I've only been in one relationship, which lasted two weeks. I'm not going to delve into the details, in respect for my ex, but I can assure you that I was not in love.
However, over the years I have had many celebrity crushes.
First, it was Nick Carter from the Backstreet Boys.
Next, Orlando Bloom took my fancy. (He was also my first British man love.)
After Orlando, three brothers from New Jersey stole my heart. The Jonas Brothers were an essential part of my high school life, and they still hold a dear place in my heart.
Now, I have a hodgepodge of "celebrity crushes", including Darren Criss, Ryan Reynolds, Dev Patel and Aaron Johnson. (And I can't forget Charlie McDonnell, even though he doesn't consider himself a celebrity, because all he does is make YouTube videos... but he's still made of a lot of awesome in my eyes.)
I have been called boy-crazy before. I have been called a crazy fangirl. I have been made fun of for liking men that I have absolutely no chance with.
None of that has ever really bothered me, because people aren't telling me anything I don't know already. I realize that my "celebrity crushes" are stupid, pointless, and even ridiculous at times. So, call me pathetic. Just know, that I don't see what's so wrong with admiring celebrities. It's not like I'm stalking them behind bushes, or posting crazy "OMG I LURVE U SOOOOO MUCH. WILL U MARRY ME?!?!?!?! <3" posts on their Facebook walls.
If I have no one else to go all "fangirl" for in real life, then why not imagine Darren Criss serenading me? I assure you, once that special guy enters my life I will "fangirl" over him just like I did with the Jonas Brothers.
Ok, maybe I won't write a bajillion pointless fanfiction stories about him, but you get my idea.
