I think now and then everyone gets them. It of course isn't so bad if you are 21 and like a 17 year old celebrity but it veers into uncomfortable territory the older you get. These crushes can vary between just wanting to hang out with the person to saying "If I was that age, I would date so and so" to the downright creepy love/lust that border on pedophile alert (I'm talking to you Hayden Panettiere fans). I will say right now my age inappropriate crushes are probably more the "If I were younger..." variety. With that, I present you with my age inappropriate crush, Ryan Sheckler. Ryan stars on the show "Life of Ryan" on MTV and he's a professional skate boarder. The kid is really down to earth for someone so famous and he seems like a genuinely nice and responsible 17 year old. Which is downright refreshing to see on a network like MTV.
-He can afford to buy his own house at 17 (but ended up not to spend time with his brothers).
-He seems genuinely kind and considerate.
-He is loyal to his friends.
-He is family oriented. Much of his show revolves around Ryan trying to be there for his little brothers and his divorced parents.
-He doesn't want to date women who are only interested in him b/c he's famous.
-He's very driven and talented at what he does.
-He has a new shorter haircut that is quite fetching.
-Skate boarders are cool.
-He cries on national television without shame.
-He has a penchant for cheap looking blondes who have just broken up with their boyfriends.
-He wears really big diamond studs on his ears.
