Where wild minds come to rest

Hello everyone,
My gosh. It must be nearly a year since I've logged onto here. I have been unbelievably busy. Sorry for my absence, I really miss it here! I am Jennifer, am 17 years-old, and am a senior in high school, for those of you who haven't met me before. :) And I have a question for you all: Are you romantically involved with someone in your daydream world? (Whether this person is completely made up by you or is based off of a real person that you are actually falling for). In my daydream plot, there is a main character, Elizabeth. (Lizzie). She's 17, and is engaged to her fiance, Max. (Also 17). But, I find that, when I am not daydreaming of Lizzie and Max, I literally start to miss them as if they're real people and are real-life friends of mine. I call it 'Character Withdrawal.' I always act as the character of Lizzie, and sometimes I miss Max a lot, as if I actually am Lizzie in my real life and haven't seen him all day. I hope I'm not the only one!
Comments would be appreciated. Thank you!!
Jennifer

Same! I'm also 17 and in high school, and I often feel the need to be with my characters. In a way, MD is a really vital part of the creative thinking process for me, so I often get really stuck if I don't.

Yep!  I met this great, real-life guy and my friends and family starting hinting that he and I should get together.  The thought had me crying, because if I had him, I'd have to give up the fictional man I was in love with.  (Trippy.)  (I think it's not fair to "be in a relationship" with a real person and a fictional person at the same time.  It's not fair to the real person.)

I am guessing that is probably true for just about everyone.  I am sure there are exceptions, but I think it is part of the syndrome.

I don't have an imaginary boyfriend/fiancé, but I have imaginary family and friends that I'm really close to. I've found that when I'm on vacation or at camp (and can't daydream), I miss my imaginary friends and world a lot more than my real family and home. That's one of the things about having MD that annoys me the most, actually.

Hi Jennifer!

I know exactly what you are talking about, I do this too. Sometimes when I'm away from home like at school or something I find myself thinking about them as if they were a real person.
