Reasons why you shouldn’t chase after your crush
So, you find yourself having a crush. It makes you as crazy as it does happy. One moment you think all hope is lost, and then there’s that one text message that means it’s back on. You scheme and you plot (because we all do it) on how to play the game.
You vent about hating the game, but we all know that if we were truly as forward as we’d like to be, it would seem far crazier than our hidden agendas.
So, we pretend and we over-analyze everything. Absolutely everything. From punctuation marks to the time it takes to respond, it all means something to us when, in all likelihood, it meant nothing at all.
Instead of religiously following dating advice and seeking out love, here’s why you should absolutely stop chasing your crush and focus on more important things in life.

Chasing someone that isn’t pursuing you gets you nowhere except running circles around your own heart.
When you meet the right person, you won’t need to run after them, because you’ll both want to walk together the moment you see eye-to-eye. Your worlds will change and the only direction left to go will be forward.
Otherwise, you wind up wasting time conspiring on how to make someone fall in love with you.
You start to forget about the people who aren’t in your life just temporarily.
You miss out on treasured memories with your friends and family while trying to force forgettable memories with infatuation.
You offer your heart to someone who doesn’t deserve you.
The one who does will woo you, court you and kill to be with you, because what would life be without you?

You waste your energy on something that’s fleeting.
In its place, you should spend your time focusing on your date with destiny, rather than your date with the flavour of the week.
