Lovesick Symptoms and Flare-Ups (From the Desk of Dr. Crush)

So what does it feel like to be crazy in love? That all depends on who you ask. As with most things, we all have our own way of dealing with this fabulous phenomenon. You might feel light-headed and woozy, or just plain sick. You might blush or break out — snap, crackle, or pop. You could feel anxious and aggravated, or warm and fuzzy. You could just stop eating. Or sleeping. Or thinking, breathing, and looking both ways when

you cross the street. You will probably start doodling, daydreaming, picking out cuter outfits, and wearing shinier lip gloss.

One thing’s for sure: Crushing is almost always complicated and sometimes even a little bit scary. With all these different lovesick symptoms, it can be hard to know whether you’ve come down with a bad cold or a bona fide crush. If you’re not sure why you’re acting so kooky, listen to your gut, talk to someone you trust, write in your journal, go for a walk, or simply stare at the clouds. Eventually, your big fat beating heart will tell you whether or not you’ve got a real, good, crazy case of crush.

Crushometer Taking Your Love Temperature

So there’s a new boy in school, and you think you might have a crush. But you might also just be a little bit bored and wishing for a crush. (It happens to the best of us.) Before you start passing notes or batting eyelids, consult the Crushometer to see where your emotions really stand.

When you think about that new boy, you really just want to...

squirm and squeal, fidget and fuss, plot and plan, ... and touch his hair and lick his face . . . . . . . . . . . . . . scorchin’ hot

break out in song, ride a unicorn, or make a collage ... hot tamale

share popcorn at the movies and maybe even hold hands . . . . hot potato

catch a peek of him in his gym shorts . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . warm and fuzzy

poll your friends and see what they think . . . . . . . . . . . . . lukewarm

hook him up with your neighbor or childhood chum . . cool as a cucumber

iron your socks . . . . . . . . . . . . cold fish

Format: Paperback
I liked this book because it had some very good tips for girls, and it
was very well written. The only thing I didn't like about this book was
that there were pages where you were supposed to write in answers to
questions. I would not have included those pages, but there were only a
couple of them, so it didn't make that much of a difference.
Throughout the books, there are quotes from teens on their experiences. I
really liked that those were there because it was very interesting to read
real-life experiences from people just like me. Overall, I really enjoyed
these books.

The thing I can't stand most about dating books is when they take themselves way too seriously. Luckily these this book doesn't, and it's an entertaining read!

Crush reminds you what it's like to flirt or how to pick up on body language cues. I caught myself giggling on the how to stalk without stalking your crush. Trust me, getting the lowdown on a crush without seeming like a creepy groupie is hard.

There's also quite a few cool tips for first date locations and activities, crafty gift ideas, and so on. Honestly, the best section is "Warning Signs: 10 Ways to Tell He's Not Really Into You." Why? Because I think at some point in time we've all emailed or texted someone a little too much.

So whether you're a tween or teen headed for the dating scene for the first time, or you're much older but ready for Cupid to smack you upside the head with a love arrow, this book is chock full of great ideas and surprises for your next big swoonfest.

Format: Paperback
Wow, where to begin, well first of as the title explains I wish I owned this book when I was 13. I would've felt a lot more normal about crushes and boys than I did. Not to mention as the book explains we even act differently when you have a crush on someone. A lot of times i would read a page and just say to myself Wow! Now I get it! Not to mention is was hilarious having all of the silly "Which is worse?" ultimatums, I enjoyed sitting with my friends during my off period going over them and laughing. Although this book made me laugh a lot another thing that I loved about this book is that it included astrology. Astrology is one of my favorite sciences, that and numerology. It's always interesting to see science combined in everyday life. This book was not only a learning experience but also a reminder of how weird we all really AREN'T. The chick who fell in love with Mr. Social Studies was the real wakeup call for me(pg.23).This book was humorous and fun and is a good short read for any girl who is learning the joy of having a crush or, maybe wants to learn to say I love you in more than 10 different languages.

Format: Paperback
This straight-shooting guide to how to handle those uncontrollable crushes skips the puff stuff for advice that resonates with the strong, smart girl. With "Crush", there's no excuse for stealing your BFF's boyfriend or waiting by the phone. Instead, Conley reminds her readers to "Want a lot out of life, and expect that you will get it." It's not that she leaves out the girly fun, ("Carry lip gloss. Never leave home without it," she writes) but Conley supports such bits with sound advice ("Have confidence. It's even better than lip gloss") to provide readers with a refreshingly healthy--never desperate--point of view.
