    “I always get more excited when I hear his voice or see him.” Try keeping your distance from your crush. This will be hard at first, but it will definitely help you control your feelings. After a while, you will gradually find yourself thinking less and less about him.

  • 2. Focus more on your job

    “I focus on my studies and start thinking about preparing for exams earlier.” Dive into your job or schoolwork more than usual and keep yourself busier. This can lead to a greater focus on your studies or part-time job. Studies and jobs can work as great diversions.

  • 3. Improve your hobby

    “I started getting certified for different things and made a hobby out of it.” Try diverting yourself by trying to improve your hobbies. Some people dive into their old hobbies or find new ones very aggressively. To make it easy, keep it simple and choose something that you love to do. In this process, you can also expect to meet new people as well.

  • 4. Control your alcohol intake

    Alcohol loosens your tongue and makes you want to call your crush or even confess your feelings to him. Needless to say, you have to be careful about how much you drink, especially when you’re already out drinking with your crush!

  • 5. Be rational and analyze why you like him

    “Thinking rationally made me realize I did not know why I liked him. I was able to calm myself down a little.” Try looking at your situation rationally. In this way, you might be able to control yourself. You can also try finding faults in him and be more logical about it!

  • 6. Keep a blog or diary

    “I felt relief after I wrote down what I was feeling into my diary!” “I become more rational after I write things down on my blog. It gives me perspective.” This helps you rearrange your thoughts by putting them into words. Getting your feelings out in some way rather than holding them in will help you control them.

  • 7. Sing a sad love song

    “I related with the lyrics and afterwards I found myself feeling great!” This is also another way to get your emotions out. Music is a powerful tool. It can make you feel a lot of things, and it can help get your emotions out in the open, which in a way helps you control them.

  • 8. Start crushing on a celebrity

    “I lose myself in their world sometimes…” You can divert your attention to a celebrity of your choice. You can escape from reality for a while and stop thinking about your crush. Be careful to not lose yourself completely though and remember to come back to reality!

  • 9. Get yourself out there!

    “I found someone else and I stopped thinking about him for a while.” This is about helping yourself realize that there are a lot of other guys out there. This will gradually make room for other men in your life who you can compare to your crush, which might help you forget about him as well.
