Monster

Consider my consciousness completely hijacked.

I should know better, in fact I do know better. Doesn't stop me though. That is the problem with this thing...it doesn't feel stoppable.

It has a life of its own.

I am infatuated like a school girl. Stupid with it. 

I would quite happily do an Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind on myself right now and erase all knowledge of this person from my head. 

If anyone out there has a cure for infatuation I would love a prescription.

Enjoy th einfatuation. It makes us feel alive. We allknow it doesn't last, that's why I say... go for it 100% all out. <br />
<br />
Stay prepared for the landing which can be quite hard. <br />
After all, when humans fly without wings and the air under the wings disappears..... <br />
vertical fall. Logic says nothing lasts forever. (no, not even cockroaches.)<br />
<br />
But it is one hell of an amazing flight. <br />
Well worth the fall.

dude, you only live once. <br />
<br />
take stalking to a new extreme, make sure you have a story to tell of this later.<br />
<br />
we wouldn't wanna end up a lame homebody now would we? <br />
<br />
second, live it. enjoy the anticipation and such that the stalking phase may bring, second, get it over with before the emotions fade. Cause they won't come back once they're gone. <br />
<br />
third, repeat. Realize you never should have had feelings for such an idiot, and go find another idiot.

Crushes can be so awesome - the butterflies, the warm fuzzies, the lovely thoughts just before drifting off... <br />
<br />
I think the "cure" is simply letting it happen and enjoying it, whether you meet him (assuming it's a "him") or not. Life is a one-time only experience - grab every joyful moment with both hands, legs, lips and whatever else you can use to hold on with. <br />
<br />
Sending you plenty of chutzpah, not that you need it. <br />

Mr.M

I have a recommendation: just tell him you have a crush on him. <br />
It will go one of two ways. The crush either blossom or quickly die. <br />
<br />
You have to be willing to take a risk.

Your presc<x>ription is to come visit me and I will get you so drunk you won't be able to remember your own name, much less this person you're crushing on.

I prescribe getting to know that person well. It seems to degrade infatuation.

Sorry MissM but no, luckily my infatuation is a mild one and sort of comes and goes but I have had it for many years.

There is no cure for the feelings. But that doesn't automatically mean you must act on them.

I think its EPitus, very contagious!<br />
<br />
Yes, crush transference.... been practicing that.<br />
<br />
Does work but lingering symptons of 'first' crush do tend to break out from time to time and need soothing balm of friendship to be renewed for immediate emergency treatment.<br />
<br />
Patient expected to make full recovery and lose stalking tendencies after a short while.<br />
<br />
Tricky stuff this medicine. Does not work in 100% of cases. And then the CRUSH may mutate into something REAL and cause chemical chain reactions in the beholder. Beware - handle with care.

Know the feeling.

I'm going to be the contrarian here!<br />
<br />
MissM, it is both a wonderful and a terrible thing to have a crush like that. <br />
<br />
There are one of two possibilities. Either it is just a crush -- an intense one at that -- or it could be the start of something much deeper. I think every great relationship starts with a crush of sorts. But how to tell the difference? I think there are a few ways:<br />
* If it is passing (in a matter of days or weeks) <br />
* If it is ba<x>sed on superficial attributes of the ob<x>ject of the crush<br />
* If it is blind to other aspects of the ob<x>ject of the crush<br />
<br />
My suggestion is to sit with the crush, to recognize you feel it, be aware of it, live with it, and wait for it to pass. And if it doesn't, act on it. There are so few times in our lives where we meet people with whom we might achieve the holy grail, it would be a shame to give up on one.

Ummm crushes! That's a difficult one, Dr Wisi prescribes - time - that great healer, just try and moderate your stalking and hopefully maintain semblance of dignity and let time show you that the feet of clay really is a BIG draw back of this particular crush. Oh and a lot of alcohol might help - but it also might make you do stupid things so becareful this particular medicine!
