Here’s your chance to offer advance information for a special edition. Since every woman upon whom I had an unrequited crush, with the exception of the one who died, reads this column, it could get interesting.
My first question is: how rare is the phenomenon. One of the beautiful intelligent women I loved unrequitedly (hi!) said I was the only person who had ever professed to having a crush on her. I find it hard to believe, but I haven’t asked the rest of you. Was I the only one?
I’ve only known one really handsome, intelligent guy (apologies to the rest of you; your look are OK, he was an Adonis) and he never mentioned anyone having a crush on him.
Perhaps I am about to write a whole column about something that has only ever happened to me. Have you ever had an unrequited crush, been on the receiving end of one, or know someone on either end? How did it feel? Sweet, pleasant and flattering? Bizarre and Creepy? Fill in your feelings here. How did it end? How did it work out?
Right now, I only have a me-me-me introduction. I’d love to include some other perspectives. Write me: mailto:[email protected]?subject=crush
