    Hey there! I have so many favorite bands that I’m not even sure who you’re talking about at this point, so no harm done. 😄 You can just shoot me a message if you would like to get more specific about your CO and which band he may have worked with. I don’t think you’ve missed much since this thread has been pretty quiet. I have CO-related topics to discuss, but don’t want to feel like I’m talking to myself with all the crickets chirping around here. 😂

    Hey!
    Sorry I've been MIA. I guess things have been ok?? Feel I wanted to update with something, but now all I can think about is how I think one of my COs, may have collaborated with @HopelessRomantic2011  favorite bands?? I hope it's ok to say this much. I'm not specifying names, but wanted to post here to signal I plan to check in when I remember my thoughts. Haha! *facepalms And I don't have a lot of time either.
     
    Actually, I am recalling how I've met some fellow enthusiasts of my COs, some of who seem worse off than me, but it makes me check myself, because I do still feel more than the average/casual fan, ya know? 
    But more later, and I have been keeping up with this thread, but for the life of me, my attention span has gone kaput lol

    It has been prob 3 years since I last posted on here.  So much has changed that I wish I could delete my old posts from years ago and start fresh.  My CO is with a model,  half his age (barely out of her 20’s) and has not a flaw on her body (most of her social media photos are highly revealing). 
    The issue it not them, it’s me. I want to look like her.  I am aging, getting fatter (2020 did not help there). I’m not in my 20’s anymore with a flat stomach and model looks and seeing him with her is making me realize this.  I have always struggled with my appearance and he triggers this hang up something horrible. For those not aware, my CO actually knows me and has in some ways flirted and gave me attention since day one. I wish I could just look at him like he’s just another famous person so none of this would bother me but you all know how that is. It does not matter how old we are, if we are married or in relationships-we are all here because we are dealing with this form of anxiety.  I don’t want to see a therapist about this because I don’t know how to bring this up without him/her thinking I’m crazy.

    Hi all,
    I've been reading through this topic and it's so comforting to know that other people have this same problem. It feels so embarrassing and weird when I think about it myself - it makes me feel like there's something wrong with me. But I'm starting to realize that this is actually a common issue.

    The season is already in progress, but you can always catch reruns! I’m trying to narrow down the locations for the fantasy suite dates right now. I think it’s going to be Montana, Las Vegas, and Hawaii. 😂

    But glad you can relate. I don’t plan to eliminate any of my COs. I like having multiples! But for some reason, my mind still wants to always be able to definitively say which one of them is (currently) in the #1 spot. I don’t know why. I’m just weird! But I can understand wanting to choose just one if you have multiples in the same band. That’s happened to me before quite a few times and they were also brothers. 😄

    Oh, this is heartbreaking!! I hope you'll be alright! You will surely be missed, dear! So sorry you went through all of that too. I hope I didn't trigger anything. Yes, I'm struggling, but I'm still hanging on...and it comes and goes. It's a little less painful now, but I also fear I'm not being the wisest with how im dealing with things. 😕
     
    @Smophie it's not really so much an issue of can't have kids (I mean, as far as I know), it's more that I shouldn't. It's complicated. I don't want to go into it either. 
     
    I know I said I'd update, but now isn't the best time either. Plus I don't even know what to say...oh wait! But things changed. Last night, Tom was on a tweeting spree to promote his show. He hasn't really acknowledged fans in some time, but my hope is still there, so I'd comment (I was not the only one, I promise), and he even did acknowledge one person, a person I happen to follow too, last night. That's damn exciting!! All in all, a good night, but I fear that person got recognition for 2 reasons, 1 I prefer not to do, and 2 I absolutely will not do...so that's kinda discouraging. But...i mean, I still had fun and maybe he still sees the comments... i just hope he is or can be proud of me. Like I really don't want to be a disappointment, particularly if it gets me blocked. (Eek!) So...i mean, am I super dumb and crazy??! Well, yeah probably...but I don't want to stop!!! 😞 I really try to say clever and/or nice things, but still, who really knows how text is perceived?? I dunno! 
    But besides all of that, I probably did myself a disservice by following some fellow fans...While they certainly can relate to my crush, they can and do sometimes feed the obsession and tempt me to behave in similar disgusting fashion. I mean, I haven't exactly done that, but I'm not always in the best of control, especially when it comes to the subject of Tom, who just makes me want to lose control completely! Oh God, help me! 
     
    Oh, and hi hi @HopelessRomantic2011 ! Nice to see you again! Glad you're doing well (I think and hope)! 🙂 Good luck choosing your "bachelor"! Haha 😉

    When does the season start? 😂 
    also seriously don’t worry, you’re not alone in this, even though my main CO is this guy let’s called him dan from a German educational series, I’m also regaining a love for 3 or so members from this Latin boy band I’m avidly into. 
     
    don’t know if you’ve ever felt this, I’m sure you can relate that it feels like a crossroads deciding which to eliminate and choose.

    So you had a dream about a former CO which has now renewed your interest in him a bit? Or you’re just questioning why you had the emotional reaction that you felt in the dream? It’s easy to get caught up in a dream because it feels so real when it’s happening. You could have a dream that you’re in a romantic situation with someone who you never even thought about in that way, but the dream might lead you to see the person in a new light.
    But yes, it’s been way too quiet here so hopefully that means that everyone is healthy and as happy as can be under the current circumstances. I’ve been well. I’ve had the opportunity to communicate with other fans of my current CO and they seem equally obsessed if not more obsessed with him, so I definitely don’t feel alone. Of course most of them are a lot younger than me, so I’m more understanding of their fangirl behavior than my own. But it is what it is and I have to have SOME kind of entertainment during this pandemic situation! 😄

    It’s perfectly ok to gush sometimes! Sadly my CO doesn’t really post anything on social media, so I’ve mostly just been fangirling over his pics on Tumblr. I feel like he’s the cutest thing ever and the greatest thing since sliced bread even though I know I’ve said the same exact thing about my past COs. Oh well... I meant it when I said it! 😂

    Okay a fun post I wanna put out there- Time to gush and silently scream! AAAALKDJ;ljlsdkjf;lakjf;lasklkAKDLKJLKFJL!!!!! ❤️❤️ 
     I was JUST browsing Instagram. My new celeb crush has been very quiet lately, and his posts haven't been that interesting or frequent.
    But today, he posted a 'throwback' video of himself hip-hop dancing on a music and dance TV program sometime in the 90's. He must have been late teens or 20 then. It was a pretty popular show I remember watching and he was one of those backup hip-hop dancers performing while a pop singer was singing. (I won't give away who that pop singer was) So that's something ELSE I just learned of his life in showbiz! God, he was adorable! Dripping with cute! I happen to love hip-hop dance and my daughter's pretty good at it, lol.
    You better believe I tapped that 'like' heart on my phone. MY GOD! ❤️ )

    Glad to see a few new posts here. I hope everyone is doing well (or at least as well as you can be considering all that’s going on). I still have a CO who I’m very much obsessed with, and I’m ok with that. If not for him, I wouldn’t have very many happy thoughts to focus on these days. Since my CO is a musician, of course I long for all of this to be over even more so that touring can start again and I can go see him. Stay safe everyone and try to check in from time to time to let us know how you’re doing. 🙂

    Hello out there-
    I'm glad I found and read through this topic on a forum. I have what could be called a 'celebrity obsession,' although I don't think I'm obsessed with him yet, and he's not a very famous celebrity.
    He's a little-known actor who I happened to find and follow on Instagram months ago, just because he did voiceover commercials. About a year ago, I was constantly hearing this ad on the radio. Normally, I HATE radio ads! I want to hear music. And-- (This is crazy!!) I started to fall in love with the guy's voice. Don't ask, LOL, I don't understand how I managed to fall in love with a random man's voice.
    That led to me Googling the commercial information, and I found a few video commercials with the actor playing the same 'role' as the radio ads, same voice! He's definitely a nice-looking guy, close to my age when I assumed he was much younger. He looks younger than he is, I guess! I learned his name right away, and I found his Instagram account. I followed him, since I follow about 300 random people I don't personally know, usually authors, photographers, and minor actors. It's fun to follow these artistic and talented people. I'm a wife and mom with a dull career, married for almost 16 years. I have dabbled in photography, theater, and writing myself, so I follow these people's social media. I often feel jealous I can't make a living doing what they do. But that's a whole other story.
    After some more snooping and searching about this commercial actor- I know you can relate- I learned that he once acted as a child in a movie, made about 30 years ago. It was one of those wholesome, musical family-friendly films. He was just one young boy in a group of singing and performing kids, and he was never that famous. I found his IMDB page, and then I learned he did TV acting about 20 years ago, having a bit part in a well-known kids' show. It was a kids' show that my own daughter watched in reruns a few times. 
    Once I found out he was a minor celebrity, I started paying more attention to his Instagram posts and started to fall into this completely immature crush on the guy! He's so down to earth and relatable. He's a Star Wars fan like me. He documents his life just like an average, ordinary Joe. He posts things about doing voiceovers, once he posted a clip of himself in that popular TV show, but he also posts cute videos about his handy do-it-yourself home projects. Two separate times I commented on his IG posts, just something polite and complimentary, and each time he liked my comments! I was on Cloud Nine each time! 
    The reason I mentioned this is that while reading this whole thread, I saw that a lot of you are able to reach out and contact your "CO" on social media. You feel such a high, so ecstatic when they respond back to you. I felt this way from his liking my comments. For now, I don't know if this actor has a wife or not. I'm married. I know I should only be into my husband, who I've known 20 years. Celebrity crushes are supposed to be for teenagers screaming for Justin Beiber or the members of One Direction or whatever, LOL. Yet I'm struggling with this silly crush on this minor celebrity, even fantasizing that I'd lived in L.A. and could have met him. I'm not so much in love, but I'm infatuated. ❤️ 
    Now I'm trying to avoid going down the rabbit hole of searching for everything about him! It's not a very good emotional state to be in. I hope to find someone to talk to about this. Thanks.

    Folks! I'm really obsessed right now with this newest musician. He's just so adorable, I love him in every way! I don't even know him, I know! And I know I gotta get a grip. But it literally pains me to see him with someone...even though I suppose he deserves to be happy. I kinda wish I went my whole life without seeing what he looked like. Just a voice in my songs. I ...i dunno. But this one hurts and I think it's just he's so beautiful (like inside and out) that it hurts. I don't really want to be with him, but ...ah! I really dunno. Just that beauty that hurts. You wanna be around him kinda thing. I wanna watch live videos and all that...the weird thing is is that I'm attracted more to the past him, I think. It like takes me back to ugh, high school, except no it was college. Ah! Anyway, man I barely remember anything but hearing the song on the radio. It wouldn't be until years later that I'd see him and hear and like more songs off the album... the other funny thing is that he's kinda mysterious in that when he sings he covers his face a lot, like his mouth around the Mic, so it took awhile for me to actually get a good look and when I did, he was a little different than I expected, but in an oh so adorable way.
    Ok, sorry for posting so much. I'm just emotional. I wanna go back to 2003! Except I don't really. Just some things. Lol

    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! 😩

    Well, earlier today I was thinking how I'm kinda getting bored with my COs now, but then they came back and surprised me (well not the one not on social media, but his representative community). Anyway, first it was the private guy. Saw a picture of him posing in a picture frame. Like omg, yes! He's so perfectly frame worthy (and he looks like he knows it, but I'm not sure if he does). Anyway, then number 2, well it was also a fan post but of one of his interviews. lol it was a funny little clip! just adorable! And finally, number 3, well he actually posts and he's now giving acting lessons online...like, how cool is that?! I don't really care to participate, but some fans are gonna be really excited to get to work with him and I'm happy for them!
    So, all in all a good fangirling day! lol
    On another note, I'm soooo happy I got back on this site today! Anyone else have troubles yesterday and/or are having troubles now with this? It was so scary! I would have missed you all!

    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! 😄

    Hi, everyone.
    I'e been lurking in this thread and I'm on the verge of developing yet another big celebrity crush again. This one is more about the fictional character the actor plays, not the actor himself. I am trying to do everything I can to avoid reading about him in real life. IMDB, Wikipedia, celebrity sites, Twitter. I clicked 'follow' for him on Twitter and then decided not to. I know nothing of his personal life yet, who his wife or girlfriend is- nothing. I want to just admire and fantasize about the character he plays in a movie, and a cute 'ship' that I read fanfiction of. For now, that's the only media I will consume about this guy. I adore him as the character and from what I've seen of him in the publicity videos of the cast, he is a real sweetie. ❤️ 
    I have a recurring history of CO's. One was a TV actor from an 80's show. Like many of you, I went crazy for the younger version. Another is an old-time singer, dead since the 60's. I have a lot of obsessions about famous young people who died long ago, and he's only one of many. Hearing his songs is always bittersweet and sad. I still love both of these men, but the obsession's worn off.
    Those former crushes felt better and more comfortable because there was no big social media about them (the long dead musician of course- because he was killed in the 60's!) Now, after watching this movie 2 times, I can't get enough of him but do NOT want to know who his wife or girlfriend is. I'm even a bit envious of his female co stars because each one either kissed or hugged him onscreen! 
    Oh, and I'm also married, but the marriage has been in a dead bedroom for a few years. I love my husband but the passion is gone.

    I'm sorry LSA is bumming you out. I'm not a member there but I've read various threads over the years and usually end up laughing my ass off.
    There's actually a decent amount of threads there about various things pertaining to my CO's life, past, and current actions. Most of the posters there roast the shit out of him, but I just laugh at it instead of getting upset. I love him and the inspiring person he is today that he became by owning up to and learning from his mistakes, but I'm not wearing any blinders. He's done some stuff that certainly deserves roasting. He even roasts the crap out of his younger self sometimes on social media. LSA is just a bit of fun to me!

    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.

    Hello, long time since I came here. 
    I have to share this but I am so scared someone is gonna see my post and recognizes me.
    I met my CO a couple of weeks ago (I already met him some years ago). I spent a lot of money (in my terms) to see him. Book a flight, hotel, and so on. He knew who I am... he recognized me. I have never been so excited in my life, I literally had the feeling my heart is going to jump out my chest. We had a couple of minutes to talk. He is just the sweetest person. I love his eyes so much, I kept on staring. i love his nose and mouth also..We were standing very close, I know it sounds pathetic but I tried to find out if he has a bad breath...nothing! It seems like he is the imperfection of being perfect (even if he is not perfect, to me he is)! I got a couple of photos with him, I wish I could share them with you.. show you how happy I look, show you how adorable he is. 
    I also feel very guilty towards my husband. But I swear I can not help it. I am so much in love. I suffer since the moment I saw him the first time but I can‘t and won‘t let him go. To be clear, I love my husband but I also love my CO.. 
    Maybe someone can send me a private message? I wish I could tell all of it...

    Hey! Don't worry about it! I don't think @BlueStarr is criticizing, only clarifying. I think i have both personal issues as well as the celebrity obsessions (i say that with an s because i thought of a couple others im following.) Anyway, I appreciate your input and we will continue to chat via PM. Speaking of, if I don't get to it right away it's because I'm thinking of what to say and whether or not I should like ramble on.

    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!
