Today I watched a cute romantic comedy about two unlikely people who end up falling in love and I stalked my behaviour. I feel like I got high off of watching this movie. Not crazy high, but high. This definitely fits with Susan's post earlier about love addiction and the brain.
However-I enjoy watching these movies as they give me hope that someday I can perhaps have a similar experience with someone. But I now know that this is unhealthy as evidenced by my goofy smile and warm feeling in my body after watching this movie. The same way I feel when I'm in a new relationship. I'm just an addict getting high. How do I stop this? Today I watched the film as a test. To see if I'd have the same reaction as I've been avoiding movies like this for many months now.

I'm the same way. I like to watch Jane austen movies, movies that remind me of past relationships or movies I had enjoyed watching with an ex. It feels real nice but I feel kind of sad sometimes after because the movie is over. On my days away from work I like to have wine and watch my favorite sappy movies. I either end up crying myself to sleep from feeling hopeless or numb.
