Your Valentines, 2020!

In January, the Quill asked for your anonymous submissions about your crushes. Here are our favorites.

The Quaker Quill sent out a survey in late January asking students to tell us about their crush or someone that they care about. We received countless anonymous responses about peoples’ crushes and have a few meaningful ones that we would like to share:

   So this person is one of the most caring people I’ve ever met. They put others before themselves (maybe too often) and are accepting of people who are different from them. They’re also so creative and smart with an unbelievable work ethic. I have so much respect and love for this person. They know who they are, but I just wanted to tell them how grateful I am that they’re in my life, I don’t know what I’d do without them.

   It’s hard to say why I like her so much. She honestly brightens up my day. When I talk with her, she radiates such good energy in the way she talks, the way she smiles, the way she is. Her personality makes her so much fun to be around. On top of that, she’s so beautiful. No words could describe that. Whenever I think about asking her out, I just remember that she’s out of my league. No matter what though, she’s one of my favorite people to talk to and I appreciate that I have her in my life.

   Last year, I was somewhat depressed. I felt like no-one cared about me and eating for lunch-time was the worst part of the day. I didn’t want to sit next to people who would just tolerate me out of pity, but was so grateful when someone sat next to me and just ate with me. I felt so bad, not able to speak and just cry pathetically, but they stayed with me everyday. We don’t talk much now, because I am still not good at starting conversations, but I still appreciated them so greatly. I hope I can become better friends with them.

   I love my two best friends endlessly! They are the most thoughtful, funny and caring people I know and some of my best moments in high school have been with them. I know that we will be friends long after school ends. Sending all my love 🙂

   I didn’t know how much I cared for her until recently. She is kind and caring, with a smile that forces me, even on my darkest day, to see the positive. She means more to me than I thought possible for someone to. She is beautiful, funny, and warm, but she holds a darkness that I want nothing more than to expel, so she can be as happy as she makes me.

   He’s perfect. He has such beautiful brown eyes and his hair cut is so adorable. He’s not super tall or super short (6ft to be exact). He’s incredibly smart and super chill but he still has that cute and funny spark to him, you know? He’s an amazing guy with a big heart and an open mind. Overall, he’s a 10/10 in all categories.

   I love them because they always understand me, and they love me for the way that I am.

   My crush is absolutely beautiful. I wish I got to spend more time with her. She seems so sweet. Hopefully we can become closer soon.

   There’s this girl who I love so so much. She’s so genuine and sweet and she really is surrounded by a lot of fake people but she just keeps it real and I love her so much. She’s such a good-hearted person and I haven’t even known her for that long but I care about her so much.

   She’s super sweet and is a literally ray of sunshine. I know she will always be there for me and she makes my life 100x better!

   He has a contagious smile with the cutest dimples that lights up any room he’s in. He makes everyone laugh and makes my heart skip a beat when I see him.

   I love him because no one has ever made me laugh harder, or cared more, or been so respectful. Except when it comes to Mario Kart. Then it’s every man for himself :p

   I love them because they always understand me, and they love me for the way that I am.

   My crush is super pretty and really fun to be around. I wish I talked to them more 🙁

   This person is someone who I have known since Lower School. I was never very close with him then, but have admired him for a while now because he is funny, bright and energetic, compassionate, charming and is always keeping a positive vibe. He is talented in so many ways, and I hope he knows that.

   My crush has luscious blonde hair, starts on the soccer team, but unfortunately is over 3,000 miles away. This makes me really upset so day and night I wish for his return.
