look up any word, like eiffel tower:
An overlapping crush occurs when two people have highly similar characteristics and/or interests, and are liked by, or like, the same person.

Also occurs when two people are liked by one person and equally do not reciprocate those feelings.

Louie: Dude, she likes me too!

William: What the hell?! But I don't even like her!

Louie: Dude, me either... Definitely not.

William: Holy crap!!! We have overlapping crushes!
