ahem. allow me to retort.
Based on Made-Up Bullshit, this is Bullshit.
sorry to all you dewy-eyed romantics out there, but based on an equally valid and binding Psychological Study of My Taint, there’s about 1% of crushes that eventually turn into In Love (swoooon), and the rest turn into infatuation, lust, hookups, disappointed realizations of some previously unseen dealbreaker (like chewing tobacco or Ayn Rand), i-like-you-but-not-like-thats, and awkward one-sided fawning that makes things uncomfortable for one of the parties involved once it’s gracelessly revealed after a night of drinking.
so good for you if the person you have a crush on shares the feelings and reciprocity leads to all kinds of happy endings.
but don’t go assuming something is legit based on some arbitrary timeline just because some nerd on the internet wanted to get 24,000 reblogs and likes.
