Do you ever get fascinated by certain people?
I don’t want to use the word “obsessed.” Because obsessed implies something insidious or evil is going on.
I’m talking about fascination. When there’s some fringe person in your life (because if you know this person too well, fascination is officially obsession) who you just want to know everything they do so you can study it.
Because that’s really what makes fascination different from obsession. You don’t really want to be involved with the person. You just want to know everything about them. It fascinates you.
And don’t go getting all judge-y on me about how you wouldn’t dream of doing something as creepy as “studying” a person, because I know everyone does it. EVEN YOU.
So come on, ‘fess up. Who gets fascinated now and then?
