A neighbour's nephew who lived in New York, but came to study in Oxford, so stayed with his uncle & aunt sometimes in the holidays. He was 23, I was 14. We went on bike rides together with his uncle. I used to swoon when he pecked me on the cheek goodbye and fantasize about him every hour of the day blush. I last saw him when I did Camp America aged 20. He very kindly showed me & my then boyfriend round New York. Despite this generosity, XBF still looked daggers at him, I guess my crush was still evident, sigh.

The fox from the Disney Robin Hood film. Then Hartley Hare on Pipkins. Then Timothy Claypole in Rentaghost.
At school a boy called Stephen. Until I heard him singing rude words to a tune from "Jungle Book" and I went off him immediately.

A red-headed girl at my summer camp when I was around age 10 or so. She and I discovered we had identical bathing suits and we spent the entire summer together designing elaborate revenges against the camp bullies. I wish I could remember her name. She was dynamite.

Around the same time it was also Derek the drummer from Bay City Rollers and Agnetha from Abba.

Teenage crush was Bono from age 12 onwards. I met him when I was 17 and managed a coolish "Hi" before blushing hideously and stammering for his autograph.
