My first real crush was in high school. He was talented, funny and way more popular than I was. He had these fantastically intense blue eyes and very, very straight blond hair.
I thought he only saw me as an art buddy. It was only after I’d met Ex and we were a couple that I found out art guy had wanted to date me but thought I wasn’t interested in him that way. Ah, well.
And here’s a lovely little animated piece about first crushes. Enjoy.
