When Your Crush Crushes You

I finally watched “500 Days of Summer“. Yes I know it has been out long enough to now be on DVD, but I have been behind on my movie watching. The writing in this movie is AMAZING. It is a real live example of what happens when either we have a crush on someone or think stronger feelings are there.

We have all been there. We meet someone and instantly feel a spark. We want to spend more time with them. Or we have a friend and over time start to develop feelings for that person.

As you spend time with that person you have feelings for you daydream about your future with them. Finally  you get up the courage (like I did) to tell them how you are feeling. Either that person feels the same way, lets you down easy, completely disappears, or in my case tell you he wants an Eastern European woman.(If he is reading this, I hope he knows I just like teasing him about it. And yes him and I are still friends.)

Or you just keep those feelings bottled up inside. Either way when you find out your crush doesn’t feel the same way, it hurts. When you see that person again you feel awkward. Hopefully you are able to remain friends with that person and the awkwardness goes away. If that person completely disappears from your life, you feel a loss. This person was a part of your life and now is gone. It is hard and you start to think that you made a mistake by telling them.

At the end of the movie, Summer tells Tom when she first met her husband she just knew he was the one and that she never had those feelings for Tom. It hurts Tom to hear this but eventually he realizes it is for the best.

When your crush crushes you, it will hurt but in time you will realize it wasn’t the right time for the two of you to be together.
