People Admit What Made Them Stop Being Interested In Their Crushes

[rebelmouse-image 18353885 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

**Ah love. Amore is one of life's greatest gifts. We yearn for it, chase it and dream of it. Most of the time we are dreaming of sharing our heart with one person in particular. That man or woman who churn the butterflies in our stomach. We fantasize about all the things we'll do and share until one day they show us a true color or two and then they come crashing down from than pedestal faster than Humpty Dumpty. Then you stand there and ask yourself... "What the heck was I thinking?!" **

Redditor **torkpo **_asked for stories about what it took for some people to lose interest in their stalkees/I mean crushes. _

CHECK PLEASE!!!

He got visibly annoyed when I didn't order what he suggested off of a menu.

I PUT A SPELL ON YOU....

She told me after we'd been dating for a few weeks that she seriously believes she has psychic powers. I was already thinking of calling it off but that was the moment I knew for sure that we weren't going to be compatible. Dating a psychic is not worth the stress of knowing she could be reading my thoughts at any moment.

SHOW ME THE $$$$$

[rebelmouse-image 18353887 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Mine was more subtle... the first thing that came of her mouth to talk about former people she had dated was economic issues. You know:

"Oh, he was loaded"

"Oh, he took me to Paris for the weekend".

Made me realize her priorities.

SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST AWFUL.

[rebelmouse-image 18353888 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

After a movie I grabbed my trash and she laughed and smacked it out of my hand onto the floor and said "people get paid to clean it" I just looked at her and said "why would you intentionally make someone's life harder when you have two free hands to carry trash 15 feet to the can?" She couldn't grasp that concept and I never felt attracted to her again.

SO THAT WAS FUN... OR NOT!

[rebelmouse-image 18348668 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Zero chemistry when alone together. Was really into someone from the extended friend group, seemed to get along great when others were around and there was some mutual flirting for a while. The first time we tried to hang out on our own there was just... nothing. I've never had so much uncomfortable silence and conversations aborted after one or two responses... crush gone then and there.

MEAN PEOPLE SUCK.

[rebelmouse-image 18353890 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Started to insult my life style, hobbies, the way I talked, basically everything. Not exactly the nicest person I know.

BUTTERFLIES ROAM FREE...

[rebelmouse-image 18978933 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

He was on his phone the entire time we were having dinner. I didn't feel comfortable asking him to get off of his phone, so I mostly just sat there awkwardly and felt the butterflies leave my stomach.

I DO/I DON'T!

[rebelmouse-image 18351612 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Googling him and finding his Wedding Registry. For that weekend.

BUH BYE FOOL!

[rebelmouse-image 18978934 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

He treated a friend of mine like crap ... after he slept with her. That killed it.

DON'T BE A DATELINE NBC EPISODE IN THE MAKING...

[rebelmouse-image 18978935 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

We were out driving and he swerved the vehicle to deliberately hit a sparrow whilst laughing.

Yeah nah, bye..

LITTERING IS SO NOT COOL HONEY!!

[rebelmouse-image 18357798 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

She threw a bunch of old McDonald's bags out of her car window then smiled at me like she did something badass.

IT'S WRITEN IN THE STARS.

[rebelmouse-image 18978936 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Made life decisions by checking some sort of online star sign thing which was basically a random generator of generic sayings.

I'M THE BEST! ME!!

[rebelmouse-image 18346072 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

They always had to be right, and if they were wrong they'd manipulate it to where they were somehow right.

THAT'S A SCARY NOISE!

[rebelmouse-image 18346438 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A really cartoon like fake laugh that happened frequently.

DO THE RIGHT THING.

[rebelmouse-image 18978937 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The first time we went out together as a group, she was adamant that all the guys foot the bill as it was "the right thing to do". We aren't friends anymore.

OK GLEN CLOSE.

[rebelmouse-image 18354723 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Someone started a rumor I was stalking her. Just kinda made it weird to ever think about her.

CHILL OUT FIRE STARTER.

[rebelmouse-image 18978938 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I saw the guy who I had a crush on, off and on for all of high school attempt to shave his arm hairs with one of the ten lighters he had in his backpack by burning off the hairs.

FYI, He doesn't smoke either. He just really likes fire.

SOME PEOPLE ARE JUST IDIOTS.

[rebelmouse-image 18978939 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

He didn't think drinking and driving was a big deal and admitted to doing it often because he's "more focused when he's drunk".

WHY DON'T YOU JUST DATE YOURSELF.

[rebelmouse-image 18978940 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

He was extremely attractive and we had been on a few hikes together with a small group, and I was crushing pretty hard. We were at a mutual friend's place for her birthday, and he spent the majority of the night telling me about all of these dates he had been on and how he could get whatever girl he wanted. Instantly killed that crush.

YOU'RE TONGUE ISN'T A THERMOMETER.

[rebelmouse-image 18978941 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Terrible kissers, especially if they smoke. I'll never forget a handsome man who shoved his entire, flexed tongue down my throat outside of a pub in southeastern Ireland. Entire tongue! I may have actually gagged.

IT'S JUST MAYO PEOPLE!

[rebelmouse-image 18978942 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Explosive anger issues.

Sorry, super not impressed that you threw a turkey sandwich at the wait staff because they gave you regular mayo instead of light mayo.

One second. One moment. One decision.

They can change... everything.

Change happens with and without notice. Life happens instantly, so we have to learn to keep up.

These are all lessons we learn too late. We need more wisdom when we're younger.

We can make our lives better from the smallest decisions without knowing. But, let's start knowing.

Life will be the better for it.

Let me be real for a second.

Every time I listen to Bjork's "Unravel," my heart breaks a bit.

Have you ever listened to it?

It's on Homogenic, her third studio album, and it's incredible, passionate, smartly produced and a great showcase for her stupendous voice.

That song? An emotional rollercoaster, for sure.

There's tons of great music out there, though, and even more sad and gorgeous songs to discover.

Unfortunately, a friendship could really end at any point in life.

Friends grow apart, but also, sometimes, it's just necessary to say goodbye to your relationship with a friend.

Maybe they aren't the right type of friend for you anymore, or maybe something has happened in their lives to make them self-destructive and toxic.

The reasons are many, and they are all sad.

Certain personalities show up at almost every party like clockwork.

There's always that person who get's too drunk, someone awkwardly standing in the corner nursing a drink, the person who's not having a good time no matter what and the person babysitting the crowd they came with.

When there's alcohol—or any other substances—and the pressure of a social situation, all sorts of quirks will come out. We wanted to know what people thought their country would act like if they were a person attending a party.
