14 Reasons A Crush As An Adult Is Way Better Than A Crush In High School

 

For most of us, crushes are things that we'll experience all throughout our lives. Some of them are fleeting and innocent, whereas others make you feel like you absolutely must end up with the person you're crushing on. But, when you compare the crushes that you have as an adult to the crushes that you had in high school, the former are way better. When you're older, you're just far more equipped to deal with all your feels, although a serious crush can still make you do the wacky. Check out these fourteen reasons why a crush as an adult is way better than a crush in high school.
