  1. Discover – Discovery is the first stage of having the crush. In this stage it is not always where you realized or discover that you have a crush on the person however in this stage is where you discover the person existence. When you first meet or saw the person and it is normal that at this point you may start feel the attraction and start to admire the person as some crush happen instantly while some don’t. The discovery state is very unpredictable where you know about the person existence which you may instantly develop the crush and know that you have one or end up being confuse with what you are feel or you may not notice anything and the crush develop after there are different scenarios that can take place.


It is always good in this stage if you find yourself feeling the attraction and admiration for the person to always remain calm and collected, asset what you are feeling. Based on what you have conclude if you want you can do something that is a little subtle but let them notice you so they too are aware of your existence. If you are bold enough you can approach them and have a small conversation center around something light hearted like a common interest for example if you’re at an event around something specific or an simple introduction.


  1. Denial or Acceptance – After knowing about the person and realizing you have some feelings toward them. Some person may go in a state of denial where they do not want to accept they have a crush on the person for whatever reason they do not want to, maybe because it is forbidden or they are off limit or they do not think they that they person will like them back. There can be a lot of different reason why someone may go in a state of denial and not want to accept what they are feeling.

For some person they do not go it to denial they are more straight forward and easier with accepting what their emotions are telling them so the second stage for them is Acceptance where after the discovery stage they accept their feeling towards the person that they have a crush on them. During the denial or the acceptance stage is where you will access what you are feeling. Most person during this stage will think of the cons and the pros of what they are feeling.
