I'm In Love With....

I am in love with Gaara from the anime's Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden. I keep finding my self fantisizing about him and its starting to become more often now.... its hard to love someone whos not real and even harder sometimes to admit that they aren't real. I'm new to this site and i'm glad I found it though. Maybe someone could give me some advice. This is the second time this has happened to me and i'm afraid that the only way i can prevent it from happening again is to take anime out of my life completley. but i don't think i could do that. anime, manga, the twilight series... they are my escape from reality. But now i have fallen in love with some one who isn't real so i have no clue what i'm going to do. I love him so much.... I just wish I could be with him... even though its impossible... god i really am insane....

Characters are reflections of real people. Go find the dude and **** his brains out.

U just like guys with a torchured past lo.l. Just try to think of boys in ur class or something that ull like. Maybe u can switch over to having crushes on celebs?

I can relate to that kind of feeling, when I was in middle school, I fell hard for Prince Zuko (avatar:the last airbender). I agree you should try to put some distance to him and the show for a bit, try to reduce your mindset towards Gaara for a while and focus on something else, give yourself a breather. I used to sort of focus a lot on Zuko too, which made me overwhelmed at times. You don't have to give up being into anime and manga thought, if your into it you should stick with it. You aren't insane, don't be so worried, your just fine.

i can relate to what you feel<br />
i mean, i also fell in love with a fictional character and sometimes i always wished if they truly exists.. hehe

i used to be in love with him like super fan girl love<br />
it started taking over my life and after a rare physiological experience i am now 8 months naruto free i cant even say his name but i used to also be in love with neji

When i was younger i was in love with Darien from sailor moon! later i realized its because of his emotional detachment cold but with a warm heart personality with the ability to swoop in and save the day. I wanted to be saved there are reasons behind why we love these fictional characters and i would guess its a very deep personal reason that perhaps has to do with life at the given time and traits that we would like to have in a real lover.

TeamAroPickle: I completely understand what you are talking about and the same thing is happening to me ( I absolutely hate Aro x Bella fanfics) and my friends say that I am going crazy and being perverted as I am in love with a vampire hundreds of years older than me. I wish he was real - then he'd come and sweep me off my feet!

dont worry im in love with Aro Volturi... yeah (*sigh*) im on fanfiction and i work out my sick romantic facination through my stories. (TeamAroPickle)

Omg yes i love Aro too!!!

Wow... I have to say i'm really surprised by all the coments. I know i haven't been on here for a while, but i just got a message and figure i should start being actiev on the site again. I don't even remeber how long ago it was when i posted this story... It's so strange cause things are different now. I don't love Gaara anymore. Since then, i've been in a relationship, out of one, and remain single to this day, but still maintain a bit of a crush on my new anime characte obssesion, Hitsugaya Toushirou from bleach. I really have to say how happy i am to see that i wan't the only one struggling with this; its nice to know your not crazy. ha ha. honestly, i do still have problems with this stuff, but they aren't as severe as they used to be. Hell yesterday when i read the new bleach chapter something not so nice happened to Toushirou and i freaked. ask my friends. They thought i was insane. XD<br />
But really, i owe all of you guys a thank you, and if my story helped any of you guys, i'm even happier. <br />
So:<br />
I know exactly how you feel. you might just get involved our attacheted or its just a normal thing for you. it still is for me. there usually is a reason why we fall for people who arent real, but we just gotta figure it out. I finally figured out my reason. I hope you find yours and be happy. :)<br />
<br />
To Sonic1992: Ha ha. yea don't worry. You're not alone in all of this. plus when you do those things or watch or play the games like you have for so long you can get attached, so it makes the infatuation grow and makes it even harder to let go. and about your dream, wow. its sounds just like what happened to me. I've dreamt about Toushirou and it felt so real, that i almost thought it was like a message or something, and i felt the same way you did, like maybe some how he was real or looking out for me or whatever. so don't feel alone in this, kay? I hope i helped you a little :)<br />
<br />
To Shiori: i've learned a lot since then. i know i'm not insane, just a little... different i guess. ha ha. course i do like that about myself. :) and thank you for all of your advice. I hope you find out how you feel, and be happy. thank yo so much for your advice. :)<br />
<br />
To GreenDarkness: Hello! XD<br />
and yea i know i'm not too crazy. i've figured out a lot of things since then. and your right, the whole reason i kept fallin fo character after character was because i just wanted a Man. i just became so dependent on love for some reason, and i really don't know why. ha ha and wow that is funny that sounds like what happened with me and my ex boyfriend. he got jealous of fictional characters too. and good luck with your marriage. i wish you nothing but happiness! and thank you so much for all of your advice.<br />
<br />
wow. that certaintly was a lot. lol. well i guess i'm done now. but really, thanks you guys, and if i can help you all in anyway or you guys need some advice, just send me a message and i'll help the best i can! <br />
<br />

Hi,<br />
<br />
There's nothing wrong with you falling in love with a fictional character. It is absolutely normal. I'm sure there are thousands of people who share your feelings. Maybe your heart is seeking a man now. The saddest part is we can hardly find a guy who fulfills all the qualities of the character we are in love with. But who cares!<br />
<br />
I have been in love with Joe Maya from the anime Ninja Senshi Tobikage(aka Ninja Robots) from the age of 11. I am now 24 and am to be married to my boyfriend in July 2010. I am still in love with Joe Maya! And my boyfriend finds my obsession very amusing and he enjoys it when I go on and on about Joe. (I bet he is jealous as well!)<br />
<br />
So no worries sis..you are fine!!!

...dont worry too much about it... I know how you feel, I love Gaara and its hard to admit that he doesnt exist...and now im trying to convince myself that the love I have for Gaara as a best friend/sister wont turn to actual love...<br />
<br />
u arent insane, not one bit..<br />
...shunning something u love from your life completely is pain and hurtful...dont hurt yourself..keep loving anime and manga!<br />
...just know, that even if iit is rare...there are guys like Gaara out there...

omg, I know exactly how you feel....<br />
<br />
I am a die hard naruto anime fan.<br />
And I am head over heels in love with naruto.<br />
At first I felt it was just a slight crush/infatuation, but then it started turning into something so much deeper. I started dreaming of him, fantasizing (sexually also). <br />
<br />
I'm really in love with him and I can't figure out why this happened. It's so unfair that the one I think would be perfect for me isn't real...<br />
I think he is just so amazing...
