Eye candy: so good, yet so bad

I’m a hopeless romantic (yea Ellie, you think?). I don’t necessarily believe in love at first sight, but I do believe in instant chemistry. But, until I find my happily-ever-after, I can’t help but to enjoy some eye candy. Hey, you do it too, admit it!

It’s not always healthy, because you don’t know who that person really is and you might get your hopes up a little too much. My former eye candy developed into a crush…wait, what’s the difference? Well, eye candy is merely for staring (in a non-stalker way) purposes, but a crush is more of a connection that blossoms after you meet someone. Sadly, I had too much of my former eye candy and I ended up having a crush on him; however, while we became friends, it wasn’t meant to be.

So, how do you know you’re overindulging in eye candy?

1) You become too expressive in your mind, as soon as your eye candy isn’t looking towards you. Oh, and to add to your embarrassment, you don’t think about this, you actually DO it. Yes, those expressions come to life, and your friends notice and tease you about it… FOR…THE..REST…OF..YOUR…LIFE.

Darn it, he’s cute

2) You suddenly become a bad listener. Your BFF’s problems? Nope, you’re paying attention to the nice clothes your eye candy is wearing.

3) Before you overindulged in your eye candy, you didn’t seem to care about impressing him/her. Now, you do!  You go through your closet like you’re Ali Baba discovering the thieves’ treasure den.

4) This is self-explanatory

So, my cousin and I liked the same guy for about 1 or 2 years…

I was around 11 and my cousin was 13, the guy was 14-15 (can’t remember). My first cousins and I grew up together; we saw each other all the time, hung out at each others’ houses during the summer, and apparently had crushes on the same guy…

He was one of the kids from my cousin’s neighbourhood who would hang out with us. This was back in the day, when kids played outside without fear! We used to play hide-and-seek before we were called to dinner. I remember one day I begged to be let out at night with my cousins, just to play hide-and-seek and dodgeball on the streets with them —because it was so hardcore to play those games at 10 pm. I miss those days!

Anyway, yes we liked the same guy and it was good; there was no competition. As a matter of fact, I clearly remember one day when we both went into my aunt’s room and put on make up and sprayed gallons of perfume, just to impress him. He was my male cousin’s best friend at the time, and we were grateful for this, because that meant he would visit every time we were there (we waited by the window like snails glued on a wall). There was non-stop drooling, and that was helpful, because my aunt never had to worry about washing the floors.

Long story short, she ended up going out with him a couple of times, because she was closer to his age. I reconnected with him on Facebook a couple of years ago, and it brought good memories (I’m not attracted to him anymore). Unfortunately, we lost communication again. But, my relatives still love to tease me and my cousin about it. It’s funny, because I thought we were subtle about us crushing over him, but I guess not.

How about YOU? Has this ever happened to you?

So, you have a crush on someone?

I admit it, when I was in High School, it was a drool-fest over the cute guys who walked in the hallways. Now, I can control it better. It’s just funny when I think about how different my reactions can be when I have a crush on someone. They’re not obvious to the guy, but my friends get a chuckle out of my silliness.

 

 Usually, I develop a crush on someone I know and talk to frequently, because I mostly fall for their personality. However, there are times when the physical aspect wins and I know right away who’s going to be in my daydreams for at least, the next couple of weeks.

Has this ever happened to you? You crush is talking to you about how much he’s loving the new features of his car –when a guy loves his car that much, you know there is no chance of a date any time soon – and somehow in your twisted mind, you think he’s saying he loves you.

Your crush: “I love my new rims”

You: “I love you, too…I mean…them, I love them, too”.

Sometimes, I do have a serious crush and I can’t help but to daydream constantly. I try not to stare, because I’m not creepy, so that’s why I just daydream. Thing is, even though I know it’s not true love and I know deep inside I won’t really be with him, I just tell myself, “whatever, I love him” just for the sake of delusional daydreaming.

There’s nothing like the feeling of your crush initiating conversations with you. Have you had that feeling before? When you know he’s not really into you, but he still wants to be friends and laughs at your lame jokes? Hey, I’ll take it. I’ll have the biggest smile throughout the day. I know my friends will probably think I look like I’m reaching nirvana, but it’s something! Gotta be grateful, right?

My friends always laugh when I’m joyful over the fact a crush of mine says hi to me. I don’t let him know, oh no, I play it cool and say hi back, but as soon as he isn’t looking, I turn to my friends and repeat over and over again, “oh my goodness! He said Hi! Did you see that? Did you?” It’s like High School all over again.

Remember, don’t stalk your crushes, don’t stare at them with predatory eyes. Just dream about them and see if you can be friends with them. If it’s meant to be, it’ll happen.
