What age did you get your first crush? And not on a celebrity or when you were 5 and thought you liked someone but now you realise that wasn’t real. I mean when did you get your forts real crush, where all you wanted was to go out with them or for them to just talk to you. Because I’m 15 (girl) and I’ve never really liked anyone

I got my first crush when I was 11 and actually ended up dating said crush for a couple of months. But it's okay not to be particulary attracted to anyone, not everyone is. You just have to wait for someone to peak your interest and not to rush into anything.

I had a crush on the same guy from the ages of 9-14 so maybe that counts? It was a long term crush but he’s not important in my mind at all now. I’d say my first proper crush, where it felt genuine was when I was 15. Don’t worry about not feeling attracted to anyone yet, you will feel that when you meet the right person.

my first real crush had been on and off since I was 14 and still this day it keeps coming back. I’m currently trying to get over this person 😫 it’s not like we were together his was just really hot popular and smart... and tall ( which is gd coz its hard to find someone taller than me) We were not in the same friendship group at all but at prom he was really flirty and I caught real feelings for him (age16) and after that he was really weird and kept avoiding me but was always staring at me from a distance. Could any of u think of why he suddenly started acting weird? I thought it was because I’m not popular and he was embarrassed but idkkkk :/

i was in year 3 when i had my first proper crush i think. it was on one of my best friends at the time and it was the whole thing like getting nervous around them and stuff. it lasted for the whole of primary school lol and it only went away because we grew apart in secondary school. haven’t had a proper crush on anyone since.

it was an on going crush from 12-15. We finally got together when i was 14, dated for like a week, then broke up on my 15th birthday. I can honestly say it was one of the best days of my life. And now we're just friends, also it turns out he was gay but didn't realise it so...

First proper crush at 14, we dated for 3 weeks, a success in my eyes.

I did 'like' a girl in year 8, asked her out and nearly fainted, Hyperventilating walrus is the best way to describe it.

Like year 9... Didn't have the balls to say anything to her though, and she was two years below me, two years seems like a much bigger age gap at that age.
Personal ramble:


Spoiler:
Show
Saw her a few times in secondary, but usually only going to classes, I never seemed to see her during any actual free time and never really had much of an opportunity to talk to her, or her brother (who was in the year above). After sixth form, I end up working in a warehouse because I kept getting turned down because of a "lack of experience", I kinda liked it there so I stuck around a bit, though there were plenty of times where I was prepared to say f*ck it and walk out, but I decided to stick it out nonetheless. In some crazy turn of events, who shows up 2 years later? The same girl... I wasn't completely aware it was her (I had my suspicions mind you) but those same feelings I had came straight back. I got to know her a bit and those feelings only got stronger.
The company went tits up a few weeks after we started talking and the agency I was with pull out so I reached out to keep in touch and get to know her some more which ultimately led to me having to physically go out and leave a note on her car. As luck would have it, I just happen to drive up her street every now and again, I wasn't stalker her to find out were she lived if that's what it sounds like. She said she wasn't interested in continuing anything on from work with the people she worked with (I don't feel like she was bullsh*tting me, she seems like an honest person, and she always kept to herself at work).
We had a bit of back and forth and I saw it wasn't really going anywhere but told her how I feel on the off chance that she might consider giving things ago, but she was adamant about her decision. It's a shame really, she seems like an all-around decent person and certainly one of the more understanding people I've come across in my life. Nothing against the friends I already have, but I have to say I enjoyed being around her more than most people I've hung around with, and I felt like I could trust her and just be myself right from the off (which is very unusual for me). Did I f*ck up by not saying anything back in school? Maybe. I know that if I stayed back a year at sixth form (which, given my situation wasn't exactly out of the question) she would've been in lower sixth and we might have had an opportunity to actually meet before we did. With her presumably being single (never mentioned a boyfriend, not even after I told her how I feel about her, so I can only assume she's single), and with Valentine's day coming up, maybe she might feel a bit jealous of people who are in a relationship or something and give things a shot... One can hope I guess but I'm not counting on it.
Maybe she'll change her mind a bit down the line? *shurgs* you usually lose a lot of friends after you leave school, and she doesn't seem to have many friends anyway. But as I've said, I'm not counting it.


I've found that I'm much the same way as you tbh OP... Sure, I've had feelings for one or two other girls, but my feelings for this specific girl have been stronger than than they have for any other, I'd say the others were just feelings, whereas this specific girl is a full blown crush. I mean, it isn't just her looks that I like. Granted, if I'm realistic, she's no 9 or 10, maybe a 6 or a 7 at best (although I'm not a particularly big fan of this whole numbers rating thing). I feel like it's her personality and the general vibe she gives off which pulls me in just that bit more. You know? She's a great person to be around.

But yeah... I'm 21, I've come across a few people who I've had some feelings for, but only one person who I'd say was a full blown crush.

First crush, 12 or so. She was cute and I liked her smile.

First proper crush, 15. She was beautiful and funny and good company and an amazing hugger. I had feelings for her and asked her out, she said no.

First time I fell properly in love, 16. She was a classmate, and she quickly came to mean the world to me. I fell irretrievably for her, and now - at 29 - I still feel the same for her. Nothing ever happened though.
