Is there a doctor in the house? Cure for love sickness needed...

  1. ilmdamaily profile image63
    ilmdamailyposted 7 years ago

    Ugh...

    I've contracted a totally epic case of love sickness.

    Symptoms include loss of appetite, a dramatically shortened attention spa..hey look - a bird!, and increasing difficulty pronouncing any words with consonants in them - which is all of them. 

    Normally, I can handle it - but this is a severe case.

    Nothing to do with a broken heart or anything like that - the butterflies of attraction have just escaped their cage (againnn) and need to be gently herded back in there, lest I become ungentlemanly or buffoon-ish.   

    Anyone got a net I can borrow?

    Home remedies? Comfort foods? Mental techniques? Jiu jitsu holds?

    Anything, please...before I start playing Bryan Adams songs. Oh god, the thought of that just made me a tiny bit sick.

    What's happened to me?

      Contact the person who infected you, and make sure you rub affected areas twice daily for relief.

        Aww, thanks:-) Yes, this one's a slow burner - been holding on to it for over a year now. Distance - and if i'm honest age - conspire to keep the two of us separate, for now at least. Though I suspect she harbours similar feelings, it's just a case of finding a way to tread water until the time is right:-)

      Do something fun that will take your mind off of her. Also you can write your feelings down then burn it. It takes time to heal. Realize that and read self help books or go out and have fun to take your mind off of her.

      Remember: Time heals all wounds.

      Ok, the only cure for you is to let her know how you feel! Because either way, you will have an answer. If its that she feels the same way, or is willing to spend time with you to find out, then yes! score!
      If its a no, you will have closure!

      And by the way...us girls arent that hard to approach, and most offers flatter the yay! right out of us!

    I'm afraid there is no cure for what you've got. Unfortunately most of your symptoms will fade over time.

    Enjoy the butterflies while they last.

      ilmdamailyposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      We're each alternately available then unavailable...age and distance are big boundaries at the moment, though only for the time being. Spoke to her again recently, and just lost all control again lol - just looking for a way to ride the whirlwind...

      ...but you're right - why look for a cure when the sickness is just so nice:-)

          ilmdamailyposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          Good thinking!

          She's old enough for it to be legal, young enough for it to be a scandal. Or maybe it's my age that's the scandal...either way there's like 10 years between us.

            Age difference is no real issue - I am over 60 and when we marry next year my wife will be 25 turning 26.  It is all about whether you can give her the things she needs like security, stability and love, - nothing else.

              the pink umbrellaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

              oh, well than you can always lie to her parents about your age. who cares? Plenty of couples fib about their partner to their parents...i mean, i dont, but i would if it was something stupid getting in the way of love.

                alternate poetposted 7 years agoin reply to this

                It is not necessary to lie to her parents about anything - i can give her everything she needs and wants plus security and many other things not so easy gained from a younger guy.  Is the point about age difference in marriage.

            Disturbiaposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            LOL, I love it.... the age difference and the scandal part I mean.  My 1st husband was 40+ years older than myself and bisexual, needless to say, we made quite the scandal and enjoyed every bit of it.  Why do you want a cure anyway?  Epic love sickness is awesome and it fades all too quickly...  Who knows, some day you may wake up to find all the passion sucked from your life, wishing once again for this feeling of exhilaration.

        ahhhh....I see. well...good luck I guess. I was in love with a guy in highschool. I thought he had feelings for me too, but he wouldn't say or do anything, becuase I was older than him. (a year and a half) Anywyay, after gradutaing he joined the army.  Three and a half years later he came back. For the first time we were both single at the same time...and this October we will have our 11th wedding anniversary.

    This too shall pass.....there are people that come and go in your life.  Those that don't make it to the future are not meant to.  Learn from what they taught you and apply it to future situations.  For now, look forward to TWO WEEKS from now.  Why?  Cuz, this'll be behind you for the most part. I promise.  Stimp's gotta alot of hurt in life to last anyone a life time....but Stimp keeps goin....Don't give up.
