  1. A personal gift from your CO? That's awesome! I can understand not wanting to say too much about it though. Meeting my CO was pretty much a blur like I expected it to be. That's why I'll need to do it multiple times! lol There were probably less than 20 people ahead of me in the meet and greet line, so I got up to him pretty fast. I hadn't really planned out much to say. I was just like, "Hi CO! It's so nice to meet you!" And I think he said, "Hi, how are you?" and then he said something about my phone case matching his shoes. lol So after we took the picture, I do think I was coherent enough to look at him and say thank you instead of just walking away. But what was really nice is that I also had front row for the concert, so even though the meet and greet was short, I was still able to just stare at him for a few hours up close so that was great! Our picture together turned out nice too, so I was not disappointed.
  2. Yes, it definitely happens to me with celebrities and there's already a thread about it: https://www.depressionforums.org/forums/topic/150729-celebrity-obsession-help-or-support-2/
  3. This thread has been so quiet. Did everyone get over their obsessions? I did not. lol But I've been doing fine. I was recently able to meet my main CO for the first time (but hopefully not the last), so I'm happy! I hope everyone else is doing ok too. 🙂
  4. Don't worry, I'm sure that person has already forgotten about it and is not going to stalk you on YouTube. I think Rami is cute too, by the way! I have a little crush on him, but it's not at obsession level. 🙂
  5. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a big deal, but you can delete your YouTube comments. I’ve changed my username too without having to start a new account.
  6. I don’t have a CO who I’m really super obsessed with right now and I’m kind of sad about it. I had a new one who I was really into this time last year. 😞 Maybe in 2019...
  7. Hey, I’m still around! I’m just not currently having any CO issues so I haven’t had anything to post. I’m not sure why you need to hate Josh to get over him? Hate is a strong word. I was very into an Instagram model for a few months. Not even a famous Instagram model, but just kind of a regular guy who models sometimes. I never really tried to get over him, but one day I just completely lost interest in him and didn’t understand why I was so obsessed with him in the first place. A friend of mine did tell me that he wasn’t that cute (LOL) when I initially started obsessing over him, but I just couldn’t see it for myself then. But now I feel like an idiot for how obsessed I was and the things I did to get him to notice me (like sending him a birthday gift). I was successful in getting him to notice me, but now I don’t even care and I even unfollowed him on Instagram. None of this is his fault, by the way. A switch just flipped in my brain and I was no longer interested in him just like that. Hopefully that will happen for you too instead of you ending up hating him. It takes mental energy to hate someone, so I don’t think that would be helpful.
  8. Oh don’t worry, I’m already over the 22 year old (although I’m still a fan). My current main obsession is in his 40s, so this one teenage boy didn’t send me down a path of obsessing over more teenagers.
  9. @BlueStarr, thanks for your input. I’m not surprised that you’re responding the way you are because I’m sure all of this sounds weird to other people. But I know what my intentions are and I know that I’m not sexually motivated in general, so it’s not about that for me. Nor would I try to read between the lines and assume that @Myshka meant anything other than what she’s told us.
  10. It’s not wrong to be a fan or find him attractive (despite what people on the Internet will tell you). You and I definitely aren’t the only ones who think that he is. I do understand your concern because I was worried about whether something was wrong with me too at first, but I know that I have no ill intentions toward him or anyone else. I’m not sure how long this has been going on for you, but the intensity of my feelings for him did mellow out after a few months after another celebrity (who happens to be 22) caught my interest. So I was a bit relieved that I had found someone else who I could publicly fangirl over and not be shamed for it. Not that there was anything wrong with me being a fan of the guy you’re talking about (and I still am a fan), but there are definitely people who just won’t get it and will try to make you feel bad about it.
  11. Welcome! I’m very glad you posted this. I’m in my 30s too (older than you) and I know exactly who you’re talking about because I have similar feelings about him, and it was very weird for me too considering the age difference. I do follow him on social media and I’ve seen how vicious his fans can be. His band hasn’t come to my city yet, but I also wondered if it would be too weird for me to go see him. You are not alone! 🙂
  12. I’m sorry to hear that you let this person bring you down. It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks about your CO. If it makes you happy to post pics of him with “sexy” tags, keep doing that! I’m definitely not the most confident person, but I’m very confident when it comes to my taste in COs. They appeal to ME so it doesn’t matter if other people don’t see it. My opinion is the only one that matters! 🙂
  13. I hope everyone is doing ok! I know it’s been kind of quiet around here lately. I’ve been fine. I had a somewhat strange interaction with a former CO this week via social media. Without going into too much detail, he made an extra special effort to acknowledge me and instead of being excited about it (like I would’ve been a few months ago), I really didn’t feel much of anything. I can’t believe how fickle I am sometimes. It’s just that he’s not really on my mind much nowadays. I want to continue writing a story that I started working on two years ago that was inspired by a different CO, so in order to do that, I have to go back to the mindset I had back then and immerse myself in all things related to that particular CO (even though I technically got over him too, but I still like the story that I came up with). A lot of it is centered around music, so I’ve just been listening to the music that I was listening to around the time that I developed the story idea to help me get back to where I need to be mentally. I have so many unfinished stories that I started and never completed because once my interest level in a CO drops (even just a bit), I can’t write the story anymore because I no longer have the inspiration for it. So that’s annoying because I have lots of story ideas that I liked and just had to abandon them. But I still feel like I have some inspiration left to continue this particular story...or at least that’s how I feel this week! 😄
  14. Hey there, sorry you’ve been feeling down. I’m sure I would feel the same way although I do like weddings, but I haven’t been invited to any this year. I am planning to buy a wedding gift for a coworker who I like even though I wasn’t invited to her wedding (and I’m fine with that). I was feeling a bit depressed earlier this month due to my birthday, and I had also been communicating with a guy who I was really enjoying getting to know, but things didn’t work out. 😞 However, since I was focusing the majority of my mental energy on him (I can only really direct it on one person at a time), I ended up losing interest in my CO. But now a former CO has taken his place. lol I also joined a Meetup group just to make new friends and socialize more because I think that would be good for me. The first Meetup event was today and it turned out pretty well, so I’m going to one next weekend also. I’m sure it can’t hurt for me to get out of the house more often!
