A School Girl's Guide To Crushes

Updated: Sep 28, 2020

Everyone's had a crush before maybe once or twice but we never really look at the psychological side of crushes, so today I will show you that psychology behind crushes. Did you know that when you have a crush on someone, your brain overlooks any flaws the person has, causing them to appear perfect in your mind also did you know that crushes last about 4 months and your crush sees you as 20% more attractive than you think you are? Psychologically speaking, crushes occur when a person of any age projects their ideas and values onto another person whom they believe possesses certain attributes and with whom they want to be associated. Then, the person with the crush attaches strong positive feelings to this magical image that they have created. According to experts, most kids will experience their first crush by the age of five or six. And while Kindergarten crushes rarely amount to more than hanging out at recess together, kids at this age may want to act out what they think it's like being in love. If you have a crush which you probably do if your reading this, there's no need to delay. Once you're alone and have made your crush comfortable, you should just tell them how you feel. The sooner you do it, the better, and the less likely you'll be to make yourself more nervous or likely to ramble on about something unrelated. Just be simple and direct. The word crush is to refers to the infatuation someone had for another person. A slang expert named Eric Patridge, suggests that crush might have come from the word mash, which in 1870 was a popular way of saying you were “head over heels in love” and to crush something, was to mash it. You know your crush likes you back If his eyes wander to your mouth, he's interested. If he looks away quickly when you catch him looking, he's probably interested and shy. If you don't like the guy, break eye contact, and continue scanning the room. If he tells a joke or says something funny, his eyes will glance towards you to see if you've laughed. I hope this helped someone.
