1. In the asexual community, the equivalent of a "crush", but explicitly lacking an interest in forming a romantic couple or having a sexual relationship with the person in question. It does not matter if they are "in a relationship", as long as you two can have a deep connection. A squish is an intense feeling of attraction, liking, appreciation, admiration for a person you urgently want to get to know better and become close with. It is different from "just wanting to be friends" in that there is an intensity about it and a disproportionate sense of elation when they like and appreciate you back.

2. Such a person can be referred to as your "squish".

3. It can be used as a verb, "to squish on someone".
A: So are you... dating right now?
B: No, I'm not looking.
A: (thinks: oh good, that means she will date me)
B: No I really want you to hear what I'm saying: I'm not looking to be in a relationship. But I have two squishes right now.
A: You what?
B: Squishes. They're people I just really love and want to be close to and intimate with - but not in a sexual way. I just feel very connected with them and attracted to them and I want to be important in their lives. But I don't want to be in a romantic relationship with them.
A: Huh? You're weird.

A "crush" on someone that is not associated with a desire for a romantic or sexual relationship. The desire to get to know them and be important to them is purely platonic in nature.

Characterized by admiration, respect and affection for a person.

Usually involves feelings generally associated with having a crush on someone i.e. feeling happy when they talk to you, caring a lot about their opinion of you, looking forward to seeing them, thinking about them a lot, intense happiness when your feelings are reciprocated, etc.

Can either be used as a noun ("I've got a squish on them") or as a verb ("I'm totally squishing on them").
Girl 1: I can't get him out of my head! He's so nice, and smart, and I always feel so special around him!
Girl 2: You know he has a girlfriend, right?
Girl 1: It's not like that! I'm just squishing on him.

Someone who is absolutely amazing to you in every way. You smile whenever they walk into a room, look at you, or when their name pops up on your phone. You want to be important to them. A squish comes with a lot of the same feelings as a crush but without the physical part. You just really want to be around them all the time and almost feel like you can't be without them. They would make a perfect cuddle buddy too.
1. Person 1:I love him so much, I want to be with him right now

Person 2: Why don't you go out with him?

Person 1: He's my squish, its not like that

2. I wish I could hug my squish all day every day

A squish is a "platonic crush" of sorts that is often experienced by aromantic individuals though alloromantics can get squishes,too .

Essentially,a squish is a feeling of intense admiration,respect, and almost familial love that's similar to a crush,but just minus the romantic/sexual parts of a crush.It often comes as a feeling of, "You're such a great person!I want to be your best bud forever."

Sometimes,people will become queer-platonic partners with their squish - this is often quite a nice arrangement for the person,as they can have a deep relationship with their squish that isn't inherently romantic.

The type of hug with a long and close embrace which is always comforting. There are many variants on the normal squish, such as:
rugby squish: rugby tackle like with a run up leading to a squish
spinning squish: while squishing, one person is picked up and span around
suprise squish: where the recipient of the squish is snook up on then given a squish
behind squish: like a regular squish but where both the squishers are facing the same direction
tickle squish: where one person in the squish is being tickled
