The author of "Love At First Click" helps you figure out if your crush is crushin' you back.

5. Gettin’ sextie with it.  There’s no more obvious way to take your virtual relationship to the next level than with a good, ol’ sext. But beware: this one comes with some fine print. If your match sexts you too early on in the relationship, you could be headed for a casual fling versus a long-lasting love.

6. Digital pining.  When your eChatter becomes mushy, you’ve officially transitioned to a new level in your virtual relationship. After all, virtual heartstrings can enhance your in-person connection. So if your match sends a “miss u” or “cant wait to c u” message, go ahead — glow a little!
