I find myself, 10 years later, the only hallways being that of my apartment building, or office, and yet HHC's still exist. They could be friends of a friend, a neighbour, a colleague. You never know when they'll be around the corner, or at the next event, so you prepare. You want to look your best, feel your best, and be the most confident version of yourself that you can be.
That being said, are HHC's the right ones for us? Probably not.
They're usually the bad boys, douche bags, forever bachelors. They're exciting cause they're risky!
Would you hook up with them? Probably not.
Having their attention is enough to make your head spin. If they even speak to you, you fumble over your words. The idea of them is so intoxicating, reality would never come close.
High School Hallway Crushes make getting up in the morning worth it. But as we grow older they, like us, have graduated the confined walls and strict schedules of high school hallways. They're everywhere, and that's what makes each day exciting!
I moved into a new apartment recently and I couldn't help but wonder, will I find an HHC here? Will this person encourage me to upgrade the UGG's when I walk Chandler? Dab on some perfume before I take out the trash? Maybe...
You should always put your best foot forward, and if doing it for yourself isn't reason enough, find an HHC to help you.
