I want to change my characters, but I've become attached. Help?

I used to go on here a lot more, but now I've sort of stopped... And everything keeps getting worse and worse and worse. It's getting to the point where I'd rather just die than have this awful, stupid thing. And it wouldn't be so bad... If I could just quit daydreaming about these two REAL people. Because you can't control real people. Over 2 years ago, the two YouTubers Toby Turner and iJustine broke up (IDK if y'all know them... If you do, you might think this is funny or creepy or weird)... And they're my characters. I feel creepy... But I can't help it and I feel like the people on this site are the only ones who will understand that. I've tried so hard to DD about other people but it's too sad... I feel like I know them, even though I don't really. I pretend like they're still in love and they miss each other, when in reality, Justine is with her not-so-new boyfriend who I'm sure she'll marry (it kills me think about that) and Toby's missing Olga (another, more recent ex of his), I'm pretty sure. I can't let them go, though. I don't know what it is about Toby and Justine but I can't forget it. And it's over. I've DD'ed about them for 2 and a half years. I still remember the first time I watched a video of Toby's. He was so perfect to me, and I'd never found anyone so flawless before. He was immediately my character. I can't even DD about any other guy for a second. He's it. I want to worry about my own life and my own family but I think I've forgotten how...

im so glad people on here understand this XD
I told my boyfriend my daydream and some of the characters and stuff, and stuff i drew and he figured who one of my characters is modelled after (hes ironically a youtuber too..kinda). it was kind of awkward because its a really random person fsajfldjfasfndvad

anyway, just cause they broke up in real life doesnt mean they have to in your daydream. you could always use them in a new daydream and change their names and make a new plot...

I have created imaginary, pretend characters based off of real people, as well. But, only to be woken up by the reality that the characters I created are really nothing like the actual person. And, it hurts to face the reality of this, but I just had to accept that I didnt fall in love with the actual person...I just fell in love and became attached to who I thought they were, or who I wished they could be. You certainly have the power to change your characters. You really do. :-) Just keep in mind that the characters you've created are most likely not like the real people. You can do this.

Try making your characters less real. Change their names to something else. Tell yourself, "My male character may look like TobyTurner, but he is NOT TobyTurner" and do the same with iJustine. Try dressing them up differently, make them have their own personality, and over time, these characters will be so different that they will NOT be TobyTurner and iJustine anymore.

" want to worry about my own life and my own family" is one of the thoughts we have we malfunctional daydreamers.

dont worry, you will find other characters when you find other people (real or fictional) that catch your interest. i daydreamed a lot about some baristas of a starbucks for many years unitl i found other people that was interesenting for me, and they became a central part of my daydreams. 

currently, they are listening me play the bass guitar at a concert.
