A "crush" usually implies a fleeting attraction. Crushes tend to be intense but brief, and you might crush on anyone from the cute server in a restaurant to the hottie standing next to you at the bar. But for some people, crushes aren't a passing phase. There are zodiac signs who have long-term crushes on the same person, and no matter how much time passes (or how little interest their crush shows), they still carry a torch. Whether it's the result of passion or passivity, certain signs can feel attracted to the same person for months (or even years), and TBH, I can't help but admire their dedication.
As relationship expert Susan Winter previously explained to Elite Daily, crushes often develop because of fantasies rather than real interactions. "We 'imagine' an incredible romance with this person," she explained. "Yet, we don't know enough about them to know if that's even a reality. Most of the intrigue is in our head." Zodiac signs prone to fantasizing and romanticizing (*cough* water signs *cough*) take longer to realize they're attracted to the idea of a person rather than an actual person. For these four signs, a crush is rarely a fleeting thing.
