How it works?
You can express a crush on the person you like by adding their name and email address on CrushAider. We contact such person(s) you have added on your behalf, and without disclosing your identity, we inform them that ‘Someone has a Crush on them.’
We then invite them to use our website to express crush on people/person they like by adding their name and email address.
Now, if there is a Mutual Crush between both the parties we connect them. However, if that is not the case, we do not disclose identities of the parties involved to each other.
