What does Crushing mean?

Crushing means Obsessed

When you’re deeply obsessed with someone or something, that’s what we call ‘Crushing’. It’s a term that spins off from the idea of having a crush on someone, but it’s used as a verb.

This intense fascination, or ‘Crushing’, can show itself in different ways. You might find yourself hooked on a particular TV series or can’t stop watching movies featuring a certain actor. Perhaps you’re eating a specific type of candy non-stop.

Maybe you’re spending hours watching interviews of a celebrity. What’s happening here is that you’re so captivated by this person or thing, that they’ve essentially become your crush. And that’s where the term ‘Crushing’ comes into play.
