I know the difference between missing her and the idea of missing her, and it is more than just a whisper in the darkness
All the time
I think about this all the time. Then I run into whoever it is I was missing, and realize it's really just the idea of what they could've been that I miss.
no.. i really miss who i miss!
What's the difference? Isn't all "reality" our IDEA of it?
What I'm getting at, is that it's all an "idea" whether you miss them or not. One reality is as valid as the next.
ummmm.. good one
It's prolly human nature to crave the "idea" of a special someone, having your heart-broken by a special someone, just compounds the misery and makes things even worse...by having a definitive "face" to picture, while being viciously bitten in the butt of you heart-strings!!!!
It's easy to form an ideal in one's heart. In absence, the ideal can supercede the reality. Similar to when you get nostalgic about a time in your life -- where your memory has sanitized the bad parts of the situation.
I don't know about missing, but I'm always attracted to the idea.
Find a way too separate the 2.. and you win a gold contract
the idea of someone I like ashley but not that much because her current bf is a chudloving piece of fecal matter and just thinkiing about kissing her now makes me wanna vomit
I miss the opportunity to get laid and lay next to a warm body... so not really the person or the idea of them, but just the physical stuff. I was really attracted to my ex. hah... there is nothing really profound about that.
