    Merriam-Webster defines a guilty pleasure as "something pleasurable that induces a usually minor feeling of guilt." Using the notion of knowledge transference, it can safely be assumed that a guilty crush would be defined as "a strong feeling of romantic love that's typically not expressed but induces a usually minor feeling of guilt."

(Okay, so some people on this list are regulation hotties, but it might be their bad boy and gal persona that gets us boiling.) Either way, we're of the belief that it's better to voice our appreciation rather than let it boil up inside before it becomes too much and we're drowning in all of the feelings.
