Maladaptive Daydreaming: where wild minds come to rest
yeah It kinda happend unintentionally. I just kinda scrapped my old daydream and thought of my characters in the future, so techinally my original characters were in their 40s and I would mostly focus on their kids, who were 13 (thats how old i was at the time)
but eventually the old daydream just kinda disappeared and i made the new one the present and they are all my age lol.
if that makes sense.
but i never dayadream in order...one minute i could daydreaming about them when theyre 16 and 20 minutes later im daydreaming about them when theyre 43
I'm 23, my idealized version of myself is 30. She has always been older than me, but her age is consistent with how long I have been DD. Most of my characters are 30s, 40s, and parent figures that are 60+.
I'm 25 and the age of idealized self varies wildly. It really depends on the specific DD, but I'm usually between the ages of 15-33. I know that is quite an age gap, however, I have several differing story lines that I jump between depending on my mood. When I DD younger, it usually involves adoption of some sort (basically, I get adopted by characters from BBC Sherlock). As my older idealized self, I usually DD meeting and falling in love with a certain actor. It really just depends on my mood and my specific needs for that day/situation.
My main character is from another planet, but she likes to visit Earth often. On Earth, her age is the same as mine (21), but on her home planet, she is 100 years older (121).
I feel as though that makes me seem weird....
Some of my characters are my age, while others are not.
Most of them have grown up alongside me. While some are new additions and haven't.
Same age or around my age.
he is 24, I'm 17!!
My characters are actually adults, most of them in their 30s (some are a couple hundred years old oops). They do have kids, that are about 14.
