Dominic West.

That's it really.
It's just putting me in such a bad mood.
IABVU but I don't care.

I actually experienced this in the mid 90s with an ex. That time I was furious that he wasn't Hugh Grant.

I think I need a psychologist. I'm only half joking.

I've never heard of Dominic West, so I dunno if YABU or not.

I feel the same about my DH never being the character David Boreanaz plays in Bones. At least Dominic West is a real person, suggesting that you have a slightly firmer grip on reality than me! grin

oh dear. I don't think it is that unusual to be honest... every other reply to what will you do on your last day involved the person spending it with some celeb or other.

fishcalledwonder I feel relieved it's not just me! There's a place in my head that is always sad that DH isn't Aragorn. Not from any of the films, noting so logical, but form the book blush

As a teen, I was constantly disappointed that none of my pimply boyfriends were Heathcliff and so would never love me enough to exhume my dead body.

Silkwood Sat 22-Dec-12 23:48:03

Fishcalledwonder - hahaha, that actually has made me feel a bit better. I think my grip on reality is really tenuous re Dominic West. Like I imagine that if he met me, he'd really fancy me and that we'd also be really great friends.

I don't like this celeb fancying shit, it's kind if demeaning. I actually think it means there's something seriously lacking in my life at the moment.

Like Dominic. Ha ha ha ha.

Perhaps invest a Dominic West cut out face mask for your DH, OP?

Silkwood Sat 22-Dec-12 23:50:54

Nixea, I like it, complex.

Thing is I love Dominic AND the characters he plays. Apart from Fred West of course. That was actually a relief to me as I could watch him & stop fancying him momentarily.

At the age of 13 I literally cried in front of 2 friends about the fact that I would never be married to Ronan Keating- now at 30 I'm relieved at this fact as he gives me the creeps plus my OH is soooooo much fitter

fishcalledwonder Sat 22-Dec-12 23:52:32

Ronan is not too faithful either!

Silkwood Sat 22-Dec-12 23:53:14

Balthier - hmmm. Nah.

God it horrifies me that DH probably desperately wishes I was Cate Blanchett or someone.

BalthierBunansa Sat 22-Dec-12 23:53:18

Exactly fishcalledwonder, wishfulmakeupping might have had a chance grin

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 22-Dec-12 23:53:20

Yes fish a creepy cheater

Apparently Dominic used to be s womaniser. Not now though, so he says.

fishcalledwonder Sun 23-Dec-12 00:03:17

Suspect my DH wishes I was Kylie. I'm 5'10" so he can't even close his eyes and pretend.

WeWilsonAMerryChristmas Sun 23-Dec-12 00:07:37

Yars. He is no longer a womaniser because he is my fake DH.

I wish i had Jason Isaacs or those yummy lifeguards from Bondi Rescue, life is sooooo unfair wink

MichelleRooJnr Sun 23-Dec-12 00:13:01

When River Pheonix died I cried real tears because we absolutely would have got together if he'd stayed alive.
Now - it hurts that Max Beasley doesn't live in York.
Cause if he did - he'd definitely give up his current life if he bumped into me in Harkers.

^points to nn^


my dh is nothing like him... its probably a good job i met dh before DT entered my life... he wouldnt have stood a chance otherwise grin

lollilou Sun 23-Dec-12 08:23:14

I thought Dominic West was that little bald guy from morning telly!

ZombiesAreClammyDodgers Sun 23-Dec-12 08:29:33

I know, and I'm not married to Firth's Darcy either (it must be Firth as Darcy though!)

fedupofnamechanging Sun 23-Dec-12 08:30:22

My Dh just said "Isn't he the one who played Batman?" He was getting mixed up with Adam West!

You really wouldn't want to get those two confused grin

Theicingontop Sun 23-Dec-12 08:36:13

Just watch 'Appropriate Adult' on repeat till it wears off. And imagine what that jumper smells like...
