When it comes to wanting to hunt down that special someone, guys aren’t all that different from the fairer species after all.
The only difference being that guys usually end up finding many special someones; a steady succession of them, in fact. Depending on how good your luck is, on a scale of 1 to Ted Mosby, here’s a list of the seven different types of crushes you will definitely have in your twenties:
The Best Friend’s Girl Crush
Which will somehow never move beyond a crush, even though you know that your best friend and his girlfriend are completely wrong for each other – Let’s just say that all the Bollywood movies have somehow left you scarred permanently when it comes to love triangles.
The Childhood Crush
The one who your childhood self had pegged as the one that got away has returned, and wow! You aren’t willing to let her get away quite as easily this time round.
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
The Vacation Crush
That girl you met on your trip abroad, fell madly in love with, spent a couple of nights awake planning fancy names for your kids. And never, ever saw again. That one.
The Fictional Crush
From the fictional crushes that exist only in books (Think Hermione) to your special video game hottie, the world of fantasy indeed has scope for a lot of fantasies.
The Forbidden Crush
Usually accompanied with a newfound sympathy for Akshaye Khanna in Dil Chahta Hai.
Main Hoon Na
The Neighbor Crush
That hot girl next door whom you’ll never make a move on, and won’t let your friends either. The same girl who incidentally deserves credit for ensuring that you actually pick out a respectable pair of track pants before stepping out onto your gallery on Saturday mornings.
The Best Friend Crush
That tomboy best friend you’ve spent all your life fighting with, in real life and the virtual one, courtesy Counter Strike, and who you will at some point realize you have feelings for. And well, depending on whether Cupid is in a Kuch Kuch Hota Hai mood or not, you might just end up finding your happily ever after as well.
Arjun and Alia
