Samantha Kaut Posted March 31 Share Posted March 31 Hi! I plan to not make this post long, but that might be hard because my brain always side tracks :') All my life, I thought I experienced crushes, which is still something I am confused about. Looking back, I had very few crushes, and something I struggle with is that i don't even know how to explain a crush to myself. It doesn't help that now I'm questioning if what I experienced were crushes. The only person I can look back on and say I had a "crush" on was my childhood guy best friend. I knew him since we were babies and we always hung out when we were young, but he moved away for a few years (eventually came back) and we lost that connection. By then I had my friends and he had his friends. Fast forward, the crushes I had (throughout elementary, middle and high school) were very short and they were based on looks? It was more just like I thought they were cute. I honestly can't even remember a lot of them. Now, I am a Junior in college, still haven't had that many crushes, however, I have definitely found guys attractive. I don't know if I am on the aromantic spectrum or if I just haven't met the right person or if I'm just afraid to put myself out there. It's honestly a journey and I know it's okay to use labels to help you and then realize that maybe they don't suit you. It doesn't help that I get anxious and depressed easily and this is a really emotional topic for me. What are your experiences and how did you come to terms with your sexual and romantic orientation?
