High School Crushes

In honor of my high school friend Michelle's celebration of love month (Fluttering Butterflies) I decided to delve into my own high school crushes.

In high school I almost always had a boyfriend, but this doesn't mean I didn't have my fair share of crushes. Yes, I had a crush on my boyfriends, but that's not the same. So here, in no particular order, are my high school crushes.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson - He was probably my biggest, and longest lasting, crush. I would actually sit and watch HOURS of WWF just to catch a glimpse of him. I had posters, a pillow my mom made for me, and a collection of magazines and such he had been in. My crush probably bordered on obsession. To this day, I still kind of drool when I see him.

Mike - Name not changed to protect the innocent. My senior year I had a huge crush on this guy in my History class. He was ridiculously tall, handsome, and one of the nicest guys I had ever met. My friends all knew it and, frankly, I would be surprised if he hadn't heard at some point. I will still never forget spending hours looking at the cryptic message he had written in my yearbook... "You're tall too. That's why I like you."

Vin Diesel - The first time I saw him was in Saving Private Ryan and, from that moment on, I was determined to marry him. Clearly that didn't happen, but I did marry someone who is an awful lot like him. I had no idea back then that he was such a nerd. Oh, and can I add that I love the fact that him and crush #1 will be in Fast Five, coming out April 29th? Guess who will be front and center on that one!

So there you have it, my high school crushes. And, I'm embarrassed to say, 2 of the above have not changed 10+ years later. I didn't crush over the guys I went to high school with much, so its not really a long list. I preferred to not mix business and pleasure as it were, so I mostly dated guys I met through friends and such. I guess this don't afford me the opportunity for too many real crushes.

Okay, your turn... Who were your high school crushes?

  1. 'You're tall too. That's why I like you.' !!!! Teenage boys know exactly how to torment girls with crazy things like that. Thank you for playing along :)
