"Dear Carol, do I have a crush...or do I just like them as a person?"
There's this girl in my class. I don't know if I like-like her or not. I've never had a crush, so I might just be making it up in my head because she's cool. Am I just feeling blind by adoration...or do I like her?
Do you have to label how you feel? There's no rush to talk yourself into or out of anything. With a crush, there's often a physical component, like a desire, as well as thinking about the person 24/7. To me, it sounds like you're not ready to decide (and that's fine!), so enjoy your feelings rather than analyze them to death or spring into action.
