From Our Readers: To the Guy I've Had a Crush On For Five Years

It was a crush at first sight.
ART Trixie Ison

I can still remember the very first day our paths crossed, the very first moment that I saw you. It was all fresh like it just happened yesterday. And yes, it was a crush at first sight.

It was the first day of classes of our college years. It was at an assembly for freshies just like you and me. We may have different courses but my eyes suddenly spotted you. I felt butterflies on my stomach. Then boom! That's when I knew that I already had a crush on you.

READWas It All Just Pretend?

When regular classes started, our paths crossed again. We became classmates for a few days. That's the reason why I found out what your name was. Right after class, I went to the library and searched for you on Facebook. Then I added you and you responded. But after that day, you were transferred to another section and we never became classmates again. I used to stalk you or make our paths cross. I even attempted to chase you just to see if you'd say "Hi" or even notice me. And unexpectedly, you did. We became acquaintances. You knew me, I knew you but that was it. We had pictures together during events at school. Pictures of what I wish we could have more.

I was too pressured in that school so I decided to transfer to a school far from you. I thought that my feelings would be gone. Years have passed, 1, 2, 3, 4, and I still felt the same for you. Then I watched you at your graduation ceremony. Seeing you onstage at the PICC wearing your best smile, holding your diploma. It made me feel proud because you finally did it. I messaged you and sent my congratulations. You even replied by mentioning my name and saying thank you. It meant a lot to me.

READYou Were Just a Phase

Today is the fifth year that I have this crazy crush on you. But this year, it's different. I saw your tweet to one of my closest friend from the school where we met. She's your girlfriend now. I can't imagine you being that mushy and sweet. I didn't notice that while I was away, you started noticing her. Then you became a thing.

Now, all I can do is extend my congratulations to the both of you, wishing for a strong and lasting relationship. I will now let this crush go because for years, it had crushed me. And this year, I should not let you and this feeling crush me more. Goodbye, crush. Goodbye, you.
