I am, actually, *not* in love. I must keep reminding myself of this.
I can't - cannot *possibly* - be in love with someone I know this little about. Sure, I read about their life, but only so much as they choose to share with the public - I'm not a friend of theirs, and they wouldn't share their secrets with me. The times I've fallen in love online, met the person and been severely disappointed...likewise, the three (I think) times I've just *liked* someone online and then met them, I've fallen head over. ~shrug~ People are so very different online and in real life.
So I'm not in love, and it *is* just a silly phase I'm going through, and if I can remember that perhaps it will stop hurting.
