I'm 41, he's 67(!?!), but i'm obsessed, want to write florid fanmail and am watching you tube clips of him all the time. Talk about undignified blush .

I don't know whether it's a pre Menopause thing, tbh.

I went through a similar thing and so have most of the Women, who I've confessed to, around your age.

Can't you tell us who it is, so that we can judge you? grin

BlunderWomansCat Tue 21-Jun-16 12:43:53

Go on, tell us who it is grin

My bet is David Essex grin

Buy a poster and sellotape it to your ceiling, get a diary with a lock and write him love letters every night.

You will grow out of it, you know. I did! i was fourteen and it was NOT David Essex, it was someone much, much worse

Toooldtobearsed I thought David Essex too, but when I checked his age I found that he's 68.

Who is it? Can we have a clue? It's not Bryan Ferry as he's 70 now.

Sorry OP, unless you tell us who it is we can't tell if YABU grin

Oh God. Lionel Richie is 67...

DesolateWaist Tue 21-Jun-16 13:11:23

I cannot comment unless you say who it is.

Toooldtobearsed Tue 21-Jun-16 13:13:40

Nooooo, it cannot be Lionel Richie. Op would never admit to that, surely?

DJBaggieSmalls Tue 21-Jun-16 13:27:48

Its either Lionel Ritchie or Ted Nugent.

It's John Foxx, original singer of Ultravox so pop star is maybe stretching it although he had a few solo top 40 hits.

Toooldtobearsed Tue 21-Jun-16 13:33:59

Well, he got better as he got older.

Is it as he us now, or as he was then?

Hormones. The answer to everything. You WILL grow out of it eventually😆

Thought 67 was a bit old for an 80s star - more 70s surely.

DH is a fan but he doesn't have a crush on him. grin

squoosh Tue 21-Jun-16 13:48:32

Is this a sudden onset crush? I doubt he's had a soppy fan letter in a while. I say write to him and make his day.

squoosh Tue 21-Jun-16 13:49:19

I've had a google. Yes, he's got something about him.

sleepwhenidie Tue 21-Jun-16 13:51:44

yess...something quite gnomelike about him squoosh grin

Sorry OP, I'm in the YABU camp!

liz70 Tue 21-Jun-16 13:52:22

Go hunt him down on FB.

auldspinster Tue 21-Jun-16 14:21:56

As he is now. I liked his music for a while ans thought he was gorgeous when he was young but I had a rather erotic dream about him as he is now a couple of weeks ago and it's precipitated this situation.confused

Mrsraypurchase Tue 21-Jun-16 15:11:36

Ah, John Foxx (real name Dennis!!)

yes, very nice.

Mrsraypurchase Tue 21-Jun-16 15:13:43

Feel the need to sing Underpass now. smile

EmmaWoodlouse Tue 21-Jun-16 16:18:53

Its either Lionel Ritchie or Ted Nugent.

Ted Nugent would probably shoot you if he heard you'd called him "pop".

IggyPopsicle Tue 21-Jun-16 16:24:13

Meh, he's not my cup of tea but I can hardly judge, seeing as I once had a crush on Des O'Connor after having a rather erotic dream about him.

I don't need to do the signature practicing thing cos his real surname is the same as my given one.grin
