Top 10 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
1 Getting rejected

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!

You're lucky you can actually tell your crush how you feel! All of my crushes are fictional guys from books, video games, or movies, so they'll never know I exist. The saddest part is, I'm not even shy about my crushes. Whenever I have a real crush (happened to me 3 times), I make sure everyone knows it, even the person I like. Sure, they've never liked me back, but at least I can talk to them. Fictional crushes on the other hand...they're the worst kinds of crushes.

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 was afraid of rejection then I asked this girl out that's nice to me and a few months older than me but she said no cause she already had a boyfriend. then one of my friends keep begging her to go out with me and I keep telling him the same thing. man I was depressed for a few days.

2 Attracting every boy or girl except for the one you like

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.

That legit happens all the time for me. Before I have the chance to ask this girl out another girl comes up and asks me out and I just can't say no.

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.

3 Getting friend-zoned

I told my friend to tell my crush that I liked him... She did and when he talked to me he agreed to be my boyfriend but then the very next day he broke up with me and now I am in the friend zone. So every time we see each other now it is very awkward. Now that I am "friend zoned" I actually don't want to have anything to do with him now. I am heartbroken and sad sometimes I think that I am ugly. Other times I think that nobody else will like me. It has been a year now and still single but I am trying to move past this the best that I can. To everyone else who is going through either rejection, breakup, or friend zoned... Don't be like me and think that nobody else will like you.. move on and accept it there will be another person waiting to fall in love with you. There is a mythical story were there is an invisible red string tied to your ankle and your future lover has the other side of the string tied to his. In the future you will meet your lover who has that other side of the ...more

It's a bummer. "I just wanna be friends," she says. Friends, but not in a relationship. It's kinda like this. In 7th grade, I had a crush on this amazing girl. She was more tolerant than other girls and had a bright personality. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if she wins Miss USA in the 2020s. I tried to talk to her, but some people got angry at me. I was called a "p****," taunted, and told to stop trying. However, I didn't let them affect me. I eventually got support from this Good Samaritan, which boosted my self-esteem. Then, here's the awkward part: this idiot pretended to be me on and wrote something like this, "I wish I could be the one to call you babe," on her account. Then, she said that she had something with someone else but still considered me as a friend. See? I got friend-zoned, and I wasn't even the one talking to her. Life is weird sometimes. But if Ron Weasley can get out of the friend zone, I can too! All of us can! (Unless your ...more

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.

4 Competing

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.

I am about to have a fit of this (good thing I'm on Xmas break) and here is the worst part:The guy that is closest in my class to being a friend of mine has a crush on the girl I have a crush on. Also, we are in different center groups, and she is with my "possible friend" and I'm not, so he has the advantage. The only possible advantage I have is being in the same math group as her.

Kinda true.

When anyone else likes people I like I always get angry at them and accuse them of creeping out the crush.

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!

5 Accepting that they don'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.

He doesn't care bout me...

6 Being jealous

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.

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

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

7 Being too afraid to talk

Yep...this is a big one. I am bisexual, and I fear approaching people I am enamored with for different reasons based on gender. In the case of dating men, I generally am attracted to men who are older than 30. Having this kind of preference as an 18 year old who only became a legal adult four months ago, I tend to not even want to bother looking for a man, because any good guy worth spending my time with will be very weary about dating someone so young, and rightfully so. I'd rather not put a man in that awkward position. In the case of being attracted to a woman, I usually develop feelings for straight girls. There is no point whatsoever in telling a woman that I am attracted to her because it won't go anywhere, and of course I always fear it will ruin our relationship. I have yet to have a "crush" that I actually feel would be a good idea to try amd pursue.

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.

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

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.

8 Seeing your crush "having a thing" with a bully

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).

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

My crush hangs out with the brattiest human in the world. Please say she changes!

I had a boyfriend and he was friends with a fowl mouthed boy.

9 Breaking up

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!

10 Getting their 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!

The Contenders
11 Knowing it probably won't last

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.

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.

Not having to deal with having a crush anymore sounds great. Crushes are creepy and make people act creepy.

Yeah, that's sad.

12 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

Hey my comment from 2017 is still here! by the way I still see the girl I love sometimes, not just on breaks so that's good.

This is kinda weird but I had a crush in kindergarten and he was my boyfriend but he moved schools in 3rd grade so... ;-;

13 Having them leave

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.

This happened to me...

My crush moved away

14 Being harassed over it

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!

15 Keeping it a secret

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.

I confirmed when I was younger than I'm an aromantic asexual and now that it's happening I sorta regret saying it. Only my nephew and God know.

It was all going well, until they forced me to admit.

16 Seeing your crush with one of your friends

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...

Happens but I suck it up

17 Thinking they like you and then you see them with another person

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.

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

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

18 Barely knowing them

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 really 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.

I hate when this happens

19 Feeling weird when you see them

Oh so awkward...

20 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. :/

That is the worst I never asked my crush out, but if I did and she was taken, it would of sucked

21 Asking them 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!

22 Making it less obvious that you have a crush

Very hard. I so hate it. >:0

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

23 Getting confused

It's just so annoying when your crush shows signs of liking you back to, yet they show the same signs towards other people.

24 Your crush's friend not liking you

I had this happen in grade 10, my crush best friend didn't like me! And she would keep dirty looking me and seem upset near me, it was hard to go through, I remember one day I was being bugged by some girl who had crush on me was a different girl, them my crush and her friend were outside, and my crush friend asked me what's wrong? Then never mind something in a rude way, upset me, and it was hard to go by my crush sometimes with her friend around, lucky she quit or moved to a new school after the first week of grade 11 and I was able to go near my crush without her friend dirty looking me or seeming rude.
