Since you first have a sexual awakening caused by an awkwardly attractive cartoon character (bonus points if it was a cartoon animal, Mufasa ftw) you’ve likely been experiencing crushes. Crushes, though they seem like a nice little way to occupy your time, are the actual worst. I mean they are called crushes for fucks sake, which totally insinuates that you will be crushed. Not a pleasant experience, if you ask me. Unsurprisingly, I have found that the stages of crushing on someone are paralleled with the stages of grief.
