Crushes aren't just for little kids and high schoolers. They're real...totally real. Helga's crush on Arnold was epic. And I mean obsessive. Shrine anyone? Anyway, if you've got a crush, then keep reading, because the struggle is real.

So you're walking along one day, and you notice them from afar, so you get embarrassed and hide...but you're still staring because they're like...perfect.

And after you see them, everyone else becomes an annoyance. Like, get out of here Brainy. I WILL NEVER LOVE ANOTHER.

And as your crush grows, you spend every second you can pining over their existence.

And sometimes people catch you and it's embarrassing, but you don't care.

Your pining continues for a little while, but everything stops when you see them dating someone else.

You get over it, but somewhere down the line they find you again...

...and the process starts all over again.

Long live Football Head.
This is so cute! Perfect representation of every crush I had in middle school (and let's be real, every crush I still have). Also, I'm just now realizing that Helga's eyebrows are just one line across her forehead, hahaha I never noticed that as a kid.
@allischaaff Maybe I'll make a card about it one day.. it's a bizarre story of unrequited romance~
Omgggggg. I have one of these crushes for real. I've had a crush on this guy for maybe, 14 or 15 years, but I'm such a kid sister to him now that I can only privately swoon.
The gum shrine is the most memorable part of Hey Arnold for me lol. I wonder if that really works for getting guys to like you? Hmm...
@LauraFisher I still love Helga hahah and yeah, that brow game though lol
