be the next Beyonce or living in a dumpster. Your classmates would be spread out across the world. It's possible to make it last, you know, by calling him/her and stuff, but you sometimes have to let go.

With a negative attitude like that you won't get far in life when it comes to dating. If you already think that it won't last before you can date the guy / girl, you never will. The opposite attitude " I can and I will succeed " will give you the challenge to fight for what you desire.

Yeah, that's sad.

When your crush/you are moving schools.

This happened to me in highschool. The girl I had a crush on moved to another school. The worst part is the way I learned about it, I had to go see the principal about one of my classes and when I got to the office, I heard her talking about her transfer to another school. It made me sad, because she was the only girl that I felt comfortable talking to without even knowing her much.

Oh my gosh this is what is happening with me. I've been going to the same school as my crush since first grade. She is one of my best friends. We are both going to 7th grade now, and we're going to different middle schools. It makes me feel INFURIATED. Originally we were supposed to meet up again in High school and we were originally going to that same school, but now she's moving to another CITY. Now she might not go to the same high school as me! NOW I'M ONLY GOING TO GET TO SEE HER ON BREAKS! GAHHH! So those of you, reading this, know that you aren't alone and other people (myself included) are going through this pain! I know, it's really painful, it kills me every second I'm not with her! The best thing to do is just talk to someone about it. It's still gonna be pretty crappy having to accept this, but talking about it will hopefully make you feel just a bit better about the situation. It sucks even more if you have my problem and your crush is a friend of yours. This means losing ...more

This happened to me so I know the incredible pain

Hello from the other side, crush


I am constantly accused of having a girlfriend when I am just friends with a girl. Geez.

As I mentioned, many of my crush's classmates ganged up on me. You might wanna watch out for this.

This happened to me and confused me like heck! I was rly good friends with this one boy and had a crush on another who I’m not even friends with. My friends started accusing me of having a crush on the boy who I was friends with even though they knew I had a crush on the guy I wasn’t friends with. That night I could barely fall asleep bcs I got so confused!

When he/she disappears

This happened to me...

I'd Just Get A New One...


I imagined what it'd be like if my crush died and I wojld be depressed for life. I would just quit preaching and dling my prophetic ministry and pray that God will take my life, so I don't have to feel this way. I won't commit suicide, but I'd be depressed and would wish to just disappear until the time of judgement comes.

Keeping it a secret

This was kinda hard I a few people I knew but I never did when she was around

So I had a crush on this boy in seventh grade, I kept it a secret for about 10 months. The only person I told was my BFF Isabella, she said she would not tell anyone. But on May 10th 2018, we were taking a practice test until Isabella decided to write on her paper "Micaela Likes You" and showed it to him. He was shocked and was just like "Why didn't you tell me? ". In Eighth Grade, he came up to me and asked me out, I said yes and to this day in 2019 we are still dating.

There's this boy who I really like. All of my friends say I should date him and they don't even know I like him. And I don't want to tel anybody.

Worst thing is if someone tell them that you have a crush on them or they suddenly hear it from you

Seeing your crush with one of your friends

I had a few friends that were friends with my crush I saw them talk to her or something

Not many things make my blood boil as much as seeing my crush with one of my friends does. It triggers me to even see her with ANOTHER BOY, regardless if I even know him or not. My best friend used to have a crush on her but he's moved on ( thank god) and it STILL pisses me off when he even goes near her. In fact, recently he and my crush took a picture together, just the two of them. Unfortunately I had to endure watching that. I tell you, only reason I didn't RKO him right then and there was that he no longer had feelings for her. Still it was Hell to watch

I saw my friend that I known for 5 years then my ex I known for 3 years went out with each other then I talked to my friend about it. I made him brake up with her

One of my best friends for 11 years was dating my crush, and I was a third wheel...

Being way too afraid to talk

I had this with my crush I was always afraid to talk or go up to her, sometimes a teacher that knew her well helped me talk to her

I also had this happen as well, I was afraid to talk to my crush, and was nervous to go up to her, I always was scared she would get mad at me or say go away or something rude, I also had a substitute teacher that was like family to her and sometimes she help me talk to my crush

Yeah I had this with my crush I always wanted to talk by myself and I would be always to nervous to go up to her and talk to her I was always nervous she would get upset or something, and the only way I talked was with a substitute teacher

I was once in a 2nd grade class with my ex-crush. We haven't been in the same class for 3 years. But I am in her class right now and we are right next to each other in seats. I'm not afraid to talk to her cause she's funny and is nice.

When you think they like you and then you see them with another person

The main reason I liked him is because he seemed to change and become friendly to me. I thought he had a crush on me for a long time until in seventh grade he suddenly stuck up to this girl, and I am just heartbroken and jealous and realized he never really cared about me and he only ever talks to that other girl

Yep R likes me I think I like him I think... But J is a s%~ flirts with everyone and is a know it all! Now I think he likes HER!

I have had a crush on this boy named Arturo forever, in one of my classes he does everything possible to make me laugh and he blinks his eyebrows at me. until one unexpected day I saw him with this girl named Itzayana, My eyes were filling with a Pacific Ocean of tears, I bet the only reason he likes her is because she has the stupid IPhone X. And my friend Tatiana said “He likes Itzayana” and I was like why because she thinks she’s the hottest kid in class”, she said “Well I have to say Itzayana is very pretty”. I ran back home and used up 15 boxes of tissues

This is horrible. It truly sucks.
I have a guy I like; we've talked a few times, have a lot in common, and are very similar in personality. He leans in when we talk and stares into my eyes. I've also caught him staring at me during classes.

Then one day...
I see a girl with her arms wrapped around him, and he is just standing there. He and I made awkward eye contact. I rush out with my friend.

I found out that she is his girlfriend! However, they are apparently an 'on again off again' couple.

That was not a very nice day.

Feeling weird when you see him/her

Oh so awkward...

True. Very true for me. And I hate it when she is near ANY boy. And now she has a boyfriend. :(

When you aren't friends and she barely knows you

That's like me now. But I'm gonna try and talk to him

She knows me and we are friends

Trust me it’s the WORST! And it’s not like he doesn't want to be friends with me, I’ve just never actually talked to him bcs I’m always too scared! I rly rly rly just want to be friends with him, but it doesn't help that I rarely see him more than once every five months or so! Plus I think he has a girlfriend now.😭"

Making it less obvious that you have a crush

I did it to the point where even my best friend didn't see it coming

I always glance in her direction
It's really hard not to

Asking her/him out

LISEN! Your scared of asking them out! End your waiting them to ask you out! That's NOT going to work. Their are scared too! Your not the only 1 that. Do that! Be BRAVE!

This is the hardest!

I never can

When they don't give you a second chance
Finding out they're taken

Oh. My. Gosh. Yes. That is so me rn. Since I’m not completely positive that they’re together I have a tiny glimmer of hope that they don't have a relationship.
The only thing is that my glimmer of hope is probably wrong. She was leaning on his shoulder, his head was on hers. She and he were constantly hugging. Not likely that she’s not his girlfriend. :/

Trusting your friends about it

This can be difficult. They are your friends, and they can offer advice, or they can just bother you.

I like this guy, and after my friends relentlessly trying to pry it out of me, I told them who. (Bad idea! )

In the halls when we passed him this is what would happen:
Friend 1: (stops in the middle of the hall) "oh look! Isn't that him? "
Friend 2: "Where? "
Friend 1: "there! " (Points)
Friend 3: "who? "
Friend 1: "her crush! "
Friend 3: "where? "
Friend 2: "there! " (points)
Me: shhh! (Tries to switch topics. Gives up. Pretends I forgot something at my locker, and leaves)

Or another day,
Friend 1: " do you know what time the event will be at? "
Me: no, I'll let you know if I find out though
Friend 2: "isn't your crush going to the event? "
Me: "yes"
Friend 2: "go ask him what time? He's right there! " (Grabs my arm and steers me in that direction. Chants "be brave! ")
Me: (awkwardly asks my crush about the ...more

So far, I've had no problems with this, but one of them came really close to giving it away when we were RIGHT NEXT TO the girl I like the other day.

You literally can't, unless your friend is at another school.

Someone told me, but it didn't work I:
