Ettina Posted December 10, 2016 Share Posted December 10, 2016 Are squishes less age dependant than romantic and sexual attraction? Is it creepy or problematic to squish on a child when you're an adult? My squishes have been directed roughly equally towards adults and children, although they feel a bit different (for kids I feel a lot more protectiveness, like I want to be their mother). Before I knew the difference between a squish and sexual attraction I was afraid I might be a paedophile. I even squished on my little brother for awhile when he was 2 or so. I've even squished on my cats. It just occurred to me that I'm not sure I'm using the word squish correctly. For me it feels like an overwhelming love for them, and feeling like my heart is pulling towards them, and just amazed and overwhelmed that someone so wonderful and amazing and mysterious could actually exist, mixed with a sudden wish that I could just be in that moment with them forever. I want to hug them tight and never let go. It hits me for a couple minutes and then fades, and often I'll have a phase where the same individual triggers it occasionally every time I see them. It does fade over time, though. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
