And also, high-five to any of the MCRmy out there :. I am almost totally obsessed with a deceased stage actor who was old enough to be my father. He was very famous in a tv role but I didn't care then. I framed his handsome picture and watch him on youtube constantly.

I want to know would he like me? He never married. I can't decide if I like him as lover or father [I had a happy stable childhood].
Am I crazy? No, you're not crazy. I have an obsession with an actress on a tv show from the 90's. She's 4 years younger than me in real life and I've thought some of the same things you think about your actor, even though last anyone heard she's married. Like you I watch her stuff on youtube and amazon prime. Going back over 3 months ago i needed help to get back into work. I saw a personal consultant who helped and supported me back into work all seemed good and we found the ideal job for me and i successfully got the job.
This person was ultimately my saviour i did become fond of her as i kept in touch after i got the job i went to see her one day with a card and chocolates to say thank you she gave me the biggest hug. I went to see her again for a chat and catch up we are now friends on facebook as she now has a new job. I will get to the point now ive found myself become more and more attached to her the more ive contacted her but i have taken a step back because ive realized i do have an obsession or a attachment issue i can't stop thinking about her and regularly cant help but look on her facebook profile is this an obsession or just an attachment thats gone out of control??
Feed back on this would be much appreciated. I found this while trying to figure out how to make someone leave me alone. I never had a relationship with this person other than a superficial acquaintance but they somehow became obsessive and demand my undivided attention every day.
This is not the first time it has happened and I am wondering if my usual distant behavior turns an occasional polite response into an intermittent reward. This occured to me because when I put off annoying emails from older men for a few days or weeks and then send a short polite response, they always reply immediately with exuberance. Sometimes they bombard me with a socially unacceptable number of messages full of demands and expressions of affection and then express revolting concern for my well being if I do not respond immediatley.

I don't know why these people would fixate on me when there are lots of other friendlier and more appropriate women about. So I am debating if I should be uniformly unfriendly or friendly to avoid another repeat of this scenario. Neither seems practical because I can't be rude to people before their behavior turns offensive and being too friendly just isn't in my nature.
Obsession (Sky Ferreira song)
My usual cold politeness and preoccupation with my work doesn't seem to be a deterrant at all. I guess I need to harden myself off and completely ignore people as soon as their behavior offend me and stop looking like a doormat for the sake for being polite. I always attract unwanted attention from the same type of unusually obsessive and clingy older man.
They're not like guys who try to pick me up at bars but are usually friends of people I know who somehow mistake me for a best friend or soulmate type thing.
I didn't know there were so many like that out there. Is this a common situation? I think many of E's comments are spot on, the relationship I am speaking of was less than a year but I was so captivated with her that when we were together I felt an overwhelming passion being with her. As I remember I think she was a Virgin when I met her, I was kind and gentle and let it happen when it felt right for both of us. I think what triggered the chain of events for me was that it caught me off guard and and when 1 persons feelings change and the other is still the same and communications break down because I was not thinking straight, angry and making matters worse by my stupidity, then Kim was more than likely afraid of me and shut me out of any communications whatsoever.
So to make a long story short, I never felt any closure, ruined what might have been at least a friend at some point and forever made myself to be an ass in the end. I just somehow wanted to know that I know that I hurt her and that was wrong, and that for me talking about it later in life brings a closure to try to make things right, and I would never trade the time we had together for anything, I still think about it and cherish it, and let her know that I have done alot of interesting things with my life also, so things turned out the way they were supposed too.
It is very clear why Kim was alarmed by what you believe to be intimacy. It is completely innappropriate to identify someone by their full name and say that you slept with her when she was a "Virgin" with a capital V. You should ask a therapist about why you feel the need to make such intrusive personal comments. Women and men will all eventually avoid you if you keep behaving like this. I write as I think and there is no buffer, I am impulsive and it just comes out as I think it, my anxiety triggers the ugly side of mental illness, I speak before I think, in this case what I can tell you is that I honestly just felt like I was telling the story without any thought about outcome except to remember it the best I could, then figure out what and why it happened the way it did, I really did not think I was hurting anyone till I received your comments, John.

Unintended Consequences and the Cerebral Cortex. Alex Lickerman M. To do this, the following strategies may be helpful: Distract yourself at varying intervals. Using force of will to tame an obsession is like fighting to overcome anxiety by denying it exists: rarely does it do anything but make it worse. Instead, find something attractive and pleasurable to distract you from your obsession, to provide you a break from thinking about it.
This will help remind you on an emotional level that other things in life are still important. Read a gripping novel, watch an entertaining movie, help a friend in distress. Do something that takes you out of your own head. Accomplish a task that helps put your obsession behind you. Sometimes an obsession holds us in its power and refuses to let us go because we simply haven't finished with it. Perhaps we haven't revised a book chapter, haven't planned the last details of a trip, haven't asked out someone on whom we have a crush.
Tell yourself that once you've reached the next milestone, you're going to take a break. Often taking a solid step forward in some way frees you to walk away from an obsession temporarily to recharge your batteries. And when you do, turn back to something else in your life you've been neglecting.
Focus on your greater mission. As I wrote in an earlier post, The Importance Of Having A Mission , finding and embracing a mission in life will defend you against the sense your life is meaningless. And if you're able to care about a mission that in some way brings joy to or removes suffering from others, you'll find yourself more firmly anchored, upright, and balanced when a wave of obsessive thoughts threatens to carry you away. Adopt a practice that grounds you. Chant Nam-myoho-renge-kyo.
Take up karate. Or dancing.
Do something physical in different surroundings to engage a different part of your mind that's interested in other things besides your obsession. Allow time to pass. With time, many obsessions gradually lose their flavor. Listen to what others tell you.
