No, I don't think you're stupid. Maybe a little bit naive-but we ALL start that way! Every single person on the planet!
I wrote a blog post recently regarding a crush. I'll share the link.

Sometimes they work-but having a crush doesn't make something feasible. Figuring out if it will work takes time.
Good luck! [Don't take constructive questions and criticism as a personal attack.
