There is something special about that first crush. You're still in school, trying to figure out the ways of the big, bad world when you see that person's face. And for the first time in your life, someone other than yourself becomes the centre of your universe. As you grow older, heartbreaks, disappointments and failures follow you, but your first crush always reminds you of a time when you were still innocent and life was a whole lot simpler.
At a time when you hated going to school, they came like a breath of fresh air. You didn't look forward to the weekends any more as you would have to go two days without seeing them.
There was no way you could meet them outside school or call them, and that made it even better!
