Many in my schooldays including a few debilitatingly strong ones. I haven't had one since I was a teenager which troubles me. I've probably accepted never having the unattainable.

I don't think I've ever had a real "crush" on anyone. I do remember someone that I was "somewhat" interested in (maybe because she was being extra friendly). I wasn't sure if a real crush or I was just imagining it but then I saw her smoking a cigarette and I completely lost all interest

Yes, several. I have to be careful to avoid having crushes as I get a little carried away. I think it ties into the Aspie obsessive nature.

Absolutely, was too much of a wuss though to say anything to any of the girls I've had crushes on though.

I had my first crush when I was 6. It lasted a few years.

Same! My peers think I'm either weird or bluffing when I tell them this.
I had a small crush when I was nine, but [big surprise] the boy did something or other that was morally atrocious to me and I lost interest.
Then from the end of elementary school all the way until I transferred high schools (and honestly even now when I see him around my hometown), there was a hunky popular boy that I was obsessed with. He was secretly much smarter than his friends.. My creepy self noticed how he was always the smartest in our science courses, yet his friends were....below average. Nothing came of it, as I know I scared him off with my obsessive staring yet never talking to him. It's a shame...

And then one or two small ones that were not significant to me at all and faded quickly.

To clarify myself, what I meant was that I've had too many crushes to mention on this thread.

I'm still in agreement/this applies to me as well, even with the clarification.

Iv'e never had a crush, or any social feelings for anyone. What I mean is, I don't feel anything for another human being on any level.

Have you ever had a crush?


Yes.

Ones I've had start even before entering school, those were on actors, particularly Tom Hanks. Then when I was 4 or 5 I had a crush on a school friend who I actually got to kiss. I had a crush on him for many years. As I got older I had a crush on a boy in my sister's year. A couple of others in high school.

These days it's just boys (or rather men - 5 or so years older than me) in bands and Jim Sturgess - this beautiful actor:

I dare say, it makes the chore of watching a film I can hardly focus on more pleasant.

I am such a girl.

I think the question is...who don't I have a crush on? In childhood I had boys as friends I had feelings for and even recently I had a crush on one or two of my male friends. It seems before I know a person I have to fancy them then once we're friends I lose interest in them.

I don't think I have ever had a crush. At least I don't know what it feels like. :oops:

I have only ever two crushes in my life( from what i can remember). One lasted from dam preschool and all of primary school(they left in the second last year of primary) and even into 2years or so of high school, which is where I became 'friends'? with my current crush( I'm not sure because du'h... autism, YAY).
