From Why your life sucks and what you can do about it by Alan Cohn:
Idols always fall on those who worship them. The bigger the idol, the harder it crashes … When you have a crush on someone, you will be crushed. That’s why they call it a crush. You crush reality out of the other person by seeing them through the eyes of fantasy, while you crush your own self-worth. Face it, crushes buy you a ticket to a wild emotional roller coaster ride. For every giddy rush you experience, you will soon be plummeting. You wrap your soul in a little package, hand it to someone you don’t even know, and instruct them, “Here, do with this as you wish.”
