I findthat there are a lot of words in the English language that I am not particularly fond of. Some are obvious, such as "chunks," "panties," and "belly," but another word that I pretty much hate is the word "crush" and everything that is associated with a particular use of that word.
I really hate when people use the word "crush" to describe liking someone. Okay, so here are my reasons:
1. We are in college, people. Forgive me, but 'crush' sounds kind of middle school to me.
2. That word obviously doesn't have the best connotations. Come on. 'Crush?' Somethings not gonna turn out well for someone.
3. If one used that word often, and if, I don't know, maybe the person being 'crushed on' learned of this, I just don't think it would end up well. Being liked is one thing, 'crushed on' is another.
I think it shows immaturity that someone can't even use the word 'like,' even if it supposedly means the same thing.
Ugh. Pet peeves.
