How do you tell the difference between a Crush and True Love?

Do you get crushes easily? I do. Ever since elementary school. When adults would ask me silly questions, such as “Is there a boy you like in your class?”, I would give out a list of three to four names. I just couldn’t pick  one; I liked ’em all. My mother always laughed about it, and […]
