Seeing the situation, you can help but worrying, what if her crush on that someone grow deeper? Wouldn't it be dangerous for your relationship?
Everyone has their own crush regardless they are in a relationship or not. Even you must have one. Whether it's a celebrity crush or your dream girl.

If your girlfriend develop a crush to her coworker, to her campus friend, or to someone she's just met, it could mean one thing: she found a new, refreshing thing in them. It is the crucial part in your relationship when she seems to be getting bored with (and it's normal, though).
As said, before, it is normal to have a crush since everyone might have one. So when your girlfriend has a crush on someone else, she is just one of those girls. But as a boyfriend, you can't help but worrying hos her crush might affect your relationship. It's okay to worry because it means your feeling for her is true.
To say whether it is normal or not for your girlfriend to develop a crush on someone else, you need to look at the whole situation first. Start with the most important thing, to whom she developed a crush?
If it's just celebrity crush, you can relax. It's not like she knows the celebrity or if he is even reachable for her. In fact, if your girlfriend has a crush on a celebrity, it's a good opportunity to make her happy. If she likes a singer, you can gift her free ticket to his concert. Or if he's an actor, you can take her to watch the movie or simply having movie marathon over the weekend.
But if she has a crush on someone within her reach, things could be dangerous. Even worse when you are in a long distance relationship with her. It will be difficult for you to assess the situation and you can't really verify her feeling for him. If this is the case, you need to make a move as soon as possible. The last thing you want is for her crush to be developed into love.
If your girlfriend seemed to have developed a suspicious crush on someone else, you can't just stay still. But rushing out things is not good either. Here are what you should do when your girlfriend has a crush on someone else.
One thing you must keep in mind, trusting her doesn't mean you set her loose, never felt any jealousy or suspicion. Trusting is being jealous and suspicious in the right place. You can ask her casually about the crush she has. If she pushes you away and put on a defense, you ask more question. But you also have to understand when has many male friends around her. Don't get jealous so easy over her male friend, especially when you know them personally.
Strangling her too much won't do any good to you. Let her deal with her emotion first. Deep inside her heart, she'll know when her crush is going to the wrong way. Just do your best as a boyfriend (she's already yours!) and make her realize that you are all the way better than him. Turn this situation to turn the table around, so that she loves you even more in the future.
If your suspicion get worse, supported by undeniable proofs (text messages, catching lies, different behavior), you have all the rights to find more about it. But if you want the relationship still works, then you must do it smoothly. You can either ask her about it or asking help from her closest friends.
There are two types of crush: celebrity crush, which is normal, and crush to someone close, which you can be suspicious of this. The latter means either she is bored with the relationship with you or she find herself comfortable around that man. This is just another obstacle in your relationship, you have to sort things out but you must avoid making a bad decision.
