If you have a Platonic crush on anyone, who is it, or who are they?

Asked by Brian1946 (32270points) June 3rd, 2022

I have Platonic crushes on Joan Baez and Timothy Schmidt.

Does anyone recognize the melody of the song sung by Joan?

What is a “platonic” crush?

Jeruba's avatar

@Brian1946, well, sure—I recognize it from the album, Joan Baez Vol. 2 (1961), which I bought warm off the presses (i.e., 1963). I don’t know it from anywhere else, though. I’ve been a fan all these years.

Platonic means not having to do with sex. Just a friendship crush. I love Kristen Bell and think she’s just cute as a bug, but I don’t wanna do her. ;)

Much grass for the explanation. ;)

I think Kristen has done some excellent work, but one of my extant crushes is one of her costars in Bad Moms, Mila Kunis; she was very nice to me when I talked to her at a vegan Thai eatery near my house.

I had a major crush on actress Susan Hayward as a kid. Despite her being old enough to be my grand ma. I wouldn’t call it Platonic though, by any stretch. ; )

I’ve had a man-crush on George Clooney for years. I don’t even particularly like or have seen all his movies. Just something about him.

Also, Sally Field. She’s adorable but I’d just want to be her friend.

@Nomore_Tantrums Susan Hayward? Wasn’t she an incredible dancer or still is…

Plato, I guess.

@WhyNow To my knowledge she was just an actress but may have been a dancer as well. Don’t know much about her career rally. I just always thought she was smoking hot.

My kid sang the Baez tune in school. The rest of us grew tired of hearing it. Elvis cleaned up with it. Of course we remember. And I always thought Kunis just knock down gorgeous.

My platonic crush is Anna Kendrick. She is so damn sweet, and also just a little naughty.

Hallie Berry, Thandie Newton and Nicole Kidman. Oh – and Hugh Jackman and George Clooney but not sure how platonic those crushes are.

Platonic means…no sex?!

Well screw those crushes.

Nomore_Tantrums's avatar

@WhyNow Susan Hayward died years ago. You may be right about the dancing though, at least she probably had film parts as a dancer. But to a young kid on the cusp of adolescence, it mattered to me not a whit.

Kate Hudson and Alexander Skarsgard, Will Smith.

Zooey Deschanel and Richard Branson, in no particular order.
