is it normal to can't stop thinking abt an old crush?

Unread post by el298 »

almost 3 years ago I had a crush on this straight girl (even though i thought/hoped she was pan), it lasted a few months and then it got away since I found out she had a boyfriend.
then I had another crush and a sort of situationship (?) (we liked each other but nothing happened)
then that crush returned (but it wasn't like the first time, they were more gay panics) + I can't like her bc she says she's an ally but she has some weird behaviours
then it got away again (I didn't have other crushes, just some people that I find cute)
but yesterday due to a game she had to give me a massage and I can't stop thinking about it😀 idk if it's bc I have anxiety so I'm overthinking it or for some other reason😀

Hi there, El298

Just to clarify, is this all about the same person, or about multiple different people?

It isn't unusual for crushes to take up a lot of attention, so I think it is understandable that you're thinking about her. Do these crushes bother you or make it difficult for you to do other things?

hi and thank you for replying:)
it's about the same girl, only the sort of situationship was with another person
nono it's more the fact that I can't let myself like her (because she's straight and other stuff)

Ahh, I understand.

Since it isn't bothering you that much, you don't need to be concerned. The crush will probably go away on its own with some time, like it has before.
