    OK, let me define a crush for you in this circumstance:

    the attraction of one individual to another due to some kind of attraction.

    Cause: your brain telling you that the crushee is a good mate to produce offspring with thus ensuring the survival of your genes and the best possible chance of survival of your progeny.

    Factors: many, many things, different for everyone.
    Although some crushes, such as those on teachers, can be irrational as they will never be realised.

    An archetype in the subconscious when projected creates the experience of infatuation. It's a clever biological mechanism for bringing people together to reproduce.

    A simple crush. The type where feeling for them burns throughout your body or the simpler, "(s)he's fit" kind?
    For the former matters, I have a few thoughts.

    Sometimes you can't tell why someone stands out, why they capture your heart. It may be something silly, like one day they splash into a puddle and you get soaked, or it's a moment of madness as you hear them say something and realise that they've said the most beautiful thing you've ever heard, or maybe they just smile in some way you can't define but know it's special anyway.

    And then your life isn't yours anymore. There are things not subject to rational thought and this is one of them. They are the primal forces that existed before rationality, before Reason. They have no names, they cannot be described because they are the definitions of our existence.

    ....Are you perchance in love?

    I love it when you say things I've already said but with much sexier words
    So you would like your chosen sow to be articulate.

    Best thing to do when someone has a one-way crush on you is to take advantage of it. A lot of money can be extracted from someone before their pheromones diffuse away and common sense prevails!

    Close enough, but suffering a bit today. I'm feeling hurt because of it and having to delve into the depths of Mechanics (pah!) and taking out my pen, finding my muse and write long rambling pieces to cure it.

    Life could be better, you might say.
    Ah, love is sucha wonderful thing, although it can be hell when things go wrong.
