“Why can’t I just worry about what some guy thinks of the zit on my chin or something that every girl has to deal with? I already know I don’t fit the ideal standard of beauty.

Anyway, Caitlin has some great advice on what to do when your crush finds out you like them but hasn’t said anything yet. Watch and learn!”

"Having a crush can be casual and fun… until that crush goes on for months, even years, and then suddenly you find yourself stuck in this endless cycle of liking someone you feel like you barely know.
