Wise mumsnetters, please help. I need to un-fancy my crush at work.

He's been away for two days at a conference and it has been BLISS. No distractions for me, worrying about my hair or having to think of engaging chat to have by the coffee machine. It's made me realise how much I need to unchain.

So, how can I stop fancying him? He's sucking up too much brain time. I need tips to turn me off him.

He has toilet roll stuck in his foreskin.

Hope that helps. [It worked for me around 20 years ago. Thanks Karen. x]

TizzyTime Thu 02-Jun-16 20:48:13

Hehehehe. Foreskin a bit too attractive. I'm getting distracted before I get to the loo roll part grin

DoloresVanCartier Thu 02-Jun-16 20:48:14

Sweet corn in foreskin worked for me envy(ill face)

CommonBurdock Thu 02-Jun-16 20:58:23

Personally I'd leave foreskins well alone grin. Unfancying is impossible IME. You need to start fancying somebody else. Isn't there any more talent at your place of work?

No wait there is 1 tip that (kind of) worked for me. Ex crush had the same incredibly boring hobby as my dad. Just utterly dull. He used to take his GF to watch it. I felt sorry for her.

He must have some slightly boring aspect to him?

BigFatBirdFromBirmingham Thu 02-Jun-16 21:55:51

Imagine him wanking over porn in women's underwear.

LumpySpacedPrincess Thu 02-Jun-16 21:59:25

Have sex with him? Or, are either of you in a relationship?

ladyballs Thu 02-Jun-16 22:06:12

Imagine his underpants, full of skidmarks.

TizzyTime Thu 02-Jun-16 22:54:54

Cannot have sex - both married (er, not to each other, more's the pity)

There will definitely be something very boring about him. He does wear a gillet sometime. I tend to overlook it in my list, but it is definitely there.

If only there were other talent!

TizzyTime Thu 02-Jun-16 22:55:12

**lust, not list

I've only ever got over a crush by finding a new one sorry!

TizzyTime Thu 02-Jun-16 23:06:38

But isn't finding a new crush just as tiring?

I'd be exhausted if I was in a perma-crush state. I'm pretty tired now and this one has only been a few weeks.

RainbowsAndUnicorns25 Thu 02-Jun-16 23:07:47

grin yeah true

Get a crush you don't work with?

grumpysquash3 Fri 03-Jun-16 00:04:43

Imagine him doing a big shit and grunting and sweating a bit.
Still fancy him???

icedcherrytea Fri 03-Jun-16 00:51:29

Imagine him with a squeaky voice.

TizzyTime Fri 03-Jun-16 19:54:00

Oh he has a really sexy voice. Pretty much one of the key features of his attractiveness.

I tried focusing on the gillet. It took the edge off a bit.

Auburn2000 Fri 03-Jun-16 20:02:50

Pretend he doesn't fancy women, so nothing will ever, ever happen between you.

NapQueen Fri 03-Jun-16 20:05:14

He has got a third nipple and webbed feet.

Auburn2000 Fri 03-Jun-16 20:05:14

Oh just saw he was married. Sorry!

HippyPottyMouth Fri 03-Jun-16 20:18:03

I once had a moment of relief from a crush when he turned up to work in green woollen socks.

TizzyTime Fri 03-Jun-16 20:35:00

Mmmmm

WappersReturns Fri 03-Jun-16 20:37:11

Imagine his wife has to apply Anusol to his piles. He's bent over in a rather undignified way with a tube of pile cream up his bum and a very unattractive grimace on his face. You do not want that job. <bitter experience>

AutumnRose1988 Fri 03-Jun-16 21:26:02

You guys crack me up grin

IME crushes run their course and tend to die out when the person becomes more 'real'. You might have a chat one day and they blow their nose and look at it for 2 long or do a weird laugh at a joke that's not funny and it makes your skin crawl...having said that...some crushes aren't crushes and are just an attraction you need to just (boringly) suppress for sake of your sanity!

TizzyTime Sat 04-Jun-16 09:34:18

The anusol while wearing gilet - that had me giggling.

The problem is that while I enjoy the fantasy of my crush, the reality is that it's sucking up good mind space. I need that space back.
