Who Was Your First Crush?

According to Oxford Languages Dictionary,  a crush is “A brief but intense infatuation for someone, especially someone unattainable.”

 It’s the one person you dream about every night—the one you can’t wait to see the next day.

Everyone has had a crush at some point in their life.

The sad thing is that your crush doesn’t even know you exist in most cases.

You are sort of like what the pop group 98 Degrees describe as the “Invisible man”, or “woman”.

All you can do is watch them laughing with their friends, making a move on someone else, or maybe you only see them passing by, and you don’t even know their name.

It’s crazy that most have even had a crush on someone who despises them.

Despite all that, a crush can be a beautiful thing. Why do I say this? I mean, it is annoying and quite painful to be into someone who doesn’t even care.

But you always feel butterflies flying inside every time you are around that someone, or as they walk past you.

You get so nervous around them, your heart skips a beat, you get weak, get goosebumps, and there’s a warm feeling inside your heart that lushes throughout your body.

Honestly, these are beautiful feelings I would love to experience again.

Interestingly, some people happen to have a crush on each other, unknowingly.

 I remember my high school years, and I had this huge crush on a guy who was like 10 years my senior. That’s absurd, right?

Years went by, and long story short, it turned out he had always had a huge crush on me.

So, as I was busy telling myself that he was too mature to notice me, he was thinking to himself that he was too old for me. We ended up dating and the rest is history.

Some people have had the courage to confess their feelings to their crush, and while some don’t work out, others end up dating.

What are some of the experiences people have had with their first crush?

“Shockingly I had my first crush in the 7th grade. His name is Matt, he never knew. I was shy and afraid to tell him. I never experienced having a crush before him. I’m still like that to this day, except I am not terrified anymore.”

“This girl named Olivia, she was cute and all, but… I’m glad I never dated her, in hindsight.”

“My first crush was my oldest friend, Mia. I loved her from the moment I was old and aware enough to develop emotional attachments to people. And yes, she knew about my feelings for her. She returned them, and we were together for a while. We still fool around together whenever she visits.”

“My first crush is Donald Earl R. Brooks, still remember his whole name even if it’s already a long time ago, his my crush when I was in grade school and I wonder where he is now.”

“When I was 8 I had a crush on this boy on my bus that sat in my seat and sat next to me on the bus…we became boyfriend and girlfriend then broke up the next day. This was 8 years ago. Now I am 16 and not single.”

I had a crush in middle school on this kid named Gabriel. Thought he was super cute and we were in a class together. Puberty hit me hard in all sorts of ways and I got awkward, so me and my pizza face never said anything.”

“My husband. We met in Kindergarten. I was his first crush too. Everybody (family, relatives, teachers, neighbors) could tell!…We became friends in Jr-Sr High. Bf-gf relationship in our 20s. Engaged for 2 years. Married for more than a decade now. There are so many sweet memories!”

Girl in my fourth grade class when I lived on a military base. I thought she was cute. One night I went to the base swimming pool at night and she was there. She pushed me against a wall in the pool and kissed me. Haven’t forgot that moment.”
