We've all been there.
You're in a new job, doing your thing, when the hottie from finance walks by and leaves you a red-faced, spluttering mess.
Workplace crushes are completely natural, and what's more, they could even be good for your health and well-being.
Well, that's according to Jason Hughes, Founder of Leicester Centre for Psychodynamic anyway.
Speaking to Stylist, Jason explained how the butterfly feeling could actually help us feel better about ourselves.
“We all want to feel good, crushes are our imaginative and creative way of identifying those things we prize in others, which we struggle to see in ourselves.”
He continued, “Crushes help us to feel alive, help us to feel, and help us to imagine – this is especially important when we might feel that we are trapped in a routine, stuck in a job or relationship where there is little new and vibrant.''
“Don’t ignore them, but pay careful attention to them and what they might be saying about you…”
And if you think your crushing days are behind you, think again. Those lustful feelings can reveal themselves when you least expect it, even in adulthood.
See, crushes stem from the same part of the brain believed to be responsible for drug addiction.
Imagine how many workplace romances we're missing out on while we work from home. It's quite tragic really…
