  1. Yes, the entire site disappeared for me yesterday, but now I’m able to access it. But when it was down, I too was thinking that this might be the end for us. 😞 I’ve gotten bored with COs too, so that’s understandable. I’m not bored with my current one, but I think I may have discovered a new guy who might become a future CO. I don’t know enough about him right now to say whether he will, but I just know how my obsessions start and my interest has been piqued. Right now, I only know his name, age, and that he’s in a band. I don’t even know what his band sounds like, but if they aren’t any good then it won’t work out. lol Maybe I should refrain from listening to their music for as long as possible because even if they are good, I don’t need another CO right now! 😩
  2. Thanks, but it’s just not the kind of behavior that I want to repeat in the future, so I won’t. I think that gifts should be reserved for people who I have an actual relationship with.
  3. For one thing, it's not like I'm a person who loves to give gifts in general, so it was out of character. I'm also not the kind of person who gives gifts to celebrities because I don't feel like they need (or particularly want) gifts from fans in most instances. As I said, this person is not a celebrity, but still. He was a random stranger on IG, so why give anything to him? I was basically just doing it to get more attention from him (which I did get a little). But it was still very cringeworthy and unnecessary. Eww.
  4. Yes, I think the prevalence of social media can definitely fuel these obsessions. You mentioned some "non-celebrity" COs and I've dealt with that too. There was a "model" who I only knew of via IG who I became a bit obsessed with for some reason. Maybe because he was a nice guy and he would attempt to be nice to his followers and chat with us. He also looks a little bit like my current CO (but not that much, maybe just a similar aesthetic). But now I cringe when I think of my thirsty behavior. I even sent this guy a gift for his birthday (ok, and there was one other random gift too for no reason. Yes, he thanked me for both). But I eventually lost interest and unfollowed him on IG. I wish I could say that I was a stupid teenager when it happened, but it was like two years ago. 😩
  5. An actor just can't hold my attention for long. With musicians, I can listen to their music every day, watch tons of their stuff on YouTube, and go see them on tour. There's only so many times I can watch the same movie or TV show without getting bored. There were actually four actors who I took an interest in over the past two years, and after being obsessed for a few weeks or months, I got over it. My musician COs usually last for years though. My current musician CO has done some acting. I don't really think he's that good at it, but of course I'll still watch his show whenever it comes out. lol
  6. Hi! I totally understand what you mean about not wanting to know about his personal life and just focusing on the character. I usually fall for musicians instead of actors, but there was an actor who I liked but then started to like much less after finding out some things about his personal life. And I agree that finding out about their significant others makes things less fun. I like to think that I’ve mostly “accepted” my CO’s wife, but then she’ll post a picture or video of them together that makes me jealous again. lol So yes, just enjoy your fantasy! 😄
  7. So if you think a lot of what they say about him is true, then the problem is him and not LSA, and your anger is misplaced. But if you choose to like him despite his flaws then who cares what anyone else has to say about him? He’s definitely not the only guy with a PR girlfriend. Some people on the Internet will always be unnecessarily mean because it’s easy to do that when you’re anonymous.
  8. I’ve read some of the threads on LSA and I usually end up laughing. I guess I’m lucky that the people there don’t care about or simply don’t know who my COs are for the most part. There is one actor who I used to like who I don’t like as much anymore after reading the thread about him, but that isn’t LSA’s fault. I just got bored with him. But if you find the site too negative and really don’t want to go back, maybe you’ll have to add it to your list of restricted websites until you have the willpower not to look at it on your own.
  9. Well now that 2019 is almost over, I just want to say that I hope that 2020 will be a better year for everyone. My beloved cat died earlier this year and that was obviously tough, but things got better. I credit my CO with helping me cope with the loss. I had his music to comfort me and help me through it. My CO also happens to be an animal lover and he has cats of his own, so when I decided to get a new kitten, I named it after him. I specifically told him that I wanted to do that (I’m a nerd) and he gave me his blessing. 😄 My kitten is almost a year old now, but I don’t think I ever shared that story with you guys, so better late than never! Looking forward to see what 2020 will bring!
  10. @Myshka, that’s great that you’ll get to see them live! So now we’ll both have fun concerts to look forward to in 2020. Maybe my CO might even go to see your CO’s band when they tour since he’s such a fan. 😄 (Oh, and I just tried to send you a message but the messaging system doesn’t seem to be working right now, so I’ll try again later).
  11. I too thought I had maladaptive daydreaming, but there’s also something called “immersive daydreaming.” Since I don’t want to stop daydreaming because I enjoy it and it doesn’t prevent me from doing other important things like going to work, I was told that my daydreaming doesn’t qualify as “maladaptive.” Not that the people who told me this were experts, but they basically said that I couldn’t join their little “maladaptive” group since my daydreaming doesn’t cause me pain and suffering. I still think I spend way too much time daydreaming since it’s my default state of mind, but I’m not looking to change that.
  12. Hey there, that’s awesome that you finally got to meet him! I’m glad everything turned out great especially since you helped fund the show. You made it happen! I’m sure it was a very cool experience since it was such a small and intimate show. I had dreams that no one else was going to show up to my CO’s show except for me, but that’s not exactly what happened. lol Were you pretty calm when you met him? I figured that I would have the chance to meet my CO since I knew that he always takes time to meet with fans, but I was still nervous about approaching him. I was stressing about it from the moment I got there. I even contemplated just going home when they were done performing instead of sticking around to meet him, but I figured I would regret it if I didn’t seize the opportunity, so I did! But sadly as this always happens to me every time I meet a CO, I still don’t feel like I really took in the moment. It just happens so fast and then it’s over. Or maybe there just won’t ever be a time where I’ll feel satisfied, and I’ll just have to keep going to as many shows as I can. Which isn’t completely terrible, right? I want to go to as many shows as I can for as long as I can because I just love going to shows! @Myshka, there’s a movie about your crush that I saw and I wonder if you’ve seen it? I really enjoyed it and the incident that you mentioned about him dying and being brought back to life is in the movie too. He was very fortunate to get a second chance to turn his life around. I’m actually not too familiar with the band, but I know a lot more about them now since I saw the movie. Maybe I should watch it again! I don’t even know what your crush looked like when he was younger because I’m picturing the actor who played him in the movie. lol But I do know that my CO (not the newest one, the other one that I’ve had for two years now) really looked up to this guy who you’re talking about and his band, he said that this guy has always been really nice to him, and he even had the chance to go on tour with them, so I’m sure that was very exciting for him. 😄
  13. It’s been sooooooooooooo quiet in this thread. I hope everyone is doing ok! I’ve been pretty good. Three weeks ago, I had the pleasure of seeing my latest CO in concert. He’s only been my CO for about 5 months, so it’s all still new and exciting. 😄 He’s in a band that isn’t very famous, so it was a small and intimate show, and I also got to speak to him afterwards without handlers hovering around waiting to usher me away after a few seconds. lol I still didn’t speak to him for very long since there was a (small) group of fans behind me waiting to speak to him too. But it was still a cool experience and I’ve had some post-concert depression since the show. I was tempted to fly across the country to see them one more time on this tour because I really don’t know how long it’ll be before they do a show near me again. It kind of sucks to go back to living your boring life after you’ve experienced the high of a great concert that you had really been looking forward to. Now I don’t really have anything that I’m excited about at the moment. At least not until the next tour. I was lucky enough to see three of my favorite bands in concert over the past 6 months, so I really shouldn’t complain. It’s been a good year for me CO-wise.
  14. I understand that the girlfriend might put a damper on things a bit, but you’re definitely still allowed to have the fantasy. It’s great that you met him again and got a hug! 😄
  15. Do I have thoughts about my celebrity obsessions being with other people? Well, I know that they ARE with other people. I have fleeting moments of jealousy, but for the most part, I don't let the fact that they're with other people ruin my fun. I know that even if they weren't with those other people, they still wouldn't be with me. Sad, but true. I think I'm mostly just jealous when I first find out, but then I get over it. I've started to think that my main CO and his wife are kind of cute together and I hated her two years ago. lol
