It’s not really a “crush” per say….

I mean, IF I was a lot younger …..

and IF he lived anywhere close ….

and IF I were a cartoon character ….

I would totally have a crush on Peter Pan.

For starters, Peter is funny. Really funny. I would even go so far as to say witty.

And he is quite caring. He saves Wendy’s life more than once, he rescues the Indian princess, and he is in charge of the care and protection of all those lost boys. Let’s be honest- he runs a missionary orphanage. That’s attractive.

He loves to listen to Wendy’s stories. That’s just such a nice gesture. I mean, they are all stories about Peter, but none the less.

He never worries. He just takes charge and handles the situation. Peter won’t be intimidated, either. “Bring it, Captain Hook. You don’t scare me.” He’s courageous- how many times does he get himself right in the thick of trouble and then poof, he’s out? Lots, I tell you. A little mind trickery, magic dust, and quick movements and he’s laughing all the way to the missionary orphanage.

He’s strong. He’s smart. He’s brave. He’s a dude’s dude, y’all. That’s all I’m saying.

Sure, there are the obvious drawbacks.

Yes, he wears tights. I understand that is not overly masculine. And this stance, ahem, doesn’t really scream manly. The entire outfit lacks some style. It’s not that he lacks flair, he’s got that. Just style. But who can blame him? He runs a MISSIONARY ORPHANAGE, people. His priority is not wearing the best cut jeans.

No, he doesn’t really have a steady job. And he’s pretty much known around the world for not wanting to grow up. Honestly, I can’t invest in that kind of guy at this point.

And he does carry a weapon, which always makes me feel a bit uncomfortable.

Then there is that Tinkerbell. Jealous little sprite. I seriously could not deal with that kind of co-dependence on a daily basis.

And, as previously mentioned, the biggest hurdle is that I’m not a cartoon.

So, I guess I just need to be realistic here. It would never work between us.

Well, another bites the dust. Sigh…..

[Yeah, you’re right. This is ridiculous. I always crush on famous guys.]

    Mr. Pan looks oddly similar to your Mr. Lovvva … in the property selling terms. Yeah, I said it. What now?

    I was going to leave a comment that said “you are creepy.” Then I saw Molly’s comment.

    Molly is creepy. But creepily, it’s so right.

    I say “thank you” to the girl in the crowd that is honest! We all have a crush on those kinds of guys. Take charge, be kind and mean at the same time, gets the girl at the end and always a happy ending. Sure wish there was more of this in “life”. Oh but there is Heaven!

    I think life would be more fun if you had a crush on Shaggy!


    Did you know that before “Peter Pan” was written, the name “Wendy” was virtually non-existent.

    I have an ex-boyfriend who my friends and I began calling Peter Pan when we broke up. Like Peter, he did NOT want to grow up…

    I have to agree. He has a certain appeal to him.

    I can’t get past how much Daniel reminds me of Alladin.

    I was in love with UnderDog when I was little. I guess that’s why I married Mike? Not so much, he’s the exact opposite.
