Indecent affections?

Everyone gets crushes. Everyone lusts. The question is, what is the appropriate age range for said crushes and lusts? Or more specifically, is it ok for a 26 year old female to lust after a cute teenage boy?

Dear readers (ok, Leah), please meet the object of my perhaps indecent affections -

That's right. The kid from Almost Famous. I swear to God, when I watch the movie Saved! I can barely contain myself, I'm so crazy for Patrick Fugit. It's just that he's so cute, and watching those movies it's easy to flash back to high school and what it was like to have crushes on beautiful/nice/popular boys and just want simple things from them in return.

Relationships these days have so much more riding on them. Some people want to get married, some people don't. Some people spend all of their time working, some spend every night drinking. The stakes are too high. Everyone is busy planning out their lives. Some are frantically searching for someone who will fit into the mold they are creating, while others are clinging to their single identities. It's impossibly confusing to figure out who wants what and where you can go in the grand scheme.

In high school all you wanted was someone to hang around with, someone to hold your hand, someone to go to the football game with.

Hmmm... if only it were possible to approach relationships with such ease now. Then maybe I wouldn't be stuck lusting after a 19 year old actor.

Nah, don't be so hard on yourself, Rees. He's really cute.

You absolutely have to lust after the pretty ones.

Whats the point of life if you can't look at something beautiful from time to time?
