    This has become a rare but reoccuring problem for me. Whenever I meet someone and I find them attractive I instantly become REALLY attached to them, although this happens rarely when it does it takes over my thoughts. I met a guy at the club and he was very interested, messaged me later but the conversation ended after two messages. The problem is all I can think about is him and why the conversation didnt lead to something else and if theres anythign wrong with me etc. How do I get over this?

    Hey...atleast you feel attached to people. There are people like me who WANT to feel attracted to someone but is difficult af unless we spend tons of time with them (in my case doe). Anyway, it's not a good thing but not necessarily a bad thing either. Don't fret over something that comes NATURALLY to you. Can't do much about it if it's a part of your character.

    No I hardly ever feel attached to anyone, I usually block people out. When it happened this week I didnt even recognise myself, I'm obsessed with this guy which is a very new feeling to me but also a dangerous one. I'm trying to find ways to block him out.

    This is a common feeling for people who haven't had much relationship experience, it is likely to improve as you get older. I think the best thing to do is to keep meeting new people to distract yourself from your current crush. I was like you, then I learned to control my feelings and I pretty much lost feelings as quickly as I got them.

    All I can say is remember all the pain it causes. I got so attached to this girl I liked (she was my first crush) and a few weeks ago she rejected me (I'm still hurt now)

    This is true, I'v never been in a relaionship due to me blocking people out. Yeah I have plenty of opportunity for that, just need to let loose. Thank you.

    find out where the emotional attachment comes from. usually it stems from not feeling loved enough by certain family members or friends or self-esteem issues. you cling on because you're desperate to be loved and wanted by this man or maybe any person who'll have you. not saying this to be rude, I've been there myself. You need to work on your relationship with yourself, learn to love and appreciate yourself until you get to the point in which you accept that you'd like to have someone in your life but you certainly don't NEED someone in your life.

    Sleep with a lot of people. That's how I did it. You get to realising we're all pretty much the same weird hairless naked people at the end of the day. Nobody is special enough to agonise over. It also helped me to realise that sex can lead to nothing and that can be my choice rather than his.
