Good Or Bad?

Is it good or bad to have a celebrity crush? I have two: Celine Dion(she's married) , and LeAnn Rimes(married too).

I think it's good cause I know I will never have them. And of course bad, cause of God and all that. But, I think it's more good than bad. It's just a little fun. Lots of people do it. And no, I wouldn't jump off a bridge if everyone else did.

And another question: is it also okay if someone had a crush on a fictional character in a book? It's okay by me, cause they aren't real whatsoever.
I think everyone has crushes, but it's important what we do with that... are we lusting? How far do we take this crush? Also, when someone is married, I think they are off limits for crushes because to be with them would be adultery.

Yes it would be adultery. But, I am a private citizen, and they are celebs. I won't get them at all.
Matthew 5:27-28:
27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

So, there is your answer. Also, didn't you say your profile pic is of her son? I would be careful. I love your honesty and willingness to repent, though!
Maybe you should set your heart on God's plan for a wife? Problem is we have to start obeying Him for His plan to come to fruition...

Not saying that you are not capable; perhaps an adjustment of focus for the heart?

If you're going to ask God for a wife, be VERY VERY SPECIFIC as to what you ask for,
He has a sense of humor (that we sometimes do not share).

Remember to be careful what you wish for, you may get it.

I can't click on anything... there isn't anything.

I thought you looked like your old profile pic, remember? :p Then I thought it was your kid.
Perhaps it is not good in an absolute sense, but in a relative sense it is probably a normal and healthy thing. Let me make a helpful analogy. In an absolute sense many sports, such as football, are probably not good. Yet, since sports and competition are a civilized outlet for our natural aggression, it seems to me that sports are a relative good. Or let me try another analogy. In an absolute sense, sadomasochism does not seem to be good. And yet, in the context of a loving, committed relationship it might be good to have somebody with which you can share your deepest sexual desires in a safe, loving space.
