Many people confuse having a crush on someone with loving someone. The truth is, the two are different, but one can grow on the wings of another.

Crushes may be spontaneous and rise quickly. It lasts for a few weeks or even months, but something strange about this is that it could grow into becoming love.

 

How Long Does A Crush Last

It differs in individuals, but it could be for a couple of weeks or months. Some say four months or even less, but because of the differences in individuals and their ability to control their feelings, I’d say we can leave it at between 4 to 6 months.

Truth also is told, I believe a crush can last for as long as we allow it to. It just depends on how quickly the connection between the two individuals involved is fed.

Sometimes, what starts as a joke could grow and turn into a beautiful love story. Crushes begin from having an attraction towards someone, but because it’s still at its infant stage, it will still be considered a crush.

I will say that love begins when the crush has stayed for a period, and you have analyzed your feelings to be sure of what you feel

Accept the fact that it’s normal to have a crush on someone. You will agree with me that you may have developed feelings for someone around you in the past but were not sure of what to call it.

 

What Then Is A Crush?

A crush is a fickle feeling we have for someone. I say fickle because most of the time, a crush isn’t realistic. I say this because you may just happen to like a total stranger, does that in any way prove anything? Imagine you meet a person and feel comfortable all of a sudden.

You think the person shares your ideas and conscience. In some extreme cases, you may begin to think about happily ever after with a stranger you just met.

Suddenly, you realize you are beginning to think about them more than you should. You may begin to dream and daydream about them and begin plotting the possibility of making them your life partner.

Whenever you discover that you begin to attach so much effort or your emotions are gearing up towards someone, then you may be having a crush.

Worse still, when you realize that you cross the line of simple admiration and you feel this way towards the person, and you begin to pursue what you feel, then you are crushing on the person. Don’t forget that I mentioned earlier that it’s normal and healthy to have feelings for anyone.

The other side of having a crush on someone is the longevity of how you feel. Remember, feelings can never be trusted as they can change.

What if you are rejected when you intend to give a voice to how you feel? Researchers have it that a crush lasts for four months. You may be correct to say you may be towing the lane of true love if your feelings for your crush exceed six months.

So if your question is, how long do a crush last for a woman and a man? I guess you have your answer now. Teenage crushes may last longer because they are yet to understand and fully master their emotions, and since their crush becomes their focus for that period, it may take a longer time.

 

Does A Celebrity Crush Last?

To answer this, you need to know that there are different levels to establishing that you are crushing on a celebrity.

It could begin with you seeing them on screen and just liking them and what they do. Next, you decide to follow them on social media and comment on their posts.

You could take it further by engaging in defending them when people make comments that are unpleasant to your hearing. The list is endless.

On how long it lasts, it may take a long time but may be cut short when the celebrity misbehaves, or you discover the possibility of getting to them isn’t feasible. Ever sat to think about what attracted you to the person you are crushing on?

 

How To Get Over A Crush

1.  Kill The Connection

I know you’re not related to your crush and possibly don’t have a relationship. It’s possible you never had the slightest hint of you crushing on them.

This means that you are safe, and you can walk away. How do you do this? Let go of how you used to feel for your crush. Treat your feelings for him like you have just been jilted.

2.  Avoid Your Crush

If your crush is someone you see every day, then you may find it really difficult, but if you can stay away from places they will likely show up, then you will be fine.

 

3.  Avoid Conversations With Them

You have to ignore them if you are already communicating. Stop all conversations and get busy.

 

4.  Turn A Blind Eye To Things That Remind You Of Them

It will be nearly impossible to get over them if you keep looking at their pictures or even go back to listening to voice notes from them. If you need to stop crushing over them, then it means you need a break from anything that has to do with them.

 

5.  Protect Your Social Media Handles

Block and delete them from your friend’s list if you can. This is the quickest way to get over someone, in my own opinion.

I understand that not everyone can do this, but if you can, it will help you maintain your sanity and health. A crush doesn’t guarantee true love; let them go.

 

6.  Avoid Any Discussions That Have To Do With Them

If you think your passion for your crush is more than 4 months, then it will take you longer to get out of it. So stop asking people around you about your friend.

Stop getting updates on their lives from your family and friends. Let your friends and family know you won’t want any updates about them.

 

7.  Face Reality

Be honest with yourself. This is just a crush and not someone you have fallen in love with, at least not yet. A crush never lasts forever, but when you find someone who loves you genuinely, it will last for a lifetime.

 

8.  Time Will Tell

With time your emotions will either get better, or you will realize that you have only been crushing over someone who doesn’t care about you. You may be broken now, but you will heal. With time, you will get over your crush.

 

9.  Allow Some Distraction

What we fixate upon sometimes expands. If you concentrate all your efforts on your crush, you may have little or no time to meet with other people or be creative, and this will mean you are stuck.

So allow yourself to grow by engaging in activities that will not only benefit you but also distract you from expending too much energy thinking about a crush who you are not sure will make you their partner someday.

 

10.  Meet Up The New Person

This does not mean that you will think of a new crush. When you meet new people, you will feel better. This will have a good effect on you. It will help you to forget everything about your crush.

Then you can easily move on. I think this is the best way. Attraction should not be taken lightly, as it sometimes leads you through the sentimental trouble of a real relationship.

It requires some willpower and effort. Yes, everyone knows it is not easy, but it is not so difficult. You can do it for yourself.

The most valuable thing in life is very expensive. Sometimes this breaks your heart, but it will teach you the greatest lesson of life and make you stronger than ever.

When you feel intense toward someone, there is no other way than to argue with them. When you reach your goals, you will find yourself the happiest, most powerful, and most imaginative person.

Just believe it. After a few days, you will find yourself a new person. Your crush won’t feel like anything at all but a thing of the past.

 

How Long Would A Crush Last?

Your crush might not be something that you’re thinking about for too long if there isn’t anything that is happening between the two of you.

The more that you like him, the more likely it will be for him to think about you all of the time, but at some point, it’s possible for the feelings to fade away if they aren’t reciprocated.

You need to make sure that you’re showing him how much he means to you so the two of you can have a successful relationship.

He’ll never be thinking about anyone else if this is happening regularly, and it might even allow him to start talking about his problems without being ashamed about what happened in the past.

 

What Does It Mean To Have A Crush On Someone For a Long Time?

A crush can happen very quickly but might not go away if there isn’t a clear reason why it happened in the first place.

How Do You Know When Your Crush Is Over?

The best thing that you can do when it comes to this situation is to focus on allowing the two of you to talk things through.

If he has a problem with your social class, then there isn’t much you can do about this because he might not want to get into details about something like this.

You need to show him that his opinions don’t matter when talking about your relationship because this will allow the two of you to move forward with what is currently happening.

He’ll be able to handle the problem that he has if you aren’t trying to convince him otherwise, so make sure that you are giving him enough space without telling him how much better than he is.

 

How Do You Know If A Crush Is More Than A Crush?

There’s a possibility that you might be more interested in him than he is in you, and this isn’t something that happens to everyone. This can happen daily.

Either one of these people could admit their feelings for the other person but really, it will only make things more complicated between them if they do decide to take things further.

Can A Crush Last For 2 Years?

He’ll never be thinking about anyone else if this is happening regularly, and it might even allow him to start talking about his problems without being ashamed about what happened in the past.

Having a new crush can feel fantastic. You look forward to seeing them and feel energized, even when you spend time together. Depending on the situation, there might even be a chance that the feelings are mutual.

When your relationship with your crush doesn’t go anywhere, you might feel, well, I’m crushed. And that feeling is far from fantastic.

Maybe your crush involves someone off-limits, such as a married friend or professor. These crushes are pretty normal, but they’re still tough to get over, even when you know from the start you can’t get involved.

You might feel even more devastated when your crush is available but doesn’t return your feelings.

In the end, it may not matter why your crush goes unfulfilled: The pain would still feel the same. If you’re having a hard time moving on, the steps highlighted above will be of great help to you.

The starting point of getting over a crush is pouring out your feelings. You could use a journal or have an audio of you pouring your heart out.

Let it be a no holds barred meeting with yourself so you can express yourself adequately. You do not need to tell anyone or send it; it’s for your consumption.

If you are in a relationship, don’t think you are exempted, as you can suddenly begin to crush on someone. It’s not abnormal; also, it’s how you handle how you feel that matters.

Being in this situation can be dicey as if you express how you feel to your partner, they may begin to feel jealous or even think you are cheating on them already.

It’s up to you to gauge how you feel and know how to respond to it. If your partner reacts negatively, then you can deal with it on your own, but if your partner is understanding, you can share it with him or her; they could help you set up boundaries, be more loving towards you and even handle the situation with you.

Talk to your partner, in all honesty. If the person you are crushing on is also your partner’s friend, then you need to face reality and handle the situation maturely. Having a crush is nothing to be ashamed of. What matters is how you handle the way you feel.
