If you’re looking for inspirational crush quotes that will intensify your crush feelings and make your heart beat faster, then you’re just in the right place where sharing plenty of love and warmth is our favorite hobby!

Before diving deeper, let’s first define this powerful word:

Crush (noun): When you can’t stop thinking about that special person, when the urge to text them is the strongest force with you, when the butterflies in your stomach play a game of hide and seek…

This is not the dictionary definition of a crush but it still seems totally legit. We can all agree that having a crush on someone is one of the most intense feelings in the world!

Our daily tasks become daydreaming, imagining the first kiss, holding hands, stargazing and Googling romantic love quotes and some of us go so far that they start imagining having kids with them (I admit that I was one of them during my intense crush period).

Also, some of us become addicted to love and start experiencing limerence.

No matter how old I get, I never cease to experience that euphoric feeling (driven by infatuation) when I receive a text message from my crush.

That one sound is so powerful that it creates electricity in my whole body, my heart rate accelerates and the excitement overloads.

Getting high on that feeling is definitely priceless, of course but sometimes our crush costs us a lot of nerves and tears and yet we still say to ourself: “It was worth it.”

We selflessly accept every variation of a crush because it’s still the most beautiful feeling in the world.

With that being said, from funny quotes to hopeless ones, here’s the ultimate list of both crush quotes for him and crush quotes for her!
