    That reinforces my point. The sort of person to 'develop a crush' on somebody without meeting them is either a teenager/inexperienced with relationships, or weird

    You changed your point after I replied to you. Your first point was that the person is weird. Not that the person is a teenager

    Anyway no point arguing - it's clear neither of us will convince the other

    Develop a crush on me based on what though? Surely things like a persons mannerisms, how they articulate themselves (in spoken word), their thoughts, expressions etc all matter? Things you can only really gauge by meeting in person?

    Sorry it just seems ridiculous.

    If I told my family "Oh I have a crush on this girl I saw online because she looks hot in a tiny avatar picture" they'd be seriously worried.
    I think we have different ideas on what a 'crush' constitutes...

    IMO, the point of a crush is that it is purely materialistic, and therefore as little as knowing what someone looks like can lead to a 'crush'.

    Why? Is a crush not simply a form of infatuation, driven materialistically by sexual attraction?

    I think it's pretty normal tbh
    Thank you!!!

    We're not arguing. Just discussing. I didn't change my point as such, just added to it. And teenagers are weird :P

    I think if you make the mistake once then a second or third time in quick succession is likely. we've all done it

    Does anyone know why the anon thread got taken down?
    Probably considered an abuse of the function or some other nonsense.

    What I mean is that there is no spiritual connection. It is based off physical attributes only, rather than there being a deeper meaning than that.

    I think it's very much within human nature to see someone we find attractive, and fantasise, and get carried away.

    But I do agree that it's a little more odd the older you get, because obviously when you're a teen hormones are going just a lil' crazzyyy

    Ask yourself though, do you really care? Having weird people mention you in derpy threads is the kind of validation that you really don't need, and probably shouldn't want :lol:

    But physical attraction goes much further than what somebody looks like, especially via a picture. A picture isn't always an accurate representation of what somebody truly looks like. Some people look quite different in person. For better or for worse.

    The day I develop a TSR crush is the day I'll quit this site and never come back.

    I get what you're saying, but I do think that for some people, having a few conversations with someone online and seeing what they look like is all it takes to feel physically attracted to someone.

    Anyway, you have your opinion and I have mine, so I'll agree to disagree

    It must be so easy for young people with that mentality to get laid, if that's all it takes.

    No, but I'm annoyed because I got tagged and I wanted to interrogate the anon who tagged me
