Go Super to Listen Go Super!

A lot of people have a crush on Brad Pitt, even though they’ve never met him. A crush is a romantic feeling or attraction to someone you may or may not know. You can have a crush on a guy you’ve never talked to but think is really cute, or you can have a crush on someone you’ve been friends with for years, but never dated.

Sometimes we have a crush on a person we find attractive, but once we get to know that person better, the crush goes away. The actress Jessica Chastain knows Brad Pitt better than most. She was his co-star in the recent film Tree of Life. She says he’s more than just a pretty face. He’s also funny and fun to be with. After getting to know him better, Jessica still has a crush on Brad.

The word crush can refer to the romantic feelings we have for someone, as in, “I have a crush on Mason.” But we can also use the word crush to talk about the person we feel attracted to, as in, “Mason is my crush.” Finally, you can also use crush like a verb, as in, “I’m really crushing on Mason right now!”
Who do you have a crush on someone? Has anyone ever had a crush on you?

I am very curious why some people are exchanging information about medicine here?  And they sound they know what they are talking about.  I have tried to use “crush on” to say something about them but I cannot think of anything witty.

I remember when i was in school,i like many actor and actress who acted many movies and from hollywood,and really had a crushed on them at that time,even though i don’t know them backgroud at all ,just watching them on moive,i bought some show bill about them and pasted on my wall,so that i can see them anytime,but now i m more sanely,beside,in nowadays,internet more popular in the world,so everyone can touch the internet and sufring on it more easy,only need one laptop it’s ok,you can make friend on internet with all of the world,really it’s convenient for our life,but i found that many people have a touch on someone  after them chatted sometime later,even thoug them have never meet by face to face,but alrealy fall in love ,but always broken up after get the true meeting,because found that it’s totally difference with chatting online,so more dispoint for that,some of people of my friend ,have met them network friends many times ,dispoint each time after met the friends,so as for me ,i just don’t believe that fall in love on internet,but not really ,maybe sometime we can find someone who we really love each other,just depend on the fate.

Yeah…
I’m also standing among this ‘LONG CUE…’ of those who’ve had ‘CRUSH…’
& It’s a Strange Co-incident that any girl on who I had crush…
She had crush on me too…
& I didn’t tell her untill she said that she has too… ;)

& I liked the comment from my dear Mshare…
Butterflies in stomach… haha… ;)
I feel the same…
Additionally I feel Violens & Guitars being played around me…
when I feel her presence…

Really… I feel it but in imaginations…
& yeah… it’s a fantastic feeling… :)
