Stupid things people do when they have a Crush

We all have been there at one point in our lives: crushing hopelessly on someone that we are never going to have. Yet that has never stopped us from acting like complete idiots around them and doing things that we know we will cringe about when we look back. Here are the most common and stupid things we do when we have a crush.

Stalk their social media accounts

Since we live in the day and age of social media, this has become something of a mandatory thing that everyone does when they start liking someone. We try to find out every possible thing about the life of our crush through their social media accounts while trying not to like a picture accidentally. Some of us even check when they were last seen online on a certain platform, just to make sure they are good and alive.

Put Snapchat stories up for them

You can try to deny that you have done this as much as you want to, but we all know what the ugly truth is. Each and every person out there is guilty of having put up a story on their Snapchat with the sole purpose that their crush ends up seeing the story. We all want our crush to know that we have a very happening and fun life. If by chance we put up a story and our crush does not end up seeing it, we consider it to be a waste of time.

Talk loudly around them

We all are guilty of doing this very stupid yet oddly satisfying thing: turning into an old aunty from the local train when we are around our crush. We talk at the top of our voices, hoping to attract their attention and to make them listen to what we are saying. We might even try our hands at showing off about something just so that they come and start talking to us about it after that.

Get jealous when they talk to someone from our gender

This is the primary thing that every single person who has had a crush has been guilty of doing. We all have looked on with the great amount of anger and jealousy at the person that our crush is talking to and we have wondered what the nature of their relationship with that other person is. We may have also planned different ways to harm that person who actually dared to go and talk to the person that we are so interested in!

Know their schedule by heart

This is the most stalk-erish yet normal thing that most of us can be accused of having done. We always tend to seek out our crush when they are in the same room as us and the best way to do so is by making sure that we are in the same room as them. We memorize where they will be having their classes at what time and make sure that we accidentally bump into them on the way.

So how many of these things can you admit to having done when you had a crush on somebody?
