OMG! 10 claps! I have never clapped so much on here before. This is so me and the type of relationships I have had my entire life, relationships with the idea of what I wanted and needed. And I know someone else who is doing this and I had mentioned to this person that they were in love with the idea of being in love rather than the person they want to attach it to. Your post is dead on. I’ve been working on a story in the realm of this concept and I will reference this story for sure. Thank you for your insight. I was meant to see this as confirmation.
