We all have crushes. And why not? They can be fun. It doesn’t mean anything. Or, it shouldn’t.

I’ve had a crush on Renee since I first laid eyes on her in a greasy seafood take-out place about 20 years ago. But, that’s a different.

These crushes are just fun. And what makes a crush? I don’t know. Some connection. Something that draws your interest to another person. Some way. Some how.

Heck, I’ve even had blog crushes. Clink was my first. But I’m over her! In the best possible way. Because now she’s a friend.

Do I still have a blog crush? Maybe. And if I do, I’m not telling.

But, today’s topic is my man crush.

Yes, I admit it. I have a man crush. Does this mean anything? Nope. But, since I’ve said I’m a 25-year-0ld female stuck in a 38-year-old male’s body, isn’t it appropriate for me to have a man crush?

Who is it?

Well, you loyal readers already know.

His name is Jon Bon Jovi.

Le sigh.

Simply — he’s a rock star. I have no other way to describe him. I’ve seen Bon Jovi three times. I’ve been to more than 50 concerts in my time and I’ve never seen a crowd react the way they do to Jon. It’s incredible. And, I just happen to be seeing him Friday night — and possibly Saturday, too.

So, there, I said it.

My name is Mike, and I have a man crush. And his name is Jon.

So, given that I just spilled it — who is your same-sex crush?

    I’m sorry, did you seriously just type “Le sigh”?


  2. Stephanie says:

    Mike, you absolutely kill me.

    “Le sigh”. HAHAHAHAHA.

    Also, you cannot say that you might have a blog crush without saying WHO! SECRETS DON’T MAKE FRIENDS!!

  3. Molly says:

    Did you just say “Le Sigh”? I think you did.

    I’m not sure we can be friends anymore.

    What.Ever. 😉

    Miley Cyrus. But if you ever accuse me of it I’ll deny it with both hands.

  5. JC says:

    Thank GOD its jon bon jovi and not john campbell!

    Both John and Jon are from NJ, but, at least it’s Bon Jovi.

    By the way – did you know that Bon Jovi was going to be called

    Bon Jehovi and the Witnesses?

  6. Fritz says:

    i would have to say Angelina Jolie… Le Sigh… she is just amazing, and i agree about the way a crowd reacts to jon, i saw him at the new tiger stadium.

  7. OH MY GOD, who is your blog crush? you cannot say that and leave us all hanging!!!

  8. heatherdc says:

    definitely Heidi Klum, she is probably the most adorable person ever. Project Runway anybody?

    and my bf has a man-crush too. Sean Connery. Which I can be okay with, because he was Bond. mmmmm

  9. elizabethews says:

    Oh, you rule. I love that you admited your man-crush.
    My woman-crush…. I agree with the above – Heidi Klum. But that’s more of I just want to be her friend. I think she would like me very much (and then I could meet Tim Gunn). But who else… probably Charliez Theron.

  10. Anna says:

    Kristen Chenoweth, of course.
    And a long time ago, Joey Lauren Adams, but now not so much.
    And a teeny weeny bit Alison Janney, but mostly because I wanted to be CJ Craig on the West Wing

  11. JenBun says:

    Mike, you are SO frickin’ funny!!! 😀

    My girl crushes? Hmmm… Drew Barrymore, Liv Tyler, Kate Winslet, and now I kind of want to be BFFs with Ellen Page from Juno.

  12. erin says:

    Le sigh! Haha!

    Not a bad man crush to have….

    My girl crushes: Natalie Portman and Rachel Bilson. I guess I have a thing for petite ladies.

  13. cdp says:

    I have an unhealthy girl crush on Reese Witherspoon. I like, want to be her. And if scoring Ryan Phillipe just HAS to come with the territory, I suppose I could do that too. Sigh. Life is hard.

  14. Each says:

    My woman crush is Monica Belluci, I would totally change teams for her.

    And my Old Man? He has TWO serious man-crushes; Bobby Flay and Anthony Bourdain.

  15. Melissa says:

    I’ve blogged about mine before – Samantha Brown. Love her. There are others, but she’s my main one.

  16. Pessimistic Redhead says:

    Le sigh. Le laughing my ass off.

    I have a girl crush on a designer who I work with. She is fashionable and friendly, the 2 qualities I lack. Famous girl crushes? Oh my holy Julia Roberts and Kate Beckinsale. I just think they’re devine.

  17. Stormy says:

    Am I the only male who reads this blog? Sheesh.

    I just found out I’ll be attending the show Friday as well. I can hardly contain my enthusiasm. At least Mary will be happy.

  18. Chelle says:

    Le sigh? Le seriously?

    If you want to go French, then I insist on a kiss. A French Kiss if you want to know my girl crush…

  19. tia says:

    christina aguilera.

    hands down.

  20. cdp says:

    Had to come back and add that I have a raging girl crush on Victoria Beckham.

    Although I definitely feel more strongly about her hubs. DAMN.

  21. Chelle says:

    My above comment is a clue… Just so you know.

  22. CuriousC says:

    Catherine Zeta-Jones would be mine. Or Isabella Rosselini.

  23. L B says:

    my girl crush: Kim Kardashian. Yup. Love her.

  24. Nic says:

    I’m going to have to say Jennifer garner

  25. pie says:
