Is this normal?! - December 19th 2013, 02:40 AM

Since October, 2012, I've had Littlest Pet Shop as my most favorite show. Ever.

Now, I really like the character Russell Ferguson.

He's the orange hedgehog.

Russell is serious, uptight (Only sometimes), fun loving, organized, and clean.

The thing is..

I'm falling in love with him.

He's a lot like my dream boyfriend. Kind, Organized, Neat, and he's SO CUTE!

I mean, come on! Who could say no to this face?



I think it'd be fine to continue what I'm doing, but, I feel creepy to like him so much, and I'm wondering if I should stop.

I think that people often become attracted to and fantasize about their favorite TV show characters, even cartoon ones. When someone finds a person/character that has the personality or abilities that they are attracted to that person my find themselves having feelings for that person/character.

I know a lot of people that like their favorite character on television shows. I do not believe this is a problem unless your liking for him is becoming a preoccupation and do to it you are unable to function normally. At that point, I'd suggest talking to a counselor or other person you could trust in your life for support.
I hope this is helpful .

I honestly think it's perfectly normal. I know a lot of people that become fixed on certain series and shows for a while. It sounds okay to me

Yeah. It's normal. Oftentimes it's easy to fantasize about fictional characters. Let's face it. They're better than regular folks

My mom once told me that when she was younger, she was in love with Alvin from Alvin and the Chipmunks. So yes, completely normal. As others have said, it's only a problem if it becomes an absolute obsession and you can't function normally.
