Dating at a small school can be complicated, particularly when there are all kinds of rules about canoodling outside of your rank or within your company.
Luckily, the Naval Academy midshipmen looking to cross over to the dark side have a place to publicly declare their affection for one another on the USNA Crushes site, where the moderator (moderators?) posts anonymously submitted love notes.
There are 100 posts as of Friday, with 952 likes and counting. Most of them are unique, but there are a couple of popular kids with more than one admirer. Allison Shafer and Ryan Breznik, congratulations.
Several good Samaritans are also tagging the objects of affection in the comments, tipping them off to their shout-outs. Others are using the page to make a love connection:
