A married woman's little helper

Sunday Scribbling response # 47

Crushes, when I first saw this topic I thought, ah, crushes aren't for me, the married woman. Truth be known, my "crushes" help me keep that sexy feeling. I have had crushes on the richer, older, and more attractive. Crushes on the younger, naive and inexperienced. An adult crush, for me is that innocent flirtation thing that happens with the various men I have met. I can instantly develop a crush on someone with a sexy foreign accent. I have witnessed my husband experience "crushes" or flirtations with people. Once it would cause me wild jealousy, but now I have mellowed with age and experience. I know these crushes are part of marriage. Part fantasy, part reality, totally harmless.

As my hubby always says- "I'm married, not dead!"

It's still a little risky, those married crushes. But interesting to think about.

Very honest and accurate. I have a male friend (an actor I have written about). We flirt shamelessly right in front of my hubby! :-) Just teasing, bantering . . . harmless fun. Nothing could ever come of it because then it wouldn't be fun any longer.

Mine is posted, too!

Yes, I've got crushes too... I will own up to having a crush on McDreamy and McSteamy from Gray's Anatomy.... my other crushes are secret :)

Well, I can't say I would be as nonchalant about my fiance's crushes, but I know what you mean. I've had crushes and imaginary affairs; it usually makes my real sex life more exciting!

Ah the crush, keeps us alive. I enjoyed your redirection in crushes. Made me smile.
