We've all had a crush on someone at one point in our lives. If you're anything like me, you've probably been too scared to confront them and tell them how you feel.

I used to keep my crushes super top secret. I wouldn't even tell my friends because I was scared word would get out! I was always worried about what my crush would say if they knew I liked them.

Some people are the opposite. They don't let fear get in the way.

For example, every time my friend had a crush on someone, she would confront them about it. Sometimes she would walk away embarrassed. Other times, to her surprise, she'd find out that her crush actually liked her back.

Whether you go up to the person you like or not, having a crush on someone can be totally consuming, as evidenced in some of the greatest "crush quotes" out there.
