Just wondering... Who has actually 'ended up' with their 'crush'?

How long were they a crush for beforehand, and how did it work out? Happily ever after, or awful?

Like I said, just wondering, being nosy.

I did - about 5-6 months of going red in their presence before he asked me out. Was good while it lasted, but it ran the course over about 15-18 months.

My dh wink

I did and he's now my DH. We met when I was 13 and I had a massive crush on him from then until 17 when I finally got up enough courage to ask him out! We've been together almost 13 years and married for 3 and a half years.

Me. Crush since sixth form.
Got together 15 years ago in our late 20s, married 10 years tomorrow smile.

Married my school girl crush, lasted almost 13 years but to be honest we didn't actually have anything in common and it was a relief when it ended.

Ah, sorry, I didn't mean to post and run...

Thanks for your responses. Interesting mix then!

It was about six weeks before I could maintain eye contact with DH without blushing. I have never fancied anyone so much.

I'm used to him now wink

I fancied dh from the moment I saw him (very much a long time passed "school girl")

I eventually told him whilst atrociously drunk at a Christmas works' do fblush

He was very nice about it but nothing happened for another 2 months after that. He told me later that he'd assumed I didn't really mean it since I couldn't possibly fancy him, and that he didn't want to take advantage of my vulnerable state since I was clearly at a delusional level of drunkenness.

I've told my story of our first kiss on here before. Just as he started to believe that I liked him, I decided to move hundreds of miles away for a new start.

We went out for a drink after work to essentially talk about how we liked each other, but agreed it wasn't to be.

We had a lovely chat, it was all very final. Then we walked out to go our separate ways. It was dark and drizzling slightly. I said a sad goodbye, started to walk away, and he took my hand, spun me back and kissed me.

Another month and I'd moved to the other side of the uk. 4 months later he moved nearby. In those intervening months he drove a 10 hour round trip every weekend to see me.

I am an excellent kisser.

I swear I've seen that film wink

No really. That's a truly beautiful story.

ShesAnEasyWuffer Thu 04-Dec-14 21:21:41

I did! I worked with dh, he was senior to me and I had a MASSIVE crush on him. I could barely form a coherent sentence when in his company. There was natural chemistry between us but we were both seeing other people at the time so nothing happened. He left the company after a few months and I was really upset. We stayed in touch though, fast forward several years...we both found ourselves single and got together. We've been together for five years this month, we're married and have a dd smile

I try to remember it as a black and white film in which I call everyone 'darling' and it's all frightfully intense.

Bloody lucky it worked out really. He's an idiot for following me grin

Izzy24 Thu 04-Dec-14 21:29:24

Crush for 18months.

Married and v happy now.

Christmasbargainshopper Thu 04-Dec-14 21:32:16

My dh. We are going strong after ten years (married for 7).

I fancied him for 2 years previous to that, but it just never happened. Were never single at the same time etc. I had written him off when we suddenly clicked (had a drunken kiss on night outwink).

SchroSawMargeryDaw Thu 04-Dec-14 21:32:43


Massive crush from age 12, got together when I was 18, now have 2 lovely boys and he still gives me butterflies. smile

Joysmum Thu 04-Dec-14 21:32:49

DH did, I wasn't interested in romance and just wanted him as my best friend.

He was 14 and we got together after 6 years, married 3.5 years later. We've been together 20 years now smile

CardiffUniversityNetballTeam Thu 04-Dec-14 21:37:11

Twice. The first time when I was 16 and the second when I was 19. And both times I fucked it up. confused
They are both happily married now and I think I am destined to be perennially single.

SassySugarCane Thu 04-Dec-14 21:53:56

DP fancied me when he met me in year 9. so 13/14. He confessed his attraction when we were 17! Been together ever since and have 2dc.

AnnabellesMumXx Fri 05-Dec-14 00:16:16

Me! grin

Treasures Tue 09-Dec-14 02:32:57

He was a friend of a friend when I was in my teens, only saw him a few times and fancied the pants off him! I kept it to myself though. Didn't see him again until I was in my 30s. We've now been married nearly 5 years grin

MummyBeerest Tue 09-Dec-14 03:06:34

These stories are so nice.

I did, once at university. My friends followed it like a romcom and it was fun when we actually decided to date.

It didn't end well. He was better in my head. Probably likewise for him.

Squirrelsmum Tue 09-Dec-14 05:56:44

I'm still crushin on mine, we've been together for 9 years now.

FrazzleRock Thu 18-Dec-14 16:23:13

These ARE lovely stories!

I've never 'ended up with' a crush. Had a few close encounters, but nothing long term unfortunately!

One day, one day....

<ever hopeful>

ThinkIveBeenHacked Thu 18-Dec-14 16:28:19

I did. We both worked part time in retail and I fancied him a LOT. Whenever he was on Changing Room duty I used to assign myself the job of tidying the clothes away from the Changing Room and used to take only 5/6 items at a time. When we were on Tills I used to log into the one next to him. Once in the staff room I thought he was flirting with a girl who was the polar opposite to me so just thought "ahhh if he fancies her then he will never fancy me, wr couldnt be more different". Then when he changed departments and worked stock room, I never saw him anymore. Til he MSN'd me (remember those days!!) and asled if wr could have a catch up ovrr a drink and, well, thats where is all began grin

Its now eleven years later and we are married with two dcs grin Apparently he fancied me all along!

Marshpillow Thu 18-Dec-14 16:32:55
