GirlCrush, Part 2

My original GirlCrush post is here.
I was out today and picked up a little something for my SIL Hannah. This happens occasionally, I'll be out and see something I think she'd like and mail it to her. We talk on the phone almost every day and e-mail each other throughout the day. So, I got to thinking: Is Hannah my GirlCrush?

Urban Dictionary has several definitions for GirlCrush:
girl crush:
1. feelings of admiration and adoration which a girl has for another girl, without wanting to shag said girl. a nonsexual attraction, usually based on veneration at some level.

2. an overwhelming sense of awe felt by a girl for another girl elicited by varying causes ranging from deep respect to unadulterated lust. may result in the any or all of the following: general euphoria, prolonged sense of inspiration, desire for intellectual-intercouse with crush, simple sexual arousal, etc.

3. When a girl has a crush on another girl, but they don't wanna date them. It's more like they wanna be their best friend.

Hmmm...Let's look at the facts:
1. I think she's smart.
2. I think she's pretty.
3. I think she's fun to be around.
4. We share secrets.
5. We buy each other gifts.
6. We laugh and giggle like little girls.
7. We talk and/or e-mail each other daily.

Oh Crap. How creepy is it that my brother's wife is my GirlCrush? Is that even legal?

Really good example of a same-sex crush is Joey and Chandler's man-crush on Monica's boyfriend, Dr. Richard Burke (Tom Selleck) in 'Friends'. To the point that Joey and Chandler grew mustaches to be like Richard.

It's totally healthy and normal... but if it gets to the point that you're standing outside her window with a boom-box above your head, blasting Peter Gabriel... maybe then you should become concerned.

Haha Danielle, those were good 'Friends' times.

No need to be concerned, I think we all have a GirlCrush at some point in our lives =)

Hannah: <3

Danielle: Note to self, hide boombox and destroy Peter Gabriel tapes! (Plus she lives in Houston which is a 6 hour drive from here!)

Hilda: She's been my SIL for about 15 years, but we've gotten closer in the last 3 - as much as I tease about it, seriously, she's a great friend!

Cecile said...

Oh gosh, I remember that episode of Friends!

15 yrs huh... well, that is a long time to be in the family! =)

Is having girl crushes on family members illegal... if so, I am up crap creek without a paddle - cuz I loves my SIL.
Have a great day Patti!
