  • Yes I've been physically attracted to someone and I enjoyed her sense of humor but I knew we wouldn't fit. Had vastly different outlooks on life.

  • Yes, because crushes are not something you can control. But what you do with it, is controllable. Maybe you don't have time to date someone, maybe your crush has some qualities that you know will annoy you, maybe you just don't want to date anyone etc.

  • I suppose if the idea of being with them is better then actually being with them then yeah I could see the logic in that.

  • Definitely, for example they are physically attractive, but they smoke. Or just exhibit any kind of deal breaker behavior. Like doing drugs, liking 50 Shades of Grey, etc.

  • Yes, its very possible. In fact, I'm in that situation right now. My crush is absolutely stunning. But she is an awful person, and I've heard about her saying things about me behind my back, so I'd never date her.

    • Would you define a crush as physical attraction alone? Or does that imply some form of emotional attachment or basic personality attraction too?

    • Well for me, when i find someone beautiful enough, i start famtasizing about what it would be like to date her. I make up my own version of her personality in my head, before i even get to know her. And before i know it, i develope a crush on her that i can't seem to get rid of even though i have seen her true colors.

  • A girl who had a crush on me in HS bur had decided not to date before college.

  • Not right now, but I used to have a crush on someone like that... Why? Because she was taken, and you don't steal a girlfriend

  • you can be attracted to someone physically even if you hate their guts or personality. Also some people just might not feel like they want a relationship at the time

  • some times you'd rather have a crush on some one and live in that fantasy, than asking them out getting rejected and and then overall feeling bad about your self

  • I've had a lot of crushes like that actually. Why? Either because I felt like I could never be good enough for them, or I knew they wouldn't be good for me, my life.

  • Absolutely well first a crush is just simply a crush you find that person attractive but that doesn't mean you want to be in a relationship with them.

    But there could be a bunch of reasons why you won't date that person:

    -you're in a relationship
    -they're in a relationship
    -your friend is dating them
    -you know they're just not right for you (would lead you down the wrong path)
    -different religious beliefs
    -different race and family would interfere
    -it's just a physical attraction

    Etc.

  • Yes! Just a personal preference, for example some people aren't girlfriend/boyfriend material for you, but yet you're attracted to them. Or could be I'm not ready for a relationship or don't want to be in one x

  • I do! The only crush I ever had actually - we, for some reason, started talking again but I just can't imagine ever dating him now - it's like I'm trying to get over him although I actually don't wanna get over.. It's weird..
