Are these terms exact synonyms? Or are they slightly different in what they imply?

"Fancy", which I've only heard used by people in the UK, seems to me like it implies only sexual attraction. Kind of like "I'd hit that".

"Having a crush on" by contrast, seems to suggest having strong feelings (phealingz) towards the other person.

At least that's how I interpret it. Is there a difference as such, or are they exactly the same?

And for you 14 year olds, it is possible to experience attraction in other ways than sexual.

Discuss.

Such slang is loosely defined. I've seen all of those used seemingly interchangeably*.

*Though, being from Georgia, I've only ever met one person who used the term "fancy."

I'm from the UK and I would never say "have a crush on", it seems really American.

I would probably just say "like". "Fancy" is a bit...childish.

I'd say their synonymous, except I would think "have a crush on" implies short lived feelings, and perhaps more superficial in either not knowing them too well, or merely being curiousity with someone you are close to.

Idk, in high school 'fancy' was the kind of.... *wants to date* sort of thing.

S'past me now. I'm all grown up and shizz (mega lolz) and it seems stupid for me to say that

So erm... 'have feelings for' works for me... or err.... 'wants to plough'

Well, being that I'm 14 and have never really acknowledged the other gender in a sexual light (or the same sex, because I know somebody would imply it,) I wouldn't know.

I use 'like' and 'fancy'.

'Have a crush on' sounds so American. Eww.
#22
Back in secondary secondary school we used fancy, nowadays its 'Like', its the same thing. I think crush means you like the look of the crushee but you don't think you would ever have a chance (like a celebrity etc)
#23
I think they all have the same meaning, but can put a different spin on things. For instance, if I were out with my mates I would say "I have a crush on that fine young female over thar" It would be more along the lines of "Yo ah wantz to plough dat bitch, fo' sheezy."

I'm in a relationship and we haven't said that yet. It's not quite to that stage (though we've discussed it and it's... getting there slowly.). People throw that term around way too much nowadays.

EDIT: I say 'I like her.'

I say that I like her when I know I would date her and I'm interested in her when I would like to get to know her and go on a casual group date.

I have used "fancy" "like" and "Crush".

I hate the word "fancy". It's so childish and it makes me feel like I'm saying "I pick you. You'll do" if you know what I mean?

Also, "like" is not enough. So I sometimes use "I have a crush on you". But I mostly say "Yeah, I have feelings for you."

Exactly the same here.
#35
I hate the term "fancy" but it means whatever you want it to. It can be used in either context. "Have a crush on" does imply more emotion though, I think it sounds nicer too.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

I used to use 'fancy', then 'crush', now it's 'like'. I like 'like' because it's vague.

No I don't think they are exact synonyms. I am too tired to remember why.

They mean other things than their euphamisms for finding someone attractive.
