Disclaimer: Today is one of those days where I have a to-do-list longer than most people’s sense of humor so I’ve decided to blog. My boss or other boss where I volunteer might think me incompetent- Don’t you have pending things to do?!- but this ‘me’ time is curved out the ‘lunch time’ allocated by HR that I will not be having because we sometimes work and eat at the same time. And today is one of those sometimes-es.
Wah! Death to grammar on this post. DEATH!!! XD
Moving on… this might get me heat from the man my dad thinks will bring him cows (and my little brother a Vitz) but hey, let’s all keep an open mind.
I’ve always understood crush to equal romantic but I thank Wiki How for telling me that there are different types. Yes people, all good pieces begin with good(ish) research. As it turns out, even the Urban dictionary agreed with me: “a burning desire to be with someone who you find very attractive and extremely special.”
These people, like Alaine, you will sing thinks like ‘let’s make love, I can see you want a baby so let’s make one’ [paraphrased]. I know this song because I spent 2 and a half hours getting to town yesterday and that sort of music was playing. In short, a crush makes you crazy, shy, giddy, giggly, stupid, pathetic, stalker-psycho, annoyed, killer-the works.
But thank heavens for the truth!
So romantic crushes can either be an infatuation that sets sail to What The Hell Land once the ‘r’ and ‘l’ challenge becomes real. Or it could be that you really like him or her and end up saying things like, “I don’t wanna have babies but I could have yours if you want.” Yes people, I have said that to a man once.
Daddy, if you read this, let’s NOT talk about this later. Thanks.
This post is not about that type of crush but one that I’ve come across recently, thrice. I’d like to call it the mature version of knowing your place in life! The below aptly explains what I mean.
So what I have is a friendly crush.
“OMG Maureen, those don’t exist!”
To all those who say that to people like me, there is a special place for you in hell and the devil is currently roasting the pieces of wood he’ll use on you.
You are those people that make people like me second guess themselves and end up doing schupid things because we think we actually like said person. To prove that we don’t like said person, we will change, and when we change, suddenly you use the evidence against us like, ‘See! Look, you are even doing this differently!’
And this marks the death of any hopes of a friendship because said person will be like, ‘Yo! They’s creepy!’ and it is ALL YOUR FAULT!
So, you, before you wreck friendships, here’s a few things you need to understand.
1) I will not call this frush (friendship crush) to randomly say ‘heeyyyyy’ and add smiley faces after that. I am sure they will come to mind when I bump into them or when they communicate or if I need something.
2) If I start hanging out with them, it probably just means they are good company. No one cries ‘incest!’ when you hang out with your favorite cousin from the other gender. Yes, I went there.
3) Don’t ask me how Xy is doing. I don’t know. Would you like his number so that you can ask? But last time he was functioning fine. Not unless he has a cancer or an aneurism waiting to take him out that he didn’t tell me about.
“But wait, it could be a passing crush, a passing romantic crush!”
*Stays still to feel relevant organs*
“Why has this blog post seem so angry Maureen?”
No idea. I think the denial of my work load ended halfway through the post *wails* or I am just the angry human being you all think I am (refer to first line).
Final word from Wiki How
“The Outgoing Reaction: Do you suddenly feel the urge to tease your potential crush? When he/she is around, do you get the sudden urge to talk a lot because you want his/her attention? These are all symptoms of a crush as well. Just make sure that you don’t make your crush uncomfortable if you act this way–try not to tease him/her too much or he/she might not want to hang out with you.”
