I have a girl-crush, on a guy.
You all know what a girl-crush is, don't you? When a girl meets another girl and the chemistry is just right, the talking goes very smooth, and you just want to be best friends forever (I'm not using the abbreviation BFF, because I've friends who use that in a completely different context...). Basically, it's the friend-equivalent of "love at first sight".
I've always thought that this only worked with girl and girl, since it would automatically lead to "potential love interest" problems if it was a girl and a guy, but that is not the case here. He is cute and adorable and everything, but I am pretty sure he was gay. And even if he wasn't, it doesn't really matter. It was still a BFF (not BFF) kind of connection.
The problem with girl-crushes is that they often entail the same problems as regular crushes. "Is she (now he) as interested as I am?"; "Should I call her (him), or will that be too pushy?"; "What if she (he) isn't as into giraffes as I am?" (or is this just me...?)
In the end this was probably just a girl-fling on a boy. It won't grow into girl-love. I probably won't see him all that much, and come to think of it, I can't call him, because I don't have his number (though I can Facebook him, but I am thinking that would be a little creepy, since we don't really know each other that well).
I predict that 97% of the males reading this entire post did so because they hoped "girl-crushes" would be described in a somewhat graphic way.
I also predict that 78% of the readers (of both genders) only scrolled down this far in hope that I would explain the alternative usage of the abbreviation BFF...
