We can all go back to a moment where our giddiness reached an all-time high because of a crush. Whether girl or guy, our stages of having a crush are all similar. From noticing their presence to finally exchanging numbers, we all go through the same thing.

Stage 1: Spotting

Somehow, within the blink of an eye you just laid your eyes upon the most attractive specimen. You're staring and can't help to smile and just like that butterflies erupt in the pit of your stomach. Within seconds you've just imagined your entire future with that person by your side.

Stage 2: Tell The Squad

As always, you update your friends on your latest finds and interesting things going on in your life, so you must tell them about the most recent hottie that you have spotted. With your description down to what color they were wearing you let your friends know every detail you can remember. Now your friends are on the lookout for who you have found.

Stage 3: Investigation

Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat. You and the squad are doing whatever you all can to find that person on social media to try and figure their life and how you may somehow have connection with them.

You find them. Then. FOLLOW.

You like about three of their most recent photos and as time goes on they should begin to recognize you as a follower.

Stage 4: OMGOMGOMG You're Going Crazy!

THEY ARE SOOO BEAUTIFUL. Everything they do you can't help but to think how beautiful that person is and how much you want to be a part of their life. You daydream about what you would be doing with that person if you with them right now. Wondering what they smell like, how they feel when you hug them and making up potential dates in the future.

Stage 5: Contact

Now that you've gotten a gauge of who they are and things they like or find funny, it's time to engage. Whether through direct messages or in person, you are ready to take initiative to pursue a conversation with the individual.

Quivering voice and all, you have somehow mustered up enough courage to ask your crush for their number.

Stage 6: HOW DO YOU FEEEEL?

Having a crush is all fun and games until this phase hits. Do you like me? Do want to just be friends? Am I cute, yes or no? Now that you have gotten their number, you're stressing about every message that shows up on your notification panel. Interpreting every 'hey' and every emoji, asking your friends what to say next; your friends words are being sent more than your own!

These phases are all normal and will soon pass. Make sure you don't change yourself for the liking of your crush!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

4003
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11755

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
