Having a crush is awkward as hell, and most of us have at least one embarrassing memory of a time we tragically failed at confessing our feelings. In those moments, it's easy to feel like there is nothing more humiliating than bombing in front of your crush. But alas, the world is complex and sometimes secondhand embarrassment burns your spirit even worse.
In fact, at times the only thing worse than being a creep to a crush, is being the crush whose creeped on. How do you kindly reject someone who is baring their soul to you in deeply awkward ways? What is the protocol for setting boundaries with someone who has crossed the line from admirer to stalker?
When it comes to cringe, the solar system is the limit.
