    Madly in lust with Welsh rugby player Mike Phillips - I'm married with 3 grown up kids - surely this is wrong?!

    You're never too old for a crush. My 80+ year old mother had quite a thing for David Beckham when he played for Man U

    Too old at 48 to have a crush?
    The question should be: Too young at 48 to have senile dementia?
    Pull yourself together, woman!

    Suppose it proves the brain's still relatively intact

  8. Ooooh I say, he's rather dishy.

    Those brooding looks.......................
  10. I wouldn't worry about it - I've had crushes all my life (starting with Pete Duel). I put it down to suppressed creativity.....

    or suppressed something, anyway.

    I remember admitting to my big sis that I thought Dame Margot Fonteyn looked remarkably fit and well for her age.
    She then let all of my mates know that I fancied a million year old woman.
    I DIDN'T!
    (This was around 1975, MF did look well didn't she?)

    If you had seen the state of me when Gavin Henson was on Strictly, you'd know I have no problem with this!

    Never too old for a crush!

    Mike Phillips is quite yummy, although I'm more of a Jamie Roberts girl myself [​IMG]

    Never too old for a crush. It puts roses in your cheeks.

    Eww but no, not my cup of tea.
  17. Check out the thread entitled weird crush if you are worried. There are plenty out there with very strange crushes, yours will seem very sensible by comparison...
  18. Nope not too old. I'm 38 and REALLY have a thing for the English actor Tom Hardy. *swoons*

  19. Yes, she danced beautifully well into her 60s and beyond and was quite stunning. They do say that she was in love with Rudi Nureyev and that his youth and vigour kept her young. A new lease of life! She defied convention in ballerina terms agewise and still looked lithe upon her pointes.
    Much preferred Nureyev myself - handsome dark and chisselled. Those Russian cheekbones.
  20. I'm retired and a man, and I get crushes all the time. Two recent ones have been Anne Hathaway and Lauren Laverne. It keeps me feeling young
