Ever become obesessed with a person (non-creepy/stalking way)

I have a friend (yes, of the opposite sex, but we are both in a relationship) I really admire and like talking with, but even though I want to talk to them more and hang out more, they are very busy with a demanding job and significant other (or maybe she plain doesn't like me) and don't really make the effort. That's cool...I'm never going to force friendship on anyone who doesn't want to reciprocate or make the effort.

But, the thing is, even though I don't want to think about them and move on, I have dreams (nonsexual) about them. Like long-involving dreams that make me exhausted when I wake up. What's up with that? I want to move on and now I have to suffer in dreams? What's a guy to do?

And, I typically have pretty weird dreams with friends. One time I dreamt about a platonic female friend. We were sleeping in the same bed together and I lifted the sheets for some reason and saw that she had a penis.

I completely disagree with the paranthetical in the thread title.

But I don't bother them. I guess it's the other way around, in that THEY invade my dreams.

Yep, the parenthetical and non-parenthetical elements in the thread title seem pretty mutually exclusive to me.

As for the subject, I've been the target of it and it's creepy. Always creepy.

No, no they don't. Never tell your friend you feel this way. You should probably avoid them all together.

Yes, that's probably good advice. They always take different forms in my dreams and is a lot of times based on stuff I watch on TV.

I was obsessed with Mrs. Nesbit until I found out she was a dude.

Non-creepiness has just left the thread!

I dreamed about you last night. I dreamed that you unzipped your face, and peeled it back like a hood. Underneath, you had the same face, only there was silver spray paint all around your mouth.

Does that mean anything?

Yeah, I have weird dreams, but who among us has normal dreams?

I think six restraining orders in four states makes me the perfect person to comment on this subject.

Re: Ever become obesessed with a person (non-creepy/stalking way)

Is this a non-creepy and non-stalking way, or a non-creepy but possibly stalking way?

Re: Ever become obesessed with a person (non-creepy/stalking way)

I wish some chick would become obsessed with me... even in a creepy/stalking way. I could use the ego boost.

I get a lot of calls from telemarketers... do they count?

Seriously. I dream of the day I meet some chick who cuts herself up while thinking about me, watching me from 50ft away.

Ladies, I'm waiting.
