She is older than my mum , or was , bless her.

I very nearly asked the same question of why Lorraine Kelly is a weird celebrity crush

But still one of the world's most beautiful women (HB, I mean), regardless of her age.

I guess Lorraine is not generally perceived as a classic beauty in the same way although of course a vivacious personality and sense of fun are attractive traits too.

She's also 25 years older than me, which isn't conventionally attractive. But here we are.

Don't know if it's weird, but it's still Tom Daley.

It might be that most people who are 25 years older than you aren't conventionally attractive, but that's a very weird way of putting it. You could get a freak who doesn't age and is 104 years old, and is very conventionally attractive.

Rather than piss on it, the fact that you yourself just described this imaginary person as a "freak" kinda lends support to my theory that it is unconventional to be attracted to someone much older than you.

Jeanne Calment was still pretty good looking at 60.

25 years barely bats an eyelid if it's an older guy and younger woman

When I was much younger I had a crush on both Prunella Scales and Penelope Keith.....I think there was a bit of foreshadowing there of the type of women I would fall for as an adult
I do where the trousers in my relationship , when she lets me 🙂

This is a tricky one because I don't just want to go the route of picking an older woman, although I do like Marianne Williamson. She's still cracking for 67 but I (mostly) like her politics and I love just listening to her speak. She has that raspy thing going on. I would even be willing to overlook all the orb woo stuff.

Would Kristen Schaal and Siobhan Fallon count as weird crushes? I think it would be doing them both a disservice but I guess they wouldn't be classed as conventionally good looking. I like them anyway.

I think I have a new one: Daði Freyr. That combination of genuine talent and self-mocking humour is often attractive, I find. And the song is about his baby daughter. Awww.

Is it ok to have a celebrity crush who is 25 years younger, cos I've got a shitload?

I'm 33 years older than Pete Sandiford (and 32 years older than Daði Freyr) so, er, yes, nothing pervy about it at all.

I would go with Kurt Cobain for that scenario.

Does a crush on a cartoon character count as weird?
If so, back in the 1990's there was a playstation game called "Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo", and I used to refer to Ryu as my sexy little babe...
He didn't seem to mind, and still won plenty of battles on my behalf against the dastardly Hsien-Ko.
