First things first, the butterflies. Who even let them in?! They come out of nowhere and will not leave. They're there when you see your crush, listen to him speak, and/or when you're just thinking about him!



We know we like the person but for the sake of our sanity, we deny it. Nope, who has time for it anyways?! You keep telling yourself "it's not a crush," hoping that soon, you'll actually believe it.


Social Media Stalking

How's that denial going? By now, you're already creeping on his every move via his social media accounts. Warning: be very careful not to hit "like" on a photo that was posted weeks ago. I don't think he'd be very into that!


Telling Your BFF

It's time to face it, you have a crush on someone! The social media stalking is getting too hard to handle on your own. So, you tell your BFF (who probably already knew). Now you have someone to help you decipher texts and be your wing woman!


Awkward Mess

Now that you've acknowledged your feelings, seeing your crush in public is, well, scary. You forget how to speak, or even speak too much. You can't remember how to be your cool self because you're too busy being too awkward to function.


He Texts You First

After he realizes how awesome you are (or after your BFF takes over and talks to him), he finally texts you first. YES! He might even ask you out and we all know you're gonna say yes.


Happy Times

Things are finally good! You and your crush are having fun hanging out and it's just a matter of time before you make it official. Took you long enough, huh?!

Of course, there's no certainty on just how long each of these phases will last. I guess that's what makes them so stressful! Can you relate to these phases of having a crush?

Too awkward to function xD

What a juvenile article

I think I have a crush on my cousins friend and he's in his twenties and I'm only a tween

#2 is so true I really liked that guy but denied even giving a care about him

hahaha every single stage is so true

my crush left my school when school started again after spring break. Was it me who made him want to leave? I tried to get to know him then he unfriended me. I did what several websites said to do to get him to notice me and like me back . I glared at him and he glared at me when I wasn't looking a few times. Please give me advice now I have another crush. I have 2 crushes HELP ME

The worst part of a crush is when it's unrequited

Yep. But it never gets to the texting or asking me out part. :-(

They're all dreadful because a crush never lasts for long

This is bullshit that is not how it works
