I still have a mad crush on Tobias from Animorphs, and I haven't read those books since the 5th grade.
“Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
haha, I should have mentioned earlier, I get crushes on book characters too, and get downright jealous a tiny tiny bit when they hook up with assholes... I get way to emotionally attached to the characters in the books I read...
You are not powerless, you just need to accept your power for what it is, a part of the whole, no one man can save the world, but you can be a light to those who envelope themselves in darkness, The candle that sparks the inferno.
I totally relate to what you are saying. I think that infatuation is very similar to a drug addiction. We crave the "high." I only try to control it because I believe my husband deserves my undivided affection and also ( I admit) because I am not fond of making a fool out of myself.
