Whether it was in elementary school, high school or some other time, it doesn’t matter. Just think back for a second on that way you’d feel when you were around your crush. Those butterflies. The excitement. The nerves. Maybe you’d try to bring up their name in casual conversations with your friends. Or you’d try to get on their team during recess kickball games. It was a sweet time, and maybe it’s been a while since you remembered that feeling, but here’s a video to remind you what it was like.
The video is from BuzzFeed and is called “Kids Confess Their Feelings About Their Crush,” and it’s exactly as adorable as it sounds. In the video, the kids start out by describing their crushes. Their responses range from “he’s a little cute,” to “it was sunny outside so he put on sunglasses and that just made him cooler.” Fair point, kiddo. Who among us hasn’t fallen for someone after seeing how much cooler they look in sunglasses?
As cute as all their descriptions are, one of my favorite parts of the video is when one kid is asked how he knew he had a crush on someone and he says, “Sometimes you just know.” Simple, right? Sometimes you just know. Personally, I think these kids are pretty smart to understand that.
Enjoy the video. It will definitely have you laughing and “aww-ing” in equal measure. And if you need any tips for winning over your crush, feel free to take one kid’s advice to find out everything your crush likes, mash it all up on a piece of paper and turn it into a book. I’m sure your crush will be swooning in no time.
