Jimmy Kimmel turned the tables on crushable heartthrob Zac Efron by asking him who he crushed on growing up. Zac spilled that he had a poster featuring a certain famous supermodel-turned-talk-show-host plastered on his wall as kid, but the young lady that really caught his eye growing up was his babysitter. Zac clearly went for the older women back in the day, as his babysitter Brooke was in college when he fell for her in third and fourth grade. And Zac may still have a chance with his childhood crush — since he said she still writes him handwritten letters to this day. Watch the super cute clip now!
Attention dreamers! I asked you all to share your fantasy "freebie" lists, aka five celebrities you could sleep with without your partner getting mad at you. The choices were all over the place, but 10 hotties rose above the rest as people most of us wouldn't mind getting busy with . . . if we ever had the chance. Take a look and vote on whether you would or would not include these lovers on your own freebie list!
Apparently, we weren't the only ones falling for Brittany's "say what?" lines and sweet dance moves Wednesday. Glee newbie Darren Criss says the whole cast is crushin' on the girl behind the ditzy cheerleader, Heather Morris:
"Everybody has a cool crush on Heather Morris simply because she's the one-line mistress and a fantastic dancer. Everybody just wants to hang out with her and be her."
It's one thing to have a girl crush on a celebrity you want to emulate, and another to have a crush, crush on a friend, but have you ever felt that desperate need to hang out and go on "dates" with someone you find really cool, minus the sexual attraction? What makes someone worthy of a "friend crush"? Share your experience in the comments!
The documentary Catfish, out Friday, is a modern love story. Under somewhat random circumstances, 20-something Nev befriends a cute girl on Facebook. They get flirty and end up in a long-distance relationship of never-ending phone calls and playful sexts. While his brother and friend film the whole thing, Nev decides to go from NYC to Michigan to meet this Megan. Check out the trailer below.
The crazy twist that follows their courtship has people questioning whether or not it's a real documentary, but the premise is likely enough. Many of us have developed crushes on people we've never met in person. Maybe you flirt with that witty guy who works in your company's office across the country, or have developed a thing for a friend of a friend who shows up in your Facebook feed. Whether or not the attraction remained once you came face to face, I'm wondering: have you ever had feelings for someone you never met?
I met the head of my college's English department the first day of my junior year. Swedish and 6'5", he was like a 40-something Alexander Skarsgård. He was a Renaissance man, and by that I mean he taught literature from the 16th and 17th centuries. It wasn't my area of interest, so he told me he'd be my adviser until I found someone more appropriate. I didn't think that would be necessary, I said. It was.
His classes overflowed with women, more so than the average literature class, which is how I envision James Franco's class looking at Yale. The actor will enroll this Fall to earn a PhD in English literature, and by January he'll bypass the TA thing and teach his very own class.
Since Yale banned student-teacher relationships this Spring, students will probably have to keep Franco in their daydreams. Nonetheless, I imagine a few inappropriate crushes will blossom. Were you ever more interested in a teacher than his course?
It's normal to have a crush, whether it's on a celebrity or a commoner. But how many people would say they're in love with someone other than their partners? One in five.
OnePoll.com talked to 3,000 adults, a sizable sample by most study's standards, who were married or cohabitating. And 20 percent confessed to loving another, despite being in a "loving relationship." We should all expect to encounter this 20 percent at some point, says a OnePoll spokesperson, either because we're in love with someone else or our partners are. It's not enough to expect crushes won't escalate, so we should be prepared. How? That's another study.
What crushes turned to love for you?
When I first started dating my boyfriend, he told me that he had a friend who he thought was cute and he used to have a crush on. Suffice it to say, it made me really paranoid whenever they hung out together. My boyfriend would sometimes lie about talking to her and looking at her facebook pictures and eventually I got annoyed by his trying to cover stuff up and called him out on it. We had a series of arguments about it and eventually decided that I would try to be more chill about the situation and he would stop lying to me about talking to her and stuff.
It's been about a year now and my boyfriend left his email signed into my computer where, lo and behold, I saw he'd just been talking to this girl. He apparently emailed her out of the blue to give her "advice" because I guess she is moving to a new city and she posted that she was moving on facebook. In the email he wrote that he regrets not moving to that same city and that she should only contact him via email, because he doesn't check his facebook frequently.

I have a moderately large problem.
Some background —
I have been with my boyfriend about 2 years, friends for about 4. I pursued him and then we started dating. We've discussed marriage and buying a house together, our life is blissful. We don't really disagree on anything and have a good enough sex life (busy schedules can interfere but generally we manage 1-2 times a week). We have a lovely home together and he's supported me (financially and otherwise) a LOT over the last 2 years.
I am currently a training professional on placement with an agency. I finish my placement in 6 weeks time, and also my masters degree.
My problem? A guy in my office who works in the admin team started to get a bit flirty with me a few weeks after I started. I noticed but ignored it because a lot of guys behave like this with me (sorry, but it's true). We started talking a bit more and found we have quite a lot in common. I talk with girls the same way so I didn't think anything of it, honestly. Then 2 weeks ago he sent me an email over our internal mail system & we chatted a bit like that. I started to get a feeling he was trying to push things further. He knows I have a boyfriend —I have been VERY open about this. Anyway, I left the office early last Friday & arrived on Monday morning to find an email from him and at the end "so, should we go for a drink then?"

Sometimes you just can't help who you fall for, but if you're crushing on someone that you really shouldn't be liking, you've got to use your inner strength to squash those feelings for good. Since we're all anonymous here, I'm curious to know who you've had a crush on that was technically off-limits. Was it your teacher? The guy your friend had a crush on? Or worse, your best friend's husband?
DearSugar and Almost a Bride Amanda need your help. Her fiance just confessed to having feelings for another woman, but their wedding is less than two months away. She is at a total loss as to what to do next — do you have any advice?
I am supposed to be getting married in seven weeks and everything is ready to go — invitations go out next week. Two nights ago, my fiance told me that he has a crush on a girl he works with. He hadn't been open with me about his feelings until now, but looking back, I realize that he's lied to me on numerous occasions and then made me feel like I was being a crazy and jealous girlfriend.
He says he loves me and doesn't want to break up, but he also says he has reservations now because of these feelings for this girl. He wants to work on things and says he doesn't want to call off the wedding, but I am worried that I am going to end up with no groom on our wedding day. This basically came out of nowhere and I feel totally blindsided. I love him very much and really want to spend my life with him, but now I'm wondering if I should just get out of this relationship before he leaves me even more brokenhearted than I already am.
