I am way too in love with fictional characters

I love fiction. A lot.
It's what gets me through the day when nothing else can. I can live through the eyes of another person, fighting monsters and falling in love, by merely flicking the pages of a book.
But I love fictional characters too much.
I develop connections and bonds with them, as I can see their innermost thoughts and feelings.
As a result of this, I find myself quite...disinterested in guys around me. While everyone else my age is dating or crushing on someone, I simply don't have any interest in guys other than the ones in my books.
I'm worried about the future, when I'll have to come to terms with the fact that I can never have my fictional characters and that I'll have to lower my expectations to reality. Or I'm even more worried that I won't ever be able to and that I'll be alone for the rest of my life.

  • I'm the same way. The good thing about it is that you'll be able to use their good qualities to find a good guy. :)
