Dating cartoon character
Well, I typed in 'Dealing with being in love with a fictional character' into Google, and I ended up on this site.
I've been in love with the same cartoon character for nearly 7 years.
Yes, I know, lots of people get crushes on cartoon or anime characters, and it usually only lasts a year or two, and then they move into another character.
I'm not sure if I believe in soulmates, but if such a thing existed, I think this character would be my soulmate.When this cartoon was cancelled years ago, I spiralled into a horrible state of depression.I felt like he had died, and my world was falling apart.It hurt SO much, more than anyone who has never experienced it could ever imagine.The depression took about 4 years to fully heal..I had to convince myself that despite how I feel, he's a cartoon character, and cartoon characters don't die... I still watch repeats of this show all the time, just to get a high from seeing the character and hearing the sound of his voice...Alot of the time I just like to pretend he's a real person.Sometimes he feels more real to me than any of my friends...sometimes even my family.I feel like such an outcast and so is this character, perhaps that's why I feel like I can relate to him so much.I think one of the worst things about being in love with a fictional character is the fact that no one really takes your love seriously.They just kind of chuckle or roll their eyes, "Yep, you're way too obsessed!" Or they don't really take too much concern during those times I've locked myself in my room for nearly full days crying, because they know it's only over a tv show.
