    not really, I mean yes to the point of it destroys the other person's life. I've seen it happen, she lives her life around someone she never met, kept saying he'd make it better and that's why she listened to him so much that if he took her away her life would magically get better. Or if she could meet him same thing. She even planned to move to London (where he lives) in hopes of meeting him after she graduated. She tried to kill herself. When she's drunk she talk to him like he's in the room.


    I enjoy "magical thinking" but at the end of the day I realize it's "magical thinking" and go on with my life.

    Okay, how about something like this:

    The chances of a celebrity living up to his or her fanatic's expectations are slim to none. Disillusionment is certain.

    The celebrity is not only worshiped, but idealized in the eyes of the fan. The fan has no chance of meeting this person because the idealized celebrity is a fiction that exists only in the hopes and fantasies of the fan. Ultimately, the celebrity, like the fan, is plagued with character flaws and real-life problems and is therefore bound to disappoint the adoring fan who confuses fantasy and reality.

    another question: does statutory rape have an upper limit on age range? like would a relationship between two consenting individuals of fifty years apart still be statutory rape?

    I think one partner needs to be under 18, while the other one is over. In some cases, I think there are exceptions when the older partner is less than 2 years older than the younger, but don't quote me on that.

    Why would meeting an actor on a TV show be more improbable than meeting one particular celebrity?

    Unless you mean meeting a person who embodies the characteristics of that TV character, in which case:

    "No person can embody every characteristic of a fictional character. Fictional characters are by design narrowly-drawn and idealized. Meeting anyone with an equal lack of depth is far more unlikely than even running into Brad Pitt on the street and starting a romantic relationship; though highly improbable, marrying Brad Pitt is theoretically conceivable. However, individuals who idealize and sexualize fictional television characters inevitably set themselves up for disappointment because fantasy will never wholly reflect reality."


    I think that's what you're trying to say... :/


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    There are, but those laws are designed to cover situations where (usually) two minors get it on. We have icky feelings about prosecuting a 17-year-old guy who has a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old girl, or vice versa - and rightly so.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    You need to use the word "favorite" it doesn't make enough sense otherwise.

    I think it's "less". You could clarify by saying "less than the chance of someone meeting their favorite celebrity..."
