In love with love

After sleeping on it, I've come to realize that I was not actually in love with dream boy. I was in love with the idea of being in love with dream boy. Any relationship we might have had would have paled in comparison with my imagined (i.e. idealized and romanticized) relationship. That wouldn't have been fair to him and it wouldn't have been fair to me.

I still think he's incredibly sexy and if he actually wanted to pursue a relationship later on and lived in my timezone I'd definitely take him up on a date or two. Until that time, I'm perfectly content to be friends with him.

Some of you are probably thinking I'm schizophrenic and/or multiple personality given the short period of time in which I've gone from head over heels to logical and spock-like. But any of you who've ever gone to therapy should recognize that just the act of verbalizing something you've been thinking about relaxes it's grip on you. That crush had a grip like a mo' fo'. But now it's out there and gone. Alleluiah! Can I get an amen!?

Stamp: $.37
Ben & Jerry's: $3.99
Figuring out that I don't want what I thought I wanted: Priceless!

What the heck did we do before we had these credit card commercials?

You go girl! In case you were worried; you are normal. Just thought I would let you know that EVERYTHING you are going through is like, soooooo normal.
