Five girls reveal the most embarrassing things they’ve executed whilst crushing tough, from sending themselves Valentine’s Day gifts to lying approximately a kiss to selecting a college based on a crush on a tour guide.
“For the senior class fundraiser, they were selling carnations around Valentine’s Day, and it got into my head that I should send one to the guy I liked. Because we were friends and had class together, he knew my handwriting, so I paid this junior girl on my bus five dollars to write out the card from a ‘secret admirer.’ I did this every year we were in high school! Our friend told him what I was doing, so he definitely knew. Awkward!”
-Cassie, Gorham, Maine
“I joined the Bible study club because my crush was in it — and I was openly an atheist. But nonetheless, I woke up early every Tuesday morning to eat bagels and talk about god, and act like I was “curious” about “philosophy of religion,” when it was actually just an extra hour I got to spend trying to make eye contact with him.”
