A term coined to mean the lust that one feels for someone that is not full on "I HAVE TO HAVE YOU RIGHT NOW" and yet is not just "Oh hey you're kind of hot." It is that middle ground of being attracted to someone more than just a little bit but still not enough to potentially go out of your way to act on it.
"What do you think of Jamie?"
"Oh he's pretty hot...yeah I'd tap that."
"Ask him out!"
"No, it's just petty lust."
