7 Thoughts You Have When You Have A Crush

7 Thoughts You Have When You Have A Crush

Are there any red flags?

I mean I don’t know about you, but I haven’t really had that many crushes in college. Well, I’ve liked people but it hasn’t been the head over heels and butterflies in your stomach crush that you had in middle school. It’s been "this boy likes me because this" or "I like him because of that." Only a few instances have felt super special like "Man, this is the one for me" type of special. Until recently, I haven’t felt the long lasting spark with anyone, so here are seven thought you have when you have a cute crush on someone.

1. The famous “Does he like me??!”

Yes, girl, he does like you so stop worrying and love yourself.

2. Is he going to post that picture of us or should I?

Because we all know that Instagram pic official is the new Facebook official.

3. Are his parents going to like me? Are they going to like my parents?

Does he even want me to meet his parents? His parents are going to think I’m a hellion for sure. OH, man.

4. What if he finds out that I used to be a One Direction fangirl?

OK, their last album is a bop and “Sign of the Times” is my freaking jam so I’m basically still a fangirl and it’ll eventually come out at some point.

5. Do I tell him I like him or do I play it cool?

I mean this is a legit question because some people are straight up with their feelings and sometimes just outright saying you like someone will scare them off.

6. He is so cute like wow and so nice double wow

I mean there are a lot of a**holes out there, so when you find one that treats you right and isn’t a weirdo it’s a win. No more Ls for this gal.

7. WAIT, are there any red flags?

OK, he’s pretty normal, I think we’re chill.

College is a weird time for liking people, having crushes or dating. If you like him, go for it because it’s college and it’s your time to live it up!!

Just Because I Check My Boyfriend's Location Every Hour Doesn't Make Me A 'Psycho Girlfriend'

No, checking his location every hour does not make me psycho.

My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other for a few months now. He has come up with describing my actions sometimes as “psycho girlfriend.” As much as this bothered me at first I started to realize there is nothing wrong with my “psycho” actions.

I don’t monitor who my boyfriend hangs out with and I don’t care who he texts, I trust him, but I do watch other things he does.

I probably check his location about once an hour, maybe more if he isn’t texting me back.

This isn’t some way for me to find out if he is with another girl, it’s so I can ensure he isn’t dead in a ditch somewhere. If he was on Snapchat five minutes ago but hasn’t texted me back in 45 minutes, yeah I’ll call him out on it but I'm not actually mad. If he is with friends and not answering me, it’s cool. I just want to be able to make sure I know where he is and that he is alive on a regular basis.

I make him keep his read receipts on for me.

I don’t care if he leaves me on read, I just need to know he is seeing what I’m saying. Half the time, I text him random facts or thoughts I have throughout my day, those don’t always need a response back. However, I do want to know he is acknowledging me through reading my texts.

Yes, from time to time I will spam him and make him respond to my messages so we can make plans or I can know what he is doing with his day but it’s not like I plan out his every move for him or care if he is getting drunk with the boys on a Wednesday, not my issue.

I don’t ask for all of his time or anything. I know he is a busy person. All I ask for him to text me back on a regular basis (once an hour to be exact), for him to allow for me to know where he is at all times and to get one night a week with him.

I don’t plan to show up where he is or anything, I simply just like to know information and get a weekly time with him. I don’t care if I only see him that one night a week, I just want one night with a movie or dinner or snuggles so I can get my boyfriend time.

The rest of the time he is his own person, and I couldn’t really care less about what he does in that time.
