Too Old For A Crush?

I like you.

As we get older we like to think we have outgrown the awkward phase of secretly being attracted to another person. Sometimes these feelings can be slightly overwhelming and even embarrassing because everyone around you is telling you that you’re being “childish” or you’re too old to be hiding your feelings.

But it’s hard out here for a pimp… So is there such a thing as being too old to have a crush?

Last night on Twitter one of my followers looked to her timeline to find out the opinion of her followers on the topic of secret crushes in your 20s.

She asked questions like “What makes revealing a crush so difficult?” and “Are crushes based purely on physical attraction?”

I was actually surprised to see the amount of responses she got back, mainly because so many people have told me I’m too old to be crushing. It was definitely refreshing to see that many other people of college age were going through the same thing.

Another thing I found interesting was that people were mostly afraid of their crush not having the same feelings, or in other words, REJECTION. This caught my attention because today’s youth and young adults seem to portray a certain “IDGAF” attitude, myself included. So if we don’t care, what’s the big fear? You get rejected and then move on. “No” isn’t that bad, is it?

….I don’t know, that’s for sure.

Anyway, I have another question:

What are the best ways to go about revealing a crush?

I really want to know.

  1. I am in my 20’s and I am having this same problem. Having a crush and being too scared to say anything. It’s quite annoying actually cause I feel like I am back in middle school.


    1. I agree it is definitely annoying. Then there’s also the added fear that if you wait too long, they’ll find someone else and you’ll just be sitting there…upset.


  2. I’m in my 30’s and I think crushes never really get old. I am at a strange place between my marriage ending and wanting to find someone new to maybe just have some fun with? I don’t even know…
    I think if i had a crush on someone I wouldn’t be able to tell them. I’d keep it in, yes, in fear of rejection. :// Kind of sad, but the truth.
