    It's more like I get these...obsessions. Often involving someone completely unobtainable (eg, historical figure, film/novel character, imaginary person), usually for some ultra-attractive (imo) quality of character or their "presence". Usually in my preferred gender of sexual choice. And then I have to research, investigate, dream about, BECOME that person. Until it burns itself out and/or I find something new to obsess over. I say something, because it's not always a person. For example, one time I obsessed over the concept of Japanese Geisha for months. One other time, it was...vitamins (?). It's more marked by its obsessive quality and need for merging than it is by sexual attraction.

    And it changes every few days to every few months. Whenever the next flame comes to my attention. I literally mark my life by who/what I was obsessing over at the time. Depression can drown it, though.

    Crushes on real humans? No. They don't even come close. Mundane ordinary humans with all their non-awesome qualities. Those are people with whom I can "work on a relationship". But I find it almost disgraceful to sell my soul to another human being like that. Obsessing over some guy. Falling all over myself. Because "this time it's special". GROSS. Fools. I won't have it. I've been attracted to people before, but never once had the need to obsess.

    Other humans simply aren't the higher quality thing I wish to complete me. I'm starting to come to terms with that now when look at my unhappy relationship history.
    I have experienced this periodically since I was a child.

    Very often, if I'm in a relationship it doesn't happen that much because my biggest crush is whoever I'm with at the moment, but otherwise I have romantic fantasies with a lot of different people, pretty detailed and progressive too, from the beginning of the relationship, fights and happy endings all included, I find that pretty weird about myself.

    I obsess over a person, a thing, a character for a sporadic amount of time and then move on but it must always be something or I feel a sense of isolation/unease.

    Once a year... but it doesn’t last long. Like 1-2 months.

    But this year....it has been five months.

    nearly never... generally things go from "you seem interesting" to "i guess we are probably together now" without me being sure how i feel about someone... getting emotionally wrapped up in someone you aren't with feels like a waste of energy... i guess sometimes feelings happen without permission though (i hear that's a thing)...

    Then we will persevere
    I find I can get behind radical ideas and make them real

    I cannot tell you how to feel"

    um, one after another all throughout my teen years, up into 'emerging adulthood' (until about age 20-21). I went through a bout of depression after that, and I lost interest in a lot of things, and isolated myself quite a bit, for a few years. Now it's not quite as often.
