I agree with RP. Planting the seed of an idea and then patiently letting it germinate can be very powerful. You can't go digging around in the dirt while you're waiting to see the first sprout, even if you're not sure if it will come! Gotta wait, and maybe it will emerge and maybe it won't.
Ok, enough of that analogy.
The point is, especially with such a radically new idea people often need time to process. There's no rush, yeah? A crush is just a crush, enjoy it for what it is and don't let it distress you more than is warranted.
