Having a crush is simultaneously one of the worst and best things in life.
The sad fact is that the majority of people keep most of their dreams and fantasies restricted to a crush. We like to admire whatever it is that burns us from afar rather than actually go after it because it matters so much to us and we don't want to be heartbroken if we fail.
When it comes to actual people we're crushing on, the thought of them not turning out to be the person we want them to be is devastating.
The best way to get your crush on someone out of the way is to approach them about it, stop it from being a crush. If they shoot you down, you just need to work through that heartache and carry on. If they don't and they're actually interested in being with you, then you need to go and work on making the most out of that possible relationship you can have.
But you'll probably want to steel yourself and get ready to take that step because being thrust into that situation is remarkably uncomfortable.
Something that Twitter user @CeciMula found out the hard way when she was messing around with Siri and accidentally texted her crush.
I JUST ASKED SIRI IF A CERTAIN BOY WOULD EVER TEXT ME AND SHE SENT A TEXT SAYING WILL YOU EVER TEXT ME TO HIM. My funeral will be held at 8pm this Thursday.— Ceci ✮ (@CeciMula) January 17, 2018
I mean we all ask Siri silly things, but for the digital assistant to pull a move so treacherous is unimaginable. As is the frantic despair that Poor Ceci must've gone through when all of this went down.
Tweeting about the whole thing certainly didn't help matters either, something she admits was probably a mistake.
In retrospect, no I wouldn't have tweeted this if I knew it would eventually show up on his timeline. But honestly that's on you for leaving me on read 🙃— Ceci ✮ (@CeciMula) January 18, 2018
In Ceci's defense, however, she was left on read. The savagery is unforgivable.
Someone pointed out that sending the text accidentally is a two step process...
Ceci haplessly in her panic hit send instead of exit when trying to get that gosh darned thing off of her screen, however.
Yeah I accidentally hit send trying to exit. Will no longer ask Siri for relationship advice 🙃— Ceci ✮ (@CeciMula) January 18, 2018
People couldn't believe the level of savagery that Apple seemingly coded into its robotic assistant.
Even people who haven't dated for a very long time know just how horrifying this is.
Other people, as bad as they felt for Ceci, were just happy it wasn't them.
Other people just knowingly nodded their heads.
The whole thing just seems like a dystopian nightmare.
It’s like that one episode of black mirror where ppl go on dates because of their little round computer thing. And how it guarantees that you’re going to find a match with 99.8% compatibility so maybe this is your match— lil uzi flirt (@4thandspring) January 18, 2018
But as it turns out, Ceci won't have to die anytime soon.
Update!! Received a text simply saying: "haha" funerals been pushed up! BYOB!— Ceci ✮ (@CeciMula) January 18, 2018
"Haha" could mean anything, but hey, it's a start.
