My 22 Crushes — The California Sunday Magazine
This past summer, I flew home to Michigan for the funeral of a childhood friend. After the memorial, I went for a drink with a few pals I hadn’t seen since high school, including Tanya, whom I’d nursed a fluctuating crush on from about third to 12th grade. As was true with most of my early crushes, revealing my feelings seemed like a hopeless and terrifying prospect, and I was pretty sure that Tanya had never known. But what surprised me was that after 25 years — and my own recent marriage — being around Tanya still produced the same giddy rush.
