6 Ways to Get Over Your Hopeless Crush

We all have that one hopeless crush we just can’t seem to get over. Like. EVER.

Even after we saw them with another person. 

Personally, I would love to get over my hopeless crush at least before my next neuroanatomy exam, oral presentation, lab report, or major life change! Crushes are painful, annoying, and honestly freaky. Apparently, the science behind a crush is similar to having a mental disorder like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. 

Woah, madness.

Physically, your body will sweat, tremble, and your heart will race like a cheetah. But why? Well, it’s because your brain is releasing oxytocin, cortisol, and dopamine chemicals to give you that jittery and happy feeling. But, that’s not all. Pheromones are also released into your body to attract pheromones of your future bae (if their pheromones are genetically similar, of course).  But what if they aren’t the same and your bae just doesn’t get the hint, like mine did?

…well. I wish I actually had an answer to that, collegiettes! But I don’t. So instead, I’ll give you a few helpful hints on how to get over your hopeless crush (if you want to).

1. Get them out of your life. 

Seriously, forget them. As cliché as it sounds, there are thousands of other girls/guys out there. There’s no point to limiting yourself to that one person who did not feel the same way about you, or did not treat you the way your should have been treated.

2. Hang out with people who love you for you.

By this, I mean the 2-3 people who actually call you to check up on you, buy you food, and even let you crash at their place. (i.e family, close friends). No one wants to feel left out and unwanted. Ew.

3. Make a list of the top 5 things that always make you happy.

It does not matter what those 5 things are. You just need to do them or just one whenever you start to talk, think, or even daydream about your crush. Remember, these things are meant to make you happy and keep you on track about what really matters, like binging on Netflix and pizza.

‘Cuz I mean, who doesn’t love binging on True Blood and eating two whole pizzas by yourself? No one? Just me? Ok. 

4. Cry it out!

So as weak as this may sound, it works. Sometimes, finding out that your crush just wasn’t that into you may be the most painful thing ever. There’s no cure for a broken heart - no, not even Netflix and pizza can cure this. So, cry it all out. By the time all the hurt is out of your system via tears, you’ll be ready for more MCM’s like this one:

5. Delete their number from your phone

Obviously they don’t “feel you” the way that you “feel them”, so why bother keeping their number?

6. Just have fun! 

I don’t think I need to explain myself.
