Well, there are some clear signs that we’ll go over right now…
You Can Recall The Exact Moment You Discovered Them
If you’ve seen ‘Inside Out,’ then you know that when you make a grand memory, it creates this sort of island. That’s what happened the day you first laid eyes on your lifetime crush. It’s etched into your memory so hard, it’s like your founding hieroglyphic and shit.

They Make You Feel Forever Young
This crush will forever make you feel like when you first fell in love with them back in the day. Oh, to be 12 in 1999 again. I mean, I was a hot mess of an adolescent but the pop culture was top-notch.

Not a year goes by that your family doesn’t remind you of how fucking obsessed you were with this celebrity.
