    I certainly have. It can be wonderful and give you wings. I don't really recall anything that negative about it. But it's been years since the last time.

    Yes, I can definitely relate to this. I always feel in control, I haven't had any problems with getting rid of the feelings. It does take time, though, but it's not agony, that's for sure.

    Otherwise, the long fantasy is anticipatory; it begins in the everyday world and climaxes at the attainment of the limerent goal. A limerent fantasy can also involve an unusual, often tragic, event.

    The long fantasies form bridges between the limerent's ordinary life and that intensely desired ecstatic moment. The duration and complexity of a fantasy depend on the availability of time and freedom from distractions. The bliss of the imagined moment of consummation is greater when events imagined to precede it are possible.

    In fact they often represent grave departures from the probable.
    This makes complete sense to me. I didn't know it was strange to have those kind of fantasies... I have found myself getting to a point where I can see progression in the relationship, but it's not enough to make me reassured. I think that the "daydream"-like fantasies that are grounded in reality are really a tool to feel more secure with the progression of the relationship...

    Thinking positively, if you will?

    The way the articles talk about it really sets my teeth on edge.

    What's the difference between "limerance" and "lust?"

    Do we really need a flashy new name for lust?

    I think not.

    Exactly. It sounds like a complete psycho-weirdo having a fit of lust in a really nasty sort of way.

    I don't like it.

    The extent at which it can last beyond the intial feeling and after the core of the feeling faded. This is how I saw it.

    But yes i'm very familiar with that feeling. I can't even remember the last time i wasn't... limerating
    ik sprokkel wat dagen, drop baggage,
    soms heb ik geen zin om die koffers te dragen,
    ik laat los, los het op, word onzichtbaar
    en geef de buitenlucht wat ruimte terug
    dus.. nu zit ik op m'n fiets alsof het niets is,
    maar niets kan toch niet uit zichzelf pedalen laten draaien?

    I don't think I have... for better or for worse..

    Not sure if I have. I have experienced crushes that lasted for years, but they've been less lust/ physical desire oriented and more emotional.

    That's what I thought. I was trying to figure out what the difference was. I'm guessing this is just another common, normal human condition that we've come to describe as a malady because it's irrational.
