A hetrosexual man admiring another man to an extreme in a non-romantic or sexual way, more having an intense desire to be that other man.
I have the biggest mancrush on Brad Pitt, I wish I could be him.
Respect, admiration and idolization of another man. Non-sexual. Celebrities, athletes and rock stars are often the object of the man crush.
You can not have a man crush on a friend of yours. That is simply a strong friendship.
Two possible conditions for determining if you have a man crush are:
1. Badly wanting to be that man.
2. If your man crush approached your significant other and began hitting on her, you would excuse yourself and let him have her, at least temporarily.
I have a man crush on Sidney Crosby. I would likely sell my soul to be him and if he wanted to nail my girlfriend, I'd compliment him on his awesomeness and excuse myself.
An intense infatuation of one straight man for another.
Dave really likes Kobe Bryant. He has a total mancrush on him...even though he's 100% straight.
Man crush is a very strong feeling that one straight man has for another, bordering on the romantic but not the sexual. It's love allright but not the love that makes you want to get into his pants. It can be stronger than the love between a man and a woman.
Man crush is like the relationship between Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in Wedding Crashers.
When a guy loves another guy dearly, not queerly
Guy 1: You heard about Aaron
Guy 2: Yeah, his man crushes are getting out of hand
When a heterosexual man has intense admiration for another man, to the point that it seems like sexual attraction (but it's not). This is usually a submissive-dominant relationship, since the person with the man crush will usually do or say anything to win the respect of (or a high-five from) the crushee.
Person 1: Jay's not here, he's off playing one-on-one basketball with Frank.
Person 2: I thought Jay hated sports.
Person 1: Man crush...
Person 2: Ah, say no more.
the true test of determining a man crush is simple. If one has a man crush on someone else, that person would be willing to hold their crush all night long if asked. This holding is in no way sexual, simply emotional. And there is nothing wrong with sleeping in the same bed as another person towards whom you have no sexual attraction. man up.
Dan: i have a man crush Clive Owen. If he asked me to hold him all night long i would say yes
When a man/boy admires another man, can be a footballer, actor, athlete or singer.
It is by no means homosexual, and does not involve sexual feelings.
This 'man crush' can be based upon admiration and sometimes jealousy.
Men can often deny this man crush and slander their man-crush's image and achievements since they are jealous.
However, they feel very strongly about this crush, and it can often be based on the female attention this male receives.
"I reckon Johnny Depp
is a pretty darn attractive"
"Mate, you've got a man crush"
