When Bad Crushes Happen To Good People

This would be my Postsecret postcard if I ever sent one:

I have a crush on my father-in-law.

Am I the only one? No one ever blogs about that topic...Is it really THAT inappropriate? Or taboo? I've just always had this thing for older men...

*Hangs head in shame*

You made me gasp! (But I am kind of a prude).

You didn't explain why.... what is it about him?

I let out a mental gasp too

Been there done that. ;)

i think that's the problem with crushes- they are irrational. I can't explain why...

Intellectually, it makes perfect sense to me. Since you're obviously attracted to your husband, and you like older men...it's a no-brainer that you'd be attracted to the older-man version of the guy you're attracted to. My husband's father died from lung cancer when my husband was 16. I never had the chance to meet him. All in all, assuming appropriate boundaries are maintained, I'd say you're lucky to have him around.

I don't have a father-in-law because my husband's dad died when he was a kid. BUT that being said they really do look a lot alike so who knows? Maybe I'd have a crush on him if he were still around.

Ugh, my father in law not only grew a beard, but he let the scruffy neck hair grow too. Yuck!

By all rights, I *should* have a crush on my father-in-law, because I married a younger version of him.
