    Hi.

    I don't really know where to start with this but I feel I have an unhealthy obsession and I'd really appreciate any advice/experience you have.

    It sounds quite silly when I think/write about it but it's famous people. I'll go through phases where I can't stop thinking about them and it's not love because I don't know any of the people for whom this happens.

    But if I see a picture, for example, of my current obsession then I get an intense sense of longing because of how beautiful they are and just a general, warm feeling but also one of sadness. It feels more than just appreciating someone's looks though.

    Help?

    You don't need to know someone in person to love them.

    I think you're just appreciating qualities in them that you want to have also. Perhaps you'd also like someone like them to have as a friend/partner.

    Please clarify your situation more if you can

    Thanks for your reply and I'm sorry I didn't respond sooner.

    I don't know whether I agree or disagree with you saying you don't need to know someone to love them - it seems as though it could work both ways. Either you don't know someone and you love them because of the way they look and the things they do (if that makes sense), but also you love them because you know them?

    Anyway I'm not too sure what else I can say. I was hoping there may be other people who have experience of this.

    I think you're right about me wishing I had those qualities/I had a partner/friend with those.

    They don't call them crushes for nothing!
