I recently discovered a bunch of old songs on my iTunes playlist. One of those was "Crush" by David Archuleta, a song that asks whether his feelings for someone are "real or just another crush
." Probably a good question, but I want to talk about a particular kind of crush - that is, first crushes.
When I was about 5 or 6 years old, my two-years-older sister came home and told me she had a crush on somebody. My mother made a huge deal out of it, and being the silly little kid I was, I decided that I wanted one too. The next day, I came home and announced that I liked somebody.
Of course, I didn't actually. I just wanted to be part of the club. Silly? Of course. But I was 5.My actual first crush was in the 4th or 5th grade
. I don't remember exactly, because it was so long ago. He was blonde-haired, blue-eyed and Australian, and I thought he was the cutest thing I'd ever seen. We hardly ever spoke, but I always chased him with my eyes. He ended up dating one of my friends after I moved away. Although I use the term dating loosely, since really, how do you 'date' in the 6th grade?
I think I saw him once, years later, in a store, although I can't be sure. I didn't say hi.Who was your first crush? How old were you?
