One of the people I have a cyber crush on is Orange. She is clever, and funny and even though she is anal about grammar, I think she’s hot. She wrote a really good piece on cyber crushes a while ago, you can read it here. She says:
Between the blog-cosmos and e-mail, you know what happens from time to time? You encounter kindred spirits, people who write things so clever or insightful that they seem to be channeling your own thoughts, if only you could write so eloquently. And thus ensues the delicious phenomenon of the intertubes-based intellectual crush.
It's divine, I love it. I love flirting and the whole repartee that goes with it. The internet allows me to have minor flirtations with all sorts of people from all corners of the ecosystem. Doesn’t matter if it is male or female (I prefer female crushes, it is the closet lesbian in me), so long as the person is clever, funny and up for some witty banter.
I have different kind of crushes / flirtations with different people. Sometimes it is a “when I am big, I want to be just like her” kind of crush, other times it is an “I admire her enormously”. I also have “damn, she’s hot”, or “I wish I was as witty as she was”, or “I really, really like her, I’d be friends with her in real life too”.
crushes turn into friendships, (which effectively ends the crush. Pity.) sometimes they fade away. And sometimes my crush turns into true love. Awww, sweet .... cue romantic music.
So, who do you have a cyber crush on?
