What are your LiveJournal Secret Crush Stats?
Tired of the sickly Suicide Girls? Faux geek porn got you down?
Check out That Strange Girl.

The categories in this one didn't really work for me — for instance, having to choose between “Crush you keep secret from that person” and “It’s public knowledge that you have a crush on them”. I didn't think too hard about this, and I used a pretty generous definition of “crush” (while still not counting everybody I might consider a relationship with). I was also very generous with the definition of “secret” (e.g., it hasn’t come up in conversation). Oh, well; mildly entertaining anyway. My graph does seem to be significantly different from others I’ve seen. I’m amused and surprised that my “No crush” percentage is lower than zzbottom’s. Oh, wait! He’s straight! *D’oh*, that explains it. :-)

PS — People are free to ask what category I listed them under, if they’re willing to (1) have me answer in public, and (2) correct me if I’m wrong (“That’s not secret! Why just this morning I heard Howard Stern making fun of you about that crush!”).

I wound going by a distinction along the lines of "I've made it known to enough people that there's no longer a presumption that they don't know" for secret/not-secret. Which isn't to say the person necessarily knows, just that critical mass removes the expectation of secrecy.
