A girl crush?

After several recent conversations and remembering something that Jenny mentioned not too long ago, I would like to discuss a "girl-crush." Before you start judging me, I am not talking about anything romantic, but more of a new friend kind of thing. You know, you meet someone new and you think they are cool and you would like to be their friend. That's a girl crush. I guess guys might have something similar, but they won't even sit next to each other in a movie theater (BTW, what is up with that?) so it isn't really the same. I know I have had girl crushes. It's fun to meet new people that you think are really cool. I say you should enjoy it while it lasts because this person, in the event you actually become friends, will lose their charm. It is inevitable. That's why it is fun to have acquaintances as they think you are much cooler than you really are. Hope I haven't freaked anyone out. Am I totally alone here?

Hello, it is totally a definition in the urban dictionary:

girl crush
feelings of admiration and adoration which a girl has for another girl, without wanting to shag said girl. a nonsexual attraction, usually based on veneration at some level. More definitions

Definitely had a girl crush (in that "want to have a new friend" definition).

The best part about having friends is that they do know a few bad bits and love you anyway.

I still think you are fab :P

I get girl crushes all the time, but I'm not sure if that counts.

Let me tell you, asidely, that it gets complicated when a gay man is the object of an ostensibly straight fellow's boy crush. Very complicated indeed.

That must be complicated. Talk about your mixed signals. I wonder if it is more than a boy crush if the guy knows the other one is gay? I must think on this...
