A crush is a powerful little vial of pure feeling…the longing, the push and pull. Oh, the yearning!

“A crush that goes nowhere can still be a pleasure unto itself. It's a luxuriously inefficient experience, which is rare in today's goal-oriented dating world.

A crush is beautiful because it's a little unrealistic, because you see the very best in someone even when they're flawed. One might argue that even a casual crush is a bit selfish-a way to project positive qualities onto someone, and to get the glowy excitement that comes with that, without really seeing them in all of their difficult complexity.” ~Excerpt by Faith Hill / The Atlantic
