7 Types of Toxic Crushes You Should Avoid

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.

If any of these types describe your crush and you’re looking for tips on how to stop liking them, we also made a video on that:
