How do you Handle Crushes?


What about crushig on someone you know you aren’t going to marry? Or celebrities? And can you like someone who is dating someone else?


No offense, but how old are you?


I realize that crushes are emotions and that my emotions do not control my actions.


Yes, and practice chaste love.


Yes and yes. I know I’m still attracted to one of my exes (and she is married). I also know not to go beyond that. You solve that problem by finding someone else. Most of my friends are female, so sometimes this is a pertinent topic for me.
