I think I have a crush, is something wrong with me?

I am 46, my 27 year old son has a friend that he served in Iraq with he is 39. When he spoke to me at my son's wedding and actually I got butterlies in my stomach. I thought it was just the excitement of the day. But everytime he speaks to me my heart races, he is so respectful, always calling me ma'am and he speaks so wonderfully about my son and how proud I should be. I see my son as a hero. Am I just seeing this man as a hero or am I developing a crush? I think I am a little old for that.

  • I see nothing wrong with having a crush on another man as long as you're unmarried. Just because we're in our 40's doesn't mean we can't experience those same butterflies as when we were a lot younger. Just go slow and see how it goes. He sounds like a very nice young man.
