  • That's not addiction that's infatuation. You are caught up in the ideal and appearances

    • what does being addicted to someone mean then?

    • Being addicted means that thing has control over you. This person can't control you if they don't even know you

  • I believe yes, because I already experienced what you are talking about, but I am not sure it it is not some kind of obsession, which is not healthy at all...

    • what situation were you in? if you don't mind me asking

    • No problem, I can say I got addicted to some guys only by their looks several times, I imagined they were someone I created only on my mind. I imagined they were perfect without even knowing them, and sometimes I kept thinking about them a long time, always forgetting about the real guys I already knew. That addiction you are talking about sometimes is nothing more than some lack of life experience because when you start to understand that a really cute/ apparently interesting guy can be a total douchebag or the reverse, maybe you will start to see things differently, and maybe stop being addictive, as you're saying :)
