Girl Crush

Ever have a girl crush?

You know, a girl that you like a little more than you should? Not in the romantic way, or maybe it is in the romantic way, I don't know....but certainly someone that when you're in their company, you just want to be in it more?

Or maybe it's a crush on someone you don't really know but see often; the beautiful barista that makes your latte or the girl in the bank who always has on the cutest outfit or greatest jewelry.

Guys just don't get this concept....they think it's "gay" if they were to say they thought another guy was hot, or wished for abs like his or even commented on something as innocuous as a pair of jeans or shoes he was wearing. We know better. We get it.

I have had several girl crushes over the years and the latest one is on my dentist. And no, it's not in a romantic way, but I do have to say I love her! I don't really love going to the dentist, but I enjoy seeing her and that makes it all worth the trip. My whole family (who also go to her) feels the same way. At least I'm not alone in my crushing.

She's BEAUTIFUL. I mean, BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL! Great teeth (of course), beautiful hair, classy clothes, gentle little hands, gorgeous eyes with long lashes (since when I'm staring up in the chair, her eyes are all I see), great shoes, magnetic personality and charming disposition. She asks about the family, remembers names of boyfriends and nephews, asks about the last trip you said you were going on or how your holidays were. I aspire to be like her. It'll never happen, but I can dream.

Sometimes, I feel like a dental recruiter when I talk about her. "Oh, you have to go see Dr. C - she's the best. You'll love her." Even my step-father, who is eighty-six, gets all googly when he talks about her. She's just a gem. The epitome of femininity and grace.

And at least she's local and I actually know her. My other chica I have to crush on from afar. Unrequited.

Sadly, she doesn't even know I exist.

Eh, unrequited crushes are always the best--no disappointment ;)

I wish I could find a dentist to have a crush on, male or female. I *hate* going to the dentist. *HATE*

You think she'd be up for a trip to southern Italy?
