But something happened between 1996 and 2012. I moved away and we both aged of course but, I am not sure what was involved, but my crush changed quite drastically. It was a lust filled crush and not a personality crush so I uncrushed him. I am sure if it wasn't a superficial thing at 13 to 20 years of age and there was an awesome personality there, too, it might be a different story.
