When Does a Crush Become Emotional Cheating?

A few months back, one of my married friends admitted to having an innocent crush on one of her co-workers. Since then, his name has come up more and more and I finally had to ask her what the deal was. Had her innocent crush turned into a secret fling without me knowing? She claims that nothing has happened; they’re just really good friends.

In my opinion, her constant interactions with him and his presence in her life seems to have become the kind of crush that crosses the line — becoming emotional cheating. But when I tried to explain this to her, I realized I couldn't figure out exactly what makes a crush turn from silly to serious. What do you think? When does an innocent crush become more?
