What does Croomf mean?

A crush on someone who follows you on social media

If you’re active on social media, might have heard the term ‘croomf’ being thrown around. It’s a fun, unique term that’s used to describe a follower that you fancy or are completely hooked on. Essentially, it’s a mashup of the words “crush” and “OOMF”.

Imagine you’re on a platform like Instagram, and one of your followers is someone you find extremely appealing. You might develop a crush on this person and start referring to them as your ‘croomf’ when chatting with friends. It’s a playful way to talk about your social media crushes without necessarily revealing their identity.

But ‘croomf’ isn’t just about romantic feelings. For instance, if you’re a popular content creator, you might find one of your followers so witty and engaging that you look forward to their comments and posts. You don’t necessarily have romantic feelings for them, but you find them so interesting that you wish you could be friends in real life. In this case, they would also be your ‘croomf’.

This term is somewhat similar to another slang term, ‘oomfie’, which is used to affectionately refer to followers who you consider as friends. But while ‘oomfie’ is about friendship, ‘croomf’ has a layer of infatuation or obsession added to it. It’s definitely a term that adds more color and fun to your social media language!
