Friday Night Conversation: First Crushes
Friday night, finally! Who wants espresso macchiato or a glass of a nice Ribera del Duero? Or something that’s not on the drug index? (do first crushes belong on that index?!)
Tonight’s topic originally sprung from an idea of Fitzfulke, who wondered who was the singer (mezzo, soprano, countertenor…) that made us realize “okay, I’m gay”.
In a more general approach, that led to the idea of “first crushes” – from the private ones (the cute blond boy next door in kindergarten… that is, until I saw the kindergarten teacher) to the celebrity crushes (in my cases, a certain soprano instead of New Kids On The Block).
Do you remember your first crush? Who was it?
Was there a crush that made you realize you’re gay (or straight, or bi, or *)?
If you’re into opera: which singer knocked you off your feet in a crush epiphany (if there is one. Or two. Or three)?
Was there a singer – opera or not – or a song that played an important role in figuring out how attraction works for you?
What’s the stupidest and probably also cutest thing you’ve ever done in relation to a crush?
Any current celebrity/movie/TV/sports/opera “crushes” or any of fond reminiscence (coughcertainstarshipcaptaincough)? Let’s hear it!
