List Rules Anything you've told yourself makes texting your crush acceptable.

So you have a new crush. Congratulations! There is no time when your heart is lighter - or when your phone battery drains faster. The feeling of texting your crush is like a drug. A new text from them is a wave of giddy euphoria, only to be replaced by anxiety about when they'll text you again. Because you NEED MORE.
