    Hi everybody:

    I'm kind of confused, what's the expression, "to have a crush on someone" or "to have a crash on someone"?
    I know the meaning, but I don't know which one is the right one.

    Thanks a lot.

    Sí, Sancho, to have a crush on someone es estar colado por alguien.

    Thanks to all!!
    actually it was the dictionary who confused me... because in "crush" the expression doesn't appear, but it does in "crash"... :)

    Salutacions de tornada a la meva ciutat! :)

    A ver...
    "to have a crush on someone", con u, es sentir atracción por alguien.

    “fall or come down violently; "The branch crashed down on my car"; "The plane crashed in the sea"

    Sin preposición:
    occupy, usually uninvited; "My son's friends crashed our house last weekend"

    sleep in a convenient place; "You can crash here, though it's not very comfortable" [syn: doss]

    "to crash on someone" after you have a crush??????? Not bad.

    What about if you're not interested in the other person and he/she has a crush on you? Can you negate the phrase or is there another one which would fit better?

    He doesn't have a crush on her? Correct?

    No question, just a reminder for everyone not to mistake these two verbs:
    To have a crush on someone is to be temporarily infatuated by that person
    On the contrary to crash is to collide against or with an object, mainly used in car context.
    Made a mistake, damn it!
