    • I wonder if his LinkedIn is active. That would be a minus.
    • At what exact moment did he decide to move from Vaguely Asexual Sexy Librarian to Woody Allen glasses? Good move regardless.
    • First rule of internet crushes: do NOT talk about internet crushes (publicly).
    • Don’t Wiki him. C’mon.
    • OF COURSE we have 11 Facebook friends in common.
    • Hey! He’s never written for Thought Catalog!
    • Wait, we could like, potentially meet. We’ve probably been in the same room before.
    • It’s doomed.
    • [He probably only likes cute Asian girls with straight across bangs.]
    • DON’T TALK ABOUT INTERNET CRUSHES.
