How To Get Rid of A Crush

By Subodh / July 13, 2010

We have all had crushes at some point in our lifetimes and it is easy to understand how you just can’t get enough of the object of your affection. Sometimes crushes are great and it gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling inside and it’s great if your crush likes you back. The problem comes in where you fall for somebody who you can’t be with. The good news is that if you have a crush you want to get rid of you can.

A crush is a crush is a crush

A crush is great to have when it involves light feelings and butterflies, and it is important to remember that it is just a crush. Some people start to obsess over their crushes or confuse those feelings with deep and undying love. This can be detrimental to your own emotional well being and can lead you to do things that you wouldn’t otherwise have done, just to get your crush’s attention. So as long as you aren’t acting on your feelings then you should be fine.

Let it be

You can’t control how you feel and more often than not it is not good to try and bury it because it will just manifest in other ways. Having a crush is normal and the best thing to do is to let it run its course and it will subside eventually. You may even decide to have a friendship with your crush and get to know them better. You may even end up with a new friend.

When is it wrong?

Not all crushes are sweet and innocent, and there are a number of occasions where it should not exist. If you are already in a relationship then you will do best to forget about the person you think you may have a crush on. Similarly if your crush is already in a relationship you shouldn’t try and mess that up for your own needs. If the crush is taking up way too much of your time or if you are obsessing about them then it is definitely wrong.

Get to know other people

You met your crush by networking and socialising, and it is the perfect way to get rid of them. Hang out and meet new people. This may lead to a good distraction or it may even lead you to a whole new crush that you can pursue a relationship with.
