    Well, I had the great fortune that I could marry the man of my affection! So thankfully, these times are behind me. Still, it is an interesting romantic notion that catalyzes my Ne fantasy.

    Yeah, I experience this all the time. Every time I date someone, I experience this until I meet them, or until 2-3 months or more.

    The fact I've never felt this is one of the many reasons why I don't feel like an adequate, functioning human.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,
    To have to watch this show.

    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I've felt something like this towards certain ideas, paradigms, and ways of seeing things. At one point, I think I actually felt something like this towards MBTI and Jungian theory. Other times I can feel it towards a particular style of story, a particular theme, quality, or archetype.

    As far as people, though? I don't think so, although the feeling might just not have lasted long enough before I ended up focused on something more abstract and expansive than the person themselves.

    Yeah, I really didn't know people werent like this. Although I did look at the "new relationship" thing and it says it is similar to limerance with a different end result?

    "Another related term is limerence, as described by Dorothy Tennov in her book Love and Limerence[6]. While New Relationship Energy is described in published accounts as mostly positive and enjoyable feelings which people are reluctant to see fade, limerence is described by Tennov in her book as a generally unpleasant oscillation of misery and intoxication whose sufferers wish to be rid of. New Relationship Energy is often functional in establishing intimacy and emotional bonds, while limerence is seen as dysfunctional and without value. "

    Wow, I didn't think it had a whole definition..I feel this way alll of the time, no lie. It's pretty constant for me, but it regulates in intensity..
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    I find it a pain. And wonderful. But pain, nevertheless.
    It once went so bad, I saw her face in every little place I laid my eyes upon. It was as if she was the book I was reading. I'm so glad I am almost out of that one. Still makes intrusions in my thoughts though. Every now and then. And always despair and "what if I ..." or "maybe if I..." or "perhaps if I...".
    Damn blue every time. Deadly blue. Or Deadly happy. I can't decide.

    It's like being out in the sun all for too long. You burn yourself over and over and over and over. But in your mind and it is your mind that reaches out to the body and creates wonderful/horrible sensations.

    Well, in scandinavia I am kind of used to hearing about limerance, or förälskelse as I know it.

    It's pure life energy. xD

    What if one find a person so abstract and expansive that they doesn't seem to stop any where. Where the hell does one go? Are there pills against this? xD

    No pills!!! Don't numb the human condition - our ability to feel is what makes living worth while.

    And besides, without feeling, how can one be creative?
