What is a crush?
Knowing what is a crush is very important so you do not confuse what you are feeling. It is always important to know what you are feeling especially when it comes to romantic emotions. A crush is an infatuation with someone. In other words I like to say it is a strong attraction with some one that causes obsession or infatuation. A crush is normally referred to a short term feeling but let be honest here, there are crushes that can also be long term. There are some crushes that never dies whether it be a celebrity, fictional or even childhood crushes for example that we never grow out of.
Identifying your feelings
Difference between Crush and Attraction- Being attracted to someone or finding someone attractive is different from having a crush on them. Being attracted to some is not as deep as having a crush on someone. Attraction takes in to consideration that you like something about the person whether is being a physical quality they possess or their personality but you like it and you’re drawn to it. However attractions can lead to a crush or be a crush but some attraction just aren’t strong enough to be considered a crush. There are lot of person that you see and find them attractive and that they have a lots of good quality yet you are not infatuated with them or have a slight obsession with wanting to be with them when an attraction reach that point it is considered a crush. A Crush take into account Attraction towards the person, but Attraction not being strong enough is not a Crush.
Difference between Crush and Admiration- Having admiration towards someone is not the same as you having a crush on them. When you have a crush on someone you will admire a lot of things about them hence why you have a crush because of the quality that they have that you admire and find attractive. There are a lot of persons that have quality that you admired but you do not have a crush on them such as a friend, school mate, co-worker, acquaintance or even a stranger but you do not have a romantic or sexual desire towards them in a sense you want to be in a relationship with them. It is important that you know to differentiate between having an admiration for someone and having a crush on someone so you are not confuse and end up in any situation you will regret after.
Difference between Crush and Obsession- Having a crush is an infatuation or an obsession with someone in a romantic way. However there are some obsession that you can have towards someone that is not considered a crush. There may be a quality, talent or skill that someone possess that you are impress with that causes an obsession and remember an obsession is not necessary a bad thing, as long as it is a good harmless kind of obsession. Example of certain obsession that may not be a crush is when it comes to celebrities you may just be obsess with how they look or their talent or skill but do not have a crush on them so you turn out to be a big fan of them but you do not have a crush on them. There are different quality that person have that you may be obsess with to find out more or just being around them because of it but it doesn’t evoke romantic feelings. When you are obsess with someone in a romantic way and you find them attractive and you want to be with them that is a crush.
Difference between Crush and Love- Being in Love with some and having a crush on someone is two different thing through have very simple emotions at work. Loving someone is deeper and stronger also last longer in most cases than having a crush on them in other words it is the level above having a crush on someone. There is a deeper sense of attraction, infatuation, obsession and admiration when you are in love. There are countless definition of what Love is and how to tell if you’re in love. Check out my other two blog post that explain that http://infiniteemotions.com/2020/06/what-is-love/ and http://infiniteemotions.com/2020/06/areyouinlove/.Crushes can lead to love but love cannot lead to a crush.
