You sexually harasses that employee! "Sort of"
You have a crush on him? "Apparently"

This is a classic form of denial. Just acknowlege that it's okay to have crushes. It's part of life, and to treat your pain as somehow special, speaks down to everyone who feels like you and deals with it.
Lots of people do this. Because emotion is practically pathologized, seen as weakness, and something that clouds right thinking as if the only way of engaging the world that is to be lauded is to be a sociopathic robot.

Honestly, her reaction here is totally normal, circumstances of the world being the way it is considered.
