Well, I guess you should control your fantasies a bit. I ,sometimes, tend to be like that too but, I made sure that fantasies are fantasies. Though, fantasies usually help us to be more courageous in expressing our feelings.
Of course, fantasies need to be controlled. Still, it's not as easy to me as just telling myself "this isn't real, stop thinking it is". I don't know how to make myself stop.
I know she is not interested in me and she never will be. Still, sometimes, on some level I manage to convince myself that "it's not impossible that she actually likes me" and start hypothesizing what could happen next... it hurts :/
i'm afraid i might lapse into this with a girlfriend who is emotionally distant
I had a crush that started in high shcool and lasted for 2 years, but continued to have an impact for 4 years (so in total, 6 years). I met some other girls and such, but I couldn't do anything because I wasn't "emotionally available"... actually, this might have spoiled a big part of the social side of my studies.
Such a terrific topic for my psychoanalysis class... Anyway, I felt like that during high school, but, you know, time pass, you meet new girls, and you go on.
I still care for the girl of high school, but that's because she is my friend, not because I'm still limerecent with her.
