I thought I was being original...

nope - Kidzworld got it before me. (Don't get me started on Xtreme Krazy Spellin')

I was thinking about cyber-crushes: "An attraction to an online persona". You know - blogs, friendster, personals, IM chats, photos, and even google searches. They are fun - that's it.

I am not that original, even "virtual-crush" has been taken. "techno-crush" has not been taken, but it sounds awkward.

so, I shall leave you with the intro to Kidzworld advice column (the italics are mine- bold from article)
