Are you having a crush on someone right now and wonder if they are toxic for you? When you have feelings for someone, it’s easy to see everything they do in a positive light, but not every person you crush on is someone you should consider getting into a relationship with. For example, it is not a good idea to develop a crush on someone who treats you and other people badly. So to save you from being in a toxic relationship in the future and heartbreak, we made this video to help you identify the different types of crushes that might not be good for you.
